Default Wankerfx's phase unit in the making

Well, I decided to jump ship with water cooling after a little incident, and I decided to go subzero. NoL helped me out on this one, and is almost done building me my unit. Now for the pictures:



First glance.



Unloaded temperature. (Still not tuned)



Beastly evap with some ice action.



Nice view of the unit.



Closeups on electronics.

I'm really happy with Adam's work at this point, I recommend him to anyone in need of a phase unit

Just so we're clear here.... this unit is designed for 24/7 operation, and tuning it will hopefully deal with most condensation issues?

I think all SS systems are good to go for 24/7 use, and tuning it will deal with heatload issues. This one is going to be tuned for 250W =)

Yes designed for 24/7. What do you mean though tuned to deal with condensation issue? Insulation is really not that hard, people seem to have this odd idea of insualtion, its 10x easier then doing a water setup. Wanker will be doing a very basic insulation job, that will hold him easily :)

I guess my question is because I don't quite understand this "tuning" deal...

I obviously haven't done any research into the tech, but it seems to me that a person would want to have the maximum temperature at which their CPU will post, but it also makes me wonder if it can be "tuned" for room temperature which (in my mind anywise) would offer better-than-water OCs, but not build up condensation due to a major difference in temperature between the cpu and ambient air.

Units are tuned for a particular heat load, ie. 250W, it doesnt have anything do do with room temp or whatever. He just means it will be set up for hot running processors without sacrificing too much cold. A stock vapo or similar would be tuned for much less heat load so you would see load evap temps near 0C or higher, while a proper unit like this would keep evap prob below -35C under load.
