Use the rads? :confused:

Ok, it is very easy, just drop the evaporator into an insulated res.I am sure you can figure it out :)

Oh yeah, most poeple seem to think phase change is something else.It is just a name that developed among overclockers, instead of saying refrigeration.
Phase change=liquid changing phase to a gas and vice versa(the refrigeration cycle).
A dehumidifier is a phase change system.
These are very good sites on the basics of phase change.

also my article is right now on the home page tis last months winner written by Darcy Viohl(thats me). it hink its under system cooling, wter cooling, and misc. im not exactly sure what sections ill have to look that one up later on... anyways if you just want to do it quickly and cheeply you can just take it all aprart and drop the cooling coils into the resivior on your water cooling system and its all god you can ajust it for diffrent tempratures personaly id recomend that you take out all thermostats and timers so that it just runs all the time you will get the best temps that way. if you have some time and tools and dont mind spending a little bit of money you can build a better chiller Or an on die phase cooler which will get you your best tempratures that envolves making a block for the refridgerant to boil off inside that sits ontop of your cpu like they do with vaochills and prometias. you also sould have to recharge it and such. all that information can be found in mine and other articles around here. if you need any clarification let us know we will do our best to help you.

Sinors are allowed to have urls in there sigs. The only links allowed for non sinors are Folding, SETI, Heatware, and links within overclockers.

For those that know how to handle themselves around tools and stuff....


The making of a ChipChiller

If you do not know what R134a stands for.... don't even dare to do this kinda thing... It's dangerous and not for the feeble minded.
