running phase 24/7 is more than fine, infact it would probably increase the life span of the cpu,

a single stage unit doesnt draw a lot of power, depending on the size of compressor used it only works out to be about 200-300 watts on start up but once it starts to go down in temp so does the amount of watts it draws,

as far as condensation is concerned, as long as you insulate your board well you will have no problems with condensation,
as for safe volts id stick around 1.7 for benching and unless youve got a seriously big three stage phase unit or your running it under ln2 then i wouldnt put 2.0 volts through it unless you've got deep pockets.

also the price of a decent single stage isnt alot more than a decent cpu loop,

also on a side note: under water i could get my old 965 c3 to 4.2 ghz with 1.52volts but under phase i got it to 4.7ghz with 1.52volts 24/7 stable, i also hit 5ghz but it took 1.7volts but i couldnt get it bench stable but i reckon under ln2 she would of flew.

nice I guess its true that the phenoms love the cold more than voltage Im hopefully getting a phase unit this year and I cant wait

TEC cooling needs the same amount of electric as the amount of watts your cooling. So if your cooling a 150w cpu, 150w of eletric has to be used to keep it cool

I have started to have a crazy idea about making a coolant chiller for my rig, I was wondering if anyone had tried this before. :unsure: I am not trying to get sub-zero temps but rather to cool my coolant to around 10'C my idea was to have a second res outside my case and use a 12V 60W Peltier or two to cool this res.

Now the question is......

Is this a good idea, would it even work :blink:

Ok,

So I take it that this is crazy idea, but I am tempted to give it a go and have seen a rather nice looking donor cooler at my local Maplin's (other local electric stores are available :)) 12v Cooler

From what I can tell and from the size and description this would seem to use a TEC cooler (I guessing a 60W'er) to cool the main compartment, now with just a little bit of modding I am sure I can get a coil in the same space and some cooling liquid which I can then use to cool my main CPU coolant.

I see if I can mock up some pics of my idea and then post them, also I may start a separate post as I am in danger of hijacking this one otherwise :rolleyes:
