I know most kids could use cooling? :shocked: :freak:Originally posted by IndyGunFreak
Thats an awful lot of work when you can buy cooling kids for next to nothing that has almost all that pre-fabbed for you.
But hey, he did a good job, no doubt.
If I remember my fluid dynamics and heat transfer classes correctly, you will have to be careful of a few things:Originally posted by feetpiece
I agree it's a lot of work but I really like the idea of the in/out manifold rather than daisy chaining from one water block to the next. That way everything gets the coolest temp possible. So far I haven't found a prefab version so the only way to do that is to have it custom built:frown:
I have this block o' Zalman copper sitting on my CPU right now, and it isn't clearcoated or anything that I know of; that'd interfere with the transfer of heat.Originally posted by Creeper1313
It's a very cool project, don't get me wrong... but even the huge amount of labor involved aside, I have to wonder if he spent as much on copper as he would have spent on a pre-made kit. Also, since copper oxidizes, wouldn't aluminium have been a better choice for the blocks? I wouldn't feel too good about a green chunk of copper sitting on my CPU.
