Sub zero cooling on 12700k

Hi everyone! 

I'm about to build a new high-end system, and wanted to go over to DDR5 and 12th gen Intel, but as the 12th gen has heat problems and I've been wanting for a long long time wanting to use sub zero cooling, do you guys think cooler master or any other would work, using maybe an adapter plate?

what kind of sub zero cooling? what coolermaster product? what motherboard?

 

you need to find out what you want to use for your daily system, and them find out if the solution would fit around the VRM heatsinks of the board. that's basically it.

Since when do coolermaster make sub zero anything? They made that sub ambient peltier thing like 10 years ago if that's what you mean.

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Are you just confusing watercooling with sub-zero cooling ?

Sub-Zero really isn't meant or even used for any day-to-day computer usage. It's only use is breaking Overclocking records. It would be a massive PITA to maintain that for regular use IMO.

You want to daily drive a sub zero cooler?

 

Thats a pretty bad idea and very costly. There is no commercial unit available at this time.

 

The 12700k can still be cooled well with normal coolers like a dark rock pro 4, nhd15, arctic liquid freezer 280/360,... and of course a case with good airflow

There are those weird tec aios that linus made a vid of but 300w tec is quite absurd if you wanna daily it, sure its not gonna run full throttle but a regular aio or aircooler will use much much less power compared to it

 

tecs can pretty much be ignored as theyre really inefficient and just garbage, though interesting doohickeys to play with since theyre dirt cheap and easy to setup

 

 

Cooling wise its literally just air/aio/custom loop -> phase change (chiller loop is pretty meh) -> dice -> ln2 (liquid helium exists but only for cpus with no coldbug)

 

wouldnt bother wasting tons of power just to get the cpu running at ambient under full load, i myself am considering subzero for daily when i get around to building a pc but im only gonna subzero lower power stuff like rams which are very easy to get subzero under load because they sip power

 

 

Basically subzero not worth it, only oc nuts like me would wanna bother with subzero and even then usually not for daily, you gotta have deep pockets and/or hvac experience to play around with proper subzero cooling, or just cheap access to junk working ac units or whatever the hell else gets cold that isnt a cheap tec
