Can you solder copper to aluminium water block?

Also does the size of the tubing make any differences. I was thinking about using 1/4" tubing.

I am gonna go with solid copper cooling pipes in my computer then outside I will use regular plastic type hose...Gonna run my tranny cooler a long way from the computer, copper would get expensive.


Hopefully this will stop any leaks that could form inside the case.

I would have to say no. In theory u should be able to but it is very dificult, u should be able to get some auto fittings that may help but there should be some regular plumbers fittings such as tank connecters that have gasgits, and with silicone bath sealant have never leaked on me.

ps. u may want to insulate the copper pipes condensations may be a problem if u cool your water too much.
