$20 sub-ambient cooling!!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
This weekend I had decided to to some awesome benching for the Gigabyte P55 OC challenge and needed some extreme cooling that didnt break the bank.
I ended up going with the traditional pot of ice water method. I have to say, that it is actually REALLY good for low temps. It kept my i5 750 to 60C LOAD with 1.65v!!!

here are some pics:




yes thats me







heres the results!

IBT STABLE


best Super Pi:


I could have done much better, but my RAM was severely holding me back. I really need some CAS 8 2kMhz!


also, CHECK OUT THOSE TEMPS!!!!!
thanks for looking

Wow, you got it to 4.6ghz with a slush bucket? Thats pretty sweet man. You have just convinced me...I am going to give that a try. I figured it wouldn't do THAT much.

dude its more effective than you think. I could probably have gotten negative Celsius if I had added Salt, but i didnt want to screw up my pump.

Yea, thats pretty sweet super-PI times too! Thanks for the idea...gonna run it when my res comes in and I have my loop together. I am sitting on an XSPC 360, a danger den cpu block, a MCP-655 vario pump and some feser 1/2" ID tubing....jus staring back at me in pile saying "I will cool your system for you so you can go back to 4+ gigz", but don't have the res yet to complete the loop. Waiting on one form Frozen-Q, but hear it'll be worth the wait. Going back to stock clocks SUCKS!!!

That's pretty neat. You just submerge the radiator in the bucket, then?

No rad at all.
it would just add heat because the air was actually warmer than the whole loop, hence sub-ambient.

I just threw my pump into the pot and connected it to my block and just let it drain back into the pot. you need quite a bit of ice BTW. a huge bag maybe 25 pounds only lasted 2 hours
