It seems you all are right.
Its not water, its whatever "duster" is. Clouroflourocarbons mostly I think. Sorry for the confusion. Thank you to those who called me stupid before giving an explanation. And also thank you to all those who liked my experiment.
So apart from it being stupid, it actually did cool the pot fast than dry ice alone, though I am not sure if people want to eat through duster ($12 a can on avg I've found).
Anyways the poor card **** itself last night. Its still under full return policy from microcenter. Which it doesn't matter, got all my new parts now anyways!

|xxbassplayerxx||Nice setup you have there! As others mentioned, it's not CO2 but standard water. Regardless, experiments like this are always awesome.|

|frogger4||Interesting! One way to find out if it is just liquid water or not is to simply stick a temperature probe in there and measure it.|

Try it without dry ice, turn your duster upside down and spray it,

|Schmuckley||What Hobiecat said is how it is..I'm guessing the liquid is water.I'm not gonna say it|

My guess is that the air that is coming out of the duster is condensing and you are seeing a puddle of water.

|Halo_003||DICE doesn't melt though. If it's giving you a puddle it's not pure CO2, or did I miss something in chemistry? CO2 doesn't have a liquid phase so far as I know.|
