    The Asetek units, yes I remember them.

    As you'd expect there's no blocks for the newer socket types. You'd have to fabricate your own CPU mounting. Beyond that you need to fit two heating elements (one in the CPU block and one behind the motherboard). Also bear in mind that they create condensation so you'd have to be careful to make sure it's all insulated/sealed correctly or else you'll fry most of your PC.


    A quick Google also found this article - http://www.brightsideofnews.com/200...rrection-efforts2c-cites-intel-socket-issues/

    "Unfortunately for the fate of VapoChill, engineers discovered that LGA-1366 and LGA-1156 are not suitable for sub-zero cooling due to the size of the Socket and the amount of hidden places where moist could condense, causing the death of the CPU and motherboard. To paraphrase a great song, Intel’s Socket killed the Cooling Star."

    If Asetek couldn't get socket 1156 working reliably then I doubt ghettoing one for 1150 or 2011 would be a good idea.
