They WILL replace it. I'll see to that, but if not, sure thing.

i know, but it would be nice to have the parts. If the shop does not take it, you can always send it back directly.

if i owned a computer store, i wouldn't sell you a mousepad, let alone something that is RMAable. They are all going to start blacklisting you soon.

you must have broken a mirror while standing on one of those little green irish midgets or something mate.

maybe you should just start dropping them out of the box before you put them in, its a short cut :P j/k, really that does suck though, I think your credit card is gunna run away screaming, along with any componet you threaten to touch! One day though, when you got it up and goin, you'll make us all hurt with you're scores.

I sure hope so.

It seems that OCuK were happy for me to RMA it. But might have to wait a week or so for a replacment.

No, Phase change is neither air cooling or water cooling.

It's the same process that makes your freezer cold.

It has something to do with the large amount of energy that is transfered when a substance changes its phase, one way or the other, its endothermic or exothermic. This basically takes advantage of it. At least, that's what I think having never really looked into it.

Not quite, its to do with the the latent heat of the refrigerant in the system. Its exactly the same as a domestic fridge or freezer, except the cold box, the evaporator is the CPU block....and its much smaller!

Endothermic and Exothermic referes to chemical reactions that absorb or release energy/heat. The Vapochill is a physical change of state, hence Phase Change..

What Laz said.

Razor, that 9800 is fine As for everything else. I really don't know how I did it. Kind of funny in a non funny kind of way.
