Is that ice that we see on top of the pot?

Could you explain the photos you have posted above?

You can either use LN2 or Dry Ice+Acetone in a pot like that. Great for short fun benching sessions.

@ Sankar,
Yeah its frost on the top of the pot.
Explain the photos...well its a copper pot used on the CPU to cool it, As mentioned by ROC, I have used Dry Ice +Acetone mixture,which gives me -70c temperature.
Very useful for extreme overclocking.

@ LBM, how i wish it was true, unfortunately even though LN2 itself is cheap, the dewar to store it is expensive :(
Wish to do LN2 one day,when i can afford the Dewar
@gkrishn,
Yep thats part of my Benching setup.

BTW, Moralfibre made me start this thread.lol

hey nice job on the thermal design , but why don't you try thermocouple to do the same, no need for the liquids...just a suggestion....

Good to see that. One day you will be doing with Liquid Nitrogen also.

I told a little liberty here.

Here is a over clocker guru at a competition in Singapore....

There are few cooler which work with this principle

Here's my best so far... motherboard limited. The board has an FSB wall. CPU will go higher



Benching Config:

Intel C2D E8400
Abit IP35-E
2GB GSkill 2GBHZ
ATI x300.
On air cooling with an Ultra-120

TECs are risky for CPUs... if the junction fails, the CPU will fry. Also cooling the hot side is a lot of pain and to cool a modern quad core CPU, you'd need a 350W TEC which means huge power consumption. Using dry ice is much easier, also less risky and gives way lower temperatures.
