    Ok. Change of direction here....
    I was just looking at VapoChill cases...It'd come to the same price as an Antec Sonata & Koolance EXOS !!!
    Why would I get a water cooled system when I could have a vapor phase cooled system ??? Anyone have any thoughts on this ? What would be the down sides to having a VapoChill system ?
    What kind of maintance is involved with vapor phase cooling ?

    Should this thread be moved to the Cooling section ?

    The biggest problem with the phase change coolers like the VapoChill is that they make ur proc TOO COLD :eek: Just like its not good for a proc to run too hot, it can also cause long term problems if it runs too cold. While you'd be able to get one hell of an OC out of a vapochill proc :D it would also die much faster than a normal air or watercooled processor. Also u need to be really careful to avoid condensation collecting around ur proc when its at like -20 C.

    I would rather use the Prometeia than the VapoChill.

    But I can get the VapoChill cases here (actually, it's about a 10 minute drive from my place to the store.)

    Well, unless you plan on OCing the holy fricken hell out of your processor, then it'll prolly run to cool. For folks who wanna go big-time with OCing, it's a good unit. IMHO. :)

    Well if I had one....I would OC it to the moon...:p
    My point is that it would cost me about the same as a HO setup.

    Yeah, but what are the risks involved with both of them? I suppose with Vapochill, condensation would be a big one. With H2O a leak would be my fear.

    I would be more worried about condensation than a leak (if I ever get a lot of money, imma build a computer inside of a minifridge :P)

    Yes, I second that. H2O has come a long way since the says of 5 gallon bucket resevoirs and reef tank "wet/dry filter" Rio sump pumps. ;)
