LIQIUD NITROGEN COOLING
Where can i find info on liquid nitrogen cooling? How expensive is it? Can i put liquid nitrogen in a water cooling system like the koolance ones?
Please tell me all you know about liquid nitrogen cooling. Thanks!

Its actually VERY simple to accomplish, it just isnt so practical for much other then getting extreme benchmarks while risking possibly ruining expensive components---

I see you're looking into serious cooling. Try looking at the Innovacool from Innovatek.de. That would be my first choice, if I had the money.
Also, are you interested in liquid nitrogen or vapor phase cooler? Vapor is way better than Nitrogen if your determined to go extremely cold.
Go ahead and click the nitrogen link, very bad engrish ahead.

I've been looking over those water cooling setups for a while, myself. Forgot about the freezer, though Kind of out of my budget

check out the Prometeia
Max PC BM'ed it.
Took a 2.8 GHz pentium that ran at 114F w/stock cooling OC'ed to 3066.
They OC'ed it using the Prometeia system to 3.6 GHz at 5F!!!! That's FIVE degrees.... 27 below freezing 2.8 OC'ed to 3.6.
all that for $700
The Prometeia is optimized for maintaining below -40C/-40F in the range up to 80W, but capable of maintaining an impressive -28C at a CPU load of 150W at 20C ambient temperature, thus having a comfortable margin for future processors.
From a Prometeia system mounted with Intel Pentium 4 2.2 GHz (Northwood) @1.8V @ +3 Ghz running CPU Stability Test 6.0. maximizing the CPU heat production, average display temperature of the evaporator shows -35C / -31F

LN2 is only good for running extreme benchmarks. You cannot keep enuff LN2 on the system for long enuff (it all boils away and ya need to constantly refill the system).
Phase change is the way to go if your wanting extremely low temps 24/7. Go get yaself a vapochill or prometia!

I have seen some very good results from phase change, but they're damn expensive! LN2 is only any good, as others have said for running benchmarks for a short period of time as it all biols away and isn't really practical for normal use, whereas these phase change units are and much more effective as well._____
