    Cryo-Z Ready To Ship





    OCZ Cryo-Z phase change units ready to ship

    Overclock3D has some exclusive information regarding OCZ Technology's highly anticipated Cryo-Z phase change cooling units. According to our OCZ source, the units are packaged and ready to ship. The images that we've received confirm that this is most definitely the case.

    Release details are sketchy to say the least, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

    I'll believe it when I see it, but the photos are very promising.

    LOL, hopefully! I doubt this is really going to catch on though, now that I think about it; insulating, cost of electricity, extra heat dump into room and more it's really just a pain. Good & cheap for a benching unit though.

    They should do alright, but they won't be any Cooler Express or Vapochill phase unit...

    I like most of the vender reps here. They're all generally helpful. Sure they're biased. That's their job. When you threaten the prosperity of a person then they get defensive. As far as I'm concerned OCz does a great service to the overclocking community. They make a variety of products and a lot of them are great for us. Same goes for Team, Corsair, G,Skill, abit and mushkin.






    when is the hydrojet out?

    At least its way better then Watercooling at a similar price .. but Power usage might be a question.

    I"m sure it takes some time to make such a thing. Perhaps they hit a snag in development. It's not like nothing else EVER gets set back in the tech industry.

    Is the stuff that launches on time greater then the stuff that launches late?

    Maybe they were made with lead paint and needed to be recalled or something?

    If any OCZ people are lurking... is it likely to make it to the UK soon & for a sensible comparative price?

    If it's cheaper I might just pick one up next time i'm in the US.

    On the bright side, their phase change technology won't be outdated by the time they finally launch it.

    lol jeez give ocz a break, but yeah i am kinda mad at this thing delayed and delayed .... i really hope those boxes r the actual thing ...

    1 thing that keeps me away from phase change is the fact that u have to coat ur board to insulate , + dielectric grease, and most manufactures dont accept RMA after u done that, so i dunno ... ill think about it, maybe i wont insulate next time ....

    Perhaps they arent boxes at all, just stacks of CRYO-Z labeling protected by a cardboard sleeve

    I have a feeling that this unit was delayed so long because of this reason, with all the latest cpu's putting out so much heat, especially the quad of course. A unit that is cheap and can remove so much heat must have been a real challenge for ocz I think.
    I also remember reading a while back that ocz where also having problems with import and shipping for these things.

    I'm guessing here but I would say the delay was in trying to source the items (evap, condensor , compressor) at a low enough price to meet there production model. sometimes you design something but it cannot be made for a reasonable price so you put it on the back-burner and when the prices become favorable , you release it.
