    Ive never seen anything like it.

    Some guy found a cool way of using dry ice for cooling.

    He should have used a normal heatsink, heatpipes don't work very well at low temperatures.

    well, not a whole lot compared to other extreme cooling methods, you can get mineral oil for about $10/gal and dry ice for about $1.25/lb so with 4 gallons of oil and 8lbs of ice that would be $50, he has more than that though.

    Well some watercooling setups are just as much work and only hold ambient temps, but they can do it 24/7.
    I wonder how this guys setup would run without the dry ice.

    some one mentioned the heatpipe heatsink earlier....how that wasnt a good idea. Blow nearly $100 on everything, and screw yourself over but not knowing too much...
    whatever....

    You kidding? It wouldnt. The heat transfer properties of oils are horrible. It would overheat in a matter of minutes and shut down or burn out.

    Its flashy, but its not practical, it doesnt last and the preformance is horrible. Meh, fun to look at but thats it.
