    Water cooling

    In a water cooling system for a socket 370 celeron, what do you buy that goes over the processor? I just realized I didnt know what to get to put over the prcessor when I went to Lowes and to the pet store to buy parts.

    Their website said "Requires Linux Distrubution based on kernel 2.4.2 or better," so I went and installed FreeBSD.

    Have u got a web page and digital camera, jopey??? if so post how u make them. I take its drilling holes for the input and output with holes with capped ends for the sink, if not tell me how u do it.

    Ps. use copper its much better than aluminium at conducting heat (hence the name!!!)

    copper is way harder to machine than alluminium that is why it isnt used as much

    also aluminium radiates heat better than cooper
    i dont know what this is like in water though

    theres a good experiment for you jopey!

    Copper is up to 70% more efficient at conducting heat than aluminium.
    I dont know where u heard your rumor, the main reason Copper is'nt used in off the shelf heatsinks is cost and weight.
