Your diagram shows what's supposed to happen, but it seems to me the entire process might stall if the is just to much gaseous coolant.

That's why I think doing the right calculations and using the right sized condenser is a must. The optional pump was my idea to help out if the reaction was vigorous enough.

That's what I was worried about. Of course the decrease in boiling temperature would be good, but that would cause the reaction to happen more quickly. However, that would cause more heat to be pulled away from the chip which in turn would allow time for more liquid coolant to come in contact with the chip before changing state. Like you say, I dont think the pressure differential would cause enough of a change in reaction temperature to make much of a difference. I think that is really the exact same idea as the overkill solution, but on a smaller scale.
