How do you handle condensation on the outside of cases in phase change coolers?

What condensation on the outside of the case?

Don't you need to insulate the case to prevent condensation under extreme cooling? For the same reason water condenses on your window (long explanation about dupoint) you should have condensation on the outside of your case.

Just make sure to still have good airflow.

I don't think you understand the concept fully, the only cold spot is the CPU or GPU or whatever the evaporator is on. Insulation around those parts solves condensation plus a little airflow.

if your cold enough, shouldn't the air in the case cause condensation on the case?
The way it works, you're going to end up with the crossing of dupint somewhere...

The condenser head is on your hot CPU absorbing the heat. Any cold elsewhere is unintentional and insulation is used to keep the sub-ambient cooling to leak into the case.
