    So I will get the ball rolling here
    What build have you currently got in your CSMNT and what build do you prefer in it?

    I am finding I have a little bit more heat than its supposed to have, Even after trimming the Legs down and re positioning it @Mr_Puffs? I think maby the build I have in it is not the best (24g 7 wrap parallel and 3mm ID at 0.23) vaping at 45 - 55W

    Coil is about 2mm halfway down the Side airflow slots:

    Any advice?

    Hmmm That build shouldn't have any issues. When you mean hot, is it the airflow that is still feeling warm or the actual metal that is getting too hot?

    I currently have some 24 claptoned with 0.4 Tiger coils coming in at I think it was 0.25. They staying quite 20170302_111908.jpg 20170302_111931.jpg cool unless I take a hit every 10 seconds. Then any atty will start to heat up to the touch.

    The csmnt is one of the coolest atties in it's class as confirmed by multiple users who have tested a large range of rda's. The black version has a powder coating which has been thoroughly baked on. Common laws of heat dispersion will tell you that the matt black version will surely stay cooler for longer. I would definitely like to test 2 side by side to accurately know by how much. Nonetheless I am sure that Dietz's Csmnt is still cooler than most other stainless steel attys out there.

    This thread is still new and over time we will learn what are the benefits aswell as the struggles when it comes to the Csmnt RDA. Nothing is perfect but this csmnt in my opinion gets quite close ;-) So don't count it out yet.

    Not at all. As soon as you pop the cap on it creates it's own juice well. Take a look at the pic I posted up top. Below the airflow hole I have 2 ends of wick on top of eachother holding juice and it doesn't disrupt the airflow at all. I will soon enough post a bit more info on how many hits I could get till I started feeling a drop in the amount of vapour and all that. But if I could guess I am getting between 15-20 hits of about 2 seconds at 55 watts as it is in the photos up top before I drip to keep the wick properly juiced.

    I feel so accidentally cool for ending up with a black one due to lack of availability on the SS version

    The nice thing about the Stainless steel version is it comes with the ultem drip tip which for us black cozzy's is an extra R240 or something. But the reason for this is because it balances out the costs of the matt black treatment on ours which isn't too cheap. Believe me when i say that the stainless steel version will get hotter. I mean it is common sense. But it will still do a great job as dispersing heat compared to a lot of competing atties. I have a LP Goon, Doode rda and Apocalypse Gen 2 rda all arriving between today and monday. And will do a comparison between each with similiar builds in and vaping for preset amounts of time. Then we can compare a few different rda's. Yes I know all of them have different functions but it would be interesting to see how they compare nonetheless? :)

    Okay, stress tested it now. I take a hit about every 5 - 10 seconds for a duration of 2-3 seconds. Dual Airflow open full. It does not get Hot, just warm, I can still put the RDA to my Cheek or lips without burning, but its definitely warm. Not unbearable, I can live with it. Just expected it to be a little cooler. Still have to learn it and Im sure I can improve it.

    I am sure its my build or something on it.

    You are my new best friend. I look forward to hearing/reading about all the comparisons... As an advocate for the goon, having worked with a CSMNT clone, I was so impressed by the deck and juice well that I decided to pull the trigger on the black authentic.

    Now that I think of it... sitting on the silver G-priv with black buttons and screen etc... It should still be all matchy matchy right?

    On a stainless steel atty taking 2-3 second hits every 5 seconds and it only gets warm? Hahaha Problem? That is pretty damn good if you would ask me?

    Remember that the matt black acts as an insulator and keeps most of the heat in. With the Stainless steel version all the heat inside will pretty much be felt on the outside aswell as metal conducts heat very well. Unless there is some sort of a black insulating paint layer inside? So for it not to get very hot by chain vaping like that is pretty damn good imo. Granted I haven't tested the SS version but I remember on my Brass 24 Goon that if I vaped like that with a small'ish build that my lips would sometimes get a light sting if it touched the brass at the top.

    The best way to find out how big the difference really is is to compare the two different ones side by side. Maybe in the future we can arrange a little csmnt get together.:CHUKKLING:

    The build deck really is what makes a cosmonaut and what won me over. As for the G Priv I am sure it will still look kick ass. Most of the G Priv is black anyway so it will still be match matchy :p

    I've only put one build in my CSMNT so far, and it was spot on for the DIY I wanted to run in it. I don't make very many spaced coils anymore, but that's what this DIY likes with a dual build at the ohm/power range I wanted to run it at. So I put in dual spaced 24g-3.5mm coils for .3Ω @40W with tight P&R CBV2 wicks in it that hold a lot of joose yet is still leak free.

    Only con I have at all with this RDA so far, and it's a very minor one, is that with my DLH's I eventually get slight joose condensation on the top cap right around the base of the chuff tip. It's more due to my vaping style than a con probably... I take very long lung pulls that create massive flavor rich vapor even with this tame build. I don't bother with puff counts, so no idea how many I get before I drip again (I drip when it starts to drop off).

    I didn't make any pictures of the build, I rarely do, but did of the Minikin VGOD/CSMNT w/Ultem Chuff tip setup. It is trading off with one of my black Avocado 24's that normally run on the VGOD. It will not replace the Avo, nothing can replace any of them, but it is a very nice addition to them for different flavor nuances from this same DIY. My all night vaping is almost always in near total darkness when it's a PITA to drip. So I mostly run the AVO at night and the CSMNT during the day when the VGOD is in the rotations.

    VGOD - days, and VGOD - nights.

    Nice... i love it when people seem to have all their stuff figured out. Day time vs night time set ups... Fruity vs dessert set ups... High power vs low power... Warm toasty vape vs cool summery vape.... The list goes on and on...

    CSMNT here I come!!

    Yeah Look, I noted it gets warm, but is still acceptable for me, Was trying to recreate the way the @KZOR did his heat test. Also heat is nothing a @hands tip wont Fix ;)
    I am very happy with it and the performance all and all.

    Hopefully @hands can hook me up with a silvery black g-priv themed wide bore drip tip to settle my ocd-ness complex for matchy matchy
