Badbonji....

You haven't even asked what I'm bringing yet?

I've got my air cooler and I'm bringing down a full water cooling kit so there's no need. If I can arrange something maybe have some DICE to work with. Depends if I can get more practice in handling the stuff...

PS. Also can we get a list with who's competing for who? Even I'm getting confused now!

Oh okay, I didn't see a reply on the group email that was sent by Andrew so didn't think you were bringing any extra cooling. But that sounds good :D I have some coolant if you want me to bring it, just some distilled water I have laying around. What components are in this loop? Money has been tight at uni, I wanted to get a LN2 pot! Looking forward to benching with you next week   ;D

It's only one week left, be patient :), you will meet and know them for sure.

From some teams / companies we have confirmation but without personal details. Any special team(s) you are interested in?

I wouldnt assume too much if i were you buddy, last year im given to understand benchtech lost to guy cooling with AIR!!

Anyway below are some pics of this DICE POT

when i opened the package only to find the kit was in an old coffee maker machine box!

However its the kit that matters



all the armaflex foam encluded



a blatant bit of advertising here:p




The pot itself!





The whole is for the temperature probe




To give a sense of scale a copper CPU block namely the water cool heatkiller 3.0 (copper version) has been added
