I have a 156 watt pelter at 14 volts that runs at 134 watts at 12 volts. I use the water block fount in this artical on it:

This combo took a P4 2.0 to 3.0 at 150 FSB on an Abit TH7II. I have sence sold the processor but I about to get another P4 for the same mobo.

I also have two new phase change compressors that I am thinking about building a phase change cooler with. Well, one of them and I have no idea what I am going to do with the other one but anyway here is the question.


Since the peltier ran the CPU (a CbO stepping) at a idle temp of -12 C and a load temp at 0 C would I benefit from using phase change cooling? There are alot of people spending a ton of cash on phase change coolers. I alreadt have the R134a and the oil for it, I just need to make a block and put it all together.


What do you guys think?

:D :D A proper phase-changer will lower your power bill. :D :D

If you just want to experiment, go for it, but don't expect any
faster speeds.

A good phase-changer could cool two or three rigs. :cool:

This happens when the OC server hangs and you get impatient and click twice. :D

I think that with a properly made evaporator you'll get substancially lower temps with the same processor mentioned. You have now a new(er) processor with for us an unknown type, speed, volts and heatoutput so we can't say for sure. We also don't know anythting about the 'pressor, it's capabilities.
So, it's hard call.
Unless you have a puny 'pressor and If you follow bowmans thread about building a phase changer, I'm sure you'll get lower temps. :)
