Hell yea, gotta start somewhere. I need some milk, help me out. So what hardware do you recommend to start? LN2 or Phase change?

To be completely honest, the "extreme cooling" mods have been out of style for a long time. This thread last had interesting entries nearly 10 years ago. Off the shelf cooling solutions have gotten much better over the years, and CPUs/GPUs are so fast that it hardly warrants the effort for this kind of cooling.
If you really want to pioneer a return to the days of old, like Pendragon1 said, you should make a thread and see if some of the old hats come out of the woodwork. LN2 is still alive today, I haven't seen a phase change kit in a long time however. BTW, phase change is just a fancy word for what a refrigerator does lol.

One of my favorite builds, it’s from the days of socket 939
DFI NF4 UltraD
165 0pteron cooled with a modified coolit freezone that was hooked up to a meanwell adjustable powersupply had to insulate everything because of condensation from coolit freezone.
GPU was cooled with Danger Den
