GALAX Starts Selling OC Lab Edition GPU Pot for Extreme LN2 Overclocking

GALAX has announced availability of their OC Lab Edition GPU Pot, a non-plant-based solution for users to cool their graphics cards with. The OC Lab Edition GPU Pot is fully made of 99.9% purity copper, which allows it to withstand up to -196 ºC. Not many more details are available for now, except pricing, and it's something to definitely not smile about: the OC Lab Edition GPU Pot will cost users $229.99.

GALAX, however, being a customer-friendly brand, are suggesting users put down an order for three of these OC Lab Edition GPU Pot alongside three of their own Galax HOF OC Lab WC cards, which go for $1,799... netting you a $600 discount on the pots. So, yeah. There's that. If you want it.

"non-plant-based solution"

After some thought, which was difficult considering the level of WAT in my mind, I'm going to assume this either means that rather than being produced by a factory (a word which the word plant can be synonymous to), these are custom made, by hand, by some dude in some shop somewhere... or this quote is a joke...

I don't see $230 as a bad price for this, though. It's clearly a very niche product, and I would imagine anyone with access to frigging liquid nitrogen for personal use could spare that kind of cash.

Slightly related question... when you use liquid nitrogen, do you still use thermal paste between the chip and the pot?

Absolutely :)

Interesting. I thought maybe the extremely cold temperature of liquid nitrogen would render thermal paste unnecessary. I'd appreciate a little write-up on such extreme cooling and overclocking methods. It would make an interesting read.

Regardless of how cold you go, you still need a good thermal transfer. Run of the mill thermal pastes don't do well at those temperatures and will crack (giving terrible thermal transfer and meaning you need to warm up, reseat the pot and start again), so you'll need something such as Vince's KPx, Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, Arctic Ceremique (giving away my age here, hahaha) or similar.

Of course not, you use frozen kool-aid pops instead :)

Exactly stuff like Kryonaught touts itself to be perfectly suitable to this kind of application. Just looking at my packaging for it, it’s rated -200/+350C now I haven’t seen the “numbers” for my normal go to MX-4 but doubt it’s close.

Really? No other comments about the non-plant-based solution? You're slacking, TPU!
