i talked to some guys at i forget what website. well i took the time to email them and i figured some stuff out.

they got 10 liters for 25 bucks.(from a distributer.)

the 10 liters lasted a cou8ple hours. this was cooling the gpu and p4. they overclocked them both really far. ill look for the link and if i find it ill throw it up on here for ur amusement later tonight.

take a look at www.octools.com , there is an old but nice experiment with ln2
LOL! Yeah, thoose articles are a load of laughs !
Great stuff really. Still I haven't found anything on cooling a whole case though. Yeah, sure, they immerse MB and GPU and CPU. I was more thinking if someone tried running a PC breathing nothing but very cold N2.
Well... I guess´there is no point in supercooling the powersupply.

country- the guys i was talking about that did the ln2 basicly made a big funnel out of steyr foam(i cant spell), but they had a copper heatsink at the bottom i think. in not so sure though. they may have done it direct...

Or just build some sort of pump and cirulation system, that will reliquify the N2 and you are set.
Not just a pump.A refrigeration system using a nitrogen compressor capable of high side pressures over 5000psi.I know someone who has used a LN2 phase change system direct die (evaporator on cpu).He had some tech make it for him, and he cracked his cpu.The compressor made a bad sound and got louder, so he sold it.

Just pouring LN2 in a cup on the cpu is lame.Anyone can just pour ln2 in a cup for a short term test.

Most average joes think it is cool. :)
But in reality, pouring liquid in a cup for a short term test isn't all that cool.

I didn't quite understand your last part "but I bet you had not risked your hardware for this test".
