Dry Ice in the UK ?

I had a lucky find today.

An old P2 in a draw in my house (I dunno where it came from)

As Im not too fussed about killing it I thought Id give dry ice cooling a try :-D

But where can I buy it in the Uk without spending too much ?

If it works OK on the P2 it would be an ideal way to find the "maximum" overclocking potential of my other CPUs...knowing that the cooling is as good as Dual TECs...with allot less hassle.

I think that theatre companies use it, there are loads of mail order suppliers, not sure that they will mail dry ice though.

Dry ice works rather well when combined with a 156W or 172W TEC . . .
