Default Thermaltake devloping affordable phase change unit

Thermaltake Working On Affordable Compact Phase-change Cooling | Tom's Hardware

It's suppose to be priced between $200-$300. So what a good watercooling set up would run. They say they're not looking to make it do -10c temps, but to make it so you can run all of intels new procs, the Q6600 and 45nm procs from 4ghz and up. It'll give you temps of under 0C. I'd be down if it's going to work as they make it sound like.

eh, seems pointless

only around ~0 C is bad since it will be such a hassle for not so impressive temperatures...

insulation and all that stuff just for ~0!?

0*C = -50*C for all intents and purposes.

I pretty sure ANYTHING below 70C load is good. What difference is there between the cpu running at 0 and -50?

why do you think ln2 gets the highest achieved OCs....??? because it has such a low temp.

its goes-

ln2>phase>dice>chilled water>water>air

because when you overclock.. temperatures increase

thus, if you can only get ~0 C on load for a stock CPU... when you overclock, it'll raise much more over 0C and thus will lose its effectiveness

edit:

whats dice?

also, chilled water is pretty close to phase, since it basically is phase... (unless you mean tec's)

edit:

oh lol dry ice

edit:

so don't forget TEC's unless that falls under chilled as well

and what about passive?

passive is right at the bottom lol, and phase is much more diferent then chilled water a phase change kit has more then regular water or else it would freeze.
