Step 1: Parts:

12v XHP70 LED
Condenser Lens

XL4015 DC-DC converter

CPU Cooler

PVC Pipe

On/Off switch

Volt meter

14.8V 18650 battery pack

4s BMS

Step 2: Flashlight Body

Inside the photo enlarger you will find condenser lenses. Remove the lens and attach it to the pvc pipe fitting using silicone. Mine was a perfect fit, no silicone needed.

Cut a 30cm piece of pvc pipe. Make some holes for ventilation. Cut the holes for the on/off switch and volt meter.

Step 3: LED and Wiring

Make some holes in the pc cooler. Add some thermal paste and use screws to attach the led.

I draw a simple diagram, I hope you will understand the wiring

The led and cpu fan need 12v. I used xl4015 DC-DC buck converter to convert the 14.8 volt from the battery pack to 12v.

I used a 4s 14.8v 18650 battery pack with 4s Bms to power the flashlight.

The volt meter is used to check the battery voltage.

Step 4: Done

It is a very powerful flashlight, cheap and easy to make. It has the advantage of a large battery. Also it can be used for a long period of time because of the large cooler.

I hope it will help you!
