First time phase changer needs a bit of advice and questions answered

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Im looking really seriously into that new OCZ phase change unit, especialy because I have about $350-400 cash in my hand right now and my CPU loads about 64c (73c before I dropped down the voltage to 1.400 instead of 1.45, also had to knock the overclock down to 4.13 from 4.21 ) so I have both the means and the motivation to get one of these. I have a few questions that need answering and I know there are tons of phase gurus on this site

1: What are ALL of the components that I need to phase cool my CPU, I mean as far as dielectric grease etc. and could someone quickly tell me what I do with these....

2: I know there are little to no specs that have been released for the OCZ Cryo-Z so far but by a rough estimate what kind of temps can I expect from my CPU and what kind of overclocks could I expect to get assuming my mobo is passively cooled but according to anandtech their P5WD2-E Premium could "reach 400MHz FSB with the stock Asus cooling".....

Thats all the questions I have right now, Im having a stroke of ADD and can't think straight will post more as I think of them....

EDIT/// Assuming that my stock CPU multiplier is 15x, and IF my mobo truly can do 400MHz FSB that gives me a 6GHz CPU clock, does this seem at all likely? Also, my RAM is DDR2 667 so if I can do 5GHz with 333x15 and keep my memory at stock timings and voltages and run it 1:1 thats all I'd need to be happy, does THIS seem likely? lol.

This is a little off topic, But where did you find the OCZ phase unit?

Are you joking? lol literally everyone is talking about this...did you mean you hadn't heard about it yet or where did I find one, because I don't have it yet I was saying that when it does come out and if it is around $300 like people are saying then I am going to buy one and need advice etc.

6 ghz seems a little high, but I would not be supprised if you hit 5.5ghz. To mount you are going to need as ceramique and dielectric grease. Everything else should be in the kit. Some choose to spray their motherboards and vid cards with conformal coating to further protect from condensate. To me this sounds like a really good idea. Do not use vaseline as dielectric grease or to otherwise condensate proof your system as it runs off of where you put it when it gets warm.

Nice, 5.5GHz sounds nice but like I said if I hit 5GHz and am able to run it totally stable there I'll be more than happy (for a little while atleast )

Okay, so now that that question has more or less been answered how about my other one, what kinds of temps can I expect? My PD 930 Presler is rated at 95W TDP but I'm positive that its MUCH higher once I crank up the voltage for a nice overclock. I've heard that this OCZ unit is, on average, producing -25~-10c load temps and OCZ Tony had his FX55 at 3.3GHz with a -11c full load temp, this sounds awesome to me but to be totally honest, even +25c load temps are more than enough to satisfy me

EDIT/// Also, does anyone know if the fan(s) on this unit are going to be adjustable? I'd be willing to trade off a bit of performance for quietness....heck if it only has 1 120MM fan I might take the fan off of my Big Typhoon and swap it with the fan thats on there to make it quiet lol.

OCZ hasn't shown really anything yet. It's hard to say if/when this thing will actually come out.

I would say between -10 and -5 degrees depending on your oc. I t is really had to say though. You are going to be the guina pig for this lol.

As far as a fan swap goes you are going to have to replace it with an AC fan not a DC one. You could find a 1 amp variac from someplace and rig it up to the fan for variable speeds.

What are you guys even talking about? lol OCZ showed it at CeBiT and had it running on an Athlon system inside of a CM Stacker 830 case and there are tons of pictures of it as well.

*by the way I hope I didnt come off as mean or offensive, I said the above in a joking manner so I hope I didnt offend you lol....lemme find the links.
