Hopefully I can get the kitchen and dining room floors done this weekend so I can start overclocking again. *crosses fingers*
In the meantime, I got a Celeron 356 in the mail ($11 shipped
) and had an idea to run by you guys.
CL3P20's toilet paper roll NB DICE pot got me to thinking.......
What about greasing up around the CPU with dielectric and putting an open (both ends) tube over the CPU with a good grease seal? Instead of a LN2 pot, have a "LN2 tube" so that the liquid is in direct contact with the IHS.
1) Tricky to get the grease seal to stay fluid tight. Probably not feasible long term (hours). But I only want to try it for validations anyway.
2) Cold bug, cold bug, cold bug. Could only do it with Cedar Mills (or AMD chips.....).
3) Cold boot problems. How do you even start the rig when you're either without a heatsink at all or at -196? I think I could get it to work with careful initial titration, but maybe not.
Just thinking out loud.....I might test the concept on my crappy Celly 347. If it works at all the next step might be to do a reverse
lap job (increase surface area) on an IHS. Edited by Patch - 11/13/09 at 2:12pm
