Agreed. Polyurethene liquid will work a treat, but be carefull of heat sensitive devices. It will not allow for heat removal from them if covered.

Basic stuff, but sometimes overlooked.

Ok,... thx,.. good idea. But you've done gfx phase change, right? So did you have similar problems? When I first got my vapo that's actually what I was most worried about too,... that the cold would spread through the pcb ( ) and cause condensation to form on the motherboard outside of the clamshell. But it didn't... so why would it on gfx card?

Could someone define "direct die" for me please? It's confusing me,... and I only find sites that state that people wanna do it, not what it is. I think I read it before somewhere, but forgot,..

Does it mean removing the metal casing of the cpu, and putting the evap head directly on the core die?

Yes xie67 is correct yoiu don't want to coat your core with the stuff.

Yes I put a Vapochill XE and Prometeia Mach II GT on various videocards so I have first hand experience. I'll be honest, I did kill a few videocards although I'm not sure if it was condensation or the voltage mods. Other areas of the videocard will cool down as well but if you insulate things well, it shouldn't be an issue.

lolicious as for direct die, I always thought that refers to the coolant/refrigerant coming in direct contact wiht the core, at least that's what it means with watercooling. In phase change, that's a bit fuzzy, haha if you find a clear answer, please pass it along.

Hehe... ok: I've been "whoring" around on a few other forums, where I picked up direct die in first place, and a lot of confusion too So "direct die" is what I would call "phase change" (period!), ie. vapo, prommy.
Then there's waterchillers (pase-change-cooled-water-cooling lol), and the new entry (for me anyway): a chill box! - blowing cold air with an ac into your case!? Sounds a bit weird to me, but reading might help that.
Anyway,...
Now I'm basically left with just one problem: The "tube" with the evap head that leads from the compressor to the card. Coz the compressor on offer doesn't seem to have that. What's it called (so I can google)? Or would the ac technician have that?
