AM2 DICE/LN2 pot?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone have a source on a pot for socket AM2/AM2+/AM3 CPU's? I just started building a 1090T rig last week, and am looking to throw this CPU under the bus for some suicide runs.

Also, what are peoples experiences with overclocking the brisbane core? I'm pretty sure this board is rubbish for OC'ing, the max I've been able to boot in to windows at has been 3436. I'd like to get something higher.

Just sold one. BUT, if you can get a hold of Duniek I think he makes them.

I'd considered CNC'ing one from copper, as well as a few other ideas using various metals and composites as outer walls, and keeping the copper base. My only concern with using two different metals such as aluminum and copper was the "blow out" affect that you get when the two corrode together. I don't want anything leaking out (condensation, etc) on to the board on the inside of the insulation.

I'll see if I can find Duniek's profile on here and shoot them a message. Hopefully they could provide some insight as to what's going to work best.

Well my pot is a mixture of copper and aluminum and trust me, there is not leakage from the seam nor will there ever be. The way to put them together though is to heat them and then use a 2ton (or greater) press and then when it cools, its on there forever. Besides, there is really no corrosion at all. i bought my pot second hand (know the maker) and in total its probably about 2-3 years old and not 1 tiny hint of corrosion.

Besides, there is really no corrosion at all. i bought my pot second hand (know the maker) and in total its probably about 2-3 years old and not 1 tiny hint of corrosion.
That was the idea that I had. I planned to use a 4.5" diameter billet 7.25" long, throw it on my lathe and machine a step .375" high, and 3" in diameter. Then machining a 1.375" hole with a depth of .600". Flip it and machine the inside to a diameter of 4.30" at a depth of 6.750. From there I had thought about a few other ways of making the insert. Either making it as a "plug" that could simply be pressed in from the bottom, or making it it to fit inside the pot, with a piece that would fit inside the hole on the bottom. Pretty much a tray inside of it.

I guess as long as it was fitted tightly there wouldn't be any room for moister to get trapped between the two metals. Hopefully that would allow me to get it dry enough after every run to make sure it wasn't going to corrode. From my experience, placing two metals together isn't much of a good idea. Something between copper and aluminum causes this kind of odd "blow out" effect when the copper begins to corrode.

Another idea was making the two pieces, and then poly coating the inside to keep moisture off the metal, but I'm not sure how that would affect the temperatures.
