Thanks, I'll put in 1 shot glass to start and see how high that goes.

I just thought of an idea for the base, but I'm not sure if it's a good one because of one of the cons it has.
I could try and solder the 3 small tubes so that there is a small gap between the base and the tube, that way acetone will be at the same level everywhere in the base because it will flow up through the bottom. But the con is now the 3 small tubes have less surface area contacting the base, therefore seeming to lessen their purpose.
What do you guys think?

Also, any word on amount of DICE? I am clear on the acetone now, just not too sure about DICE quanity.

The only issue I can see (with both) is that your mass is on the sides. You need mass to be directly over the center to keep the temperatures from changing too quickly!

Nice to see you preparing to do some dicing, though

Gonna try to beat my records with that chip?

I would just make sure that the tubes are not that tall so the acetone can flow over the top of them.
As far as how much DICE to use, I keep the pot about half full most of the time but if I am running a bench that does not create much heat I might just fill it to the top so I don't have to add to it for a while.

SuperPi=cool running=full pot

WPrime=hot running=half pot

You will see the acetone start boiling up when running a hot benchmark.

Thanks, I'm starting to see that is the issue too from feedback. I'm going to go back to the store and see if I can come up with any other heavier designs, and I've got one more store to check out...but if neither have what I want I'll just wait till my finals are over and get a real pot this summer.

Yeah I can't wait, it's been long enough haha.

I'm going to try might have a trick up my sleeve once summer comes...in the form of something vibrantly orange

Good call, I could probably cut the tubes in half or something. I think I may be able to get more of those thick rings, in progressively smaller sizes, and fill the base with them and have one small center hole. We'll see if I can come up with a design that I like for an acceptable price, now that I know what to shoot for. If I can't get at least a 2.5 LB base then I think I'm scratching home built.

Thanks for the DICE advice too. I can't wait

For a first pot & making it yourself might be better to keep it simple like design 2 though.
For copper you will want to braze it, I just use the propane torch for plumbing, MAP might be better for brazing with the temperatures it will go under. I don't really know since I haven't done or fixed my own pot before...
Maybe he could drill holes in the sides of the 3 tubes a bit off the bottom so the soldering doesn't cover them. That way the acetone could flow evenly along the bottom.

Design one for sure since it looks like it would give you the most surface area to dissipate heat keeping your processor nice and cool

Not a bad idea with the holes.

If you have a stock Intel heatsink, you can take out the copper core. It's got decent mass and would help bulk up your base!

Hey good thinkin there!! I do happen to have the stock heatsink, the guy I got this processor from sent the whole box and original heatsink...the heatsink turned out to be the only worthwhile investment
