Since I want to make a waterblock, but dont have any basic materials, I have come up with an idea.<br><br>
Would it be possible to use one of these:<br><a href="http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=HB5060&CATID=5&keywords=&SPECIAL=&form=CAT&ProdCodeOnly=&Keyword1=&Keyword2=&pageNumber=&priceMin=&priceMax=&SUBCATID=481" target="_blank">http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView...=&SUBCATID=481</a><br><br>
; add some barbs, seal it and use it as a waterblock?

Not really original, but still a kickass idea.

Hmmm aluminum good conductivity, but I would go for copper personally.

great idea bud, go for it, you may be onto something here. Yes Cu is better than aluminum, but hey, aluminum may do a good enough job.

Go with copper, it can be soldered. Sealing aluminum will be a total challenge unless you can Mig/Tig weld.<br><br>
Just silver solder a copper end cap to a 2x2" square of 1/8" plate and add 2 barbs at the top. Not the best but it works.

Most glues do not stand up too long to coolants. They break down after a bit and leak.

Thats a start... get that little box, and cut on side of it out, then take an old vga cooler, like one off a 6600/6800 series card and cut it to size so it fits in to replace th one side, and on opposite side put your barbs... seal it all and boom, you have a wied, ugly, but half decent block!<br />
<br />
To seal it all, i say solder/braze it.

Whats a copper care package??<br />
<br />
anyways....<br />
<br />
I had another idea, since i have a lot of thin alu bars, it thought i can somehow stack them up and use it like an ordinary block.<br />
<br />
Any thoughts?<br />
<br />
PS i hope this orignal enough <img src="/images/smilies/cool.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Cool" class="inlineimg" /><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/2/2a/2a97d4a7_vbattach34031.bmp"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616429/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

You could seal those ally bars with red permatex to make it leak proof, and the design looks quite good.<br />
<br />
Copper care package = package of copper parts.
