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