this is from November 2010 article in Maximum PC:
"The Sub-Zero is made up of a series of TEC peltier coolers working in tandem with other liquid cooling components. Freezing liquid is delivered to the CPU, making ultra chilly temperatures (and high overclocks) possible.
As always, you have to pay to play, and a base configuration for rigs utilizing the new cooling solution start at $3,900."
Price is same as some computer rigs out there, incredible, i get the ideal of why its to cool the gpu's and cpu, how critical is it to cool the chip set on the mobo? I've read pro's and con's about this, just wondering if anyone else has an opinion on this. thanks.........
This is the config: i came up with from Digital Storm.... would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations concerning this build...thanks.
