|ira-k||Yeah I bet Cl is right, I fill my pot with ice then just add 1/2-1 shot glass of acetone to it.|

|87dtna||Thanks! Plus, I found when using less acetone not as much gargles out when the DICE is first introduced!|

Only use ~ 1/2" of acetone in the bottom of your POT... otherwise your just burning through DICE at record speed.... You want enough liquid to cover the entire internal base +a little bit more... but thats it, the more liquid, the harder it will be to keep it at a constant temp...requiring more DICE for the same CPU temp...
Took me a little while to get the hang of how much DICE/Acetone to use...but once you have got it figured out, your temps will improve, and your DICE will last much longer

I will invest in a thermometer with a type K thermocouple then.
Thanks guys. Will give rep to those who were actually helpful!

|voklskier4452||as ncspec said a good digital thermometer with a ktype probe will be the best way to measure temps. Depending on the brand you go with it could either be very cheap or very expensive. Personally i went with the middle ground and picked up a UEI DT301 single input digital thermometer|

|nicko42004200||yea the sensor will be inacurate below 0, a temp gum or a good wafer semsor calibrated under 0 is the only way i no of to get accurate temps below 0|

|NCspecV81||remember to keep the pot stirred. However, once you go below 0 most software/cpu registers won't read it correctly and it will be dependent upon the cpu or the board where your temps will bottom out. Use a digital thermometer on the base of the pot for a better reflection of your actual temperatures.|

|kow_ciller||Are you using pellets or are you smashing it up into almost powder-like?|

in the bios it says -25c for some reason
|03-30-2010 12:35 PM|
possibly your mobo sensor...
have you tried using an actual temp gun?
