How does one go about nitrogen cooling?
What are the benefits?
Where can I get the tools/parts I need to do it?
What are the advantages, pros or cons over Liquid Cooling,Water Cooling, Custom Loop Configs?
Whats the price diff. between all the cooling options above and subzero cooling?

If any body can shed some light on these questions, it will greatly appreciate it.

Probably the biggest thing you need to know is that LN2 and DICE cooling are not really "cooling solutions". They are simply short term (several hours) cooling in order to run benchmarks at the absolute maximum speed because you can keep your temperatures very low, which allows higher than normal voltages to be run safely.
