    You should have checked if the chiller has enough capacity to run the system at below ambient sustainable. Now it may be that you could only run below ambient because you had cooled a big reservoir first, and only benchmarked for a brief amount of time. 500W of heat is a bit.. What is the capacity of that chiller?

    I was wondering how cooling could get and more extreme and I thought what if you could use a home's geothermal heating system to cool your computer? The extra heat from the cpu goes into your house where you want it and the computer is nice and cool.

    Good thing water condescending from the air is essentially free of metals, ions, etc. and thus, comparable to distilled water. This causes its conductivity to be very low, as well as water being a worse conductor at low temperatures. If that dew was tap water I'd be sweating bullets.

    Why not mod the controller with an arduino with a humidity sensor, so that it can cool to just above the point that water will begin condensing from the atmosphere? That way it will never weep.

    Make a case that holds vacuum, that way you have no condensation to begin with.

  • Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi

    Aquarium pumps are silent. use them and also electric efficient

  • Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi

    Set chiller to 18- 26° no use less than that! would be a waste of electricity. Chiller would produce tremendous heat. its a 1/18 chiller. wont chill instantly.

  • Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi

    They are the most reliable chiller's.

    You could flash the BIOS without a CPU. All you need is a USB flash drive.
    Also water vapor is not conductive, so dew point doesn’t matter.
