Developed by overclockers ShaggySVK, the Volcano supports not only liquid nitrogen, but a combination of liquid nitrogen (LN2) and liquid helium cooling. The pot itself features a 83.1mm matte black finished vessel and a full copper core on the bottom. It supports almost all CPU sockets from Intel and AMD, from AM2 to AM5, from LGA 775 to LGA 20xx sockets on Intel’s HEDT chips. I don’t have all the dimensions of the pot itself, but it’s about 100mm or 120mm high tower cooler height.

To maximize effective cooling, the copper core has numerous holes and dimples to allow the coolant to saturate. These holes
Copper core except for the bottom which has a flat surface to maximize contact with the CPU. Again, the pot can cool both liquid nitrogen and liquid helium at the same time.
Liquid helium is a more aggressive cooling solution compared to liquid nitrogen, producing lower temperatures due to its extreme thermal properties. Used correctly in overclocking applications, it can lower CPU temperatures even further than liquid nitrogen alone is capable of.
This is how the Raptor Lake world record was broken. Asus’ overclocker team used a combination of liquid nitrogen and liquid helium to push the 13900K to his 9GHz. Additionally, one of the overclockers that helped break the record says that Raptor Lake is one of the most stable chips he’s seen under liquid helium.
When the Volcano becomes available for purchase, it will come as a bundle with various accessories such as mounting brackets, screws, springs, washers, sandpaper, and more.
