Actually the LS is suppose to maintain an evap temperature of -26C with 200W heat load, the actual CPU temperature will be 15 to 20 degrees higher.

CPU temps still sound a bit on the high side but then again perhaps the thermal probe within the processor is screwy.

do u have 2 use thermal paste?
yes. The best thermal paste for Phase Change is Arctic Silver Ceramique. It performs better in sub-zero temperatures than Arctic Silver 5 does.

what's ur temps?
Right now, my computer is overclocked from 2.2Ghz to 3.1Ghz. The idle temperature is still -13C. I haven't tested it under load, but I'm sure it's still in the negatives.

how much did it hurt ur wallet?
A lot, the the great thing is that it lasts for a long time. I got a special deal on it though... saved 60 bucks. Cost me about 850 bucks total. I'll tell you more about it later. I'm on the phone with my grandparents.

Yes, you should get one if you can afford it.

Is that the maximum frequency your board can go to or do u not want to OC it anymore, and why?

Here, and here. Evap temp of -33C at 200watt load.

Hmm, that contradicts what Asetek says on its Tech Specs LS page. Oh well it's splitting hairs.

Huh, that is strange. Two different graphs for the same product. That's weird.

How long did it take to set the vapochill up, and is it very complicated
post #17 of 19
I had a Vapochill XE (which was used as a videocard cooler) with the same mounting head as the LS, it's quite messy since you have to fill the CPU socket with dielectric grease but you can have it setup in under an hour.

It takes about the same amount of time with the Prometeia line of coolers but there's less mess (and no dielectric grease!) Of course with the ECT method, it's very important that you seal the CPU cell properly otherwise condensation a high possibility, still I prefer this method.

What's the upkeep on a phase change system. Like, what do you have to do to maintain it?

Well once it's installed, all you have to do is clean the radiator. When changing the head on Vapochill systems you might need to get yourself some dielectric grease and neoprene, with the Prometeia's all that's required is seal string.
