Default Killah Chillah (SCCA)

(SCCA: Self Contained Chilling Apparatus)

Working on a few upgrades and bolting the good ole chiller to a plank. Added a second fan for more efficiency (push/pull).

Hopefully I can get her all done and ready to rock & roll in the next few days.

Just in time for the Sandy Bridge Challenge.

Good to see you are still using that.

Yah, my Ln2 contact at airgas left to work on a farm :X wtf?
So we're forced to rely heavily on phase cooling till we can find another economic Ln2 source. So far not so good.

Oh that sucks :(

Hope you can get that thing going real cold.
When Jinu <spits on the ground> made that for me it was for 24/7 use and no temps below ambient so it would frost up.

I think the charge just needs to be readjusted to make it colder.

Oh yeah, its a stout little thing. A lot of fun to play with. The lowest I've got it down to was -22 with a mix of methanol and antifreeze.

Added a 300w psu to run the fans, pump and inline thermometer.

Everything is mounted and in place. All that's left is cleaning up the wiring and insulating.

Thanks! Oh what fun....

Cleaned up the wiring a bit. All Molex and fan connections are accessible and removable, as required. QDC's added for flexibility when plumbing .

Also, removed the AMD mount from the Koolance CPU-360 and cleaned the waterblock. Had a few floaties in there.
Installed the Intel mount, and by the looks of it, its going to be a real pain in the arse to insulate properly.
