    Man your previous avatar was awesome :p



    The phase change unit draws a lot of wattage so you'd be looking at a giant electricity bill, theoretically you could run it 24/7 but it is impractical, correct me if I am being wrong though

    That plus the constant worry of condensation on the board... Its not a 24/7 thing. ;)

    sp a chiller would be better for 24/7 use along with watercooling?

    sorry for the hijack DOM

    Yes a waterchiller would be good to run 24/7, just be sure to don't go much lower than ambient temp to avoid condensation, that would be killer.
    I was thinking to adopt such a setup, you could just ditch the radiator and use the waterchiller, it's enough.
    Sorry about the electricity bill bit, I don't know which supply plan you are using. Luckily I've gone all green and that's not a problem for me too :toast:

    I've ran the ss for like 10hrs a day for 1-2weeks

    It just has to insulated good but you can have a builder tune it for what kind of load and temp mines tuned for 300w -45c range full load

    I just got one the other day, and a motherboard for it yesterday.

    About to go hook it up now. Was just hoping for 5GHz, but geez. Who knows. :D

    Yeah who knows...on single stage phase change like DOM or other subzero cooling. You can get 5 on water or maybe even air if you're really lucky.

    Stay away from Vantage and 11 with a 2500k. Even at 5.9Ghz, an average 2600k (5.4Ghz+) will likely beat it with HT...that is unless you had a terrible 2600k...
