Simple question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
G'day

Say my Vapochill is rated at to remove 180W of heat. I've been told that is not enough to overclock a quad.

What I want to know is, if it can cool to -45c or whatever and water can only do ambient at best, why is phase limited? Is it like leaving your fridge open all day, like a strain of the compressor?

Thanks

OC Quads are like 200-250w.

Yes, basically the issue is how much energy the evaporator head can remove. They are designed to work in a certain parameter. You can replace the head and change the performance othe unit. You can get it to handle more heat but your temps will be higher.
