NEW AND IMPROVED!
With the latest in advances in cooling tower technology, ShneekeyCraft Inc. has introduced a new line of reactors which takes full advantage of the C00ld0wn® REV.2d-6///628/104.3 unit.
First, we have our DDoS 6QUv2.0 Pocket Edition.
Micro-cycle time: 200 seconds
Total EU output per full cycle: 144 Million
Number of C00ld0wn® REV.2d-6///628/104.3 units required: 3
While it produces less EU/t than the typical, it takes full advantage of the 575 cooling cycle time of the REV.2d. It is advised to pause between micro-cycles to give the other components time to cool down before restarting. And it only needs three cooling towers.
However, if that isn't enough for your needs, we have something a little... larger.
Micro-cycle time: 197 Seconds
Total EU output per cycle: 288 Million
Number of C00ld0wn® REV.2d-6///628/104.3 units required: 6
As you can see, it cuts the safety margin a little closer to the bone, but you've still got a five second leeway. Double your EU output, double your number of C00ld0wn towers you need. However, the energy output is certainly impressive.
Now, for those with access to GregTech components, there are some interesting options available.
Replacing the Quad Uranium with Quad Plutonium Cells outputs 2880 EU/t for a total of 1,152,000,000 EU per cycle. Yes, that's right, over one BILLION EU per cycle! Of course, with an 84 second micro-cycle time, you'll be needing 14 REV.2d reactors to keep up with the heat. Replacing with 360k cooling cells unfortunately hits the melting point of the heat exchangers, thus actually ends up in needing two more cooling towers.
Using quad thorium cells has an interesting reaction. On the one hand, the micro-cycle time exceeds the cooldown time, meaning you only need two towers to handle all 12 cooling cells. However, at 288 EU/t, there are probably more cost-effective methods of generating this energy level output. Still, 288 Million EU out of a total cycle isn't a bad deal.
The pocket plant is scaled as you might expect. You'll need 7 REV.2d cooling towers for the Plutonium variant, which produces 1440 EU/t.
