If you have proper insulation it's fine. Cascades are the ones that aren't meant to be run 24/7 for two reasons. One, they have much lower temperatures than single stage coolers, and two, if not assembled properly, continous running can cause severe damage to the cooler itself. That said, a guy I know from XS runs his cascade 24/7 with no problems at all.

by cascade, do you mean multiple compressors hooked in series?

Actually, you only have one insulated line inside the case:

That's what a vapochill looks like mounted.




I can deal with Just a line like that. Just need to find me some parts!

Carl; do you have any pics of your setup that you can send me?

Similar, but cascades are basically multiple single stage units cooling each other. You have the first stage with a low pressure refrigerant such as R290, R404a, R507, etc. Instead of having the standard evaporator on this, the capillary tube sends refrigerant into a heat exchanger, which replaces the condensor on the second stage. That way, instead of having an ambient air cooled condensor, the second stage refrigerant is being cooled by the first stage refrigerant at lower than -30 degrees. The second stage has a higher pressure refrigerant, some of the common ones being R1150 (Ethylene) or R170 (Ethane). This allows for much lower cpu temperatures (<-70 celsius).
