Blueprints for a water cooling system?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My girlfriends father is a computer guy as well and he is a machinist so he said if I could find the blueprints he would make up all the parts that he can that I need for a system instead of buying them. If anyone has the blue prints I would greatly appreciate it.

I doubt you'll find anyone to do that for you for free, but I can tell you what you need tongue.gif

You need:

-A pump (you won't be able to build that)
-A radiator, or cooling device (If you're building it at home a Venturi Cooler works the best, here's a thread on it)

-A waterblock, lane based blocks are the simplest as far as homeade ones. Here's a pic

-A reservoir, that's easy. Just a chamber to store liquid tongue.gif if you go with a Venturi cooler, they usually work as a res tongue.gif

Most water cooling blocks are copper chunks routed out with a CNC with an o-ring and plastic cover to screw down. I doubt the CNC instructions are very similar between any two blocks.

Radiators are generally made of copper (most have brass as well) with flat water channels and ribbon fins that have offsets cut into them in the opposing direction of the ribbon bend with the fins soldered to the water channels.

The standard threads are British G 1/4 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_standard_pipe_thread).

A reservoir is a plastic box or cylinder with a couple G1/4 connections... why oh why do these sometimes cost $50+?


... I could understand wanting to build a customized CPU block to try to get better temps and maybe make a cheap reservoir, but I'm not sure it's worth the time to build the other parts when several other companies have cost-effectively mass produced them.

$50-60 for a raystorm block. it would be easier and less headache. other than a home built res, youre better off in my opinion to buy the rest.

You doubt I will find anyone to do what free for me? The machining or the blueprints? The machining is a hobby of his aside from his job an he has unlimited access to the metal and machines so he offered to do it if I could find the blue prints for a CPU block GPU block and then the rest. Thanks for all the suggestions.

The reservoir's are usually pricey because they are pressure tested up to, at least, 1.5bars. Most reservoirs are relatively small and are air tight (more or less) so if they can't deal with pressure well enough they will crack/break/leak.

Given that you'd spend around $20 to $45 on acrylic and glue/epoxy and quite a bit of time to make a reservoir that either fit in a baydrive.. All in all the prices for most reservoirs are pretty well priced... Then you have the FrozneQ reservoirs which are incredibly overpriced, however; they are really nice looking XD
