You know, there is something else to consider. Air is easy, water is tricky, phase is delicate. Hooking up phase and using it is not simple, it is not easy, and the risk for catastophic failure is that much higher. You fail to insult just one section properly and you get pin rot, or a short, and your pretty $1200 computer just got fried from a $300 phase unit.

And if you took that 300 CAD and built a custom water system instead of buying a kit, you would get much better than 40c load temps. And at that point, personally, I would have to consider the small difference in temps to the higher risk.......

I'll take my custom water cooling (StingerV6, MCP655, and a bonnie HC, less than $300) and not worry about condensation and higher energy costs (1/6HP or not, that thing will draw more juice than the MCP655)


It's cool that they are doing it I guess, if it works, but I think this phase unit will be to phase what the Big Water is to H2O cooling.......a cheap entry into phase, but not much better than careful, custom water......

Just my thoughts

Thanks. I'm now leaning towards the swiftech ultra kit. Buying the same parts would cost me apporximatly the same, so I'm going for the kit.

Now Phase change cooling for the CPU is pretty cool, but a system with extra arms that could cool the chipsets, video cards and maybe hard-drives would be way cool.
Also imagine a small compartment door in your computer that will hold three beers (cooled of course!).
I give congrats to OCZ (even though they haven't yet pulled this off) for their
efforts to expand in the performance area of computers. No other company has gone as far. Their prototype isn't yet refined, BUT, it is only (or supposed to be) half the price of the other 2 manufacturesrs.
I'll hang back and watch from the sidelines until some other larger company tries to gooble up OCZ. Time to buy some stock here fellas.

You're a kid at heart. Sdumper.

I'm with Thumper on this matter, it won't be much better than a good water setup, and it will be much more dangerous.

Oh i have no doubt it will be better than water. Much better even if it sucks. But it cant compete with the big dogs of phase change. Mach II's and vapochills can go years between maintenece i dont think OCZ's will
