I'm going kinda backwards here, but I took apart one of my Dice pots and salvaged a nice 4" piece of brass 2" handrail. I think it would make a nice chipset pot.
My question is = If I where to make a mini dice pot, would a flat copper base with no channels or holes for dissipation be ok? I think anything super thick may be more than needed for generally low tdp chipsets. what do you think?

Gotcha 1" thick. The base for the one taken apart is at least 1" thick and in the center of an aluminum race driver I have a copper slug pressed in the hole I drilled out approximately 3/4" in diameter. It seemed to do better with LN2. I sent that Dice pot to Jason. He never did send it back like he said he was gonna. Any how, the top half was sectioned with that 4" tall brass piece. I'm just trying to think of something to do with it while it's too short to make a proper Cpu pot.
I know this is a old post but one thing I always did with die pots that I only seen one other person do was to place a X pattered piece of copper in the pot. I found that the added mass really got the pot cold, but also made for a lot of condensation and ate thought dice at a faster rate.
Overkill. Dice not necessary on chipset. Water is more than enough.
a water block next to a pot seems like a bad idea... wouldn't just a big o'l passive heat sink and fan do fine? Bleh what would l know, I never Diced anything newer then a P4 so chip set heat was never much of a problem.

zila1: Strange. I hear my dad's voice all of the time. Like he's watching over me. Sometimes I hear that strong voice of his calling me. And I hear his laughter. It sounds so real. Like he's standing right next to me.

zila1: I can't wait to see him again. One day God willing when I finally leave this place I will see my Dad, my hero again.

zila1: My Dad was all over Europe during WWII. Served under General Patton. My Dad kicked some ass. It's no wonder he was always such a tough bastard and could drink anyone under the table. I miss my Dad.

zila1: I am feeling very emotional tonight. It took a year but I finally received a copy of my Dad's military discharge papers. I feel very proud of him and I also miss him very much. On the 21st will be a year since I lost my Dad.

ShrimpBrime: Thanks, I appreciate that! I only left because the pay scale was too low. They considered me as a Tech 2 last time. Which I'm beyond that and they know it. Diesel Tech and welding fabrication is my specialties.

ShrimpBrime: Actually going back to a previous employer. I left on good terms, the pay was too low. This time, they are making up for it.
