Arqtik Sells Individual TECs!

July 13, 2012

You read that correct! We now sell individual TECs. These are not the standard TECs you find on eBay either; they are less power hungry when run at standard voltages. These are the very same modules that we use in our cooling solutions. Specific information about them can be found on the product page in the store. A new section has been created for them.

At the moment, we only have 62mm - 400Qmax TECs, but in the coming weeks we will also be getting 40mm - 225Qmax and 50mm - 340Qmax.



IMPORTANT!!! It's About the Store!

June 28, 2012

Starting July 2nd, the store will not be able to fulfill any orders until July 9th. Certain events are arising that will cause problems in shipping out orders. If your order trails into that time period, it will be continued and completed as soon as possible, but will not be able to be worked on during that time period.

All sale orders, will be put into a queue and will be completed one at a time until they are all finished. We apologize for the inconvenience!


New Cooler Calculator

June 4th, 2012

If you have ever been curious about what your temperatures would be like if you had one of our coolers; the single/quad direct die, or a chain of chillers, then you're in luck!

We have finished and released our first version of the calculator. You just need to enter your current CPU configuration such as stock clock and voltage, your overclock if you have one, which chiller you're interested in seeing, and current CPU temps. The current version does make a few assumptions and it's not exact, but it should give you a rough idea of how cool your CPU should run if you match it up with one of our coolers.

You can download it here, or you can check out how to use the program here.

 

Understanding  the Controller Display

May 28, 2012

It has been pointed out that the display on the Bit-Chill controller and the others isn't actually that intuitive to understand so it will be quickly and easily explained:

H = Humidity (%)

A = Ambient (°C)

B = Block Temperature (°C)

             or

B = Water Temperature if you own the chiller (°C)

C = Duty Cycle (%)

D = Dew Point (°C)

T = Target Temperature (°C)

- Measured and calculated percent of moisture in the air.

- Temperature of the air surrounding the sensor.

- Temperature of the cooler on your CPU.

 

- Temperature of the chilled water on your CPU.

- Percentage of how often the cooler is powered on to achieve the set temperature.

- Temperature at which condensation will form on the coolers cold side.

- Set block temperature at which the cooler will attempt to match. (Cannot go below dew point due to restriction in condensation protection)
