Anyone else doing this? Dry ice seems like the ideal cooling methods. It sublimates away and is non conductive.
Pretty much the best way to get serious cooling.

it's expensive and the cost would be far greater than any performance you could get out of your system unless you could get it free.

Lol, I hope you know that Bonker is putting these ridiculous threads out as jokes.  You shoulda seen his idea to forever leave a fridge with the door open next to your GPU in another thread.

dry ice is actually a common cooling method amongst performance overclockers however. There are pre-made and DIY DICE-pots (dry ice) available and they do give superb performance. However they are probably not cost effective as mentioned, compared to say, running a fan, though it's not really *that* expensive. $1/pound is easy to come by for even a modest customer, and that's a fair amount of dry ice really.

Personally, I do 2 things.  I buy glaciers at bottom-dollar prices, and I buy shit-tons of algae to suck up the carbon dioxide in my room so that heat escapes more easily.

Instead of dry ice you can also use phase change technology to cool you gpu to sub zero temperatures:

Both for CPU but maybe they can build you a GPU version:

This is cheaper than dry ice.  Prepare to have your mind blown:

Vegetable oil turns rancid.  You need to use mineral oil.

This si a valid point. I kept passing out when running my CO2 cooling system, which I put down to CO2. Basically, I just opened the windows and introduced lots of plants in to my room. It is expensive to run hough.
