Just getting back into computers; pretty much quit playing with them when bulldozer came out due to lack of money. Well I always wanted to get started with dice/ln2, but never did, and now I want to try Back before I remember people pretty commonly recommended the Koolance V2, but it's no longer being made now. I also remember pots popping up frequently on the marketplace, but there's none there now...
Anyways, I want an intro level pot primarily for dice. Can anyone point me to something? Also, definitely willing to buy used, but I can't post a wanted add due to lack of rep :/ Pardon my ridiculous sentence structure, it's 4am.
I personally would go for a Kingpin or a der8auer 3.1 Fusion, they are both great pots. Kingpin does have 3 pot options though which is great so you can pick and choose what pot you need based on the CPU(s) you're using.

what's the public's opinion of this pot. it would be ~€145 shipped. sound like a good deal or should I go for a more "proven" pot like a gemini? It's worth noting that I probably won't be getting into LN2 for some time, as that necessitates a dewar, which is like a minimum of $500. This is going to be a dice pot, primarily for AMD chips, so if I understand correctly, I want a fast pot because AMD chips (with a few exceptions) don't have cb's. Although with dice, cb's wouldn't be an issue anyways.
Just one thing AMD chips love the old like a full pot of Ln2 and dont do too well on DICE. You can always start practicing with DICE tho on AMD until you get your dewar dont know much about that pot tho, a KPC Gemini or a Venom would be nice. i Bought a Venom for 2D benching on sck 775 to begin with with DICE since i have to wait for a dewar myself
I am no where near perfect but I respect others, if I am mistaken in any way please respect me as I am open to your views and reasoning as to why I am wrong.

Someone else here just picked up that same pot a few weeks ago. Can't really say much about it but it seems like it should work fine. Also if you just keep looking you can find a 20-35L dewar for $100-$250. I picked mine up local for $200
