Watercooling questions

I wanna start watercooling (or, for fireball, wattercoolling). What's the best heatercore from a car to use? What's a good cheap waterblock (<$30 range)? And a good cheap pump?

Most heatercores will work.

Copper will be better and will be less likely to corode (better than alluminium) the bigger the better upto a point. Get a lorry one and you probably wont need any/many fans at all.

Pump.

like Philber says the eheim is great. Im using a 1250 version but thats probably overkill for just a CPU system (im planning on expanding)

Waterblock.

For £30 you will struggle to buy anything good (Please proove me wrong) Have a read of spodesabode and see if you fancy making one. Owen on overclockers.com has also written some good DIY articles.

i made a waterblock for free, but its direct to die cooling so not really a good idea as no one has tested one over a long period, except maybe spode or surlyjoe.

to be honest i dont think there are any commercial blocks available for that type of money... but a bee-hive is as good as anything commercial at the moment and dirt cheap! you can read how to make one at spodesabode.

www.onlinemetals.com has a good selection, but if your makin a beehive the easiest way is to just buty a 3/16 or 1/4 inch coldplate for a peltier, they are about $3 I think, everyting else you can get at home depot.
Joe kelly has one over at Procooling he's gonna use in the second half of his w/b roundup, so we'll see jussst how well the design has held up.

Hmmm, Here's my setup,

I picked up a submersible pump at the local pet store that pushes 160 GPH for around $30

I picked up a Oil Cooler from a Pontiac Fiero at the Junk Yard for $8. It fits 2 120mmFans perfectly.

I got my water block(Maze2) from Danger den for around $45

I am currently running a 156 watt pelt as well.

Temps are around 28C under load.

I tried direct die cooling for a bit, and it worked for awile but after a bit my crappy seal busted out..I wouldn't trust it for extended periods of time..the maze series blocks have always been good, and I'm currently using the maze 2 block on my main water cooled system..
