Finally going to get some use out of the TEC unit I bought last year but not for it's intended useage, I'm currently working on an idea with it. Already know what it might be used for but application of it is the thing to work out. Already checked it and cleaned the factory TIM from it to apply better stuff, the factory TIM job wasn't that great anyway. Once I finish the prep work I'll test the unit itself to confirm it's working then go from there with the modding.
Don't know and not expecting anything spectacular on that. The use I have in mind it should be able to handle though since it won't be used with a CPU, that much I can say ATM. I'm still working out the best useage for it and that's why I haven't stated what it will be used for but obviously an easy to cool piece(s).

Will make a nice chipset cooler Rods. Looking forward to the build and actual usage of this peltier. What ever you're chilling, and depending on the TEC (should have the number on it) you want to plate the cold side. edit:(ahem copper plate) TECs are like fridges. The don't remove heat from sources that produce heat very well. You may want an H80 or something bigger for the hot side for best results. I have plenty of change, but that's my two cents at this time....
I did a quick test after re-TIM'ing the base and ran it - I also (Lucky accident) forgot to stick the thermal probe into the base, that allowed me to try something and see what might happen. I found it does get cold to the point condensation starts to form and that's good, but I have to take the probe and stick it into the fan cooler on the unit (Hot side) to trick it's controller into thinking it's gotta work harder.
It does have a thermal limit however and if the probe detects too much heat it will trigger instability into the system as a safety of sorts.
So I'll have to do a few things and see how it develops.

Vinster: Where my parents lived they made that change also. I think it was because the storm drains were backing up and people started charging the city for upkeep on the section between the house and the city drain. with no proper demarcation they stopped

austin86: Vinster its odd here, gutters can't go to a storm drain anymore but they can drain into the street right next to one lol. I think its more of a city property vs residents property thing, IDK all I know is the town asked us not to drain my gutters into it.

austin86: zila1 dirty sumps are the worst, my parents sump is always dirty and if its not the sump is the drain from the other low spot in the basement that goes to the sump thatch dirty, they can be a lot of work

Vinster: for storms, we can still drain to the storm drains. there is a storm culvert in my back yard. everything drains to it (except sewer obviously)

Vinster: son is clear so far, baby's day 2 went overall well.. no puking today. just had to keep her fever under control. shes a tough little cookie...
Aug 11, 2022 20:58:10 GMT -5
Vinster: Thanks, 1st day for me starting to feel normal (Day 7)... Partner is still really sick (her Day 10).. Wife can't taste or smell... (her day 4).. daughter feels normal now (her day 10) but she had it the lighest...

zila1: I just want to keep everything in tip top working condition and clean at all times. I can't stand a dirty sump pit.

zila1: You are very fortunate to have that system grandfathered in. They are very strict now as to how and where you can drain storm water. I had a similar situation at my old 100 year old home.

austin86: I'm amazed I not been told to remove it, even more amazed that it works. We were told we can no longer have the gutters drain into storm drain witch I get. Its a big home and it was becoming a problem with all the rain we get here.

austin86: In my case my home is on a slight incline and whoever built it rigged up a gravity fed system that feeds the water table into a storm drain in the street. I been told I can't do anything with the system as its grandfathered in and is not longer legal.

austin86: zila1 My home is right under the water table and does not have a sump. There are some ways a round it granted they are not always a option or all the great.

ShrimpBrime: Dogs are always crazy in their own yard. Mine are no different and why I need a fence so bad.
Aug 11, 2022 7:08:04 GMT -5
zila1: Now they can't see me anymore cause of the fence. Her dogs are crazy.
Aug 11, 2022 0:34:25 GMT -5
zila1: But she put her new fence right along side my damaged fence. We both inherited problems but watcha gonna do? At least those trees are gone and now she has a nice privacy fence there. I'm glad cause her dogs were trying to eat me.

zila1: First she had to have a bunch of trees cut down around the area she wanted the fence. They were all in my yard working because the trees were growing in my fence and she wanted them gone. Now my fence is a mess.

zila1: ShrimpBrime: it never ends Jon. Just when you think you've got it all done something else happens. Home ownership is real. The lady next door to me just had her fence installed. She told me she's been waiting all summer for it.

zila1: Vinster: Oh my gosh I am so sorry you have that in your family. I will keep good thoughts for you. Covid is just horrible.
Aug 11, 2022 0:26:20 GMT -5
Vinster: only person without it is my 15yr old boy. he's keeping to his room isolating from the house plague. 0 out of 10... would not recommend... even for the weight loss.
Aug 10, 2022 23:28:57 GMT -5
Vinster: having covid sucks... whole family has it.. it's been taking 1 member at a time... we've been fighting in for 2 weeks and today we lost again today, my 9 month old now has it... this shit is awful.
