It's about time they released those. I was waiting and Thermaltake kept saying "soon, soon".

The Kandalf is an amazing case IMHO. I cannot complain about any of the Thermaltake products that I am a proud owner of.

I am actually looking for a nice watercooler for the Memory, GPU's, North/South Bridges, and HDD's. Because you can't freeze those to -40C. The Hard Drives will fail to operate below like 10C or something like that.

system memory?

and do you know when the AquaBays will be out, if they are not already. And are they supposed to be good?

thought you can only WC the NB. not the South Bridge.

I am going Thermaltake for my CPU and GPU. I dont know what to do for chipset. My ideas may change again though. Who knows?


The Kandolf is the same thing as the armor just w/ a different front. It looks to me the Armor has more airflow because it is open in the front.

The doors come off the Kandalf. And yes the system memory.

The Asus A8N-SLI Premium has a heatpipe on the chipset because it gets so freaking hot. I'll just get some thermal adhesive and throw a waterblock on it.

Hey, I know this might sound like a dumb question, but can a computer ever be too cold? I mean like, If you leave it in your un-insulated garage in -10 degree weather?

Yes, there are many components on a computer than can get too cold.
Hard Drives, Memory, Optical & Floppy drives, even the motherboard itself.

Hard drives for instance cannot operate below 40°F, but can be stored non-operational down to -40°F.

There is also the problem of condensation when extreme heat and cold mix together that could cause problems.

I just call them. They never respond to E-mails and I prefer actually talking to a human being.

I can't find the environmental tolerences of AMD Processors, all I see is a max temperature of 70°C. I would venture a guess of -120°C being the absolute limit I would cool a processor dowm to. I could be way off though, I'm too hung over to look right now.

Uhm, most businesses only operate from 9am - 5pm Monday through Friday. Heck, down here most places are closed on Monday. 3 day weekend summer hours.

LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) is the coolest you can get a CPU too, which equates to about -189c ish effective temperature. Or you can use a cascade to cool it to sub -100 which is a more sensible for longer periods.

It is out on DVD ya know ;)

But, Liquid Nitrogen would freeze tap water or distilled water, HOWEVER, there are additives you can add to water, and other liquids, to decrease the temperature at which they freeze.

Just try adding a bunch of salt to some distilled water and sticking it in your freezer at -1 degrees (below the point where pure water would freeze).

3M actually do a sub-zero super-heat-dissipating liquid that can literally be in contact with the board and won't short out the circuits. You can completely submerge your entire board, CPU, memory, cards, into this stuff to keep it cool with no ill effects. Problem is, last time I heard, this stuff costs about 10 grand a gallon, heh.

i think i have heard about that, that is what they use for sprinklers for businesses, so they do not short out the computers in a fire. on the down side, they computers will fry in the fire. lol.

i will pick up some distilled water next time i get the chance, the water i drink is purified, but by reverse osmosis, so that will short out my components. i will check the TiVo for that movie.

keep posting!

RO De-Ionizes the water, I don't think you want to drink that unless they add special minerals into it. We use that in the labs to make the drugs.

They use Halon for the server rooms BTW.

I have a feeling your like one of those bio-chemists that build bombs.
You really need to get some sleep.

I got through Organic Chemistry, and Biology I & II. But I had to take those as prerequisites for a Bioinformatics course I took.

I don't build bombs. I'm Catholic and Sicilian(75%), Italian(16%), Lithuanian(4.5%) and Polish(4.5%). Not the kind of background for a crazy bomber. The woman is the bio-geek.

And I try to get around 6 - 7 hours of sleep. That works with a suppliment of 1000mg of caffiene.
