Simple Watercooling??

Would this work? lol



. Adjustable speed!

. Chilled!

. Always fresh fluid!

. Gets colder all the time!

. Cheap!


It should work

But would suffer from corrosion or rust, anyone ever done this before?

Well, unless you take care of condensing issues your pc will be short lived.... Tap water is way colder than roomtemp and hence will cause condensing on your block and possibly tubing.. That, and possible corrosion (not rust, unless you plan on using iron blocks (do that even exist???)), but if you use aluminium that shouldn't be a big issue, copper is slightly worse me think.. or is it the other way around??..

Anyway.. yes, it'll work.. and it'll have quite a flow speed so 1/2" ID, and whilst you're at it I'ld cool the rest of the components aswell, though.. that means more insulation and more care taken to counter condensing issues..

Heck.. ppl been creative in cooling pc's for years ..

Most impressive I ever saw was a pc completely submerged in CFC and one in oil.. think tomshardware did a oil cooled one, just keep the harddrive and cdrom out of the fluid and it's all dandy and fine.. Since the oil/fluid ain't causing shorts :d, but I'ld say thats messy..

Love the bong idea, but ohh mama, the humidity would kill my astma..

an easier option (less risky) would be a closed loop system with no fans, using a pump, then cool the radiator with running tap water (hope ya not on a meter) lol

Yeah they would but I reckon it'll be good for benching.. constant flow of new water and cold as well..

Nice, innovative design there mate.. I'd love to give it a go although I don't have any tap near my PC, and don't have any neopropene to insulate my motherboard or a CPU block!
