Hey people! I've been offered a Mach 2 Gt for $400.00.<br />
<br />
It's used, what should I do/buy to prevent condensation? What do I do for maintenance?<br />
<br />
I figured, if I'm spending $320.00 on water cooling, I might as well go phase..

Holy cow that's a good deal! I am in the process of making an extensive Phase FAQ but in the mean time, does it come with a mounting kit?

Ahhh here we go again <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> More phase people lol I can answer anything you want. The MachII GT has kits available @ <a href="http://www.crazypc.com" target="_blank">www.crazypc.com</a>. They along with the sealstring provided and dielectric grease is all the stuff youll need

Have you had any problems with your phase? Condensation wise? <br />
<br />
Where would I go to get it repaired if there is a problem?

I also have an LGA775 kit I don't need. <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> I don't have any sealstring to spare though, so you would need to get that, as well as dielectric grease like Waxy said, but I just got mine at Autozone for $1.19 per packet, and one packet of grease (spark plug boot protector) should be enough for a CPU socket.

You'll be looking at an extra $100-200 for the mounting kit, die grease, and whatever else you will want to go with it.

Maybe some airconditioning specialist could do it?

<a href="http://www.xtremesystems.org" target="_blank">www.xtremesystems.org</a> for repairs. Jinu117 and Runmc are in america for repairs. Local A/c shops cant work on these they dont have the knowledge to. Kits are $100 and grease is cheap. ive had no problem with condensation when i had my mach II

What does seal string do? Dielectric grease?

Sealstring seals the area around the socket and dielectric grease seals the actual socket to prevent pin rot.

Sealstring is a stickey black bead that seals the kit to the mobo and the head of the unit to the kit, it makes sure no air can get in or out. No air no condensation. Dielectric grease is a non conductive grease the goes in the socket to prevent "pin rot" in case condensation actually form. It can also be spread around on things to prevent wate damage

</div>There will be once I submit my Guide <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> but it is really easy and a PDF of the actual instruction manual is available here: <a href="http://www.crazypc.com/support/nventiv/MACHII.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.crazypc.com/support/nventiv/MACHII.pdf</a>

Thanks guys. I found out that it's the standard Mach 2. Is the compressor smaller? Does it make that much of a difference?<br />
<br />
$400 CAD **

The only diference between the two is the gas used. Mach II's use R134a and GT's use R404a. The same Danfoss NF9X is used, which by the way is a bada$$ compressor my vapochill is being modded with one as we speak. Its still a great deal

The only difference is the coolant in the GT is R404a instead of the standard R134a in the MII. <br />
<br />
EDIT: Hmm, sounds familiar. <img src="/images/smilies/lachen.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Lachen" class="inlineimg" /> Isn't it technically the NF9<u>F</u>X compressor though?
