Hehe.

I hav'nt done more than walk by it in the last few weeks.

Between rebuilding my basement , and finishing my arcade box , (and working to pay for both) I have not had any time...

-----

It doesn't need any 'repairs' per se , but I am cleaning up all the stuff I rushed for the first trial.

The first order of business is to obtain a test sample of anhydrous Ethanol.Might be 200$ tho so I can't afford it right now.....( I might have a cheaper source , but this is unconfirmed.)

Once I have the liquid sorted it's a go for round 2.....I really hope ethanol works , cause we might need ln2 to cool that sucker.(ethanol will do -110C )

-----

The evolution of this project continues.

I registered just to say, I WANT THIS TO WORK!

I have seen guys putting a black putty like past around the base of the CPUS while using N2O to OC.

I will be watching this build i didn't read EVERY post just to see it stop here.

BrainEater,

As I said once before, I (as I'm sure many other HWC members) would be happy to chip in some dough to this monumental project of yours. I should be in Calgary around the 25th of August. Let's at least get together for a brew! Take care.

Wow Farrow2005 , yah snuck that reponse by me.Did'nt see it till now.

Thermal Interface Material is not required when doing submersion cooling . The submersion liquid acts as the TIM when there is a heasink on......We actually ran the e6600 sans heatsink in the first thinktank2 trial , it did'nt boot but the chip was on......awesome localized boiling in the IPA.

Thats one of the goals of this project.NO heatsinks.
