I have decided to crack on with another build after my last one ended so unsatisfactorily. Rather than continue with attempting to passively cool my gaming PC I will take the simpler option and watercool. My plan is to end up with a small, compact fully watercooled PC. I am hoping to stay under a completely arbitrary 1 gallon limit. (1 UK gallon is ~4.55L). So I start out with a sheet of 3mm aluminium With a bit of drilling, some tapping and some amazing little cubes it can stand up all on its own. Some measuring, a bit more drilling and tapping plus some stand-offs may give you an idea of whats coming up shortly. Ahhh, look a little donor board for playing around with. Isnt it soo pretty. Why are you taking the heatsink off you may ask? Its now all starting to take shape. However I dont like the fact the ram will block all airflow across the board. So its time to swap the donor board for an alternative and we have something a bit more interesting! Obviously as we are talking about liquid volumes we need some water cooling in there. Added to the board is a CPU block / pump from a Fractal Design Kelvin CLC. If im using a CPU block I also need a radiator! Given the size of the build I will be using a dual 80mm rad. And thats where I am up to. I have a GPU waterblock in the post and the rest of the pieces for the case is on order. Questions, thoughts, feedback?
