Well, a 0.1" layer of crud or oxidation isn't a problem in plumbing, but could well be in a waterblock.

And there's also a problem called galvanic corrosion--where one metal corrodes in place of another--the waterblock could corrode in order to save some hunk of metal in the sewer.

Closed loop cooling systems use additives to fight this and other forms of deterioration. Tap water doesn't have them.

Let's do a little calculation for fun. A typical coolant flow rate is 2 gallons per minute. That works out to 120 gallons an hour, 2880 a day.

That would fill a nice sized in-ground swimming pool in five days.

Hmmm . Well silicon does not corrode does it? So go for direct Die cooling!! Here is how.
  • Take your CPU out and remove its heat spreader.
  • Then carve a block of plastic about the size of the whole chip.
  • Cut a whole in the plastic the size of the CPU die.
  • Also make recessions for anything else on the top of the chip.
Oh well I guess i just created a Picture to show what i mean

what about this.

you take a hose and attach it to your water line, run this line to your block

take a second hose and attach it further down the main line for the return line.

now the water will run up to the block and go back into the tubing just a little warmer.


OR

put ur pc near your water heater, tap 2 holes into the feed line and ru nthat to ur pc.That'll be easyy.

anyone know the average psi of a water system?

The only problem with tapping in to a main in two different spots is ,you will still need some type of water usage to get flow . If all the faucets are off ,and no water using appliances are running, your system is just going to build pressure and sit stagnent. Same with the hot water tank. You are going to need to draw hot water out of the tank in order for it to draw water from the main.

Basically you need to have a place to exit water out of the mains to create any type of flow in the water block

I am thinking about running a ari and water cooler block, I will use air primarility and kick on the water for fun, unfortunatly I will have to waste what goes through??? Just a though, I have another post Labled System Sizing??? Any engineers out there? where I have posted an idea for a chiller system to go below 60F

If you have a swimming pool just use your cpu as a water heater. Loop it back into your pool. Get a pond pump and run that sucker.
