I built my box in a manner similar to the initial post in this thread (it is actually pretty easy to do a good job - there's no rocket science involved) and used a 'Cool Blue' unit from Randy at technauticsinc.com . The compressor
is about a cubic foot, the coolant
lines come coiled (and measured to your specs). The cold plate comes with mounting hardware
and thermostat. The entire thing pops in and then you simply join the compressor
to the cold plate using the supplied copper tubing. When you screw the tubing to the compressor and cold plate the system is charged.. hook up 12 volts and the plate starts cooling
in about 5 minutes (5 minutes cooling
AFTER hooking the system up) the entire installation
(unpacking to 'on') took me about 3 hours. I do have drill and 12vdc skills...
I think the cool blue is ok for up to 8 cubic ft...
