I currently have a hobby of modding (modifying) desktop computers and would like to combine work with hobby and come up with a refrigeration cooled pc.
In case your not aware some hard core computer geeks (meant nicely) are spending upwards of $300 for a "phase change" cooling system.
I'd like to construct a system, meaning a pc cooled refrigeration unit.
Either by cooling glycol to directly cool the pc compoments or by directly cooling the pc components with refrigeration (more difficult)
Since as far as I know the smallest txv is 1/4 ton this is WAY overkill for a pc as far as cooling goes so I'm thinking glycol, meaning cooling a glycol reservior to circulate and air/cpu cool the cpu so the refrigeration system can cycle off.
What I need is the lowest btu compressor and smallest capacity txv to make this work, I'm not even considering cap tube unless you guys can convince me otherwise.
As soon as I can come up with a btu load I'll let you know but for now I'd guess it's less than 1/4 ton cooling.
