that would work fine...just make sure you have a low enough external air temp to handle the heat disapation...im sure 2 radiators would be fine though

what are you missing on your design? It could be as simple as an oversized water cooler...a reservoir...and a fountain pump...with some sort of throtlling valve in the water line to control the flow of cool water into the radiator...and then adjust the valve position to get the desired temp.

the chiller part is what im not sure about right now.  i've got the pump, 1/2" lines, radiator, fans.  i just figured i'll deal with it when the cab is done.

just finished working on the cabinet some more.

revised plans - i won't be water cooling the environment.  HOWEVER, i think i may try using the radiator to manage water temps. 

to that end, the cab now has a 6" duct booster type fan blowing out the back upper left corner.  im also thinking of putting the radiator attached to the back of the cab, with two super quiet pc fans blowing on it.  the water from the DWC can circulate through this (with a pump of course) and that should help to keep the dwc cool!  and if temps in the solution really become a problemt i can always submerge the radiator in a cooler of water with ice in it.


i used 5/8" fiberboard to make a new back and floor to the cabinet.  i'm using the pieces of the front, plus some more fiberboard to make the entire face of teh cabinet look exactly as it did when it was normal, but now the whole front will be a door that swings open.  for hinges i'm using recessed ones that you see on high end cabinets, so there will be no visible hinge from outside! also these hinges are self-closing so they will more or less keep the door from opening on its own.

the DWC is a 10gal rubbermaid bin.  i built a scrog frame from 3/4" pvc that anchors itself to the lid of the dwc tub.

right now the space for the canopy is about 18x30 inches, or just a tiny bit under 4 square feet.  i'm not sure how to light that.  i could go 1x 250w, 2x 150w, or 2x/3x 70w.  any thoughts on this would be interesting to hear.  i dont think i'm going to use a 250w, since the increase in yield wouldnt be worth it.  i'm leaning towards 2x 150w since that would put me at around 75w/square foot. 

pics when i get some.  but if you're curious, the cabinet is an ikea malm dresser, in black.  like this one http://lh3.ggpht.com/_nD6LLf0Hz7Q/SGZfOPSYcJI/AAAAAAAAAEQ/_Oy_DNb57JI/IMG_1435.JPG

forgot to mention im putting in grounded receptacles (as in the inside of my cab will have outlets) so i dont have any power strip bullshit.  2 outlet receptacle on the top of each side.  will just have a pigtail coming out the back for single power cord to plug the whole rig in.  going to see if i can rewire a timer to just time one of the receptacles (fan + light) without having to be in a plug.
