Watercooling project
« on: April 03, 2008, 07:46:41 AM »
Since i see we are full of people knowing PIC's here i need HELP.
Its time for my watercooling project to start taking shape, but, i don't want to just put a peltier and a thermosensor to work. I want to have a stand alone system with its own power supply and some AI (provided by PIC's) and also some visual readings (LCD screen). My only prob is that i have no idea of program PIC and implement them in the project, anyone willing to help with code and stuff? I think this could be a very good project and a good subject for discussion here in the forum. If this turns out well i can sell you the patent  :P

I'm thinking of a watercooling system (w/c from now on) that measures temperature in several points of the circuit, activate the peltier when needed and also in case of emergency shut down the pc or the pump or i don't know what. Don't forget that everything has to be seen in a nice LCD and also controlled (on-off, different readings, etc.). Is this possible? Can it be done, the software part i mean.
Tomorrow i'll post some draft scetches.

The project will be named Heavenly cooled  :D  ;D  :D  ;D  :D  ;D  :D  ;D  :D  ;D

Why don't you place the peltier where it belongs? On the CPU directly?

Directly on the cpu? Man it changes the temperature VERY fast. Won;t this be a problem?

who said it belongs to cpu direct? If you want also to cool the GPU what then, put another peltier?
And i leave aside the fact that due to the big temp differences you got ALOT of moisture in the cpu.
The idea is that one peltier can cool the water in the tank and the water the cpu, gpu, norhtbridge and whatever else you want. By this way it is more easier to controll it and i believe more safer, i've seen cpu's break from the sudden temp difference!
