    r22 would be much better than r12, though both are deemed "unsafe" these days.

    Hey I used a new past and am having very good results.

    I was able to boot at 5.1Ghz
    That's 600Mhz faster with the new paste.

    That was at 1.8v and I was still below freezing, before I would over heat at 1.7v.

    I don't think your crazy. Paste is for feeling in the holes, if you have a perfect flat surface you can do very well.


    But still I would use paste lol

    i lap everything... still add thermal paste however. though it may be perfectly flat, there are still microscopic pits that need to be filled via paste. the layer i use is extremely thin however, and usually i let the cpu warm up to around 45c before killing the system then turning on the phase so it heats the tim and the pressure presses it into the small gaps.;)

    omg exciting stuff :D never heard of a diy tec. My only knowledge in that area is that it is very combustible which is cool to watch when its not your fridge that is on fire.

    wow... i have spent all night drawing up plans for a 2 stage cascade. i still only have $20 in this so far. i'll order a evap/suction line assembly from teyber here soon as i get a few more bucks. i need to start building my heat exchanger for the cascade. i'll be using a 7k btu embraco compressor and a 10k btu sanyo compressor. i havent decided whether or not to go with a plate HX or to just make one myself.

    nice find there fits!

    IIRC plate HX is moar betterer

    i hope you're not venting the gasses to the atmosphere.......

    you could always make a nice chiller out of that window unit, what's the BTU rating?

    you could alway's remove the electric's and hit it withthe garden hose.....

    I understand about 0.02% of what the last 2 post said, but it sounds really sweet.

    Just seen this thread and looking forward to the end result,cant wait to see this cascade up and running :)

    Good luck with the build Fits,just wish I had the knowledge to put one of these together, unfortunately I don't possess your skills on this front :respect:

    Had thought of getting a single stage system myself but the cost of getting someone to build it for me is just too prohibitive at the moment.

    I take it you have ditched the plans to build it into your TJ07 then,would have loved to seen one in the bottom of that case.I just got mine and am still thinking of ways to mod it,it's a fantastic case.

    hey hey hey now..... i have enough crap laying around to build about 3 phases. i'm trying to gather some money to start building them to sell. they will cost a good bit of change though. nothing insane is cheap.... you guys know that.

    if i were to build decent phase's that everyone could use but still be small and affordable it would cost me at least $300 a unit to build... and thats not figuring in time. i would need to guaranty that they would be better than other units currently sold. like... the vapochill, cost's around $600-$800 + shipping. the shipping alone on any phase is over $150 one way. they are NOT LIGHT. most weigh around 60-80 pounds and have to be VERY WELL packed to ship. even if i sold them for like lets say $500+ shipping... you'd be out $650. but non the less... making it more affordable.... like all you guys wanting $500 cpu's. why not get a $200 cpu and make it worth $500 by putting it UNDER THE ICE.

    TJ07.... not this build. i'll have a special fall build with TJ07 involving chilled water with a similar phase setup in the TJ07. gonna be SICK!

    .... if you dont understand how a phase works... i dont recommend you use one. im not trying to be mean but you need to understand what you are doing and how it works to successfully use anything in life. you wouldn't fly a plane without knowing how to fly would you?

    wow fits! thats crazy! I heard that using pee as a gass will work better than any refridgerant you can buy and it's free! unless you want me pee then it'll cost $75 per ounce, it's extremely high grade super octane pee ;)
