building a phase change unit, even upwards of a triple stage unit probably wouldn't be all that expensive. I wouldn't be surprised if you could do it in the $300 range but of course a good deal of expertise is needed. I looked into how to build a phase change unit before and it's just way over my head.

My friend was telling me about the OCZ coming out some time ago but this is the first info I've seen on it. Wouldn't mind picking myself up one if it's $299

I've given some thought to building my own as I know someone that has over 20 years experience in refigeration. I also have access to a metal fab shop. My only real problem is free time. I work mostly out of town right now so I'm gone a lot.

While I'm waiting for the new socket AMD board and CPU I may just look into building a phase change unit. It might be fun!
