I once heard a story about an ancient god named kingpin, who liked to throw things at his worshipers. Every once and a while he would grab a pot by accident and throw it, and that's how the CPU pot came into existence.

... or something like that. In modern times I'd say keep an eye on the FS section, maybe some people who sell them at XS? Personally I'd like to know as well so I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I wouldn't think so, basically mill a big chunk of copper down into a tube with a nice base, maybe do some fancy stuff on the inside on the base for better heat transfer. Definitely a lot of stuff over at XS about that.

If you have access to nice size copper blocks and the proper equipment, I'd definitely try making one yourself.

well my brother can get akk that stuff .. he works fo the millwrights (spelling) .. so would an extra large pot be better ? and what about mounting ? just look at what regular heat sinks use and make it similar ?

and do i have it right about using clear coat ?

Clear coat? Eh, no clue.

You really need to either search that over at XS or wait for one of the people who actually run DICE/LN2 on a regular basis to show up (a.k.a. the benching crew). I just strap jet engines on to my AC7, don't know diddly squat about how to make a pot.

Hey you guys...stop it :( Your taking me back to the "good ol' days" :D

Don't they have a benching thing every year out in cali? You ought to make it down there one of these days.

EDIT: back on topic, I noticed kingpin has a northbridge pot for 55$, think that can be used for CPUs?

Better than sticking DICE on this AC7, eh?

Also, I might make my way out there one of these days. I'm sure we can have some fun when your not benching. :cool:

Hey man, one of our members "sno.lcn" recently wrote a guide on sub zero insulating...
http://www.overclockers.com/subzero-cooling-insulation-guide/

Koolance makes some cheap pots that work great with dry ice:
http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/default.php?cPath=120

But if you want the good stuff...check out kingpin cooling:
http://kingpincooling.com/

And like KonaKona said, if you want something on the cheap and you're not in a big hurry, keep an eye out in the Classifieds section :beer:

its not hard finding stuff here !
