    Did you ever pick up one? Just found out Micro center carries them in stock!

    Why did I read that in Johnny from Airplane's voice? For those of you that are too young to get the joke... http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/d35c61f4b0/the-best-of-johnny-from-airplane-from-airplanefan

    The rad is the basically the res, I dont think the heat will be a problem in the loop. But if it does then I will have to make a mark two and build a tiny rad! xD

    Thankyou my good man! :)

    Yeah get building guys!
    Plating is all done, collecting tonight. :)

    I am reading it like that now, cheers Barry! xD

    UPDATE 2 - 12/04/13 ----> 24ct GOLD

    Update full of gold, got these back from the platters yesterday.
    There are a few blemishes on the inside of the res but its not to serious, I will put the coolant in and see if they still show up. If so I will get them stripped and redone.

    Dude !!! Those blocks are awesome. Is it the top LH corner that has the blemish on the plating ?

    I have no clue how you will put all these parts together. -Chrome hardlines?:lol: Now that I think of it, it wouldn't be to hard to use brake line tubing here.

    I found those teeny tiny blocks as well. I'd love to find a use for something like this. Perhaps for cooling my gamecube - Load ass fan annoys me.

    Wow, wow, wow and wow!!

    This really does put my pi solutions to shame. They're sitting on a bit of cardboard behind various TVs and one's wired in to the top draw of my desk!

    Great build man!! 15 more days, can't wait to see the final result!

    I agree.. (Hopefully) :worried:

    Thankyou mate.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have a teaser photo of me testing the pump. It has a really good flow rate, much faster then I would have thought from such a tiny pump.

    The project will be coming to an end sadly. As we only have 7 days to get our projects finished!

    Il update soon with some more pictures of the assembly.

    That looks absolutely great! The dimensions/proportions of that pump are dead on for the size of the Pi! Also very curious how you will mount the res!

    One thing I noticed though: Don't forget to think about this rule of the compo...would be a dead shame if for such a silly reason you wouldn't be able to enter...

    It depends of course on how everything will be put together, but from this image it almost appears if one of the mounting holes will not be accessible...

    Thanks matey! :D

    I have spoken to Combatus about the mounting holes as I need on free to hold the waterblock on the board.

    He said "Hi Phame. The screw that secures the waterblock to the Pi - does it pass through the board into the waterblock? If so that's fine. Otherwise, the only issue would be if the board possibly rotates by accident, but so long as you take some sort of action to prevent this, I suppose it's okay!"

    So think it will be fine! :D

    By the way, well done on PiQu fella its such a beautiful build!!
