A handy water cooling tool.

Just found this on amazon and thought i would share it with you. (link)



It is a power socket to molex lead, which would be very handy for powering a pump when making a water cooled build, saving you the time and effort of shorting a slave PSU to do it.



It id priced here at the low cost of £14



Other used could be powering fans, perhaps to test undervolting noise levels or even externally powering old optical or hard drives for file recovery, provided you have a molex to SATA adapter.

I think TTL will kill me if i do not mention a hose cutter, here is one example from XSPC. (Link)



It costs just over £7 but they are so much better than using scissors, and if you water cool in any way often it id definitely worth such a small price.

If there are any other handy tools any of you guys find or already know about please post it below.

Paper clip > everything else

EDIT: I thought it was something else, nevermind.

Thought it was something else? What?

Any little tools you find handy for builds SieB? Good ScrewDriver sets or anything like that?

I've seen those before. I think my mate has one actually.

I've got an old unbranded 500w PSU myself that I use for things like that or testing fans.

Handy little tool especially for those that work on site, I personally use a old 300w itx PSU on my bench which I ripped from a Dell system, then added a 20pin blanking plate with a switch on it.

Nice find though WYP I may have to get one for work.

I thought it was something to short the PSU with, when in fact it is a PSU but just for the pump. It's why I said paperclip because you could just use a paperclip to short the PSU rather than buy something that shorts it for you.

This was before I realised it is an actual PSU to power the pump... it's been a long hard, hot day... i'm not thinking strait.

Haha, ok fair enough. I just think it would be handy for a few people here, especially if you need to use a slave PSU often.

Hell even TTL might want one for Builds, guides or reviews.

Did you find it on your own, or did you discover it through Linus' video?
