Is such water cooling gonna be good enough ? Answered

I would like to make water cooling for laptop. But not sure if it will cool good enough, tell me what you think. I'm thinking to use copper tube, plastic tubes, some reservoir. In reservoir should be wave maker for aquarium (like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009YEEW2K/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2/175-5374395-0420233?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_r=03QDBA7BQG1ZPRCY7GAP&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1944687582&pf_rd_i=B013Q5RTFO) for quiet (without noise) water circulation through a tube.

A wave maker is probably a bad solution to get a good water flow...

Here's an interesting way of watercooling your laptop, if you're really willing to do it that is. https://www.instructables.com/id/Repaint-and-Watercool-Your-Laptop/

Although, if you have a bit newer laptop it most likely uses the same cooling pipe for the integrated GPU and the CPU so you would need to make two cooling blocks and you should also expect to have to cut a lots of holes in your laptop and the chance of it to never turn on again ether way...

There's also this more reliable solution that might be just what you're looking for since it does not requires any modifications and can be removed from the laptop at any time. https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-removable-laptop-water-cooler!-And-other-co/

Hope this helps. :)

I think there is a reason why companies offer dedicated water cooling solutions for sale...

Exactly!
Who want to carry around water and a pump?
Somehow this beats the purpose of being portable and easy to carry.
Ask your electronics scrapyard for some old graphics cards with a heatpipe.
They should be small enough to fit into your case with little mods and don't need water for similar results.

I was actually wanting to see the 800 gph pump used on the laptop.

That's an idea, but like Downunder said, it's not something that goes with the idea of a laptop, however, I thing placing your tube here would prevent the airflow from the fan (if still used), I don't know how it's setup inside your machine but putting the tube on the copper calo-duct, nearer to the CPU could be great IMHO
