Depends what you want. Watercooling will keep you around 30* C for about $200 for a custom setup, Phase change will give you about -10* C temps for $700+.

not even a question...phase change beats watercooling by lightyears...with watercooling temps are generally 10-30 depending on overclock and system, phase is almost always (-)
i have watercooling i built myself running well right now @ 30 C
i am actually starting to build a phase change system, can see the thread on this site in phase change

Well there is no question about it, phase change kills watercooling. the only thing about a phase change is that you need 2 systems to cool both your cpu and your video card. if you want a mix of both you could build yourself a waterchiller setup, which is pretty much just an air conditioner with the evaporator put into a jug of water, or, most likely a liquid that does not freeze, and pumped into your cpu and/or videocard just as a watercooler would do. in my mind this is the best idea because it gets the temperature of your cpu down past 0*C sometimes and is not as expensive as a phase change or even some watercoolers. hope this helped you out a bit.

This forum is for asking questions, giving answers, and being a happy community in general. I'll kindly ask you not to answer anyone's queries in that fashion, no matter what you think of it.

For phase change, it's more like -30c to -50c temps.

Yes, phase change would be considered extreme cooling.

Idle, maybe... alot of people I've seen with phase change with load temps of -10...
