After looking for pics for the inside of one of these things to modify my own, I found Bit-Tech did the same thing 3 years ago. You can find their review here.
Hailea HC-500A Water Chiller Review | bit-tech.net
I disagree with them in one aspect. If you place a standard water radiator in front of the chiller it reduces initial heat load. This is so you don't overload a smaller chiller with too much heat, because as they didn't mention these chillers are not designed to sustain heavy heat loads. Fish tanks don't go from ambient to damn near boiling in under a minute due to heavy load like what your hardware can do. So unless you want to buy the Koolance mentioned in my previous post, I suggest adding a small 120x2 rad to the mixture for smaller chillers like a 1/4hp Aquaeurousa unit which is not designed for heavy heat loads.
This is essentially what I plan to do. The smaller units like theirs and others do not come with a pump. Considering my interest in these is to reduce the amount of water part clutter in my case, I plan on adding these to the unit itself. Yes this voids warranty, but I don't care. I will be planning to add an actual aquarium pump to the inside of the unit, as well as a standard 120x2 radiator with 120mm AC fans. The radiator will be placed on the return line coming from the PC to reduce initial heat load prior to being applied to the chiller itself. In turn, this reduces the amount of times the compressor should turn on as well, as it doesn't need to cool such a high load. Instead of what I'm assuming they are suggesting, placing the radiator after the chiller has done its job. That's just retarded, and I'm surprised they didn't think about that for a few more minutes before publishing.
