WC on the Cheap

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys so i just watercooled my HTPC for only 63$, sure beats the stupid closed loop setups

thats a steal huh,

all the parts where bought from OCN members,

XSPC res/pump combo, $40 Shipped
120mm swiftech rad + swiftech GT block for 23$ shipped


here is some pics, sorry about bad cable managment but this PSUs cables are way to short to tuck beind, plus its just an htpc so it does not really matter.

my little amd dualcore runs at 3.8ghz and at 30C(load), Loving life on the cheap lol

Nice!



I'm pretty sure this actually outperforms a $63 aircooler too.

I thought I could go the budget route too but it did not work out that way.It's OK by me I need to spend my money on something.
Nice set up on the cheap.Looks great.

yea this is my secondary rig, my main rig is a complete money pit, i have been spending so much money on it, i have a thread called sexy red got wet, but thats off topic,

yea i might WC the gpu if i can find a cheap block lol

i know i have some broken 120mm fans laying around somewhere i just cant find right now, but when i do ill turn them into shrouds, and that will bring temps even lower
