which cpu pot to buy for a 4930k? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
I do enjoy the F1 EE, that solid mass is nice and it does hold temps well. If you're going to be benching multiple platforms I do think the F1 EE is the way to go. I'm like Mike I have the older version, not the newer style. The mounting will work on anything you're going to bench so you;re ok there. Awesome to see you guys interested.... I foresee a massive amounts of extreme OC submissions coming from you guys soon.

I also have an F1EE, the older style. It's a real steady freddy with holding temps. I'd agree with XC and Mike that if you're benching multiple platforms the F1EE would make an excellent choice. On a cb chip, you can pour carefully enough to keep temps to within 2-3C of optimum. I also occasionally use dice and the extension on the F1EE allows for a full pot of dice with enough room for acetone in the bottom of the pot.

I went with the f1ee biggrin.gif I'll be using dice this week when they arrive because I can get it for basically free from work. Still trying to get airgas to cut me a deal since I get acetylene and oxygen from them weekly lol.

Im excited to start, I know dice isn't as effective but it's better than water in Florida. It's like 85f here today frown.gif

In theory, dice can get you to -110C, but in my experoence it'll get the cpu to around -85 to -90 and the gpu to -90 to -95 if you have good solid mounts. 2D benches will help you to find the limits of your CPU and then it's a matter of methodically overclocking the gpu(s) until they max out

Good luck with your first runs!

I've found a bit more time actually, not enough to really get building anything, but occasionally on a weekend I'll get a bit of time to plan something.
New plan though, on my way to being a surgeon.

Big congrats!! If you ever get a minute, I'd love to commission you to build a few single stages for me. I have all the parts and gas.

Pm me and lmk. Sorry for the OT posts. NoL and I go back a few years.

All three CPU pots have their benefits, I've owned the F1EE and now a Venom.

I think the F1EE is a fantastic beginner, and all-rounder pot. temps dont swing much, its got proven results and its perfect for dry ice.
So why did I trade to a venom? the main reason is I like the precise response you get from a lower mass pot, that and it looks cool.
I also have a friend very nearby who has an F1EE, so between the two of us, we have the best of both worlds.

This is a great reason as well why the Gemini is a great pot, the two different bases keep you well covered for full pot and cold bugged chips.
The other thing you should take into account, is that any of the pots will work with any chip, as you get more experienced from actually doing it, you'll learn how the pot responds to pouring.

The copper finish F1EE is an older model, Ive seen and compared both in the flesh, not a great deal of difference. the nickel plating does nothing positive or negative for the performance. If you can buy a secondhand pot, buy it for sure.

I have been using the f1ee with my 4930k for a couple weeks now and really love it. Like you said it can be used for full pot benching also. My 4930k doesn't have a cold bug and the f1ee still works great. It is such a massive piece of copper. But I can see what people mean by slow. the temps dont swing much in either direction. I would be really happy with a venom and f1ee
