    glad it's okay:) Insulating could be alot of work, is it worth the effort for part time cooling? Gonna have to come up with a temperary measure. maybe some wicking fabric and hang it cpu down?

    it's not that hard for what i've done so far. when you start going into phase, DICE, and LN2 you need to do a lot more prep work though.

    someone should do an insulating guide, i planned going liquid but this makes it more interesting.:)

    it wouldn't be too hard to insulate the lines themselves - but trying to insulate the actual block would be a bit of a chore.

    an idea - take two long spare pieces of rubber hose and place them over the in/outlets, take a piece of duct tape or similar and place over a clean mating surface so it only covers the flat surface itself, trim with a razer. lower the block into a small bucket or cup that's been filled with rubber cement for a minute or two, pull out and let dry thoroughly - remove the tape from the mating surface, trim any excess rubber cement off with a razer, clean the surface to remove any left over glue from the tape - remove the hose off the in/outlets, and that should be quite well insulated.

    perhaps after drying, you could even dunk for a second coat.


    not sure how well it'll work, but it might be worth the experiment ;)

    yeah, I was thinking liquid electrical tape. What about the cpu, would it too not build up condensation? The lower the temp the farther out the mb would have to be managed aswell would it not?

    well, for really extreme setups, I think the rubber cement idea would work as well - I know in the automotive feild, onboard computer PCBs are dipped before placed into sealed housings - although, I've taken some apart before and found moisture inside.

    im working on scoring a free window AC and a few other things. you'd be surprised how much stuff costs these days. 15ft of 1/2" coper tubing is $24 now. WOW! that's a lot.
