One night while i couldnt sleep, i was thinkin about what i would do when i get a tall case and water cooling, and quite a bit of money. I was thinking to get one of those antec server cases, the ones that have like 7 5inch bays, have the top section of it(above the psu, psu mounted like redundant, but only 1) partitioned off and put the insides of a small portable freezer in there, have the holding tank for the watercooling unit in there, have the tube go into the freezer, into the resivoir(cant spell it) then from that being in the freezer(not too cold) it should cool off the water very well, so then you would have ice cold water runnin to cool off the cpu and everything else that is there. then in the front of the case have a drawer to hold some soda, bawls, anything that needs to be kept cold. anyone else thought of doin that, seen it, or think its a great idea, or know it wont work. please give feedback. that will be my future case.

Because the watercooling itself with a cood radiator can handle all the load that your CPU can produce it doesn't "need" that additional cooling with a peltier etc. Sure, it doesn't hurt to add it and if you plan to do that drink cooler you could route the tubes via that icebox. I've been planning that drink cooler too so it would be interesting to see how yours turn out.

theres a better way to do it, but its also much more expensive, get a freeze, and submerge the evaporator part of it in the res, thus cooling the water down to upto -50!! :D

jsut make sure u insulate ur mob ;)

Sounds fun, but have you considered that the water might freeze and get stuck? or is that possible? :roll:

well if i were to do that, then i wouldnt have the thing set to "freeze" the water, it would just be a cold refrigerator. about 40 degrees F. since 32F is freezing point for water, and the water would be kinda warm, the water on the inside edge of the pipes might slowly form crystals and start to swell up with ice, but im not sure, cuz if u got ur proc oc.ed a lot then the water would be pretty hot, so that it wouldnt freeze. or just take out the radiator, that way hot water will be flowing into the freezer.

You can use car antifreeze in the water to keep it from freezing. Also, sticking an entire cooler into your case is a rather inefficient solution. The best practice I have heard of is using a peltier between a coldplate and a water block and mounting that onto your cpu like normal. You have to water proof the waterblock, cpu, socket, back of the mother board etc though. You will get temps of -30C or so. Plus it is a hell of a lot less expensive than buying a mini freezer and alot smaller too.

if your planning on using antifreze make sure that it doesnt conduct electricty even if it is mixed with distilled water.

i know what you mean when you say it sux bein 17 though.
