Need a *tiny* pump/waterblock/raidaitor for a watercooling system

Im going to take on the challenge of trying to shove a watercooling system into my Shuttle XPC. This will be my 2nd venture into watercooling (1st was way back when I had a p2 400 @ 600mhz ). I need *tiny* things for this because im working with hardly any room. Im not going for stellar cooling if its better than what I have now then that will be a plus. I just want to see if it can be done in mine (I think it can if I can get small enough things).
I know its been done in one of the previous XPC's but my SB61G2 is smaller than the previous models.

In my writeup It shows a fan and a fan shroud around the shuttle ICE cooler, I was thinking about trying to fit a raidiaitor inside that shroud since the shround screws onto the back of the shuttle easily and it holds the fan.

Anyone know of tiny watercooling things?

Yes.. all you people got the thought of trying to shove a watercooling system in here. How dare you all, you are going to make me spend more money now, bastages!

I dont want a pump that will run off my psu I have a spot picked out on the back im going to cut a hole in to mount a psu plug so I can have internal AC power. Do you know of a small AC powered pump off the top of your head? and whats a BIM rad?

The last time I watercooled anything was 2 years ago when it was far from mainstream

the inline pump from www.sysfx.net will fit.

BIM= black ice micro (80mm fan size) should fit roughly around where the ICE radiator sits.
the shuttle on the sysfx site has a 2x60mm radiator on top back panel w/ 2 60mm fans but I think that guy moved his PSU to the front?.

I think any retail CPU waterblock will do.

I am about to start a watercooling project based on the SN45G shuttle. But having a tough time finding a GPU waterblock that will fit inside the case (the agp slot is too close to the side panel).

I manage to cram medium sized components into a midi tower with 2 hard drives and 2 cd driver. Best way to squish things in is get lots of elbow joints so you can get the pipes exactly where you want without kinking. I've only done one system so I'm not a pro on this one.

And might I suggest a 5.25" bay reservoir? They look cool and fit nicely without needing much mounting, mine should arrive tomorrow...

Get the design right, and you don't need a reservoir at all! You just need somewhere for expansion to occur. That could simply be a bit of vertical tubing mostly containing air. This just gives the excess water somewhere to go.

The downsides to having no reservoir? Your radiator has to work properly. The upsides? There's fairly little fluid in the system, so a leak won't dump gallons of water on your floor, and the system will reach equilibrium quickly.

Just got the bay reservoir. NOt hugely impressed cos the plastic stops (it comes with 4 drilled holes) are so soft that you can't screw them in tight enough without breaking them. Had to rip a mangled one out and replace it with an inlet nozzle, then had to join 2 inlets together with a T-piece and some tubing to close the system. Got some el-cheapo UV dye. Either the dye is too cheap or the UV strip I have isn't really UV
