I have been interested in getting into extreme cooling for a while now and finally decided, maybe it was time I started really getting the information i need. My main questions are:

Should I start with DICE first or is getting right into LN2 not as challenging as it seems?

What are the bare essentials I will need to get started, hardware wise?

Should I look into some kind of test bench?

Was honestly considering starting off with Haswell but that seems a bit pricey for the first go around, considering i have to buy a lot of stuff just to get started. So, what should I start off with first? CPU and mobo suggestions would be appreciated.

Should I or do i need a GPU? Or is that something to graduate up to?

If i think of more questions I will ask them, I think that's it for now though.
