It is actually pretty well thought out--it uses a refrigerant and a small "head" or expansion chamber that is actually a part of the heatsink and not just screwed to a heatsink with some Thermal Paste. It is more effecient because of that direct connection and the radiator looking thing is quite light (and probably fairly fragile)--One thing to note is that the angle of that heat exchanger unit is critical to the operation of the unit--the sealed refrigerant basically boils when in contact with the HS, the vapor expands up into the Heat Exchanger , condenses and runs down into the "head" where it boils and so forth ad infinitum--a zero power no pump phase change system--very clever.

I saw it before.... hmph, maybe I'll get that before I go w/c. That's pretty nice. But it's HUGE! I don't think I have enough room for that... lol.

I've seen these before. Supposedly the plastic fan mounting is flimsy and from what I remember, a Thermalright XP-120 cools better.

Hi Bryman31,

No, didn't see it, yes it looks sweet, and yes I'd like to try it!! If the XP-90 that I just purchased doesn't get me the results I want, I'll be looking into it. I have to agree with CyberDruid though, the angle for the heat exchanger will be critical. As for the weight, it's only 355g with fan. Not bad at all...

Thanks for the post, :)

Hi again Bryman31,

If your interested here's a link to a review:http://www.gognet.com/vapochillmicro1.htm

The same web site has some other reviews as well.

Looks like most still agree that the XP-90 is still one of the best.
Hopefully it is!!! I'll know tomorrow...
Take care, :)

You also have to take into account orientation of the heatsink relative to gravity. In a heatpipe situation such as that, the heatsink needs to be as close to vertical as possible because the evaporated liquid will rise up to the top where it is cooled.

hmmm the specs say mount it aiming up towards the top for best cooling, thats cool for those of us who have blowholes up top
