Well, you have chosen a cool project and built at least for short OC sessions :godlike:

Compressor cooling self-made!
It was inevitable ... in my tinkering cellar were 2 devices from which I could not keep my hands off :)
The main "problem" was the cold evaporator, since the dehumidifier was an "air-air" device, had a surface evaporator her, so old stocks searched and an old CPU water cooler found and a copper air cooler, which I then soldered to the evaporator.
Both soldered together (hard) and soldered connections high / low pressure.
Maybe worth mentioning on the side:
I am a heating engineer and have the cold certificate because of refrigeration circuit on heat pumps, so I am not only capable but also authorized to build something like that.
Correct handling of refrigerants is required by law and is also important for the environment!
All beginning ... Housing drilled out, a 2nd old cut and both welded together (seemed expedient because fast and holds).
I coated the motherboard on both sides (with clear varnish) to protect it from possible condensation water
Dispenser dehumidifier refrigerant extracted and disassembled
... let's see how I get that to fit ... I had no direct plan, but just "only" after work tinkered away.
Everything insulated in the best possible way to avoid condensation.
After I built the evaporator, I did a pressure test for leaks, then vacuumed and refilled the system.
... Assembly ...
First dry test run: cooler = evaporator hangs in the air.
After about 5 hours of construction time I had to test the structure, so everything somehow assembled. Fan is just standing around, insulation only makeshift, no regulation, first only via the power switch on the power strip.
First boat and gratifying, 3°C spied :punk:
It's alive! :godlike:
And here's my new waterchiller project :punk:
Here you can buy the compressor cooler.
