    Question...does anyone know how many BTU an intel Core i7 CPU would put out....overclocked...i just need a good close number...nothing exact..

    The reason is that i am looking at Chillers....and the chiller i am looking at says it can take 1200BTU, its a 1/10 hp chiller....with a min flow of 158gph and max of 270gph.....its already expensive for new...and i dont want to go up in Horsepower if i dont need too... anyone?

    For comparison, my 9550(stock) is rated at 95w, 324BTU.

    How low temperature-wise are you wanting to go?

    well ill be running Glycol "antifreeze" and water..So no lower really than 38F...mabe a tab lower but depends on how the computer is setup...The Chiller is digital programmable, so i can raise temps up and down... i am thinking when in windows have the CPU running at 3.8ghz...run water temps just enough to do the right job..."that way compressor isnt kicking on and off" and turn up the heat when i play sum games...4.4+ghz and drop water temps to 34F at that point....

    i am still 2-4 weeks out.. 4th of july weekend, i might take my boat out...time to own at the lake with the outboard...so it will have to be when i get back..:biggun:

    Well....looking at chillers are pointless when i found this, i forgot about it acutally....does it work like advertised or is there some other bs to it all? and how well does it work? any one with experience....and what about insulation. i need it all folks. thanks.

    With a good quality Phase Change you can get temps below 0c, depending on equipment. They are loud and chug power. Imagine it like being next to a small fridge. Right next to it.

    Humm. i am also thinking about using a nice TEC unit with a good chiller that i can find to get water temps to 35-45 F delta. most people will take a TEC unit and use a good radiator to cool the hot plate. well the best thing to do really is to use the TEC with a good Water Chiller, while it adds to the electric bill....yes, but like it matters anyways with someone like me with 3 vid cards and an oced system...

    I think the TEC would cool alot better this way. dropping tec temps even more and also faster. This setup would also have a easier failure rate. but at lower cost and would most likely get you "close enough" to phase change ect.

    Does anyone know how many AMPS a good regular phase change cooler eats up

    TEC will get you close to 0c, and its effectiveness depends heavily on the watercooling used to cool the hot side.

    I know this thred is old....but i thought if anyone wanted to know what there CPU thermal output in wattage.... here is a calculator that works great.

    Good for knowing what type of refrigeration system would be best.
