Kingpin pots are beautiful as well.
I'll have to check that out myself

I keep thinking about a tech bench but there is always hardware that I need to have & money gets limited, so I still just use a motherboard box...

To add to NoGuru's parts list a k-type thermometer that reads low enough temperatures comes in handy, more for ln2 but would be useful even for DICE with an 1155 rig.

I also use Dragon Skin but that is an option. There is a thread called "Alternative to eraser" that tells about it.

Where can I buy LN2 at?

Is there a website where I can order all these at? I looked around frozen and performancepcs and they only have phase change units as well as only the koolance pot.

Also, I have a puppy, ln2 won't kill him right? as long as it stays in a container (sorry I'm a noob). What are some safety precautions one needs to take?

The expensive part of ln2 is the dewar to keep it in, they go for a few hundred $ used. I rent one but that gets expensive too. Most gas (airgas) supply places should have it.
It's pretty safe stuff as long as it doesn't get spilled, just don't use it in a small unventilated room, it expands a lot changing from liquid to gas & can displace oxygen. I've used it in the living room a fair bit & all is well, just don't use it in a small closed up mancave.
DICE is easier to get started with & get an idea of how freezing works.

Ventilation is an important factor many don't remember.
Liquid nitrogen expands at an incredible rate and can displace oxygen from your room if you are sealed in, keep a fan or open door cracked at all times.
As for a dog, just don't pour it on him. You can actually drink Ln2 if you don't swallow safely.

so I was looking at this thread:

http://www.overclock.net/dry-ice-liq...therboard.html

where does the eraser come to play in this?
post #17 of 46
He is using the frostking instead of eraser, with eraser it goes all around the socket area much the same way. There are a few different ways to insulate, some use eraser or nail polish, conformal coating, vaseline, dragon skin...
Whatever works to keep any condensation/water off the components.

Thanks, now I just read about dewars and how costly they are darn
post #19 of 46
I think that's why so many people end up coming to builders like myself or Scott for cascades and phase units, similar cost in the long run and permanent value instead of just burning off your money by the liter.

Either way, if you do it, pics

as for phase units can it be used 24/7?
