I've heard first hand about flammable aerosol. Idiot who worked at the tech shop before me did it while the computer was running (granted it was an ol' p4 which was probably running quite quite hot) and needless to say, the computer didn't work after that.

Oh, it's definitely flammable. One time I shook one up and turned it upside down and sprayed it on my friend's pant leg, and then he lit it on fire. Extremely flammable, lol.

I've had mine down to like 12-15C once when I left the my window open in the winter for a whole day. It was pretty chilly in my room.
Or just install speedfan on a unsupported motherboard/cpu

My friend did that once. Except after he lit himself on fire he yelled really loud, leaped through the air and landed on my other friend who was sleeping. It was hilarious

Tip it upside down, shake it, then spray it on like a table or something. Then light the icey stuff that comes out.

I'm using CleanSafe Dust Remover.

Phase cooling is old news been around for 4+ years, you can buy premade kits and install it in the computer yourself if you wish. Its 3C outside I would guess but the heating is on and its warm in my room guessing around 16-18C

it just sounds funny putting in a refrigeration unit in computer case, it also failed having warmer temps at load than water cooling:laughing:.
