But what "kit" are you talking about. You mean all of the unassembled parts, like do it yourself?

The $5200 includes all tax and shipping, I think it would be hard to beat something like that. Hell, it came in a crate, must have been a couple hundred to ship.

That's what I meant. Just the phase changer itself so you could use it on basically anything you want. Sure a 980X is pretty 1337. But some people like their options lol smile.gif

So you're gonna run this 24/7, or do you need to constantly refill the LN2 thing?

It's phase change. Not LN2

Is phase change just super cooled liquid?

Care to go more in depth? Liquid to gas cooling, hence the name "phase change"?

So it never runsz out and he can run at 5GHZ all day? Cool.

When anything evaporates, it is a naturally endothermic reaction, meaning the surface where the moisture departed is cooler.

The unit on the bottom of the computer is a self contained "deep freeze" unit. And, just like your own refrigerator and freezer at home, it does not require "maintenance." The hose you see in the picture was fed through the modified computer case chassis to the CPU.

The liquid itself is some form of very volatile refrigerant, but I don't know what it is (e.g. R111, etc.) At the point it engages the surface surrounding the CPU, it undergoes a phase change, cooling the system a great deal.

Not to be confused with a multiple-stage phase change...

This is a monstrosity smile.gif

I wonder how you can do that without getting condensation. Don't phase changers have to insulate their boards?

Yes.

Conformal coating the motherboard with 2 layers, special tape, other specialized gaskets, the evaporator clamp shell, etc., a great deal of effort put into all of the details.

Not for the do-it-yourselfers when you have an i7-980X!!
