    R404a and low side pressure under load

    hey guy just wondering of any one knew or knew where i could find the proper low side pressure using r404 in a prommie under load. I think I need to add a tad bit more refridgerant because under load at 2.3 volts the evap temps drop drasticly and keep rising. yet under load on stock voltage I get may a 1-2 c rise in temps. If I remember correctly we saw about 0 on the low side before.
    Thanks in advance

    0" was the low side pressure that I used too. I also have the same probs with holding the temp at really high heat loads.

    Dont know what the best value really is

    he is refering to the high and low pressure reading of the compressor.

    -10 means the low side (suction side) of the compresser is pulling 10 psi of vacuum.so it would say 10in hg.

    well i am at work so i am only guessing.but -10 or 10 inches of vacuum with r404a should give evaperator temps of below -55c now that is the temp the freon is evaperating at...not the cpu or block temp
