    Cleaning your ln2 pot ( the easy but non green way )

    All right so if you have a high quality ln2 pot made with 99.9% ofc copper and you retire for 7 years....your pot is neglected and corrodes badly.

    In my case my pot is designed to hit the lowest temps possible. It is not tuned to maintain temps of a coldbug cpu. That would require a completely different design with more mass. You can get away with less mass with 99.9 ofc as it is denser...at a significantly higher cost...

    That said in order for it to be the most effective it needs to be clean.

    Long story short here is the simple cleaning method.

    Toss a cooking pot on your stove. Remove all insulation off your ln2 evaporator. Buy some " cleaning vinegar" acidity is 6%. Fill evap to the top of copper level. Boil vinegar in evap. Do not breathe in fumes.

    End result.

    I have a handful of chips to explore on ln2. Hopefully one is capable of 5.4-5.5 in 32m Pi and maybe has a decent imc when cold.
