need water cooling links...

well, i have been thinking about trying water cooling for some time, but i currently have one big problem, cash

anyhow, im looking for guides on how to do water cooling as cheaply (or if you must "ghettoly") as possibly, i already know i can use a car heater core for a radiator (or, i may try making one of those "evaporative" thingies) and a fish tank or somthing similar for a resivour, but whats the cheapest way to go about making/sourcing processor, gpu and northbridge blocks, as well as the pump?

anything i missed btw?

Check the link on the direct die water block in my siggy. It might be a little too hard-core for you, but it was fun.

cool, but could you link me to the site you found out how to do it on please?

edit: i dont get whats so special about them?, also, wouldnt it be possible to just turn a ordinary heatsink into a water block? i dont see why not, or perhaps one of those old p2 heat sinks?

You might look here for a cheap and effective water block. Pumps are very cheap and hobby or pet shops.

You can do it the way that I did and just use used parts. Mine cost me under $100 and I've had it running for years.

im hoping to get this done for £20-£30, not unrealisitic if i make my own cross water block, ill probabally make a cross drilled one and piggy pack on a emergency standard HSF in case it all goes west

Just to let you know that I am using a design close to the copper cap in the link, a heater core that cost me about $25, and a pump I got from ebay for 20 shipped. I have been running this for almost 2 years and I only have ~$50 into it. It keeps my rig cool....(see Sig)
