Hey guys, I've been hearing alot of talk in recent times about this "Nitrogen Cooling" business, and I am very curious...

How does one go about nitrogen cooling?
What are the benefits?
Where can I get the tools/parts I need to do it?
What are the advantages, pros or cons over Liquid Cooling,Water Cooling, Custom Loop Configs?
Whats the price diff. between all the cooling options above and subzero cooling?

If any body can shed some light on these questions, it will greatly appreciate it.

1) Buy a pot, dewar, thermocouple, insulation and what ever else you may need.
2) Extreme cold temps for extreme overclocking
3) For the Pot you can either get one of the OCN pots, kingpin pots, or EK pots. I would wait for the OCN pots because a lot of us will be selling our KPC pots for reasonable prices.
Dewar ebay, closing labs, whole sales or rent one from airgas/praxair but you will need a trailer
Thermocouple ebay or amazon
4) LN2 is not a long term solution
5) LN2 is about $600 to get into between your thermocouple, dewar and cpu pot. That is if you find really good prices. But LN2 is about $1.50-3 per liter depending on where you get it and how much you get at a time. 30L of LN2 lasted me about 8 hours on CPU only

Probably the biggest thing you need to know is that LN2 and DICE cooling are not really "cooling solutions". They are simply short term (several hours) cooling in order to run benchmarks at the absolute maximum speed because you can keep your temperatures very low, which allows higher than normal voltages to be run safely.

+1.

The best, most practical cooling to use for everyday system useage is a H2O system. These are rather cheap, not hard to setup and offer better cooling than typical aircooling does.
There are some air coolers that work great but in the overall a watercooled system runs cooler and you don't have the temp swings air alone has. Getting a setup such as this for example ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106189 ) is a good way to go. There are better setups than this you could get or maybe do a custom build like I have, that is the CPU block, pump and the like are purchased separately and setup the way you want it instead of a setup that's complete and ready to go in a single package.

I'm sure the guys here can give some good suggestions in this area if you decide to go with one of these H2O setups along with advice on how to go about getting it up and running.

BTW you can ask questions in the water cooling part of the forum and browse thorugh that section to learn more about it.
