this skill set must have come from Frankenstein-ing stuff at the brewery, right?

Not quite complete, but a monster all the same.

The active cooling is not on.It's ready just not going.
That's gotta wait till ski season is done.

Looks like I have some pictures to fix.

--------


So it's ~500 days since this rig went online.

I have not done a single fuckin thing to it, except process several hundred terabytes of video.

The copper/aluminum/brass/stainless steel Isolated watercooling loop I put together is flawless. The glycol is very close to clear still. There is zero evidence of any electrolytic corrosion.

I think I might add 50-100 mL of new propylene glycol mix, but that's just cause the air is finally out of the system.
-------

I have not extensively used the pelt coolers. Dun need em…...Electricity not worth it....same story with Peltiers as always.

-----

At this point, I'm seriously considering putting this rig on air again and setting it up as a 'thin client' like my other one.....Heating the garage...But this is mostly to take pictures of every part of the cooling loop for the "I told you so" ….

Haha

:ROFLMAO:

March 3 2021 update

Still running flawlessly no changes....same loop liquid 2 years later.
I'm really tempted to just ignore it another year.
