on components (mb, cpu, gpu....)
or in compressor area ? never dealt with it that´s why asking :)
but from it´s construction it seems easier and nicer as rad/pump combination
atleast the price of

$899.99

Evaporator CPU / GPU Cooling Unit

is something to think about instead going
rad/pumps/tube/fittings you are almost same price ..... hmmmmmmmm :cool:


what about stability, refill, long-life cycle ?
You can get frost forming inside the socket, on the backplate, you can get it forming around the cpu socket and dripping onto the GPU.

Not any vibrations, just a slight hum from the compressor.

Search HWBot for almighty15 and you see a few overclocks.

4.8Ghz on a Phenomenon 2 x6 @ -28c

5.5Ghz on a 2500k @ -30c

Those were/are my 24/7 over clocks.
pardon me you just say minus temps?? JEEZ! condensation, ice and snow?! that's cool as fuck, literally! just a question I thought components etc shouldn't run at minus temps due to electronic thing (I read somewhere), they need a certain level of heat to perform at its optimum! btw nice build

It's only when you get really low down(-100~-200) that you get the components "Freezing" (Awful pun). The overclocking lingo for this is the "Cold Bug" .Although When you're booting the PC, it cannot be too cold, otherwise it will not POST.

what are your pro / cons to it ? interesting due sweet oc/temps, to bad u cannot easy attach a gpu cooler (are there any)
Pro's

Stupid overclocks
E-Peen
Chips last longer as the cold reduces electron migration

Con's
Power comsumption
Price
Noise ( Depends on the person though )

I can tell you condensation is always something to stay on the look out for, even with insulation.
Not really

on components (mb, cpu, gpu....)
or in compressor area ? never dealt with it that´s why asking :)

Waste of money

You can get frost forming inside the socket, on the backplate, you can get it forming around the cpu socket and dripping onto the GPU.
If you get that then you're doing somthing wrong

pardon me you just say minus temps?? JEEZ! condensation, ice and snow?! that's cool as fuck, literally! just a question I thought components etc shouldn't run at minus temps due to electronic thing (I read somewhere), they need a certain level of heat to perform at its optimum! btw nice build
Transisters perform much better in cold conditions

It's only when you get really low down(-100~-200) that you get the components "Freezing" (Awful pun). The overclocking lingo for this is the "Cold Bug" .Although When you're booting the PC, it cannot be too cold, otherwise it will not POST.
Cold bugs are pretty much a thing of the past, AMD chips don't cold bug and Intel are getting much much better in that regard too.

Some more phase cooling love form me :nutkick:

This is why you must insulate your motherboard, pure ice build up ( It's completely harmless due to using liquid tape )



Starting to overclock my 2500k ( almighty15 is me before anyone says anything )



Boring..



A little bit better....



Much better...

The Mini has no rust any where, full resto + wax oil all over to maximise protection.
