its probably a cheapo one if it is bundled with a case, phase changers can be very good and create a happy medium between watercooling and liquid gas.

They would still be maximising on profit and minimalising on costs and with the awh factor of it being hase cooled so they can get away with it being rubbish. IMO a decent phase cooler costs 600-800 and would reach temps around -60-70C on a stock cpu.

Any Thermaltake product more advanced than a heatsink is just asking for trouble.

I wouldn't like the idea of my hard drive hitting them temps as they usualy have fluid to lubricate the bearings and that can gel up causing damage...
