    Bummer there mate, caught the department of consumer affairs fella on the News during the week he said ~800 people have been affected by Nintek's receivership and its not likely they will see a cent of their money refunded... Had heard too many bad stories of peoples dealing with Nintek to ever even consider buying anything from them myself.

    hey chainbolt, basically nintek is an online shop for PC parts, i just had 2x V2000 cases on order from them at $735.
    So far they are up to 75k, but the company thats dealing with it says its over that. theres some info on it here

    Vapour LS mod, replaced the flex line with a kayl evap and the new 1366 mounting kit. This unit has the basic on off switch and no controller. Instead i installed a k-type temperature probe. Unit did -20c at 260w -28c at 240w and idle 60w @-38c

    Nice... for 1366 mounts, maybe make 2 plate adaptor for existing kayl mount/775 blocks ?

    Just something as simple as 2 plates which have 1366 mount holes, but attach to existing 775/universal mount holes ?? If you know what I mean ? :)

    thanxs guys

    192.168.0.1 i though the southern cross would be a good icon for an australian made pot :D the holes go almost all the way down to the bottom of the tube to transfer the heat :thumbup:

    New little project, some new rotary compressors arrived today 1.5 - 2hp, will start off with a 2hp unit single head on the cpu, see how cold it can get load on the i7 950. The picture doesnt really show just how big the compressor is, but its massive :weirdo:

    thanxs CHemical, nar i dont think so, bet they couldnt wait for the event to finish and get out of there heheeh

    thanxs mate

    When I say starting off, I mean only just finished building it the other night now im fine tuning the system. Never used a compressor this big before on a single stage so its different to what im use to and needs fine tuning. These are the coldest temps so far. I can run colder I have found but as a result the compressor overheats after 2hrs of benching. So will have to add more refrigerant which results warmer temps.
    Next I will be fine tunning the metering device to adjust the gass flow in the system.
    It’s a little restrictive at the moment I have found. Away for a week for work, when I get back will get into the fine tuning hehe cant wait.
    When it comes to designing the case I will be adding two fans in the side of the case to directly cool the compressor as the rotary compressors run hot between 100c - 110c. at 125c the internal thermal cutout kicks in and cuts the power to the compressor so it doesn’t overheat. All compressors have this feature.

    THis unit is just research for future units. From this build I will know the required dimensions to make its case etc.
    I have also been considering if I should design the case in such a way that the pc power supply can be installed in the back of the coolers case to aid the open case 3dmark benchers that don’t use pc cases. This way the motherboard will rest on the top side of the cooler case to aid those that want to bench sub zero on the graphics cards. This isn’t a 24/7 style cooler more the extreme bencher heheeh.
    Be nice to see 3 heads at – 45 to -50c load benching 3dmark at 5ghz and 2x GTX295s at what every crazy clocks they can reach at these temps

    100-110C compressor temps :eek: how much cooler are they with 2x fans cooling them ?
