You should be able to get Eheim pumps from aquatics places, possibly garden centeres.

I bought mine from www.aquaticsonline.co.uk
You can probably find a US equavalent.

Im not sure that a freezer would be much better, there still not designed to cope with constant load.

Surleyjoe had three fridges for a project, I wonder what he did with em, maybee he has some ideas.

I think I am just going to try this. I have a DD5 so I can monitor the temp of the water and all, and if it gets too high it can beep at me.

What about sealing the motherboard? How can I do that easily?

Here's an image of what I am thinking about, basicly. I hope you can understand it!

If your still thinking about pumping cold water through your waterblock then there is no easy way of insulating.

If your water is at ambient temperature then no need for insulation (but worse performance)

I can give you the basics but im no expert.

The idea is to insulate the cold bits from the air to prevent condenasation forming.

neoprene (closed cell) foam is good, neatly wrap the waterblock in it and fix it with plumming goop.
Put a square of neoprene under the CPU and seal up inside the socket (poking the in socket thermister through).

You need to stop condensation on the CPU pins, covering them with vasaline or some sort of gell stuff (i forgett the exact name)

You will probably want to put some extra neoprene around the socket, and possibly stick some to the back of the board.

Then you need to insulate all the tubing (central heating insulation maybee ?)

Allot of it will depend on the waterblock your using, the more times you do it the better you will get at it.

You will probably find it helpfull to ask the guys at www.tekforums.co.uk about insulating waterblocks and your overall plan, they have one of the best watercooling forums around.

That looks ok.

Im not sure if your going to need the first two coils...that will depend on the water temperature exiting the block.

The temperature drop in the waterblock wont be very much (2*c max) its keeping the water temperature constant thats the difficult bit.

You will have to add some anti freese (glycol) to the water to stop it freesing, and to stop stuff growning in it.
