I picked up a Kyrotech
So I saw a Kryotech case on Craigslist last week. $25.. Nothing inside it, just the essential Kryo gear.. So I jumped on it.. Not sure what I'd toss in it.. I run nothing but Mac's now, but I could build a Hackintosh and toss a Core 2 Duo or something in it.. Anyways.. I get it home and pop it open and it seems kind of fishy that there's only this big metal plate, no insulation, no clamshell thing that I remember them running. So I do some googling and it turns out this thing is the "Kryotech Renegade".. Their were two versions, I got the version with the LCD readout.. It was a cheapened and dumbed down version of the Kryotech meant to only cool the CPU down to room temperature. Blah, what the hell is the point really? Looks like Kryotech has since gone out of business. Poor guys, they don't even have a Wikipedia entry! Anyways.. I could toss on some pelts, but I've never liked pelts.. It's bad enough the refrigeration unit on this thing sucks down 140watts of power, I don't need another couple hundred watts of pelts.. I pay my own power bill, and I didn't just swap out 25 bulbs in my house with CCFL's just to be sucking down the power I saved in new ways.. I could cool my CPU down to room temp with water for almost nothing in wattage.. Anyways.. I bet there's a way to defeat the thermostat in this thing and get it to at least chill the CPU down to freezing.
Looking back on some of the overclocks that Kryotech did, they really were kind of lame.. Athlon 600 at 800.. I had my Athlon 600 at 933 on water.. K6-3 450 at 500.. 50MHz!?!?! Go home! heh.. And if you read between the lines, most of the reviewers had stability problems with the systems they were testing.. heh..

Well the reason it only cools to room temp i suspect is because thats all the compressor can handle... Maybe with a bigger condenser or if your lucky by slapping a couple fans on it you can get it to safely chill more. You can probably easily enough trick it though to get colder :p

Followed through on those plans. :) Works like a champ.

I too picked up a Kryotech, the SuperG model. Basically a "barebones" system with a crappy Microstar mobo and an AMD slotA 750 CPU. Supposed to do 1ghz.

I fired it up for the first time last night just to see how cold the evap would get, -50'F on the display. Scared me, as it only held that for about 15 seconds and then shut down. Stuck a two pound block of copper on the evap and it ran untill the copper block was too cold to hold! So I guess it's temp limited.

I'm going to put it on the PC in my sig. Some "old school" overclocking.
I've gotten from 550 to 680mhz on air , but won't even run SuperPi there.
If I just boot XP, and don't run anything, I find that the more air I put on the CPU the longer it will run before crashing, so I'm pretty sure it's a CPU temp limit I'm hitting.
I've got a nice 256 stick of Toshiba with Samsung ICs that's SPD timed 100-2, 2, 2, 5 and 125-3, 3, 3, 6. The 440MX modo is a 100 buss, so I think that if I re-SPD it to 100-3, 3, 3, 6 and run a stripped down XP I'll be good for benching.

Now to convert the evap mount from slotA to slot1......should be easy, he said...

Bill, if you'd be interested in selling the Athlon 750 I have a dead 750 here I need to replace. I also need a PSU...
