    Default Chill Box... Who's tried this?

    Was fixing a blast chiller fault at work which has led me to wonder if I could adapt this to cool a motherboard

    Anybody tried this? want to discuss the issues?

    what chillbox are you talking about?
    I was thinking to customized a chillbox by incorporate the Boreas chiller with my existing watercooling system.

    I'm under preliminary designing state hopefully I can push it forward due to tight budget

    Ok the Idea goes like this:
    Think of the radiator setup on your w/c system. For me thats the one outside

    Think of the same setup with big fans this time inside a sealed box together with MB (complete)

    The remaining components like hard and optical drives psu etc. remain outside the box.

    Now add phase pump and prv and specify radiators to handle phase.

    So pump > outside radiator >inside box > prv > inside radiator > pump.

    Outside rad works just like yours... inside rad cools fixed volume of air which is blown over MB etc with normal air cooling equip. and big fans recirculate air

    Lastly if the idea works fill box with helium to remove condensate problems and for better heat transfer.

    The target: to run at slightly sub-zero to maybe eventually minus 30 ish temps for whole board where cpu Idles near zero

    During the trial all the components will be sourced from scrap or second user unless someone wants to show me my thinking is flawed

    I think it's too extreme for a desktop cooling though. It will cost too much and no matter how carefull you are on the planning the design, if the temperature at sub-zero the condensation likely will occurring. And on the other hand your computer will be monstrosity looking. I guess you have visited the XS forums, they have some crazy ideas about this type of cooling and it built like a tank.

    ok.if i can source the parts will try to do this. no rush. yes it could be ugly but I reckon i can get this into one of the big cubes from mountain mods although whether i'll start with a real one.......

    I've looked at a lot of things at xs but actually not this...yet.
