My friend in Toronto bought two 30cm DC fans. It doesn't cover the etire window so he used cardboard to cover the gaps, lol. Good thing it doesn't rain much in Toronto.

Hello everyone, and yes, I came back to show you my poor 24/24h old PC (478 Pentium IV - 3.0GHz - HT), improved many times during these years..this is the "next level"..

Home made water cooling sistem, made entirely out of used or free pieces, exept for the radiator that actually cost me about 15€ (~15$) and the aquarium submersible pump (6€).













Made a simple gasket:







Waterblock complete..







Mounting on the main board:





The pump is in a temporary bowl built out of a DVD can:



The radiator with two 140 TR fans:









First test of the loop: thumb.gif







...

Impressive, what was the cooling performance and reliability like?

lol, nice job

If this is not a mission-critical machine, i won't say anything like "So you've cut up an ALUMINIUM HS and teamed it up with an brass/copper rad..." smile.gif

Thanks!! thumb.gif

These points will be discovered during next weeks of work, I had not enogh time to build and also check the system performance.

At the moment I just know that in IDLE the temperatures dropped down from 38/42°C (~104°F) to 24/27°C (~77°F) and thats really impressive for a simple system like that, but in the next days I will check for other info like noise (just from the fans, the pump is really silent), temperatures and possible problems.

The system survived to 10hours of 100% full CPU, and everything was fine: no leaks or any type of problem.

Thanks for the advice, and don't worry, I double checked before building the entire system, and the RAD ia actually made in alluminium, is an old type of radiator, not made out of copper biggrin.gif

I was aware about this particular problem, and hopefuly I managed to avoid it.

Did some more work to it:

Penny heatsink!

Still need to chop it up. I'll get pics of that.

Not ghetto enough...



Sorry for a lousy pic, my potato can't take pics right now so I had to use a pickle instead.

By the way, those headphones are ghetto'd as well. I bought a pair of those noise cancelling headphones guys on building sites use for $2 along with a pair of $1 PC headphones off eBay, drilled a few holes in the noise canceling headphones for the cables and speakers to be used from that $1 junk, then after some disassembling, soldering work and assembling, I got those.

Best headphones I ever owned, and they cost me 1/3 the price of the cheapest Chinese crap I could buy around here. biggrin.gif

Hey, that's not even bad, I cleaned it up before I took the pic. Those cables are just three cellphone chargers, PSU, monitor, stereo, LED music box adapter, and another extender that stands a bit out of the pic with my TV amp cable, another PSU, two desk lamps, drill charger, battery-powered vacuum cleaner and my electronics test bench plugged into it.

You should have seen it before I moved the rest of the stuff away, there were 5 adapters, a bunch of cable pieces and two disassembled PSUs with stripped wires plugged directly into the extender's power outlet alongside what's currently there. Used to be a lot more neat a few months ago but back then the extender was attached to the desk leg which I had to take off when I got a bigger case, damn thing couldn't fit under the desk otherwise. The extender is still screwed onto the ripped off desk leg though, I'm too lazy to take it off. tongue.gif

And I just saw the thermal paste I was looking for in the pic, right behind the cable mess. That saves me some time, I'd have to use callus cream otherwise which needs a few hours of IBT to burn-in. smile.gif
