Water cool a 1u server

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,
Just wondering if someone has done this? The server is at home and not in a data center environment so noise is an issue. I saw some Apogee waterblocks that are designed for 1u servers but I think it is cheaper to avoid a custom loop.

Has anyone tried a pre-packaged water-cooling solution? I'm thinking of the Corsair H80 series but I'm unsure if they:
1. provide enough cooling
2. will fit due to the mounting bracket having to fit underneath the mb

It is a HP ProLiant DL140 G3 unit so I'm assuming it is socket 775 compatible.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I will not be running it with the case over on so vertical height is not a limiting factor.

Thanks,
Josiah

Without the top on it then you should be able to run just about anything you want. Can you put up a picture of the inside? With the top on you could probably piece together an old swiftech apogee block with the side ports a danger den black ice GTS 120 or 240 and a DDC-1T. You would not to mount the radiator and pump outside of the computer though.

Apogee block = $10-20 + Shipping
DDC-1T = $35 or less shipped
GTS 120 or 240 = $25-35 plus shipping
Fittings = $5-15

You could get away without using a reservoir by buying a T or Y that has a tube on it with a plug at the end. If price is that big of a deal. If not then a micro res is $25

I honestly don't see why you wouldn't be able to do a H80 either though. With no top you could just use a Hyper 212 if you wanted to lol.
