Another Affordable Phase Attempt
 
Just about every hardcore enthusiast knows about OCZ's failed Cryo-Z phase change system that never materialized.  Designed to be a low-cost extreme cooling solution, the unit suffered from quality control and shipping issues.  Well, now a relatively unknown company is taking a shot at it.
 
Turbo Cooling, founded in 2004, is a US-based company started by a small group of gamers and overclockers. With degrees in engineering and computer science, and four years of experience, these once novice PC custom builders and tuners have evolved into professional overclockers. The developers of Turbo Cooling are working very hard to make their mark in the PC world.

In 2007, Turbo Cooling partnered with Taichi Industrial Corp., a China-based industrial cooling corporation, to develop and market a phase-change cooling system. Phase-change cooling (PCC) has the potential of becoming the next generation of CPU cooling. Turbo Cooling has doubled its design team to work on this compact, efficient, and economical cooling system. We are confident that our products will meet the needs of gamers and overclockers by providing lower CPU temperatures, increasing PC performance, and most importantly, spending less in CPU upgrades.

We are certain that our commitment, dedication, and pride will provide you with superior products to satisfy your CPU cooling needs.
 
So it seems that Turbo Cooling has been working on their unit for quite some time.  Now, after recovering from Hurricane Ike, they have released some performance numbers.
 
 
 
Now before you say, "OMG those aren't sub-zero!", make sure to note that those temperatures are shown in Fahrenheit.  Thus, the Prescott reached -1.67°C under load at 4.48GHz and the Q6600 hit -3.33°C under load at 4GHz.
 
The unit, dubbed the Ice Age, weighs in under 25 pounds, utilizes R134a refrigerant, and is expected to retail for $199-249.

Will this new player in the cooling field be able to succeed where OCZ failed?
