Default Phase Change


I have been looking for cooling methods and phase cooling struck my mind. It still is kind of confusing to me so I am hoping some of you gentlemen could help me out.

What exactly is phase cooling and what does it use?
Is Vapochill a good phase cooling unit?
Is it good to use on a server?
Can it heat more than 1 processor?

Should I buy a Vapochill case or the single vapochill unit?

I'm willing to learn and educate myself on this topic with your help. Thank you.

Phase change is a little extreme for a server, especially if you won't be overclocking. I think you will find people with more knowledge on the different types of cooling here:

so, umm, err yeah

phase change is an extreme method of cooling

the vapochill LS is a good unit but i would recomend doing a homemade. a vapochill wLS will get u about -10 but a hommade u should get -50

if u do get a LS then go to XS and get Chilli1 to mod it.

a phase change unit is best for a single cpu and if u want it to cool multiple things u will encounted problems cos of pressure and compression

Also be aware, that many CPUs have a "cold bug", which prevents them from overclocking/and or operating properly at very low temps.
