Today is finally the day when we can tell you more about the OCZ Technology Cryo-Z. The information that we have gathered is not from a press release nor an assumption based on seeing the unit at a technology show. This is in fact real hands on with the unit, sitting at the Secret Bunker of Technology.Check it out at TweakTown. The Cryo-Z does a good job at keeping a processor cooler, the reviewer found the cooler kept the test bed at -21.6°C in idle and -12.8°C in load. The noiselevel is quite high though, under idle and load there's 68dBA at 1.5 feet so it's definitely not a cooling solution for fans of silent computer systems.
Not listed in OCZ’s official documentation is the fact that the Cryo-Z was designed in part by chilli1, a HVAC/R engineer who has become known in the computer enthusiast industry for making one-off and small scale production phase change components.
