    In the end there are allways some stuff i'll have to buy already made...the pump, the fittings, the tubes - these ones i have...hehehe - , the reservoir i can build on my own...even if i have to have a plastic bottle.But i'll try and find a transparent tube.Today i saw my next aquisition, The Dremel tool, i didn't bought but it's on hold until i get more comfortably "cashed".

    And got a few small improvments for the block and since i'm aquiring the dremel i will refine and stylize the block, and start thinking on the NB waterblock.

    I wanted to cool the ram too, but is a little more complicated, so if i have the time to update the block today i'll post here the photos.

    Hi guys, back again...

    For 12€ i bouht this nice piece :

    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/tiago_1980/images/watercooling/pict0001w.jpg
    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/tiago_1980/ima.../pict0002w.jpg

    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/tiago_1980/ima.../pict0007w.jpg

    The cigarrette is just for scaling purposes...I've made a little night raid in search of some scrap piece of acrilic in a with no luck, tomorrow once again i'll have a trip to the local junkyard and try to find a radiator that fits my needs and specially fits my skinny wallet.On sunday i'll (or maybe tomorow) be cutting this motherfu.. down in two pretty 6cm squares (i think i'll have one for testing and experiment, try and do a simple block with it, then make the real one)and still have 8 more to do what ever i please...(been thinking NB!!).
    So maybe only on monday i'll be posting some more if i have updates
    , because i have to wait now until the end of the month for €€€ to buy the dremel tool i saw.

    Sorry for the crap pics, the damn machine sucks big time...

    An uncle of mine is bringging some actillic sheets from work, they even have unbreakable ones.I have lots of teflon sheets 1mx1m....the question is, can i make the top from it?I'm afraid that the teflon is not good enough to make the job, and also i would like to have a transparent top so that i can se the water flowing, hehehe...

    Does anybody have an idea on this - using teflon to make the top ?

    I have this so far, made it with the dremel.I haven't give the plastic a try but i have it with me already, acrylic and teflon, and just finished ordering he radiator and the 1/2" barbs....

    Does anyone have any idea on how to make way for the barbs in the acrylic sheet ?

    Hope to have some feedback...

    it looks like some ancient relic you'd find in an episode of Stargate

    I honestly think you're a bit mad, but i can't wait to see this tested, i hope you have a normal block to hand so you can see how this thing performs against a retail block.

    Don't expect great things here, i'd be stunned if its not 20c off a decent retail block.

    I'm agree with Jameson but I'm giving you an A for the afford though.

    Making bards out from the acrylic sheet? Are you gone mad Mr. Engineer? BUY IT! only under $5.00 each and chromed too.

    As I mentioned it before, you do need proper machinery to do this. Hand held power tools will get the job done but the results won't be the same. No matter how handy you are. Don't get me wrong here. I do like DYI projects but I learned from the experience that sometimes it's not worth it.

    This is my idea how to make the bards from acrylic: Find a solid acrylic pipe (I bet you can figure it out about the requirement for the measurement), cut it to size, bore the inside core, use die tap tool to make threads. Is this shred light for you?

    Anyway, hopefully you will complete the project and post the test results.

    I bought the barbs, the question is how to make way for them im the acrylic...i don't know the name in english...open the screw holes ???

    Well, due to financial issues this project will have to hold a bit longer as i don't have money for the pump, i'm going for this...i think is a D5?!? or this one, is a bit cheaper but it goes with 3/8" barbs...with 1/2" everithing i think is restricting the flow right from the start.

    BTW i'm going for a T-line, my case is not that big and if the reservoir is not bringing anything in performance well.....for crappy performance i already have my rustic waterblock.

    I will try and make the NB block, as i have a lot of leftovers from the copper, i just have to unmount the pc to measure the space it takes and dimensions for the block....

    I believe it calls Tap & Die, you need a complete set to get the job done. It's kinda expensive tool, a little bit more than a good water block. I never use this tool before. Therefore, I can't give you any tip on this.
    to see if you can find it.

    The MCP655 is a good one, the same one I'm using. It is a highflow pump. It has 5 difference settings for the flow rate and it's very quiet at high speed too.

    The DDC12v Plus is a step down from the above pump. If you are limited space in your case then you should use this one. The MCP655 is bigger.

    In my opion, a reservoir will increase the volume of the coolant. A high volume of the coolant the less time it heat up. Correct me if I'm wrong?
    Once again, no space then you don't need to use it. This is not a necessary item.
