Seems legit.

Try it without dry ice, turn your duster upside down and spray it,

Interesting! One way to find out if it is just liquid water or not is to simply stick a temperature probe in there and measure it.

Nice setup you have there! As others mentioned, it's not CO2 but standard water. Regardless, experiments like this are always awesome.

Water would freeze. What you are seeing is fluorocarbons being released by the can.

I think you should duct a leaf blower onto your air cooler...wait till liek 2am and fire it up for some hardcore OC action ..really piss of the neighbors.. and see if you can F5 your CPU-Z before the cops show up!!

Do the opposite of what this guy just said if you want the best results you can get

It seems you all are right.

Its not water, its whatever "duster" is. Clouroflourocarbons mostly I think. Sorry for the confusion. Thank you to those who called me stupid before giving an explanation. And also thank you to all those who liked my experiment.
So apart from it being stupid, it actually did cool the pot fast than dry ice alone, though I am not sure if people want to eat through duster ($12 a can on avg I've found).

Anyways the poor card **** itself last night. Its still under full return policy from microcenter. Which it doesn't matter, got all my new parts now anyways!
