    I'd love to have it to take apart and tinker with. I'd probably make a single evap unit out of it and put it on my old 1090t machine and see how high i could take it before it burst into flames.

    So would one of these keep a 220W 8350 cool? If so, what kind of 24/7 overclock room would I gain over a watercooler setup? I assume I could use the water cooler (120x240x80 copper radiator and a 355...
