Few tips:
1) Get the pellets and crush the dice into powder before adding to pot
2) Use acetone, methanol, everclear or similar for the liquid, should be 90%+. FYI methanol is about 3 bucks a jug at home depot.
3) Experiment with different levels of dice, dont just fill up to the top.
4) Pack the dice down often to avoid air pockets
5) Get a digital thermometer, UEI or Fluke or similar, and install a temp probe about 1mm above cpu connect point.
6) Have good ventilation in your benching room. Dice omits tons of c02 and can be dangerous if you are somewhere with no air flow.

ps - Just noticed you are on team ocx, I thought I knew that name from somewhere. :)
Good tips yeah team ocx

ps.maybe you know where i can buy this thermometr UEI or Fluke ?
