I mean the direct contact with the core method of using heatpipes. A la the "Core Contact Freezer".

I know that heatpipes have been in use for quite some time.

Slaymate's A70 panels arrive back from powdercoating. What a Purty Gloss Black finish!

Ok, Slay next on the menu is airbrushing a mural on the right panel and bezel.

Were getting closer everyday

Today we will be looking at the Cooler Master 1250watt Power Supply. It was a freebie Cooler Master sent me a year or so ago and these pictures were taken then. I'd re-take them but I'm using the power supply at the moment.

I'm almost out of pictures until Bill is done.

I recently upgraded from a 22" wide screen (in the background) to a 28" HD 1080P Monitor.


And I bought a Blu-ray player DVD Burner Combo






And these came in today so I'll be adjusting the V-10 tomorrow.

Well the V-10 is just a piece of crap. The different peltiers made no difference at all. I even removed the control module, as it's just an on and off switch, and ran the peltier straight off the power supply. It still made no difference. I even removed the peltier and tested it. The peltier is good for a 2 to 3 degrees Celsius reduction at best. What's even worse, for the V-10, is my temps are cooler with the V-8. I'm back to waiting for the next new cooling idea.

Here are a couple pictures of my failed attempt.
