waterproof epoxy resin?
I need some waterproof glue for my first watercooling project, im cooling a k6 with a beer bottle. :D i havnt tried anything with water before, but acording to random nonsense ordinary epoxy doesnt like water. Can anyone recomend a good brand, and where am i likely to be able to find it? <im in the UK btw>

Spode has some epoxy putty that is waterproof, Its ugly stuff though. Ask him where he got it! he might even send you some if you ask him really nicely!

I went to ace hardware and picked up some waterproof epoxy for my res. It looks exactly like the normal 2 part epoxy but costs a little more. So far the epoxy seems to be holding up fine. I used it to make a small clear res that attaches directly to my Maxi-Jet 1200. I used a pop bottle cap for a screw on lid. I needed something small since I am confined by my Micro ATX case. I am so happy I decided to make a res for this thing. To fill the system all I do is squirt water in with a water bottle. No more bleeding for me!

Epoxy Putty is great stuff, they repair sinks with it. And you can handle it like play-dough.

I had a bad habit of putting far too much on, making it look ugly. But hell, you can paint it!
