I just built a new system based around a Core i7 965 on a Rampage II Extreme socket 1366 motherboard.  I am using thermoelectric cooling as Asetek has not released a Socket 1366 adapter for Core i7 motherboards and I am not comfortable with my attempts to fashion an adapter for my Vapochill LS as I cannot get a tight seal and am worried about condensation etc.  If anyone has adapted a Vapochill for Socket LGA1366 yet I would love to hear from you or if you would build adapters please contact me.  Thanks.

No problem.  I purchased a really well made adapter kit from a guy in Poland who takes PayPal.  He is well known and has pictures of his work posted on an extreme systems forum.  The kit to adapt a Vapochill Lightspeed to a socket LGA1366 costs 45 Euro's, which includes shipping to the United States (as of 1/26/09 that translates to approximately $60).   He is very reliable and I recieved my kit within two weeks; he had done a beutiful job of laser cutting the pieces and all mounting hardware was included.  You can get in touch with him at duniek1986@poczta.fm.  As for payment, his PayPal e-mail is different from his main one so be sure to ask him where to send payment first!!  Good luck!

Don't worry!!  Different time zone.  You e-mailed him at 10:30am and he was likely at work.  I never recieved immediate replies but he does get back to you fairly quickly and in perfect english.  Once again don't worry about it he will get in touch with you.  If you have not heard from him in a day drop me a line and I will send you his other e-mail.  Take care.
