There hasn't been much information out about this OCZ Cyro-Z phase changer. Anyone have some details?
Although the OCZ Cryo-Z uses a compressor that has a label that says R134a that is not the case. OCZ didn't want to comment on exactly what coolant is used but did mention that they picked the best price versus performance coolant for what they wanted. We spoke with Tony (Big Toe) from OCZ who has had one for a lenghty period of time and he was seeing -22C at idle on an AMD FX-57 overclocked to 3.3GHz and around -10C under load. If these numbers are correct the Cryo-Z is inline with other more expensive phase change coolers on the market.

That takes some pretty advance knowledge of computers to do properly and the average overclocker isn't willing to break it. I know I'm not. If they could make that process a bit easier, Sales would be a lot higher
