Glitter Cooler

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I just came over from the welcome thread where I mentioned that I am interested in learning all about overclocking by building a system of my own.

My husband will be helping me through the process and we'll make some videos of the progress but I told him the only requirement that I have is I want a water cooler with glitter inside!

I saw online this guy who did a water cooling system ( YouTube- Bloody Red Update) that had all clear tubing and the water was all red. I want to do something like that with all clear tubing but instead of the red, have glitter inside with the water.

Anyone foresee issues with doing this?

All help is appreciated.

Buildup will be the biggest issue by far. You will get glitter all caked up in your waterblock and your rad and that would not be fun to clean out at all. And also it would stop your water from flowing.
Edit: nice to see locals on the forum

Thanks for the reply.

Do you think there's a work around?

I think a better idea would be to glue glitter to the outside of the tubing.

Brush on some transparent glue then sprinkle on the glitter.

Welcome to OCN, by the way.

The water flow will always pull the glitter along and it will eventually jam up somewhere.... no work around....

If you really really wanted it... it would have to be in seperate loop and the pump would need a filtration system that also diffuses the intake...

What if I used really, really small pieces of glitter?

Like, we're talking tiny.

Would it work then?

As in microscopic? Yes, but you wouldn't be able to see it either....


Anything bigger would clog the radiator, impeller, and blocks.

How tiny?

Take a look at how small the gap is between pins inside a waterblock and see if it is more tiny than that.

NO, you can't do it.


No glitter in your waterblock.

Would be nice if you could do a tube over a tube though. Say perhaps the outside tube filled with glitter and water and sealed when you clamp the inside tube to the bard.

Be hard top seal though but would be different though. Heck sounds like i am encouraging the thing......
