 Review, Prometeia Phase Change Cooler, Part II
Introduction
By: Sverre Sjøthun, May 7, 2003  Print this article

In part one, we discussed phase change cooling and supercooling in theory as well as examined the build of the new LianLi add-on kit. It’s finally time for us to take a look at the actual performance of the Prometeia cooler, overclocking the Pentium 4 3.06.

For those of you that haven’t read part one, we highly suggest that you read it before continuing on with Part II: Prometeia Phase Change Cooling, Part I.

The EasyMod CPU kits
The assembly and mounting of the evaporator that goes on the processor and the mounting kit were pretty much straight forward, on both the Intel and the AMD kits. The CPU kit is both for fastening the evaporator to the CPU as well as combating condensation, which is obviously a major challenge when dealing with such low temperatures.

The minute you go below the dewpoint, condensation will occur, and it is of outmost importance to deal with this. Even more important is it when dealing with well below sub-zero temperatures.

What Chip-con has done is not much different from what I did on my homemade supercoolers -- insulate the CPU and the surroundings as well as the backside of the motherboard using a combination of a silicone sealstring and Aeroflex closed cell foam.

The rear cover, as seen in the image below, goes on the back-side of the motherboard. The metalclip and upper cover is securely fastened to the CPU socket and sealed off with the black seal string. The MicroFreezer is then screwed to the metalclip, and securely fixes the evaporator to the CPU socket.
