UPDATE: TEMPS



Not as good as i was hoping.....But i did not let it freeze all the way...gonna put it back in and try again in a few hours.

Since you dont care about the rad at all an idea would be to add salt to the water surrounding the rad. Adding solutes lower the freezing temp allowing it to get colder than 0C

Try a 10 or 15 percent antifreeze mix in your water in the tub and hard freeze it to 20 degrees farenheit unless you can find a freezer that will go lower. 50-50 mix is good for like 20 below so just don't get too much or it might not freeze well.

Found a graph. Better info.

Just make sure you follow the graph and don't use pure antifreeze in your loop. If you could get a perfect 60 mix in loop and like a 30 percent mix in the tub and hard freeze it would probably make a good run.

here is what the final setup looks like.


I have the tub back in the freezer at the moment. Tomorrow I am gonna put the rad in an ice chest with ice, water, and salt then see what that does. Also gonna reseat the Waterblock with Mx-2 that is supposed to come in tomorrow. Right now it has some crappy thermaltake stuff that I had laying around from a heatsink i bought a while back. Thats prolly another reason temps arent great. OH, If anyone has a swiftech waterblock for sale that is cheap let me know I may be interested. I will do another run probably around 1 or 2 am Eastern US time.......I am a night owl.

I would personally use an alcohol and water slurry, but that is just me.
