Tell me what you are interested in knowing?

First off, do you have a basic understanding of refrigeration?

You will find a pretty good idea of what you are looking at HERE

There are a lot of things to concider in this. The one I always cringe at is condensation.

Now I have to say 2 things as a Staff member.....

1) Please remove the pic from your sig. and take a moment to read over the FORUM RULES . It is clearly asked that you not post pics in your sig.

2) You would have probably been better off if you had posted this in the "Cooling & Temperature Monitoring" topic.

I hope you find the answers you are looking for here. We have a lot of real smart people who have developed a lot of cool Cooling projects. SJ news (found on the Front Page ) links to some way sick setups from time to time.

A basic understanding of how refrigeration works is crucial. www.refrigerationbasics.com has a real good beginner's tutorial on this. After that, you can go to www.phase-change.com. There are a lot of people over there steeped in the lore of refrigeration systems in general and cooling PCs in particular. One guy that hangs out there (or used to) is named Gary. There is also a guy on there who sells custom cpu blocks for phase-change cooling systems. Both of them really know their stuff.

Your biggest hurdle is going to be your cpu block, and working out the size and length of capillary tube to use for optimal performance, unless you use a TEV instead. Beyond that, you'll need to get a suitable condensor and compressor (note, most fridge condensors are NOT suitable; they aren't designed for the heat load). Also, most fridge compressors are in the 500-700 BTU range, meaning that you may not be able to hit the -45C temps that you are looking for without a LOT of tweaking.
