I do agree ..it seem overprice but the unit by itself is about $340 add w/ his mod $380. well I'm sure I have to think very very careful before to sign the check to him.

It's not worth more than 100 bucks. The chiller is easily out preformed by a 100 dollar A/C unit. The claim of cooling down to 0c is a bundle of crap unless it's a underclocked P1 were cooling here. The only good thing about it is the Digital temp monitor, but that doesnt justify the cost.

Probably the staitest answer your going ot get is find one you can afford and you think will be suitable then call the dealer or manufacture. I bet they are pretty strong to chill a few gallons like they are intended for but how strong is the problem. I remember I looked into these a while back but the price of one really turned me off. I wish danger den or someone would make a actual small AC unit solution for dual or triple 120mm rads so OCing and Cooling freaks like us don't have to hunt for window ac units and ghetto rig our pc's.

Run a phase through a case filled w/ mineral oil. It should 'put the freeze' on the whole mobo and everything. I have seen the mineral oil filled case before, but not w/ the phase.

*I swear, if I ever get a phase I will be the first to try it.

Build a case that rotates the mobo, so that the cabling face's up. Hook up a Phase unit to the CPU. Insert your whole mobo, fully loaded w/ RAM, vid card into the mineral oil 'tank'. The oil will act as a freezing medium, and spread the 'cold' to the rest of components in the oil, thus...sub-cooling your entire rig. You would not have to insulate any part of the mobo or CPU as the mineral oil is non-conductive and since it will be immersed fully, there are no worries of condensation build up.

Plus the fans look cool as h3ll spinning little vortex's in the oil.

No ...never seen one sold, only a pic or two of a creative someone. They used the mineral oil submerssion, but not the Phase. That was my 'improving' on their design. I will try to find the pics...

I'd pass on that idea, it works, but leaks. Not to mention gets everything sticky and oily.
