So my buddy and me are in the process of designing a sub $200 Dice/LN2 cooling pot the price would include shipping. Were trying to make getting into extreme cooling alittle more affordable as currently it costs $300+ to get a pot shipped to you.

Now obviously it wouldn't be on par with something like the Kingpin F1 pots but we are shooting for something along the lines of the Koolance pots possibly a little better performance.

We are in the process of hammering out the details of our first Engineering sample pot and trying to see if anyone else would be interested in this type of POT

There is definitely a big market for that. I tried to find a source locally but my best price for a copper/aluminum pot was $400 if I bought a minimum of 3. mad.gif

I'll be interested to see what you guys come up with, but I don't think I *need* another pot.

Ya i understand that however in the current market the best you can do is $300. That is alot of money for someone who is just testing the waters or who also still has to buy gear to bench. Im hoping to get something together for entry level users while still retaining decient performance

oh and you always need another pot tongue.gif

MY initial estimates including shipping would only apply to the US48 however I am working on a way to keep the international costs down so I can ship anywhere in the world with out huge pricing markups.

Part of the problem is once you cross the 4lb threshold for USPS the cost of shipping international almost doubles I am working on that though thumb.gif

I kinda figured that much but couldn't tell where you were located. I could be your Canadian distributor. tongue.gif

I wish you luck thumb.gif But under $200 will be very hard using copper with out performance being hit pretty hard.

Ya that is what I am currently working on is trying to figure out the optmial amount of copper to put into the pot with out breaking my budget. Im looking at a machined 3in copper slug for the base and an aluminum top but im unsure if the mass will be there

If you cut corners to cut costs, it might put you (or a buyer) off benching.... I think some people don't quite get that. Sure, a piece of metal can be cheap, but it will completely change how an OC session feels and how much fun you get out of it. It will also affect how long your dice or LN2 lasts. A good pot will pay for itself in LN2 saved compared to a bad one. There is NO exaggeration there.
You don't buy a pot, you INVEST in one
smile.gif
I appreciate that a $300 outlay is a lot to ask, but buying a good pot from the start, means that it's possible that you'll NEVER need to buy another. Pot design has come SO FAR in the last 10 years and realistically, there's a limit to how much more heat/power consumption a CPU can produce in the future.
Heh....$300 becomes absolutely nothing once someone is addicted to cold. Seriously tongue.gif
But.... design something anyway! Try something smile.gif Even if it takes a few prototypes, the feeling of satisfaction will be worth it

While that is somewhat true I have to disagree. I started with a small $90 copper pot and some dice and I had a blast. While I would have loved to have a F1 it didnt take away from my benching. I look at it like having a great motherboard sure we would all have a better experience with a $300 board but the $200 boards do just fine for a majority of people. I will give you $300 is nothing once you get started but it really depends on how much you want to get into it

Ok, a cheap pot can be fun with a chip that doesn't kick out much heat. smile.gif
