    Well the cons would be...

    Cost the same amount and draws as much power, yet higher temps
    IMO it is more messy

    can you tell a phase, to not cool below 8 degrees?:)
    i dont want minus, thats too dangerous in my opinion.
    but about 8-15 degrees load, would be nice enough for my means.
    how many watt, does such a device draws from the socket?
    Why is it messy? water is always messy, as far as i knew ;-)

    Yes it would be possible, you'd just use a small compressor and tune it for very high heat loads.

    I'm not sure how much power it would draw, if your talking about the TEC and WC methods, just find out the main parts such as TEC, Fans pump etc, and look at their power draw.

    about 200-300 watt should it be, if im not wrong:)

    you is such a phase constructed? i dont know anything about phase building,i must admit.
    may you can explain a bit?:eek:

    The power draw depends how many watts the TEC/s you are using are.

    What would you like explained?

    what can a + degree phase achieve, compared to oversized watercooling? :)

    Better load holding, very small difference in idle vs load temps. Plus when you overclock it higher the temps won't rise as much.
    Velvet Wafer says thanks.

    how many MHZ can that bring, very roughly? an estimation would be enough!

    Depends what CPU and how well your CPU clocks. I guess a i7 @ 4.6GHz HT+ shouldn't be too hard.

    well... a phenom 955, mediocre overclocking, and good in undervolting (tends to get too hot either)

    Good choice :toast: I ordered the same test bench, only in white.

    I should have my new bench by the middle of next week, just need some new tubing and a few more water cooling parts.

    did you get the bench yet oily?

    im working on a few designs of a custom testbench with room for a couple rads, and other things

    currently trying to get a little skill in sketchup, not that its easy lol,

    made this one in paint the other day, just a rough sketch of one of the ideas i have atm

    Still waiting on it ... :(

    We are having some bad weather at the minute, and it has hit courier services bad.

    I just sent an email off this morning, to see if it had been collected from the supplier yet.

    I was hoping for an early Xmas present for myself :laugh: Sketckup is brilliant if you have the skill, which unfortunately I dont.
    Keep us posted with the design ideas.

    Don't have alot of time to assemble it now, it will give me something to do on Christmas day after the turkey :laugh:

    Will try and upload more pics when it finished.I will have to get some new hardware to install on it, as the rig I was going to use is now in a different case :eek:

    Nice tech johnnyfive:toast:

    Here was mine a week ago:
    [​IMG]

    I was unhappy with the MSI Big Bang (had problems oc to at least 4.2GHz) and put my Asus Sabertooth X58 board back in the mix. Much better overclocking:)
    And I moved the 140mm fans to the back of the MONSTA rad and placed the red fan in the middle (still upset at Performance-PC for not sending 3 blue ones like I ordered).

    the tecchies are looking awesome guys :respect:

    @hammer, i thought it was a good board :s
    you talked to them? maybe they will send you a blue one instead?

    tech looks awesome noe matter what :rockout:

    gonna make a list over the ones with stations later!
