    Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly debuts its latest innovation in the quest to design the most superior PC on the planet: the Cryo-TEC Cooling System. Based on the Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system developed by Digital Storm that chills liquid below 0°C, this redesigned version is smaller, more powerful and utilizes direct contact heat dissipation technology.

    The new and improved Cryo-TEC cooling system from Digital Storm is a radical leap forward in cooling technology. The Cryo-TEC system utilizes the same thermo-electric technology as Digital Storm’s previous generation Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system; however, the Cryo-TEC cooler now incorporates new direct contact heat dissipation technology. By placing the processor in direct contact with the thermo-electric cold plate, the Cryo-TEC system is more efficient in lowering processor temperatures below 0°C and increasing overclocking performance. The Cryo-TEC cooling system also includes a control board designed by Digital Storm engineers that automatically optimizes cooling power and efficiency.

    Integration & Affordability
    The design of the new Cryo-TEC cooling system is elegantly simple allowing for installation in almost any customizable full tower Digital Storm computer. Also, improved design efficiencies realized on this next generation cooling system allows Digital Storm customers to integrate this powerful component into their dream systems for $500 less than the Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system. This means that even hardcore gamers can enjoy the supercharged performance that was only previously available to enthusiasts. But the Cryo-TEC is not just for gamers and enthusiasts; with its availability on Digital Storm’s new and upcoming PROTUS V line of workstations, creative professionals can take advantage of the Cryo-TEC’s revolutionary performance to ensure that heavy processing tasks don’t overheat and damage their CPU.

    “With its brilliant simple design and complete compatibility, the Cryo-TEC system represents the next technological leap in processor cooling systems,” commented Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “It out-classes and out-performs standard liquid cooling systems with its incredible design and it can only be found exclusively at Digital Storm.”

    Digital Storm gaming computers with the Cryo-TEC Cooling System are available for purchase at www.DigitalStormOnline.com.

    I'd like to see some numbers of this thing. Also, it seems very stupid it will be only available to Digital Storm system buyers. Someone else is going to make this but better and offer it to all of us people who build our own rigs. I will say that Digital Storm makes some damn nice machines though. For some reason I just remembered Northwest Falcon, does anyone know if they're still around(will google right after this post :) )?

    I wonder if you can fill your case with silicone oil, not have to worry about the condensation. Like a homebuilt hardcore reactor

    Some people use an "artists eraser" (kinda like dough) to cover the top half of the mobo. Others prefer blu-tac because it's easier to remove.

    they say its direct contact with the CPU, this means that the TEC pad is the size and hsape of the CPU.
    this should eliminate air contact with the outside? and thus no condensation?

    imma little sceptic on this though :p

    Very important for cryo, TEC and Compressor Setups. Also seen foam pads that insulate and isolate the socket area for compressor type coolers, you really need both, to keep moisture out of the area, and the cold from leaking onto other components where condensation would occur.

    So this is for 24/7 use? If it is this is a awesome thing. But I thought the original reason people didn't use stuff like this 24/7 is because of things like condensation? If they solved that problem that is awesome and they are going to make a million bucks off this idea. If not this is going to be a big flop and only for a certain crowd.

    You would need quite a bit of juice to get those frosty results in the picture under the heat load of an overclocked quad cpu. It would be interesting to see how they intend on powering it.

    Also, from the looks of the picture the TEC doesn't actually touch the CPU. It sits between the waterblock and a piece of copper, which is still fine.

    the copper is a part of the peltier cooler.

    If it's cooling below ambient thermal energy will be taken away from more than just the CPU.




    @ Above TEC cooling inside a oil rig :eek: Why have I never thought of this ?! :toast:

    I've been waiting for them to perfect their sub zero designs. They are totally unnecessary for average users, but really sweet regardless.

    I must have one. Can't wait to see it in action.

    One thing that I've noticed for the past 6 months on their site: they still keep socket 1366 processors as the top of the line. I guess 1366 still has slightly better boards for 3 & 4 way SLI, but I just thought it was strange. I guess it make sense though as 2011/X79 is going to officially replace 1366 as the new high end enthusiast line.

    I'm with you on this DDD. As we live in places that have very high summer humidity, it might be very easy to drop the CPU below the wet bulb temp and then it will fizz. The whole CPU region, especially the back of the socket will need sealing.

    Some years back now Wile-e was busy burning down rigs with a TEC, He made some spectacular pictures lol. I expect however that this set up will have relays ready to go (to ensure the water pump is running when the TEC is on)

    I can see alot of noObs shorting there hardware out :laugh:

    Rickss69 uses some Hollywood make up rubber you mix up and pour around anything you want to protect... I just cant remember what the name of the product is. Anyways nice idea and cant wait to see it in action :pimp:

    I wonder what kind of thermal load it can handle.

    Liquid electrical tape is common, as well as artist eraser, and a spray on silicon conformal. :toast:

    That stuff was TERRIBLE under LN2 for some reason. I think it got too rigid under the extreme cold and cracked.

    Did anyone keep in mind that the i7-2600k going below 18C become stupid and slow so how will you gradually get it up to stable 25C to 30C where it like to be, 12ghz overclock with this cooler ? or running the cpu for 2 hours to get warm enough to perform ??
