I've seen a number of people reference something called a phase like "I need a cooler until I get my phase back." or something. But all I've gathered is that they are expensive and are some sort of cooler... I think.

Yep, they are one of the best types of cooler available to the general public. They send your cpu into negative temperatures which helps overclocking.

The evaporator head is special made for the system to utilize such a small surface area efficiently. Yes you will get sub zero temps with the right system and with it running optimally. Condensation occurs when ambient air comes into contact with an object below ambient temperature. The water vapor in the air condenses out of the air and onto the surface. Water and energized circuits is bad juju. I would suggest taking a gander at extreme systems as they have many guides on every aspect of phase change as well as pics that explain the basic refrigeration cycle. I believe the forum you are looking for there is extreme cooling.</div>
