Default Re: The line between ambient water and chilled/cold

What sort of fluid would you use for "water" cooling in a siberian winter? Not anything common, I would assume. And aren't heat pipe based coolers bad when the internal fluid is too cold to evaporate?

Depends on the air cooler,ussually most of them at -8 are dead meat. Megahalems can go to -12.
Coolant you find for car radiators -19 degrees rated,add some alcohol in the mix and the rating goes lower.
Or you can just prepare your own with 99.9% alcohol from comerce.
Do you really think this would be a problem ?

I use my tap, that's all. There are guys who run antifreeze with a rad outside with -30 temps. But in my place it rarely gets below -15c so I don't see a point so such complex solutions. -30 outside doesn't mean -30 antifreeze in the system. The heatpipes are a problem. Only some of them work normally at -10 and I suppose none below -20. 7700Cu to the rescue.

So now extreme cooling is about freezing your arse, not chips?

It's too complex. Just buy -40 rated one, $10 for 5L, it's available in every store with car goods. Rated for something like -20 is impossible to find here.

I spent way to much time at my keyboard trying to get the mods to clear away the grey area to no avail, and in the process forgot the pure enjoyment that benching had brought me in the past. The prizes were big $, based on my budget, but the grey area involved in ambient destroyed the enjoyment and brought out a side of me I didn't like. The result of that debacle was a ruined cpu and a very negative attitude, although I did win an MSI hat, keychain, notebook and an open bench table - (open bench table is great, thank you MSI).
I haven't bothered to compete since, other than the Geekbench memory challenge, which was a lot of fun, and the Country Cup in Dec. Maybe I'm just a whiney, sore loser, and clearly need to eat a few more Snickers.
Whatever the case, that was my experience.
After reading this thread, I'd like to remove myself from the Enthusiast class and challenge any of my "class-mates" to move to Apprentice as well. Perhaps there should be a time limit of some sort to stay in Enthusiast.
Anyways, Websmile, or Christian, what is the process to change to Apprentice, and can anyone recommend a budget friendly pot for purchase? It's time for me to learn about cold.
Please excuse my lengthy post.
Great attitude ! If you want to try my EK cpu pot it's yours for as long as you need it !
I know it's not one of the best pots but I used it for most of my cold 4770k results so it "works". I'm talking about my EK SF3D Inflection point pot with Intel 115x mounting base.
Send me pm if interested, no strings attatched

This is an awesome outcome for a rather stupid thread

My first LN2 pot I got for a schnitzel and my second which I still use was traded for a hwbot venom pot

After a grueling day at work (ok, it wasn't that bad), I stumbled upon a beautiful package at my front door, sent to me by that class guy you all know as GtiJason.
Thanks again Jason, found the little goodie package inside along with the EK pot as well. Like Christmas here. Three cheers to you.
