overstatement?

I am gaining 600MHz with just aircooling atm
and phase change cooling doesn't cost 1000 euros
but not a lot less indeed

Btw, those heaterpads are only supplied with a VapoChill unit.
other units just use insulation. Sealingstrips 'n' sh*t.


I don't think it's worth 1000 euro's, cause for a student, that's a lot aaight. But if you can afford it....
And if you're enough, you just build your own. Still not that cheap.... BUT... a lot cheaper than a vapochill imo...
Same about watercooling though. To expensive for me too, so I just built my own

I think it's worth, if you make it yourself and if you can get most if it for cheap.
Otherwise there's no fun about it .

CPU subzero i am loving this

I am using this now for a few years.
First unit vapochill socket/slot A version

Depends on your needs, for me is just pure fun.
If you have the money go for it.
A good complete watercooling set-up cost you same price as a used unit if you are lucky.
