that all depends on the heat dump from your loop/components that your cooling... but generally, if you have about 3lbs of DICE you should be able to bench for around 2-3hrs under max -temps. You will always loose a bit of DICE when you first 'pull down' your temps..but once your cold, it takes very little energy to keep the chiller cold.

 

a 6-8lb block would allow me to run max -temps for about 6hrs on CPU and GPU

Well, you can doing something like I did with a plastic 775 backplate...assuming your going to use 775 boards. Here is one for 80 cents: EBAY LINK You would just need to carve out a 2" hole, I used an exacto. However, if you want to make things a bit more complicated, you should use a strong piece of metal. I am currently looking for a good universal bracket that I can modify to my needs...ill keep you updated if I find something that will work well.

I have the dimas tech pot, but 1.0 version I bought it used. Its good on dice, my temps under load were like -65 to -70 idle. Used it three times on dice then i moved to ln2. I dont have any other pot to compare it too, it is usable but i think the diameter is too small for ln2 becouse inside the surface is too small and the nitrogen evaporates and go to nothing.
But it holds the temps well and am happy with it, look my subs on hwbot.

Some great info in here, I'm also interested in some more experimental cooling options.
Currently reading up on specfic capabilitites of materials regarding thermal diffusivity and diffusion (great resource here: http://www.linseis.com/en/our-products/thermal-diffusivity-thermal-conductivity/).

Not sure about the Dimas tech pot however...
