New "Phase"
 
I just picked up a Prometia Mach 2 GT on Ebay for $150. It works and the question is should I actually use it? I'm really worried about condensation issues so if any of you msater cooler guys can give me some advise that would be great!

non-conductive thermal grease. Where would you house it?

edit: NVM I see that it comes in a case. I was just reading and they said to use seal string instead. It looks like its pretty foolproof. I would use it if I were you. Sell your wc kit to make your monies back

Jseber had it.. he got fed up of it, he didn't like that sometimes it didn't work, and found it to be more troubling than its worth... but I think its worth it though, Condensation is a bit of an issue, but I wouldn't get too worried about it

Pretty good deal but it will significantly reduce the life of your cpu.

just wondering, do you guys mean condensation on the outside of the cooler maybe dripping onto your mobo?

ya, phase for everyday use is a hastle.. you have to wait literally an extra 5-10 minutes to boot up because the phase unit has to get set to a certain temperature before you can even boot it

great if you wanna run some benchies maybe... but i hear they're pretty loud.. and just plain annoying if your a joe schmoe
