    I'm jealous!

    I've made a waterblock (99,9% copper) for my slot1 PIII using just an electrical drill like this one:



    Inside waterblock:



    Result (unpolished) after soldering -using my kitchen gas-stove:



    So it is possible to make a waterblock without pro equipment.

    Your pictures aren't working, but Good effort all the same. It's not impossible with a hand drill just harder and far more possibility of screwing it all up at any stage.

    I've moved on btw try making this with your hand drill then =)

    I am working on trying to make a pseudo drill press that will allow me to drill "somewhat straight." I may just go and see if the school I attend will allow me to use their equipment.

    Hey you know what your copper on aluminum looks very close to what I am thinking of doing. Actually I have prototypes made from Plastic and copper sheets. I may have a pic around too.

    Nice work.

    Heya all, if you want to see agustus's pics go to these locations.

    It looks like you soldered aluminum to copper? Is that what you did or what cause the close up of the inside of the core looks like aluminum but the top looks like copper.

    Next question, how did it work?

    No that doesn't work, they are not pic urls, (no image tag name). It's some default message from one of those lame image hosting sites that won't allow linking. Trouble is it's in Double Duch so we can't understand it

    augustus just mail me the pics and I'll host them if it's easier.

    Hey Blade...is there any COMMON liquid (not LN2 lol) that I can use in my new watercooling system. I have a 66gph and a cool idea for my waterjacket. Flow rate does not matter the least bit. I know there have to be some liquids better than water to cool a system with. Maybe alcohol? I've thought about mercury but then remembered all the negatives (like its toxic, expensive, hard to get lol). My main things right now are water, distilled water, alcohol, or some type of oil. I don't know if the oil would ruin my pump though. Any help from any of you? Thanks!

    There's nothing much better than water. There are additives (like waterwetter) that claim to improve the thermal transfer abilities of water - but I doubt it makes any noticeable difference.

    Adding ethylene glycol antifreeze will prevent corrosion...but it, too, can degrade the thermal transfer properties of water.

    Alcohol has been tried already - it didn't work very well

    Use distilled water over tap water if you can, I used water from my artisen well, (which is drinking quality), but fairly hard. I have around 30 Gallons in my system 10 of which is glycol based antifreeze.

    ol'man

    Was the first thing I tried when they were not visable to me, but whatever I do I get this message.



    Probably my ISP, but don't worry I wont loose any sleep over it

    For the hot pics try these links then. Maybe they will work.

    before he soldered it together....

    after...
    http://hhrol.50g.com/eeaatesohhe.jpg

    It appears that he used aluminum and copper. I was just wondering how it worked. Not as graceful looking as your blocks but still may be affective. Would like to know how they worked if you didn't scare him off

    A rather late reaction, because I lost this url. And always trouble with those pictureservers, so a new try.
    _________________________________________

    It's all pure copper, but my webcam can't handle the shiny surface: it's NOT aluminium.

    Drilled with a electric handdrill (and blunt!)


    Unpolished result:


    Like I said soldered on my kitchen gasstove!

    It's for a PIII-500 slot1.
    I had drilled four holes in the corner to mount it. But two of these holes leaked from the inside. So I cut 4 pieces of 4mm coppertube, drilled the holes a bit larger, and soldered the tubes inside the holes, thus stopping the leaking.
    It's running now for 1 year without problems.
    Total cost of my watercooling: about 25~30 dollar COMPLEET (block, fan, pump, copper radiator, hose).



    I also build a simple Harddisk cooler.
    The design:


    This tube fits between two harddrives:


    The ugly result:


    I actually haven't soldered the coppertube onto the copper sideplates (yet).
    And I want to build the drives INSIDE a soundproof box: that's why I have them watercooled.

    Two drives in summer never going over 34 degrees celcius with the tube just in series with CPU-block.

    Does that hard drive cooler work effectively?
    I dont know... I just dont.
