The Super G2
Kryotech's SuperG2 is very reminiscent of the original SuperG; from the outside the case is identical, it isn't until you make the journey to the inside of the case that you actually see any differences.
The evaluation unit we tested was from SYS, the same company that provided the original SuperG for review. SYS custom configures the system while Kryotech actually manufactures the case and all of the cooling components.
The base of the chassis holds the compressor which is powered separately from the rest of the system. In addition to the compressor is the condenser contained in the base. The copper pipes run from the condenser up through the chassis in a flexible tube called the thermal bus. On the front of the base a small two line LCD display provides the temperature of the plate that comes in contact with the CPU. This place is a part of a device known as the KryoCavity which is an enclosure that mounts to the chassis and sits around the CPU.
Unlike conventional heatsinks that clip onto the CPU socket, the KryoCavity is entirely too heavy for that so it is mounted in the same way that Pentium 4 heatsinks are mounted – using the four holes surrounding the CPU socket.
The KryoCavity has a rubber insulator around its base to help prevent condensation, and on the inside of the cavity a moisture absorbing packet. The circular hole in the KryoCavity is for the copper heat exchanger that is connected to the thermal bus. On the end of the heat exchanger that comes in contact with the CPU a bit of thermal paste is applied to aid in the transfer of heat.
