Willie,

Is THIS a good-enough of a hint ?

Looks to me like he has his radiator, pex to hook up to his muck floor pex, a battery to drive the car fan, and the only thing left is hot air.  And Hermit has no shortage of that! [smile]  Then there's the slate.......

Bang on, Dan, pertinent as ever (or is that, IMPERtinent).

HA HA !

(actually, I was just showing off my new armchair, the rest is just junk for my new-year's clear-out !)

Dan, if this thing works, I will gladly sell you ALL my slates [biggrin]

Hello Stmbtlwe You mentioned space as a concern on the Aretha build.I know that some of the higher end computers use liquid cooling You can source computer parts like this from pc build sites, The units usually consist of a heat sink and axial type, PWM temperature triggered fan. This may be prove useful on future designs. Nice GH looks like R & D has gained a new member. Regards Mattie

I was using my phone earlier so was unable to post links,heres a few examples,there's plenty more out there to choose from too.

https://www.google.ie/search?q=LIQUID+COOLED+HEATSINK&biw=1920&bih=1042&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=lAm4VK6SNpHB7Abq_YC4DQ&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#tbm=isch&q=WATERCOOLED+HEATSINK

On the gaming PC websites you should get the fan and heat sink together as one unit.

All well and good but unless you're talking about a Cray supercomputer, I doubt they're anywhere near big enough.  Old Sol puts out a lot of heat.  The heat exchanger in my little experimental unit is 10"x12"x2" (plus two fans).  Full-size Arethas use something on the order of a radiator for a 150hp engine.  I don't think you'll find the equivalent on a PC website.
