thread has been moved to here

hello everyone, I had a PS2 and a thermaltake watercooling system lying around from a guy for 40 bucks, guess what i did with it. A WATER COOLED PS2!!!

this is the PCB of the PS2. Isn't the processor preety.



This is the Back


Then i added the waterblock and memory heatsink (changed it later to a southbridge heatsink from a broken board)



this is it with the southbridge heatsink (very SEXY!)



This is the power converter for the PS2



Its runs (water cooling not setup yet) but why not. P.S I ran out of Epoxy




The disk drive works works too.



the water cooling system is setup, but haven't added coolant yet. The white thing is a molex power supply for a scsi tape drive.



A Closer Look at the Tape Drive



Adding coolant to the System



A look at the whole system with coolant



A Close up at the PCB ( I didnt notice the glob of coolant at the bottom right until i posted this)




It runs YAY
(glob hasn't hit PCB yet)



I took this last picture before i went to go a game, when i came back, you guessed it tch tch tch, short circuit. REMEMBER FRIENDS DON' LET FRIENDS BUY THERMALTAKE PRODUCTS!



Now I have a broken PS2,
but i had fun. tell me what you think.

That is really awesome. I think though you needed to cool the EE as well (that is the GPU) >.>

I don't know if TT is to blame or the gobs of coolant and tape, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless, and I don't know how cautious I'd be with an old PS2, anyway. Now you just need to do it again and make a case for it.


+REP for an awesome idea and going through with it.

Haha, I'm using a hair tie on one of my HR-03+ heat pipes to the fan to hold it in place (partially) because I'm using a fan size that the HR-03+ doesn't officially support.

So yeah, ghetto mods are workable sometimes.

I would understand someone doing this is a PS3 or 360, but a PS2? Hell - you might as well do watercooling on your PSP. XD
