Another deal has come up for a Vapochill XE. I was reading some reviews and it said that they were only capable of -20ºC. at idle with a pressy. Is it worth $350.00?<br><br>
I also read that the compressor is of low quality and is expected to fail after a few years. Anyone else have any info?<br><br>
Thanks.

Anyway, should I go for the XE? -20ºC doesn't seem too bad for $350.00 CAD.<br><br>
Comon Waxy, help me out =)

It's not worth it, save up for a Mach II. OR have the XE modded, but that would basically double the cost (~$400 CAD for new compressor/condenser and recharge) and being in Canada it would cost a lot more to ship it to whomever is going to repair/mod it. Wait and buy a good base unit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>
EDIT: Found a review: <a href="http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NTg2LDQsLGhlbnRodXNpYXN0" target="_blank">Link.</a> Keep in mind those temps are in F. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">

Thank's RyGuy. That reminds me, I have an ebay link for a Vapochill XE with the case, and a PC power supply starting at $300.00 USD. PM me if you want the link.

Well, that is actually a good deal on ebay, with the PC P&C 510W Turbo-Cool. It will most likely go up, but right now it is a good deal. That PSU alone is worth ~$175 used. Shipping is steep though, $100 international. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

XE's are not worth it.. Only the LS. The XE is only good to 180w and in an ugly case with a horrid mounting system. Save the money and get something better....

If you'd ever upgrade I would say go for a new mobo and GFX instead. Using money on THAT much high-end cooling is just a waste without anything good to use it with (Mobo, not CPU).
