Copper pipe for water cooling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
In the near future I am looking to shift from air to water cooling, and I have recently come across a pipe that might work out for it. The only issue is I have no knowledge of building or working with copper piping so I feel like it would be quite the endeavor for my first wc build. I took a few pictures of it and am wondering if anyone can tell me more about the possibilities of using it or not. The pipe is probably around 8 feet if I were to guess.

The best I could take of the writing on it and a side shot to show diameter and pipe density. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am in no rush nor extreme need to do this undertaking and the pipe doesn't have to be used. I am just interested to know if it could work for it as it would be way more enjoyable to work with the metal on this project.

That's household copper piping - way to big for PC water cooling. The few rigs i've seen with actual copper piping in them used maybe 1/4" copper pipes. I'd take that to a scrap yard and get some money for it.

As I figured, the pipe seemed to be no different that something used for that. It also seemed like it would be too big/heavy for the components when filled. It is a pretty durable "feeling" pipe. I appreciate your quick response!
