1) Reservoir Dolimio Garlic & White Wine spaghetti sauce bottle small.
2) 240 volt submersible water feature pump 300lt/hr
3) Radiator General Motors Holden Commodore auto transmission oil cooler from mate who is a mechanic there.
4) Home made CPU block made from stuff I had lying around home.
5) Top vent hole hacked out with bloke up the roads hole saw.
6) Half a tube of RTV Ultra Blue silicon sealer (maybe 3/4 of tube).
7) Acrylic side cover cut out from works bench top display protector.
8) 240 volt power connector for pump out of something I found a the tip.

AND IT ALL WORKS

As you can see in the last picture I'm still using the original socket A heatsink clamp!
That radiator is 170mm x 290mm x 20mm & keeps my 2000+ stock 133FSB@209FSB x 11 multiplier (notice that I still have tight ram timings I don't think the CPU can go much higher FSB) on a cool day around 55 Deg C.
And for AU$30 anyone should be able to have water cooling.
If you want to I can walk you through how to make your own!!

The first thing you will need is a friend with a metal lathe or mill. You need this because to pay someone they will want AU$60hr. The pumps you can buy on Ebay for around AU$9.95 buy the pump first (after you find someone with a lathe doesn't need to be a big one). Then you will know what size hose will fit the pump best I used CVT
(clear vinyl tube) radiator get from anywhere as stated my one is an automatic transmission cooler but if you want bigger car air con evaporators work even better I've got one of them aswell. CPU block is made from 6mm thick Au try to get a piece around the same size as your heatsinks base. Then get your mate to lathe out a 34mm approx OD hole until you have about 1.2mm left this is where the water removes the heat then find a thin piece of metal I used stainless steel for the top cover in the picture you can see the hoses going into it on the picture the brass fitting are cut down to one or two threads and then I used Loctite 262 super stud lock. Then screw it down with some gasket goo to seal it then hook up the hoses.

Could you please go into more details about the CPU block?

Well what u need to do first if u want to use your original retaining clip is measure the thickness of the heatsink (that is between where the retaining clip touches the heatsink & where it makes contact with the CPU my one was about 5.5mm thick). U need to do this so that u still have the same amount of pressure on the chip. The next one I make I'll make wider that is the gap between the two hoses mine is a tight fit between the brass fittings. And the bigger it is the more water there is in it cooler it gets gooood stuff. So back to the block hope the basic picture helps some u need to lathe out the centre of your block of Alum leaving it about 1.2 to 1.5 mm thick on the bottom and about still having 5 to 6mm of thickness on the sides so that your top plate has something to seal onto and the screws to go into.The hardest part is getting the brass hose fittings into the thin top plate and I highly recogmend using Loctite 262 Super Stud Lock to help seal and stop the brass hose fittings from coming out. I'm working on another prototype at this time I don't know if it will work yet.
I'll try to get some better pictures for u.

Ok, it's really raw but, I LOVE IT!! I look at all that blue silicone and shudder!! I look at the hose running through the pci slot opening and it looks like it is pinched going through. But. I love it. Your imagination is great! What are you using to push air through the radiator?. By the way I really like your choice of radiators too!

Don't know if is big enough comming into spring here in The Land Down Under and core temp is slowly rising each day, I'll try bigger faster fans. All my case fans & PSU fans are blowing out so that it draws the air through the radiator. Ambient temp is still good no different from before water.

I think it is generally accepted that copper will work better. Make sure you use an anti-corrosive.

Silver is the best heat conductor then copper, I found that big pieces of copper are very hard to find. But if you go to a hardware store there are things called soft faced hammers one of the faces is normally made of copper just buy a replacement face.
