yeah alot, not much at +5c (water block that is) thats why i didnt use a massive compressor. -20c to -40c water chillers too hard to insulate, water blocks not design to be insulated easily for low low temps.

saving the larger version of compressors for -40c to -50c direct die coolers.
basically i have charged this thing once it gets to about -8c liquid (-15c suction line leaving the chiller hx) it freezes the compressor.
if i insulated the res that would get better temps again.
by over charging it i hope to have the compressor running for shorter periods, not lowest temps.

I got the enclosed foam from clark rubber. I used paper as a trace mechanism. Place it on top and press again socket or thing thatís tracing then transfer to enclosed foam and cut accordingly.

i get it sweet adventaully.
I managed to get the pump going.
I re piped the water lines so both exit the front to the water block.
I put the thermostat under the insulation, but its still not switching it off.
Insulating the res has made a big difference in temps.
I might have to get another thermostat and see if I can get that one to work better.
