Or go to a coin store and pick up an old silver $ for as cheep as you can. I know in Canada any older than 1964 are good to kill
coin store might be a cool choice.

i was thinking a clay mold? or perhaps a cast iron skillet with the granule inside and heating it with a torch from the other side? I suppose even if its a funny shape, you could probably hammer it out to be more manageable.
As far as I know, pure silver (but specially gold) are really easy to mold, it could be an idea. I just don't like the idea of putting them inside the loop without nothing, if they're too little I fear that they might go inside my waterblocks.

Something sweet would be finding a .999 silver bullet. You know "good for killing werewolfs, vampires, algae and bacteria".

Or, I could just get the granules and put them in an empty teabag.

Hmm, this makes me wonder, what would be both epic and silver? I wonder how much an engraved .999 silver ring would cost...engrave it with your forum name, or www.overclock.net and instant win.

Silver bullet would be epic. Then make up the rest of the case in Lone Ranger cowboy style. He was the first to use silver bullets

If you really wanted to have a silver bullet in your res, you could easy buy a bullet mold (ebay $20 or so depending on what shape/size you want it) or make a mold and just make a bullet. Would be pretty awesome.

Edit: After a little bit of reading it seems that molding your own silver bullets is tad harder than molding lead bullets. From what I read when casted the silver bullet actually shrinks slightly when setting up, thus it is slightly smaller than the mold it was originally in. And it also takes quite a bit more heat to melt that silver down (1763.2 °F). Some people just suggest to get a piece of pure silver rod the gauge needed and lathe the shape of the bullet.

I'll think about the silver bullet. It's a shame that they won't sell it on eBay and such, since we're still talking about ammo.
Right now the most easy way would be silver granule + teabag or muslin square.

Yeah, that would be the easier and cheaper solution right now. When I get payed I'm thinking of getting a mold and trying it.

As long as they can't get into the loop or restrict flow, I don't see the problem. You could just drop one in your res that's to big to get through the inlet/outlet. I mean it's the same thing as a kill coil, just not a coil.

You could always get a hammer

If you have anything to melt them melt a few peices togther so they cant be picked up by the pump. Only reason we use coils is you make it large enugh the pump cant get it and send it thru your loop.

u might want to go with a synthetic mesh of some kind, for longevity..organics could deteriorate.

also, my ex was into making jewelry- made me a number of rings n a buncha artsy stuff outa silver; she bought these flat, smooth approx 2"x 2" pieces of bullion, or whatever its called, and it wasnt more than a few millimeters thick.

if u can find anything similar, id suggest simply lying a piece on the bottom of ur res, maybe securing it w a small dollop of silicone, similar to the process w/ thermal paste..thats if its subject to any suction in the area..(idk where ur intake is / how deep ur res is in relation to where the item would be located- its possible it wouldnt require restraint at all.)

..thats if u cant find wire..which jewelry stores also sell, and, depending on ur setup, might be easier. just make sure you dont buy silver solder- or if u do, verify its silver content thoroughly before purchase.

gl (:

---------------

Edit: by "jewelry store", i mean jewelry MAKING store / jewelry supply store. not an establishment that deals primarily in necklaces / rings / etc. if u attempt to purchase bulk silver at one of those, u may be overcharged. go for crafter's bulk, or premade crafter's bullion.

-cheers.
