Project Dark Trooper - In Progress

UPDATE: 09-15-2021 - System has been getting put through its paces. It currently has a R134a Aquarium Chiller in line with Q/Ds to allow the system to run with or without the chiller. The system will also have a 480mm Cross-flow Radiator in an Ice bath to chill the unit to far below ambient and achieve below freezing temperatures. The over-all goal of this system is to get back into OCing and eventually teach people how to water cool, chill, overclock, tune, etc a Custom PC.

Currently the system maintains about 26ºC-32ºC on the chiller under back to back to back stress tests and benchmarks. The entire system uses Q/Ds to allow any combination of cooling. The final, end result will include the PC Loop, Chiller and Ice Bath with a 3rd Radiator. Entire system hold about 3.5L of fluid.

Nerd Specs: Still tuning - 4.60Ghz All Core @ 1.385V, RAM @ 3.8Ghz C14 @ 1.5V, GPU @ anything I throw at it.
