Already got some parts like a psu , several cpus i could do it on, ( athlon x4 640,pentium 4 520, 1156 i5's and possibly some older 1155 i5's and various other 775 chips. What would be the cheapest way for me to start extreme cooling over clocking for ****s and giggles. I got ddr3 and ddr2, a psu, What i dont have:a motherbaord ,all the pots and stuff, case(possibly cutting up an old one and mounting it to a board or something as a bench) I have a hard drive i can use allong with sata cables. I'm not trying to set records(yet) but I wanna try my luck at getting some good results on the cheap, any suggestions, btw dice is easiest for me to get, have a kroger up the road and ln2 is harder to get than dice because of my age. Thanks friends smile.gif

The cheapest extreme cooling solution is a contradiction in terms :D

Once you start, it draw you in.

however 240mm of rad per cpu/GPU is a good rule to start.

Homemade DICE pot + dry ice.

You'll end up making a few worthless ones before you figure out what you're doing, but it's part of the fun.

I'd get the cheapest pot I could find if you aren't up to building one and it's your first time going sub-ambient. You can blow a few months paychecks easily in this hobby redface.gif

The Dimastech looks like the old kingpin Dragon Evo pots, so I'd assume it does pretty decent. Prices aren't too bad either.

build yourself a cheap chiller using a D5 pump, 1/2" tubing, CPU block and any 120*2 rad.. put rad in an empty ice chest ... add some acetone... dump in your DICE.. enjoy -70c for hours.
