Chiller recommendation for daily use

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I really want to ditch my oversized computer case ( The tower 900 )

I currently have a dual loop connected for the cpu / gpu.

 

My next build must be smal.

Quick connect hoses, etc...

 

Alphacool his chiller 2000, anyone have one and can give me some advice? 

 

My hardware for now: 

7980xe

2080ti 

Rampage 6 apex x299

32gb 3600 cl15

..

 


Rig: Intel 7980XE @ 4.8ghz - RTX2080Ti @ 380w bios - Rampage 6 Apex - 32gb 3200mhz CL16 trident Z rgb - 960Pro 512 gb - 860evo 2tb - 2x 4tb wb black - 1x 6tb wd gold - AX1500i - The Tower 900 - Full watercooled dual loop D5/pump res combo / 2x 480mm UT60 rad, etc

Don't buy chillers branded by PC component vendors, they are always overpriced and under powered.

 

Consider a Hailea unit like the HC300 or better.

The recommended flow for the stronger units is 2000l/h min and need a ext pump.

that unit from alphacool looks to be an industrial unit used to cool cnc machinerie and lasers etc.

reworkt to cool only as low as 20c ( what is not that bad for water temp to cool ) 

 

Hailea Chiller HC-1000A - 1650 Watt = 870euro where i live 

Alphacool Eiszeit 2000 Chiller 1500w = 999 euro where i live ( incl 10m pump 600l/m ) 

 

the hailea chiller can be used for more stuf, like chill a big bucket full of drinks in the summer :

 

Heilea need to have some fittings to get to 1/4 connections. 

no internal res for buffer 

 

its hard to pick the right one :p

The Hailea chillers tend to be significantly more powerful and can go lower temp.

They may not have huge internal res but building a large res isnt exactly hard. And a high flow pump can be found from most aquarium/pond suppliers.

You would want to use an high flow pump to circulate liquid form a large res to the chiller, then a separate pump and loop using normal PC water cooling parts to go from the large res to the PC.

 

The HC 1000 and 2200 are rather overkill and should only be considered if your going to modify them for sub zero, in which instance you want to find the B variant not the A, as the B uses r22 refrigerant that is much colder than the crap eco friendly r134a that is used in the smaller units and in most modern day chilling devices, such as the Alphacool chiller.

In addition the larger Hailea chillers are loud and you would want to locate them in a separate room to your PC.

 

Modified industrial Laser coolers are only designed to keep temps down to ambient levels, not sub ambient, hence why most will have a minimum temp of aroudn 20c, unlike aquarium chillers that all go down to 4c.

 

 

Anyhow if it were me i would get the Hailea chiller, infact i was going to at one point for a PC build, but that plan has been on hold for a few years now and continues to be for now.
