It will break your processor if you use direct contact, the rapid up and down temp changes will stress it until it cracks.

If you are willing to shove a chunk of dry ice against the heatsink the whole time it will get colder than stock temps, but nowhere near where a proper dice pot would.

Just use a cheap pot...

I have some experience doing crasy stuff like this(mostly with vga's).
put some eracer around the socket for insulation,then make a tray with some aluminium foil or break the fan off a stock cooler and just hold down the dice on it ake sure to put towels around the heatsink area to make sure the little pieces of dice that form dont end up all over the place if you use a stock heatsink....yes it will get loud like chalkboard with nails run over it.tongue.gif

the dice can be cut to your liking from block or slab with a bandsaw, for use like this you can not use pellets

as said it will cool it down under zero but load temps it will rise fast with out a proper pot but would be ok just for cpuz np..
you will catch the "cold bug" and get a proper pot after this i bet wink.gif

It has been done before...

pretty sure FTW420 or Gappo made a DICE box that sat at the intake side of teh air-cooler and provided frozen air.. temps were down in the neg. 30c range.

 

 There are lots of creative ways to get teh heat transfer you need for good OC... but as stated... you needs VOLTS :cheers:

if you dont care about it, i would be interested to see the temp drop.

Yes it will do that and sometimes even do a little "Dance"/vibrate in the process - Kinda freaky yet fun to watch. I tried that once when I was experimenting with DICE by placing a small piece on my board's SB chip just to see if it would make a difference in results and it make a squealing noise, complete with doing a jig while subliming but it did lower temps some at least while it lasted.
It was like watching one of those really old electric football game setups sold years ago that makes the players move via vibration and the players literally go everywhere - That's what the DICE piece did and had to keep it on the chip while it did it's thing. rolleyes.gif
