  1. indeed, I see the same from Philippines. Its indeed blazing fast. now a pleasure to browse hardware library 🙂 thanks to the team
  2. just noticed that on PCMark10 we get global points but there is no hardware points? is it by design or just bug?
  3. there is a planned maintenance this weekend so hold on subbing. please check leeghoofds messages
  4. Many thanks to the team. Change is coming :-)
  5. im not going to pay in more money via patreon.. this is ridiculous. why have competition where we need to start subsriocinb to a new system... I am a proud member of Hwbot.. could not care less about patreon system.
  6. i did lengthen the cap tube to 2.3 meters and now the suction pressure in general is much lower compared to before. I cant hold my old 2600K steady as it still draw too much power i guess. around 150-160W when i bench so the evaporator heats up. close to 0C
  7. some new toys for boys arrived so time to rebuild. A bit bigger compressor. weigh 10kg. and then new condensers. I got 2 and was thinking i can put them in parallel so they use the same strong fan.
  8. I just removed gas as thats about what i can do. how would i get more condenser flow? Can i lengthen the capillary tube to get the low side lower in pressure?
  9. Thanks Mythical tech and Obijuan83 indeed this helps a lot :-). I have ordered a bigger compressor and a bigger condenser just arrived. I have looked also at the secop site and found a software for being able to check up on what capillary tube length and diameter to use. https://www.secop.com/fileadmin/user_upload/solutions/compressor-q-and-a/pdf-files/secop-capillary-tube-selection-software.zip Its clear also from what I have read up on various sites that my capillary tube is far to short in as much as the cooling effects and balancing is much more difficult when it is too short. The sof
  10. Uploaded a quick blog post of my learning so far with the Single phase change unit i built. Building Single Stage Phase Change unit for computer - Globetrotter Tech Any advice what i really need to do to reach -30 to - 40 C on the unit is most appreciated even if it means rebuilding the whole unit 🙂
  11. Thanks. seems like I built a relevant system. It sounds a bit strange that I would need to change the design if i need to fill with other gas. That however might be the case. Overall I request input as to what to change as per my post above preferably with enough details so the reply gives me ways forward to try. I have no problem changing anything in the system but i would like to do so systematically. If current system is optimized -20C then what would changing gas do? would i reach -30 -40? and then what gas? or do i need to change the capillary tube or change the length and then
  12. Thanks for feedback. I am sure i dont have anything optimum of any sort at present but i want to try out to understand before i potentially make a change in for example the gas just to ensure i limit danger :-) while learning. With a lowside pressure of about 40psi i get around 120 -130 psi on the high side just before filterdrier when the system is on. When system is off the system stabilizes at around 40PSI on both high and low side. With that i managed to get the temp now to around -20 on the evaporator when i run a G3258 2 core 55w TDP processor. The room temp i have is around 22C. i
