Introduction: Home Made PC Water Cooling
Step 1: Tools
2.A normal CPU heat sink.
3.A copper tube. (like the one used in refrigerators)
4.A plastic tube.
5.An aquarium pump.
6.A glass or plastic Jar.
8.Epoxy - Plasticsteel
Step 2: Preparing the Water Block
The process of preparing the water block begins with deattaching the fan from the heatsink and then making two holes in the middle of it. The holes end must reach each other to allow water to pass through and that was achieved by drilling holes in diagonal drilling procedures
Step 3: Preparing the Water Tank.
Use a normal glass or plastic jar and fill it with distilled water to be your coolant tank. Insert the aquarium water pump in that jar after attaching a plastic tube to it to allow water to run and reach the water block. Make three holes in the jars cover one for the outgoing water tube and another for the incoming water tube and the third for the pumps electricity wire.
Step 4: Preparing the Radiator
An efficient radiator can be made using a copper tube allowing the water to be cooled by going in circles. You can add a normal fan to get air through the circles of the tube which will provide a better air flow and cooling.
Step 5: Bring Everything Together
After finalizing your radiator, attaching everything together is easy. By attaching the heat sink (water block) to its original place and positioning the glass jar (coolant tank ) in the PC case in my case I choose to put it under the HDD.- and you should also weir the pump with your power supply, you can use a relay to start the pump when the PC initialize.
Step 6: Final Project
The block is an original heatsink from an original Intel fan.
The tubes used are the ones you can find in a hospital or pharmacy.
The water pump is an aquarium water pump.
This project is easy yet efficient as the temperature after installing the system reached only 24c.
