I want to get into sub ambient cooling, but I'm on a tight budget.<br><br>
Right now, I want to try dry ice cooling, but I have trouble finding a cheap pot (<$200).<br><br>
Do you know anyone making really cheap pots, or selling any used ones for under $200?<br><br>
Thanks in advance <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Not sure if he still has it but a user on KPC has a pot for sale. 100+shipping<br>

Otherwise wait for people that are going to the new marksman and sell their pots<br><br>
Capwn also had one for sale in the marketplace. Not sure if he sold it or not.

Thanks VIPER<br><br>
Do you think I can make this myself? It will cost under $100.<br><br>
I'm not sure how to wield though, never done it before.<br>
Could I super glue it together and use foam on the connections?<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1634041/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1634041" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1634041/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 445px"></a>

Honestly I have no idea. Superglue would probably crack under subzero so you would probably want/need to braze it together. Which may crack under subzero also. Not sure as i've never tried anything like it but you can grab a mapp torch and some solder for fairly cheap.

It would have to be brazed or pressed. There is no other way to really keep a good seal.

Not being sold at the moment, expensive but yes it works well for LN2 and DICE.
