I have thought using one of these Z7UH40Q001-1610

and just pumping coolant through them after wacking off the fins and flaring the tubes.
Of course I would end up with anther fan I don't use.
I have a new heater core off a 88 Lincoln that I could also use. I could probably get by just sitting it on top of the case with no fan.
I find it odd that I can by a rebuilt water pump for a 302 Ford for less than water pump for PC cooling system.


That would probably work well. I was thinking of trying that as well. Wait till you see the new one, Ill try to remeber to post some pictures finally. Had a bit of an issue with Drill bits breaking, so I got a little excited with the hammer. She's a little beat up but everything that matters is where it needs to be.

Oh also, If your looking for a cheap water pump. Use a pond one from a hardware store, I found one for 13 dollars at home hardware. You just need a container to submerge it in which can double as your resevoir.

Just use a power bar with your comp and pump hooked to it, that way you cant turn on PC without powering pump. Thats what I have to do with my Zalman Reserator anyways.

Had a bit of trouble with bits breaking off so its not as pretty as I though it would be.
Got the issue solved now I think, cutting fluid is great.

Going to cap off these collars and put a nipple in at 90 degrees so they stick straight up when mounted.

I think using some JB weld or similar will work perfect for sealing it all up.

Hey Magi.. looking good, how are things coming with this?

I see you went through some drill bits there. Cobalt drill bits work best for alum and copper.. drill at slow speed and as you know.. use lots of cutting oil.

Hey juneau78, yes you're at the right thread. Thanks for the link.. great mod on that heat pipe! thumb.gif

Oh wow! I just looked at that link to the foreign site. I have a Xiggy DK that I am not using. I wonder how effective doing something like that would be? My mind is racing now!

Hey, sorry for the lack of updates, its been sitting half finished for a month. Stuff keeps coming up, hopefully I get a few hours free to work on it soon.

Cobalt is the best? I figured the HSS would be good since its harder then copper/aluminum, Ill try some cobalt bits.

Lack of a power supply is putting a damper on things, I don't want to experiment on my main system.

I was thinking of trying the heatpipe one but I gave/sold all my coolers that were like that.

On your first prototype. How did you get the copper pipe bend so cleanly so close to the heatsink?
