Heya
after some contemplation since i retired, i have decided to get involed in sub-xero beching as a hobbie. i have looked at some threads and now i am wondering what is or where can i buy a decent pot?

also any advice into getting into this game would be most helpful.

thanks as i look forward to getting into extreme overclocking but must admit it looks a bit scary lol

plan to start around march april thumb.gif

The Kingpin Venom Pot

The package came with a nice amouint of neoprene foam for the mobo as well as tubing that fits the pot nicely even due to its rectangle shape the snug fit looks to be very little sign of gaps the tubing and the pot.






Still waiting on some items i want but soon i will give her a run and join OCN's HWBot team smile.gif

The OCN Marksman is a great all around pot for both Dry Ice and LN2 cooling.  Kingpin cooling also has a F1 pot and a Venom pot that are both very good.

Depends on where you are at really. Ln2 is cheaper for me but then people like Mike get a giant box of dice for a few pennies.

I'm from India. I've always wanted to try out insane frequencies but never had enough cash for watercooling. Here's what i got on air with my chip.

thanks guys, did see the marksman in the stickies. sounds good and build to me anyway looks quality. might be worth the investment to ship one here or shop around here in thailand and see what i can come up with but i am not expecting much so importing a pot will probably be worth it. rather do that than try to make one smile.gif

I'd be in favor of getting a good pot right from the start, it might be a bit costly compared to some of the used/cheaper options but if you continue with benching you'll be wanting a good pot after a while anyway, will end up costing more in the end.

And +1 for the marksman, love mine smile.gif
