Ok so I finished making the mount and I added a PVC pipe into the base to act as a funnel/reservoir for dice and acetone.
People have been telling me that center poles give you better load temp, I did a little research and it seems to be because when the processor heats up there is just not enough surface area on a normal thin base and a center pole should improve load temps. You guys told me I should ad copper bb's which would act like a center pole and improve load temps, I was going to do that but then I thought of something else.
Can I just ad one of these in the middle of the base to act as a center pole.
Seems that it would do very close if not as good as a true center pole and would help improve load temps.

- on simple pot with 12 mm thick, flat base - idle -70C, full load -60C (dice)
- on this pot https://www.overclock.net/dry-ice-liq...ml#post5097345 (with center pole) - idle -67C, full load -65C
Thinner base gives better temps, but it's useless, because it doesn't hold load properly (3d mark 2006, wprime 1024m, pcmark 2005 especially). In PCMark 2005 max clock rose from 4.3GHz to 4.57GHz (this cpu has terrible fsb wall).

What do you mean "Not as strong"? and "it pulls water from the air"?
Do you mean that rubbing alcohol attracts more water/faster than acetone?

it would have to be pure and the more you keep it in open atmosphere the less pure it becomes since it pulls water from the air. I would just use acetone, as it's not as strong as rubbing alcohol. At least to me that is.

How does a thick base give better temps? I thought that the less material that interferes with the heat transfer the better. People that remove the IHS on there processors have less material in between the cooler and the actual CPU and this improves temps.

i used bb's in my pot didnt solder them but tht would prolly h elp even more. it brought my temps down about 10 degrees if i remember correctly. i would definately recomend throwing some in if you have a thin base
