Hello,

I'm wondering what the most important features of a CPU pot are for you (DICE or LN2)?

Hole for temperature probe?
At least a certain height?
A specific mounting mechanism?

Most important is the size, the thickness and internal shape of the base.
That's where the heat transfer takes place!

Right! I'm pretty interested in the way the shape of the base impacts cooling performance. Have you seen a specific shape that worked particularly well?

Ya know, there are a lot of designs online. And no, other than having done a lot of research I don't currently have a pot.

The problem is that you have to spend a lot of time reading about the user's success or disappointments.

And Dice pots differ from LN2 pots.

You'll have a lot more luck looking on ExtremeSystems.
