I'm in the market for my first CPU pot, but frankly there are so many different types, weights, thicknesses and sizes of pots to choose from that I'm a bit confused. It would be for a 3770k and I planned to go with dice first and if I can find myself a dewar, then later on with LN2. I figured it would be best to choose a fully fledged LN2 pot to start with, since I would probably regret it later if I went with a dice pot.

Now, the most ideal situation would be to find a pot from piotres.com, as the shipping and whatnot would be less painless, since he's in Europe. If his selection of pots aren't ideal, then I can turn to Kingpin, but that would mean longer shipping, taxes and the lack of insulation materials, so I'd prefer this as my last resort.

Am I over doing this, lol? Anyway, all feedback will be appreciated.

You should also check out the Fusion 3.1 by der8auer, it looks awesome. I'd go with his or Kingpin's pot personally.

Der8auer pots are great. I second the motion of getting a fusion rev 3.1

Colour of your choice

Free shipping!

Good performance for DICE and LN2 (whereas Kingpin is designed for just LN2 but can be used for DICE)

Cheaper than a Kingpin with shipping.

Both the Venom and the Fusion will come down to about 220€ in total, unless Kingpin's pot gets smacked with VAT and/or import tax.

Now I'm torn between the two. I guess I'll go with the Venom unless someone feels like changing my mind. If it still feels like a good idea in the evening, I'll go for it.

Thanks for the feedback. 1+

The pot goes out today. Any of you guys ordered to Europe from kingpin? What was the shipping time like? It better come by air. There's also no tracking of any description so far, maybe I will get a code or something once it ships?

If Vince used EMS service like he did for me, it took 5 days since i ordered my venom until it arrived. mind you i am a lot closer so i would expect a week or so for you. EMS service comes with tracking but you might have to remind him to give you the number.

Yea, EMS is listed as the default service on his site and I don't really care for tracking as long as it won't take a month to come by ship. Very fast shipping if it really took you under a week. Thanks +1, can't wait for mine.
