Mac Classic II WC Mod

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have some cash lying around and came up with an idea: what if I was to put a BEASTLY wc system inside a mac classic II and have it cooling my desktop?

If I was, what should be put in it? Sofar im looking at red uv fluid, red tubing, and red uv lights (no clue to the other parts)

Any ideas?

PS: pic of the mac classic II http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._Classic_2.jpg

Go on ebay and try to find some old blocks that you could mod to fit the mac?

Wouldn't be the first time someone did something like this.



If you like it, go for it. I'll warn you from now, the hardest part is going to be the screen lol.

I don't think some people get what he is trying to do here. From what I gather, he wants to turn a Mac Classic into an external watercooling setup, correct?

I can definitely be done. Do you want the screen to still work? , or would you put in a piece of acrylic? (note how the screen isn't flat, acrylic is going to be tricky)
Just have the hoses running through the back of the comp.
One thing I see is that there aren't really enough vents for fans... Make sure you can fit a rad in there before you buy all of your parts.
