All we could
think of when we saw this project was, "Dude, that just isn't
right what you are doing to that CPU"! Here's what John had to
say and a few pics of his Monster (as in Frankinstein) Rig!
Water Chilled Celery Wind Machine!
What up? Heard about your contest. Gonna give it a shot ;)> I
love to tinker. I started out with the stock OEM 300A. Clocked it to
the usual 464mhz. Made a few adjustments to my case. I knew those
metal snips would come in handy one of these days. Cut a hole atop
the case over the CPU and slapped on a fan to blow hot air out. Even
added a grill. Installed a fan to the lower front of the case to
suck cool air in. Also placed case on the floor where it is cooler.
Of course I switched the PS fan to blow out! DOH! Puhhleez! Stable.
After a few months, I wanted to see if I could push it even further.
Well after reading all I could about peltiers and water-exchangers,
I decided to go for it! I fabricated the exchanger using a WinFab
heatsink and PVC tube.
sure takes long to dry. Especially with one being as excited as I to
see if the project would go. Had to wait a good 24 hours for the
stuff to dry like steel!! I kept on touching it throughout the day.
The epoxy. lol Couldn't keep my hands off it. My girlfriend said I
was crazy. Muhhhhaahaha! Connected the return of the exchanger to an
old condenser coil. Then placed the condenser ontop of five (5)
fans! These really BLOW!! Then I ran the tubing into a BIG ASS VAT
of water (25 gallons)!!! My pump (known as the " Little
Giant" to freshwater and marine aquarists) delivers a flow of
160 gallons per hour!!! I used a cheap 56 watt peltier (40x40). This
is running on its own 400watt power supply!! lol
tackle the problem of condensation, I enclosed the Celeron in ACE
Hardware Rope Caulk Weatherstripping. This stuff costs less then $2
a box. Works great!!!
No problems. I really don't understand why people are afraid of
overclocking with water? Pretty good for an ICU nurse by profession,

moe is a 31 year old ICU nurse working in southern California. When
I'm not saving lives, I'm pushing the envelop of my slot1 Celeron
300A. I live in a dessert community called Blythe. It's in-between
Palm Springs and Arizona. Its so HOT here overclocking just comes
you're thinking, "sure great but what new level of overclocking
did this Monstrosity help him to achieve"? Well, here's the
so maybe this isn't the the highest clock rate we have seen but it
is a fairly big jump for the Celeron 300a he used and again this was
not a MHz. contest. However, this is one Bad Ass Chilly Machine in
our opinion and we would like to congratulate John on creating this
freak of nature!
John! You are King Of The Pit! For now.... :-) You just scored the
