Ya I scraped the fishtank res for the heater from the keurig, it holds quite a lot of fluid and is leak proof, I mainly did this just to see if " I " could do it, frankly I'm surprised I didn't blow something up lol. I believe at some point I will move on to bigger and better cooling, but its time will come. I've got a bunch of copper I'm going to bring and get melted down so I can make a new water block, so wish me luck on that project, I will keep this post updated as long as I am using this system.

So I have found my next addition to my liquid cooling unit. I know some people see this thread and say thats been done before!.. But has it actually been done like this. I started with an H50 all in one unit and modified it with a broken Keurig unit, all hoses and the extra pump and the reservoir came from the Keurig. The reservoir is about 80% aluminum and 20% plastic, now Im going to add 2 peltiers to my system with the idea that I can chill the liquid in the aluminum reservoir for better cooling. Now you might ask why would you do that, and my answer is for the simple reason that I have absolutely no money invested into this cooling system. All parts were either scavenged or given to me. So I found 2 small peltiers which will cost me roughly $17 and 2 fans for these peltiers for about $8. I will post more pictures and temps when my parts arrive, and I am running currently at 3.8GHz with 40 degrees with an ambient temp of around 80 degrees, full load at about 52 degrees. Stock clocks at 2.8GHz

How do you plan on cooling the peltiers?

The peltiers I chose are low wattage and come with their own heat sinks, I will have 2 60mm fans one for each, and I also have a fan in front of the reservoir pulling air to the front of the case, so its pushing air out the front to remove heat so the 2 fans plus my front mounted fan ( which is a re purposed Xbos 360 fan) I feel that would work, or I had thoughts of adding them to the loop, since im zero dollars invested in this project spending the $30 for the peltiers and fans isn't a big deal to me.



Actually I will be purchasing different peltiers as the 2 I were going to purchase were not sufficient enough for my goal.

SO it has been a while since I posted on this thread, I got the peltiers, but have not included them in my build, im not sure if I ever will but I have 2 peltiers and I literally pad $1.50 for them. So as move on just a little recap I got a new rad. My total build is based on things I've found around my hosue t use, the latest edition comes from a broken AC. The rad is using dual copper pipes in and out, both into a single line, so I don't have to use a splitter anywhere because it is already doing that itself, ive noticed a 10 degree drop in temps, its quite a big rad, Iwill add pics later
