AMD are usually much better with coldbugs (generally there aren't any coldbugs) & are fun for full pot benching. DICE is a cheaper way to start, just need a picnic cooler instead of a dewar to get a taste of subzero.
Watch the 990fxa-ud5, rev. 1.0 with F6 bios can be a cpu killer. Clear cmos is actually a cpu self destruct button.

ahhhh, yeah i think DICE will be the way to go for starters. i know where to get DICE here but havernt found a source yet for Ln2 close to me.

so what about the board being rev 3 with a UEFI BIOS?

Hopefully better than the rev 1 with earlier bios. That board cost me my 7.2Ghz 955 be, & then a 1090t. Took me 2 cpus to figure out not to press the start button after clearing the cmos.

I have a UD5 Rev 1.1 and not been a problem, cleared CMOS without killing anything (although I did say a little prayer when I pushed the button) Clocks pretty good too, but this version doesn't have the UEFI so can't comment on that.

I am planning on buy a pot withing the next month. I don't have the money to buy Marksman. What second pots do you guys recommend? Also what pots should I avoid?

Great guide bassplayer.

I just recently joined the hwbot team and I don't like the submission I have been entering on water! Time to step it up a little bit.

Sometimes you can get lucky and a pot will show up on ebay, or marketplaces on different forums. Can't give much feedback on what's better and worse I've only ever used kingpin's gemini

To me this is the WORST way to cool a PC Its seems from what I know, that you loose almost all functionality. meaning NOT the ability to use the computer but the practicality, how long can you run like this, can you wake up turn on your computer and not fry it with the clocks you run at??

I like to be able to move my computer when ever needed (not that i do that a lot,) to disconnect or open or what ever, not having to constantly monitor things like LN2 levels, and having to CONSTANTLY refil it, how costly is LN2? how can you store enough without it evaporating / boiling away, unless you have a pressurized chamber to keep it a liquid it seems that you cant keep a whole lot laying around, and this isn't a way to always be able to use the computer, more of an experimentation method of cooling.

To me, if you cannot use the computer without ALWAYS monitoring something, its not efficient, and a waste. I say use refrigerated cooling, in fact there is cooling like that that can go near 250 below zero more than you will ever need, and being as Ln2 only hits 77°K; (−321 °F, −196 °C) I prefer the longevity of refrigerated cooling. aside from power requirements, it seems sustainability is what I look for in cooling.


enlighten me if I am way off on how LN2 Computer cooling works.


P.S. im not bashing it, it is cool, just saying that I prefer sustainability.

You're just misunderstanding it. I don't do this with my 24/7 system... I have separate chips and boards for this stuff.

Basically, we're drag racing computers. You cool everything down, raise clocks and voltages, and run benchmarks to get the highest scores possible. Once you've done that, the session is over. Then you submit your scores to be ranked against others.
