Yep.
I'm using up parts I already have....the only thing I need to actually buy is the psu (27volts , 35 amps) 400$ ....I'm lining up a 350 amp TIG unit to do the welding ,copper is on the way,makin the box should be easy.
I'm basically doing what you wanted to Deano.
Solid state cooler for watercooling.
---

Here's the estimated specs on this unit :
18"x5"x2" total size/no insulation

Electrical Dissapation : ~800 watts
Thermal Dissapation : ~1400 watts

We will see what happens.........Xeon 6144's are rated (Thermal marketing speak) 150 watt each.........but , actual max power is 350 watts each.

Ski season is still on , no work on this yet , pics in 45 days.

Ok.......update.

My custom cables from Mod-One are being built .I have found some better data cables as well.

I was not able to find a big enough welder to do copper.I'm using Aluminum instead to fabricate the cooler/reservoir......I have the BSPP taps for the watercooling fittings.I have managed to use mostly fittings Deano gave me....putting together a Dazmode order now.
I have the 1000W 27v/35 amp PSU ordered.
I'm in the process of disassembly right now so I can drill holes etc...

Oh Baby !!

Hehe...

:thumb:

edit :
Please forgive the 'yellow' in those pics......bad white balance.

edit 2 : the first run of this unit is as follows ;
Peltier voltage 30 volts , 34 amps.....power at the plug was 1160 watts.It did not frost up, but then it's designed for 650 watt pump, not -60 temp.
Measured temp was -8c . (open, no insulation or load.)
:biggrin:

A beast of a machine......




Edit: the pics actually showed up while I was typing........strange and hilarious.

Hehe..

I've sent in my second order from Mod-One, the rest of my power cables are 2 weeks away.

I have also managed to find stuff I didn't think I would ;
Like 90 cm ,right angle mini-sas to SATA breakouts.
or a USB 3.0 20 pin right angle adapter.....
Both are on the way.

My watercooling is 75% complete too.
