    DAMM H2O equipment

    Where can I get equipment for a H20 cooler? I realise i can't buy a water block in my standard computer store or a radiator from an electronics store. How much all up could i expect to pay 2 build a cheap H2O cooler?

    You can find waterblocks online, and you can find radiators at car part stores. Small transmission fluid coolers seem to work well. You can find pumps at home improvement stores, and the tubing to connect the parts.

    I'd say you should figure at least $70 for a real basic setup using decent components. You could probably do it for less but I think you'd see a big difference in quality.

    Good Luck

    Get a 100GPH or better pump, submersible or inline would be a selection you'd have to make. But submersibles are easier to work with, although you will need room for a water tank.
    The pump has to be certified for 24H usage, you wouldn't want your pump to stop and make your cpu cook now would you
    The hose connector should be around 10mm in diameter for a decent waterflow.
