Maybe something like a tube that exits to the top of the case, the tube heats up since it's part of the HSF but the top is open so you can pour something like alcohol into it. As time goes on the alcohol evaporates, phase change cooling.

Yes, But the point of this would be to create a highly efficient ( much more than air or passive, possibly on par or better than Water cooling) but without the complexities of having to refill it every few hours or whatever. This should be something that needs refilling say once every 2 weeks or something :O xD

The enthusiasts have their market segments with Liquid nitrogen dry ice and water cooling, which all need pretty constant monitoring. we need something that offers high performance but without as much trouble.

@ OP: I think the vapor chambers work better.

Posting this link for those interested in the info.

I know not all materials are listed but will give you a decent idea on the subject.
