buildzoid Posted May 8, 2016 Share Posted May 8, 2016 So I had an idea. I'll try make an LN2 pot for as little as possible. I know some other guys have made pots from stock GPU heat sinks. However as far as I can tell all of these were made by attaching metal tubing and such to the heatsinks to contain the LN2. However I have no idea how to metal work and so I decided too just try seal up a refrence HD 4870 heatsink with some electrical tape. I then threw a couple hundred ml of LN2 in it. I didn't see any LN2 escaping and most of the tape held on just fine. It did however make a ton of cracking sounds as it cooled down. I'm hoping that that was just the tape shrinking and not the heatsink fins disconnecting from the copper base. Here's what it looked like frozen: It's a nightmare to pour into right now but I plan to funnel it more so I spill less LN2 if this monstrosity works. Right now I'm waiting for it to defrost and dry. After that I will check the state of all the tape and if it seems OK I'll try run my HD 4870 on LN2. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
