OCZ Cryo-Z phase change cooler for LGA1156/1366 starts shipping for $379

Posted on Friday, December 11 2009 @ 00:00:35 CET by

X-bit Labs reports OCZ will soon start shipping a new Cryo-Z phase change cooling solution, the latest model features support for AM2, LGA775, LGA1366, and LGA1156 processors. It will be available at Frozen CPU for $379.
OCZ Technology's Cryo-Z is an advanced cooling solution for the extreme overclockers using phase-change technology to achieve sub-zero – from -40C to -55C – temperatures at the CPU. The Cryo-Z was developed with optimal user-friendliness in mind, including the insulation of the cooled parts as a necessary precaution against condensation, something that has kept Freon phase change coolers out of the consumer market. To reduce any exposure of cold surfaces to the ambient case air, every chilled surface of the Cryo-Z has been carefully insulated. In addition, a heating element is provided to be attached to the back of the motherboard, in order to prevent condensation behind the motherboard.

The Cryo-Z Freon-based cooler is rather bulky and heavy: 46cm x 21cm x 25.6cm (18” x 8.2” x 10.1”), 26 kilograms. Furthermore, it requires customized computer case so that to attach the nozzle to the CPU. In addition, Cryo-Z and the system itself should be interconnected. Before the system can be powered up, the Cryo-Z needs to pre-cool the head. Once the temperature at the CPU reaches -30C, the control logic allows power-up of the computer.
