Unfortunately I don't have enough Novec 7000 to complete the project at the moment.
I ordered a bottle back in January, it arrived the week of the 27th April after many delays. Not enough time to complete.
This is a full immersion cooling project. An acrylic tank will contain a high end gaming system immersed in coolant.
The coolant will boil, removing heat from the system, the vapour will then be condensed back into liquid using a custom water cooling system.
To give an idea what that looks like here are some prototypes, note the bubbles and drips! The final thing will be fully immersed.
System monitoring, cooling and lighting will be control by an Arduino Micro. LED lighting will provide feedback on system state by changing colour/pattern.

Some pictures of components to get the ball rolling:
This is my second attempt at a Novec PC, the first got as far as the prototype. It worked but also told me I was doing it wrong so scrapped that one and started a complete redesign late last year.
