You'd be hard pressed to kill a circuitboard with zip ties, most zip ties will break before you manage to kill the board assuming you'd using the normal cooler mounting holes.

Where the normal cooler bolts through is. Plus zipties (or at least harbor freight zip ties) aren't hard to kill, especially the little ones that fit well through the bolt holes.

Mainly, if the board starts bending STOP TIGHTENING.
There're a couple dead 4890s on the benching team that taught us/reminded us about that.

DICE is -70C (at sublimation), so holding a positive temp isn't possible. You can, however, run ~70% antifreeze and go subzero and then using a chilled water loop with dice will work.

Alcohol was used as a coolant with no radiator (bucket res, dry ice in the bucket, 99% iso coolant) a bit ago, guy guy -50ish degree temps with liquid cooling. Kinda sorta watercooling

Then he bought a cpu pot so he could use dry ice directly.

Is booxze the answer


hi

yes thought of running colling system with wood alcohol as this freezes @ -114c so DICE will still keep it liquid. Only concern was the effects of ethanol on the plumbing and potential corrosion?? Also have you seen the cases that are built around a fridge/freezer pump ?? Some bloke in Poland is knocking them out.
