Hey everyone, firstly i'd like to introduce myself. I'm new to these forums but not overclocking. There's no such thing as too fast. Started waaay back when, went from air to water to a vapo finally. Anyway, due to some interesting circumstances my computer is destroyed and i've got my insurance company paying for a new one. The figure they ended up settling is they will reinburse me somewhere in the neighborhood of $4500. So, i've got a good wad of cash to blow and the MyGueyver in my is itching to do something fun with it.
Anyway, the idea I thought about was doing some submersion cooling on an SMP + SLI system in a few gallons of flourinert Fc-72, but what would be the point of that if I couldn't cool the hell out of it for some overclocking. I've been reading about different things people have done with mineral oil and flourinert ect... Dry ice or Ln2 is too transient for me, so I was thinking waterchill. However, I thought that instead of chilling water and pumping it in why don't I just chill the flourinert directly? The pour point of fc-72 flourinert is -90C so I don't see a problem with it getting frozen, so i'm wondering what experience or ideas people might have on the subject. What kinda temps could I achieve putting the evap directly into the flourinert? I'm guessing i'd need some way to circulate the flourinert so that no hot spots develop.
Anyway, once I get a better idea of precisely what i'll be doing i'm going to build this sucker, with updates in this thread. Any help from some people experienced with waterchill or anything else helpful please lend me a hand.
