    Ohh MY GOD. The suspense is killing me. I've been waiting 4 months to finally hear a review about OCZs new phase change kit.

    It'll be off with the swiftech CPU water block, and on with one of those deamons!

    looks awefuly a lot like Asetek VapoChill LS and/or Mach I/II (GT).. wonder if OCZ is making them, or having them custom build by a 3rd party.

    I mean, it's a fairly universal design, so it's not surprising that it might look similar. There are lots of third parties that have coolers very similar to it. For instance, Drewmeister1 at extreme OC forums makes a awsome cooler, just like the vapochills and prommys. I believe he sells it a pretty good price, however, I have never seen a good phase change system for a reasonable price.

    I hope OCZ don't come out with another $800+ kit.

    I've tried watercooling. I've tried peltiers. But I've always wanted to get into phase change. The money has always been the biggest drawback.

    Be you the Madshrimp himself? Hi there!

    Indeed, an interesting question.

    You know its using a compressor out of a cars AC system? Whereas things like the prometia use the R404a - found in slightly bigger applications

    R404a is the gas, not the model.

    /\ correct and i think i can see a r134a sticker on it so it could probably be re-gassed for better coling just like the prometias etc

    your thinking they use danfoss compressors but at one point they all used the less gas too ....
