I have never watercooled before, but I want to build my own watercooling system? - Page 2

Ah, alright. - You're all making me afraid now, haha. xd

I wanted to start the whole water system, without being attached to the PC - And let it run for 24 hours, to make sure it wouldn't leak, or anything else.
So you're saying, if I could get a nice Copper Block, it would perform better?

- I dont understand this watercooling stuff, why is it some pumps are 123$ and their specs are worse, that the one I found for 17$ ?
is it just because they got a well known computer cooling brand? And might be more quiet? tongue.gif

Looking at the pumps made for WCing compared to that boat pump, these pumps are probably smaller and quieter.

What are the specs for the pump you found anyway. It's flow rate might be high but the pressure could be crap. Which would be a problem.

I know for my first and only WC setup I did a few years back, I used one of these: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=23814

It was NOISY and run on off a wall outlet, so it was a bit more annoying. Although running off a wall outlet made leak testing easy haha.

Haha, awesome biggrin.gif!

It says it's 12v and 17l per minute, and then it says the preasureheight / Flow / Head? is 7 meters? I've been looking at other pumps for watercooling, and they're about. 3,2l per minute and like 2 meters. So I'd say this thing should be great? XD

Water cooling guide is in my sig.

Aluminium and Copper? Where is the copper, if I may ask - The CPU itself is Aluminuim I guess, and this is Aluminuim? There's not going to be any copper involved?

Radiators are copper. EDIT: nvm, you're using a car radiator which is aluminum I assume? Even so, it'll make it hard later on if you want to upgrade to actual WC parts like you stated.

The pump sounds like an interesting idea haha.
I wouldn't skimp on the CPU block though. Good CPU blocks are much more than just a chunk of metal. Go look up a review of any of the blocks by Koolance, Swiftech, EK, or XSPC and you'll see the kind of detail that go into those.
Theyre not that expensive anyway.

Ahh, I bet the radiator is copper then - My bad, haha..
Well, here I cant find any cheap Block, they're pretty much the price of a H100 JUST for the block.
What if.. I make a copper block, like these pictures? I know a place, where I can make it - We got the tools.
Would this work out? http://www.webx.dk/oz2cpu/pcmod/water.htm

- Thanks for your time mate.

Well this is what the insides of a modern cpu block (XSPC raystorm) looks like:

Lots of tiny fins/water channels.

I'm not sure if the homemade waterblock design you linked would be sufficient, but it wont work as well as this.

The XSPC Raystorm block can be found for around $60-65. Not as much as the H100.

So that's the part that would be sitting right up on the CPU? - Does it have a top aswell? Or how does that work.

EDIT: It might be that the radiator is aluminuim, then it should not cause any trouble with the aluminium block right?

Since it's a bigger radiator and a more powerful pump, do YOU - Think this will perform better than a H100i ?
I really cant decide what to do right now tongue.gif

Heres where I got that picture from: http://www.pureoverclock.com/Review-detail/xspc-raystorm-cpu-water-block/3/
Look there and you get the full picture of how the block is set up.

And I honestly cant tell you how your aluminum or home made block would perform. Sounds like a fun experiment though lol.

Alright thanks alot.

How long time does it take, for Aluminum and copper to fight against eachother? And can it cause leaks in the block?
