  1. I am surprised that's the best price you can get LN2 for, especually with college/ uni help. I got it for about a dollar from a welding supply shop. I think airgas is cheaper
  2. thats the part that pretty much everyone just buys, I think they are for sale for around 100$. they were last I checked. and then you are just brazing after that. which isn't much. if you can get the gas and access to the filling equipment you are kinda set, thats really the biggest waste of money. ... hmm its been a long time since I looked I guess and I don't think that website is up anymore. I would open a new WTB thread just for the head, maybe contact some people on XS. Fugger can totally help. keep an eye out on ebay too maybe? but its definitely going to be a challenge getting that, or a phase. these things just aren't popular anymore. LN2 is too cheap. these are loud n bulky. and Overclocking in general is just a lot more expensive than it used to be. The demand isn't there anymore I guess
  3. i'd seriously consider building one yourself then. It may be a hundred more or so than you'd want to spend but I don't think people make new ones. I have been around the forums for quite a few years now, they really only pop up once a year. and even then a lot are broken. if you aren't confident with your skill, practice or find someone who is because I was friends with a guy who built these and designed the head most people used said it was really easy. only problem really is getting the gas IIRC and if you can do an ac chiller with all that I bet you could do a phase way easier
  4. also I feel anything single stage is gonna have a tough time on modern cpu packages. if they aren't tuned and maintained properly especially so. Also this is going to be a game of patience. phase change hasnt been popular for quite a few years now, and even when it was, it was EXPENSIVE, and between shipping, damage, gas fees. a lot of people just threw them out or burried them in their garages you might have better luck over on xtremesystems fugger is the go to guy on phase n that's his stomping grounds
  5. TBH its going to be expensive, and hard to track down. probably beter off perfecting your DICE game. I know there are some on the east coast, but the problem is only one guy really made them or makes them, and he does the insane stuff mostly. you might be best off looking for a dead one on ebay and trying to refill or fix it. since you are at a college, Id even consider building one yourselves. The hardest part to get ahold of is gonna be the cooling head but I think someone still makes those in EU and itll be a lot cheaper to get ahold of than a whole system. you can get a deep freeze compressor off ebay. The info is out there if you look hard enough. also I feel anything single stage is gonna have a tough time on modern cpu packages. if they aren't tuned and maintained properly especially so.
  6. what country are they in?
  7. its a lot easier to find a unit over in the EU than the US, don't worry too much bro. There are definitely a few around
  8. Hey all, I am picking up one of these behemoth GPUs, but for gaming sadly, its just the card. So does anyone have the OEM bundled waterblock, backplate, and oc panel laying around, that they don't need or want? This WOULD be the place to ask, I figure. I found the bykski block , but I am concerned it won't fit due to their being 2 pcb variations of this card, and either way would prefer the original. Thanks for your time. I am based in the US
