    Nice setup, maybe its not the absolutelly prettiest one (i give you 8/10 for looks) but pretty extreme :) I like the phase-change cooling, how did you made it? What are the temperatures at full load on CPU and what about the power consumption during gaming?

    Hi m8. Thank you for your comments.

    I am more after raw power than looks :) although it does look very well with the windowed panel on. Will add final picture later.

    As for the phase unit. It is made by LD. Temps on idle are -45c. Full load -36c :)
    The phase unit draws 300watts (has its own psu) rest of system around 6-700watts.

    I only use it for folding/benching/gaming for normal use i use a laptop.

    I voted 10/10 because:

    I am giving you a 10 to offset the idiot that gave you a 4

    thanks Ranse.

    I thought about not posting it on here because there are always these jelous people that give low scores for nice hardware that they can't have.

    but mainly posted here to give others idea's and maybe some people never heard of phase change so they might get into it after seeing my build :)

    Phase Cooling is uncommon and expensive

    Do you have any problems with freon leakage or is the system closed like a refrigerator you find in the kitchen. The compressor looks very similar.

    A yes even my Antec 900 case was suddenly struck by jealousy and rated with the same 4 with no explanation.

    Very nice looking rig. I really dig the phase change cooling. Is condensation an issue at all? I can imagine frost would start to build up at temperatures that low.

    hi Aquinus. no problems with condensation once the motherboard is insulated properly, this is done in a layed fashion with art eraser putty and armaflex insulation. the main thing is to keep the socket area air tight, without air there is no chance for condensation to develop
