Funky Kit - What is Phase Change cooling?
Posted By: Dennis - Source: Email
This is a pretty short article but does a good job at describing what Phase Change cooling is. Overclockers call this SS or Single Stage meaning that there is only a single coolant loop. Folks that what the stability of Single Stage but need a colder load temperature will get something called a Cascade. Cascade cooling is a Phase Change cooler with any number of coolant loops (usually no more than 3) and can drop the evaporator temp down below -100C.
Thats right, now for future reviews we will be featuring results for extreme cooling. Motherboards and some video cards will be cooled to sub-zero temperatures just for our lucky Funkykit viewers. That means this hardware will be pushed to its extreme limits and have what most people would consider to be excessive amounts of voltage used.
Single stage is really my most favorite cooling method but I've started to really enjoy LN2 cooling since you can vary the temperature..
