Vapochill XE-II - What to do with it..?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have had a Vapochill XE-II for some years now, had problems getting it to work properly as i got so much condense around my cpu that i didn't want to risk my hardware. Tried it on my old Intel Q6600 but was not able to try it much out because of the water on my MB:rolleyes:

Yeah, i know... - User error.. But i haven't even started the watercooling adventure yet - better to just run to the extreme cooling right away, right? biggrin.gif

Now i have a 1156 socket i7 870 cpu and soon a 1156 socket cpu as im about to change some of my hardware.

Just bought me some hardware:
- Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB 2400mhz
- Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H MB

The CPU is not bought as im not sure what to buy atm - 2600k or 3770k, ooor the 3570k. Time will tell:)

The case im using is the Corsair Obsidian 650D with a low budget wc at the moment, it works and keeps the cpu at ok temps.

So what do i do with the Vapo xe2? Is it usable today on the new cpu's or should i rip out the heart of the case and use it as a chiller setup? Im not so up to date on this whole chiller thingie but if i cant cool the cpu enough with the vapo - maybe i can chill it sufficent enough for a decent watercooled setup?

And of course im going to overclock - thats kinda obvious:D

Please give me some comments on what to do, its a shame to let that case just stand there un-used as it was pretty cool back in the day:happysmil

IF i was to use it in a kind of chiller setup, what would i need to do it? And what temps _could_ i be hitting with a setup like that?
Im handy by nature so if i get into the right direction i think i can manage to build it.

According to Asetek it can hold up to 180W load at -15ÂșC evaporator temperature. That's plenty for a 1155 CPU smile.gif

Nice:D

But if i remember correctly there were those who changed the gas in the vapochill to get greater temps?
