    Its a extreme cooling solution, its really good for overclocking as it creates sub-zero temps. Its expensive also, you only need it if your a huge overclocker. It basicly compresses gas and turns it into a liquid whick is very cold and it sent to the area its cooling like a cpu. It goes through the block thats is on the cpu and it turns back into gas from the heat of the cpu and the air and it goes back and gets compressed again. Then it goes through the same thing over again. Hope this clears it up for you.

    What are you cooling to need phase change? You wont need it unless you do some big overclocking, if you get a good water system you'll be set. Or unless you system runs extremly hot for some reason. :rolleyes:

    It sounds like something heat pipes use.
