    Lightbulb igloo 2 - 10 YEARS ANNIVERSARY - Going to do it again....

    Well I have decided to do this again for it's 10th anniversary.
    I did this back in 2008-2009 and it really honed my OC tuning skills.

    The cool thing about this rig is you can cool everything from the whole system with outside air to specific components with cpu and other water blocks. It's the best of both worlds. Plus i get to tune my equipment and when the weather starts to break i use my SS Phaze the my Dragon F1 Extreme Dark Anodized Green,,, SO IT'S A NICE PROGRESSION.

    Link to 2009 Igloo 1

    I will make some Mods based on what I learned,
    but here was the 2008 idea.... [it rocked]

    PREMISS: Using outside air, to pump it into a sealed case and cool everything then exhaust the warmer air. The setup has to not leak cool air so that I don?€™t freeze out my family. It?€™s 1c right now. Plus I feel the cool air will reduce the dew point when switching to Anti Freeze Cooling.
    I have put this in water-cooling since I am moving to antifreeze in a week, but want to do some air tests to work the bugs out.

    Anti Freeze Cooling. I have a 120.3 and 120.2 in a bucket of Antifreeze and Distilled water outside my benching window, I am using 4?€? dryer duct , 2 intake and 2 exhaust to move the air in and out. I am running my hoses thru one of the intake hoses to keep them very cold and not forming any condensation, plus it will lead to my intake module and my Swiftech 1u acrylic Resi and my Little Giant pump. From there they will go to my CPU waterblock and some Koolance Ram Coolers then back out to the outside rads. The loop will be.
    >pump>rad1>rad2>cpu block>mem cooler>resi>pump> and non of this will be exposed to inside air.

    I used a modified Mountian Mods H2go but this time i might use a
    Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box
    I need to dream a little and decide by thanksgiving.


    I think i might go with the CoolerMaster Plus i need a Watercool MO-RA2 Core or MO-RA3
    big honking radiator - no need for fan mounts...
    or one of those monster radiators, anyone have one...

    Pictures of the 2009 build, which worked great...
