Bomb-digitty! Got to measure and look for some of those, they look just about the right size though.

Thanks. That's what's great about these forums - great contributions, great ideas, and take it to the next level.

The test run went well. I did two back to back 10 gallon batches and only had one problem, I had a temp probe mis-read, but after it was fixed no more problems. The box and heat sinks did not get too hot, I did not test the temperature but they did not get any hotter then I could touch. So, if I add a fan it will be this summer, but I must say that after a long day of brewing with an electric set up I will never go back to gas. It's nice to be able to walk away for a few minutes and not have to watch it like a hawk and it's so much quieter.

Just a heads up...I see you are using the ta4 mypins ... if you want the ability to manually control the boil rate on your boil kettle you can swap that one out with the mypin TD4 like this one which works the same as yours only with manual mode as well... they are under $20 shipped..
