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!

CL3P20 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

Yeah thats what I'm finding out.

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

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

I don't have one...

in the bios it says -25c for some reason
