Default Silent Phase Cooler - SB Friendly :D

So finally another cooler for sale

This is one of the units I'd put together in the 'Vapo Mod' thread, as an example of how to rework older units for high load.
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=264286
The cooler itself was the 'Twin Turbo' unit, but the compressor was replaced with a very low noise 1/4hp version.
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=262615
And it's quiet. Very quiet. After the initial 10 seconds or so of the compressor getting started it goes almost silent, hard to hear over the fans, which are also very quiet. I used a pair of Antec 3 speed fans. The front is at 'medium' setting and the rear at 'high'.


Both fans pull air in, which is vented through the side blowholes. There is a condensor mounted front and back, which is the reason that low noise fans are possible, and load temps remain very good.


It's also fitted with a small suction line heat exchanger, which helps with the load charge and enhances subcooling in the captube.

Overall temps run -40 unloaded, and -20c at 350w measured at the evap.

It will go very slightly colder when the compressor is still cold.

So it should tend to keep the actual cpu core temp around 10c at the highest load, and -10 at low load. This should end up being pretty good for the Sandy Bridge cpu's according to most of the testing going on.


Comes with foam tape and a few sheets of insulation for install.

Also comes with all the mounting hardware for Intel, I made a custom Perspex plate set for it, slotted for Intel mounting.


Flex line is 24", so good for a bench setup, but still short enough to use under a case if you prefer.


Evap is a larger Duniek one, ideal for high load cpus. The 350w capacity means it'll work well right up to 6 core load.


I'll include the original plates, with universal holes for everything else. The originals didn't have room for 1156/1366 holes.

The only 'bad' is the display on it. I waited for 3 weeks to get a probe for it, only to find out it won't read that well. It works, but only has a 30 degree total range. At 20c/room temp, it reads around 5c. At -40c, it reads around -20c.




It's annoying, but still works as a reference to know it's cold enough to boot. I don't have another display here right now for it, and I've installed a second K type probe for a meter. If you need precision measurements, that's where to get them but the display works enough to use it. The temperatures are what they are, regardless. I can't just take out the display, since it would leave a great big hole

Ideally, booting when the display is around -10 or colder works well, for those that don't have a K type thermometer.

So I'm making it a bargain, with that one small flaw in an otherwise nice quiet cooler.

I'm asking for $525 plus shipping. That usually runs 50 bucks in Canada, around $75 in the US.

Guaranteed for a year of course. I'll guarantee the display will continue to work, just as it is as well.

As always, willing to consider trades.

Thanks

Oh, and I'd taken the pics that were tagged with XS on them. Sorry, can retake more photos with HWC instead if it matters. I put links to the build threads as well that are on XS, since I haven't gotten them here yet but I can remove those if it's against policy. Hope it's ok, there's info in there that people might want to know about.

Thanks for the bumps tho And thank you Zsamz, I have to say you were just about the best guy I ever dealt with. Gonna have to chat again sometime :)

Trying really hard to stick to the rules, only post a couple times a day at most. (last time got a little outta hand )

But no point in just a bump, may as well drop it bit while I'm here...

So $500 plus shipping to you

Did I mention it's really quiet?

If the displays that are on the way end up arriving before it goes (no idea when they will :( ) I'll replace it (if it fit's the same) but it may end up bumping the price up again.

Act now while supplies last!

Yep, I was going to just change that completely, but it was funny. I'm such an idiot

Hey Bernz! Yep, I wasn't sure where I'd use the Antec's and then this one was just perfect for them. The airflow is just enough to work really nice with a low noise level :) I don't think those fans are going to last long, too many things to do with them! Thanks again :)

Oh, and this is a...

'Too early in the morning but my Sister called to say she just gave birth' Bump...Guess I'm an uncle again Gonna have to save up for a Harley for this one. Gotta be a bad influence :D


So in celebration, I'll be dropping the price just a bit again :D


Down to $475 plus shipping!

Pretty cheap for such a pretty and quiet cooler!

Oh, and the display thing really isn't that big an issue. Even if you don't have a K type meter, it still works fine for knowing it's cold and booting up. It bothers me more than it would bother anyone actually using it.

Can't guarantee numbers, but I would think that a fair bit further than watercooling, and it's so quiet it's hard to tell there's a fridge in there :)

Thanks Rasparthe :)

Well it is the run down from Xmas, and everyone's broke (including me of course :D )

So...another little price drop.

How about $450 plus shipping?

About as cheap as I can go unfortunately, or at least until I win a lottery (then it's free coolers from then on :D )

So in Canada $500 bucks should cover shipping and everything.

Still willing to look at trades/part trades if you have something cool.

A decent DSLR would be great! Then I can find out if I really do suck at photography :D
