Does anybody on here have asetek version 2.0.19 software for the vapochill XE II or a link to it as I've lost my copy of it and the asetek site with the download has closed down.
Also I thing my unit needs regassing I've found a local firm who can do it but they need to know how much the system needs I can't find any information on this in the user manuals or online any help would be much apreciated as I'd hate this great machine becoming another boat anchor

Where are you located? There's probably someone nearby who does phase builds that can regas it for you.

I believe that they tune for 8K superheat. Rig up a dummy load and have your local guy do it that way.

Let me know if you find some software. I bought a Light Speed a week ago, so I don't have any software. Good luck on finding software, if I find anything, I'll post back. Cheers!

Hi guys. New to forum. Anyone able to get the vapochill lightspeed software? Or is there an alternative controller available that can replace the chill control? Many thanks

The Xeii looks like the same board (though I don't have my board with me), so I'm surprised it doesn't work. They probably updated the micro control chip or something, but since you have the software, could you post it somewhere?

Post whatever you got, .exe, .bin, anything like that. The more software I have, the more likely I can hire my cousin to modify the code to make it work.

I may just hire him to make a generic controller for any phase system with a lot more advanced features based on the Raspberri pi, or I could keep it really really simple and cheap and do it myself with an arduino, but it wouldn't have a nice GUI and nice graphed out temperature charts like I can with a pi.

You can post them into my Google drive if you want. I'll keep the files shared indefinitely so anyone can click on this link. If the link breaks for whatever reason, post on the forum, and even if its a couple years from now, I'll probably still have it and re-post it.

HI there,

Many thanks for responding to thread. At times you wonder if you will ever get a response with the threads so old haha

have attached the asetek chillcontrol software for the xe2 in my previous post. hopefully you can work some magic and get it to work with the lightspeed.

I have put up a couple of posts in other forums so will post back once i hear anything. hopefully someone out there may still have the software.

I did get in touch with asetek and their response was that they don't have it anymore

Thanks! I'll have to see if it detects my vapochill when I have my board. If not, I might make a basic controller for the system (you can change startup temps with just the power button, but heater control is not an option, I had to direct wire mine to molex. Not a huge deal, but it would be nice to have those controllable).

If I design a new controller (won't be any time soon), would you be interested in it? I know I can make one with thermocouples and have it auto regulate heaters with an Aruduino to keep it X amount above ambient, but I'm hoping to get one more complex (haven't built anything yet besides a nichrome heater for my GPU block I designed, which worked great, except GPUs tend to crack the solder joint if you turn the system on and off a lot).

Your help has been much appreciated! May the temps be low, and the benchmarks high!

Hi, yea would be interested. My lightspeed is still too good to throw away . So would be good to get an alternative controller for it.

Where you based? I am in the UK

Many thanks

I'm in the US.

I really like the Vapochill, seems to do a pretty good job, definitely don't trash one!. I haven't made an AM4 mount for it (was going to crank one out, but then I seem to have gotten the worst Ryzen 1700 ever, and would take an estimated 1.70v to hit 4.0 Ghz stable... The max I can do with an AIO is 3.9 Ghz, and I'm not even sure how people are getting 1.45v on them without melting either. So I never made the mount or used the vapo on it). I don't think it would handle Threadripper though, probably way too power hungry, and that's likely to be my next upgrade, but making socket mounts is easy enough I might try it someday. Mounts are probably the next biggest thing these need (saw some old ones were like $160... each... Yikes!). I might try to come up with a universal mount that fits almost anything, so far all my mounts are custom per socket (My AIO also has custom mounts, but I had to redesign that for AM4, universal would be nice).

I agree, these things need an alternative controller, that's why I hate closed source, and then its worse when they stop providing the files (like 7 MB, how costly is that to host with extremely rare downloads?). So I think the alternative controller would be based on open source hardware and easily available (for replacements if anything ever breaks, or you just need another one). That would be preferable anyways.

4ghz stable isn't bad at all. Would be interesting to see what u get with the vapo. I acquired my vapochill already modded to support a higher heat load but i am still to put it to the test .i kinda stuck with the vapo as I don't know of anyone nowadays in the UK who does custom builds. I got a custom mount on mine as well and it does the job. Totally agree that these things do need universal mounts.

Yea I also agree with regards to the hosting of the file. Still doesn't make sense why asetek took the support site offline.

Keep us posted on your progress
