    Smile Custom Watercooling in BD

    I just thought of building a custom watercooling solution for my years old Core 2 Duo E7200 to see if I can pull this some more time with moderate overclocking (I've once put it to 3.8GHz and was stable until the temps reached 107 degree Celsius and I pulled the plug). It's sort of an anti-boredom project, although if the overclocking is successful, it might clear the CPU bottleneck I'm having until I upgrade. I plan to put only the CPU block inside the case and everything else on a separate box which can be disconnected and carried separately everytime I travel to home. I wanted to buy a good CPU block and maybe a pump and then build everything else from scrap. So, if any of you have any idea for this, please share.

    I didn't have any good idea about watercooling components before. With first dig through "world wide web" I lost hope with the prices of CPU blocks. They are too high, 60-80$ average. The closest thing I could find near the budget of an anti boredom project was an OCZTHYDF HydroFlow HF-MK1 @ 20$ on amazon. Then there came the prices of pumps. But I found some very low priced pumps and radiators by a seller named Lightobjects on amazon, but not sure if they can meet the requirements. But I could also use other custom solutions readily available at BD as it will be outside the case, and may be separately powered, and doesn't need complete leak proof guarantee.

    a good custom water cooling kit will cost you around 100 pounds (13,000 taka) + tax, transport cost etc. so are you sure about custom wc kit?

    I could, only if it was a serious project. But also, if it takes over 70$ for only the block, why shouldn't I go with corsair hydro series instead? Also, how much difference is between better blocks like Apogee HD or XSPC Raystorm and low end blocks like this OCZ HydroFlow one? I don't have any clear idea about it. Thanks for the comment.

    Actually I was trying to make it myself, something like minitt vai done here. I want to get the CPU block as it will be the only part inside the case and I don't want to risk leaking water inside there.

    I suggest you buy a good block, the more outdated a block is- the more it suffers from performance. But at that price you can also get a Corsair H60 right? But it's not worth the money, for the mediocre performance from these LCS. Get an Antec Kuhler 620, MSRP is around $49.

    We have good lathes and shaper machines in our university machine shop, as well as grinding and polishing facilities. I can use them to make the block myself if I want. But I want to buy one because I do not want to risk any leaking inside the case, and also don't have good knowledge about which design may give best heat transfer and water flow. Also, finding corrosion resistant alloys with good heat transfer is a matter.

    I once considered Sealed LCS like the Kuhler or H60 or Siberian Tiger. But then thought of custom one for two reasons, one is the fun of making the system, and another is, I have to go home every vacation with my PC, direct journey from Khulna to Chittagong by bus. So, I use a small midtower case and it can not house any good Air cooler or LCS. A detachable custom cooler might be better, but I also want to keep the cost low.

    I'll be studying about the block a little bit more, to see how much extra performance I might get with better ones considering all the other parts will be made by me. can you suggest good websource of forums, except for plain googling?
