Well here is the mock-up of the base section. I will be using aluminum for the stock to comprise the base section and riser.
That is the bottom and the riser, the unit will screw into a compressed gas cylinder [which will have the bottom removed] which will serve as the container for the LN2/DICE.
A few things I am sota fuzzy on here though..
- What is going to make a larger difference for temp controll.. the base thickness or the depth/amount of liquid? I have been doing a lot of research on these pots..it seems that overall thickness is the largest factor for tight temp control...but not to sure.
I plan on keeping a 3/4" thickness to the base, internally while a 1"-1 1/2" thickness on the outside..I figure with a hollow riser that has contact directly to the thinest part of the base..will allow for lowest possible temps. While the inside of the container will actually sit on the base section itself..it will allow for a secondary level of LN2 contact [chilling just the very top of the base section and the outside of the riser] that should be good for keeping the cold bug at bay.
I might have the rest of the week off after tomorrow, I will see if I can get some pics of the rest of the parts I have so far.
*Forgot.. I have plans on benching a few cpu's.. got a fully mod's P5B-dlx I done-up for the occasion.. and am considering using my sig'd mobo as well. Here is the planned lineup so far..its going to be a mini-vacation when the pot is finished.. LOL: Q6600, E6700, E2180, E1200 [celly me thinks] and possibly a X3350 and my friends QX9650
