Enjoy some shots of my small ghetto project, using a simple 12V motor, attached internally to fan blades, a simple power supply made out of an ATX PSU and some plastic sheet:

ASSEMBLY:
12V motor, fan blades, in blue a plastic casting from some candy, in green the top of a plastic water bottle, and some pieces of blue idraulic tube..of course silicone everywere.
You can see the bottle cap used to seal the motor from the water inside of the pump.











EVERYTHING GLUED TOGHETHER



SYSTEM:
A water bottle is here used as a reservoir





RESULTS:
That actually worked pretty well I have to say biggrin.gif No leaks after some sealing improvements.









LOOP COMPLETED:
Back to the top of the bottle, kept working for the rest of the tests.



Hope you enjoyed!
I HAVE to try something like that. Love the radiator free design, very innovative! Love the use of easy to find and cheap materials, and that pump is epic. What are your temps like?

I really wanted to do famicom colors but couldn't find any on eBay frown.gif the one I got is all black and comes with Grey buttons but I have some black ones currently, so I'll have an all black one. I'll probably do something custom with my old shell, maybe famicom if I can get the right paint. Does anyone have and recommendations for a thin paint that won't ever rub off or smell? Also it's gotta be kind of cheap too lol.

LOL thanks for the comment wink.gif I actually used this set up only for testing 2 radiators and one waterblock for leaks, but I didn't trustet too much this pump (even if it's still in my room and still works if used). For the real setup, I used a proper water pump, because after 3 hours of pumping this home made one started to slowly decrease the water flow because was slightly overheating (poor pump) but still worked fine, and if cooled with an external fan, could surely do something more thumb.gif


In the same period I also made an home made waterblock -just for fun- for an ancient P4 478 3.0 HT processor...I may have some pictures too.

I got bored once and was on Wikipedia. Guess what happened next. tongue.gif I might have been looking up the GBA Micro? I have considered getting one for cheapish on eBay, but I haven't yet worn out the one I've since near launch despite all the abuse. The thing is nearly 10 years old now! I definitely need to finish up my GBA mod: three sets of two AA cells in series in parallel. Theoretically it should last 45 hours before dying. I just need a case for them and I want to add back-lighting, or at least front-lighting, and more importantly I need a soldering iron.

220mm/150cfpm case fan mounted in an acrylic case using 2.5in lag bolts. You can see where the case had 80mm grills built in. The bolts have a square just under the head, so i drilled out the size of the bolt in the acrylic, heated the head of the bolt with a torch and melted them in place.
The fan had an led version for 5-6 bucks more but i got the non-led version. To my surprise the pcb in the fan still had the led pads and mounts on it! So i just crammed a nice blue led in there and soldered it up! I bought 5 leds, but only got around to adding 1 to see if it would work. I also scratched the hell out of the case sanding it. whoops.

Zipties to hold a Zalaman CPNS 8000 in place, since the dummy owner of it decide to leave me hanging on the AMD brackets for it. Was building my brothers system and we bought the cooler, so I had to get to modding!

Works fine even to this day. 30C Load on all four cores!tongue.gif
