    Umm, maybe for small things that don't really need cooling, but I wouldn't go making something for your CPU unless you have a CNC machine or something.

    Well, if he happens to have a CNC machine lying around in his house I bet he'll be able to make one... ;) It all depends on what you have lying around? I'm sure you can make a copper block if you really want to... You just need alotta time and alotta guts to put only that on your CPU! :D Then, leaking is another problem. But you don't really need CNC to make a working copper block. And then I don't think you have peltier components lying around so... Then there's always that old fridge lying around eh? Bet you were thinkin' about that. I wouldn't recommend it. Too much hassle to avoid condensation. So I think you can be creative and check around the web if they have any other projects as yours. It seems to me like a challenge! :D Good luck.

    Hehe, already seen that one... But who wants to pour liquid nitrogen into a tube every few minutes just to keep his CPU cool? :confused: Nope, can't think that'll work. I'm very interested in the fact that you can make a tank full of non-electrically conductive thermal liquid and keep your pc totally submerged in it! That would be great if you could decrease the temp of that liquid to something like -20C or so... Instant extreme cooler!! But WAAAAAAAYYYY too expensive for mortals. ;)

    You're weird, I don't know who DOESN'T use the ol' liquid nitrogen trick these days!

    Hehe. LOL. That explains why my CPU runs 200C warmer than you guys'!

    hm u can somethin u have to have:
    a cooper block
    something to work on cooper (dremel multitool ect)
    then a fan and some time then u will be avle to make a proper cooper block for your cpu or gpu
    but for the thin holds on mainboard use the holes in the mainboard dont goes for (scratches?) "klammern"
    then u can build something like the zalmann cooler

    Woah, what's all strapped on there?!? I can make out a fan or two but what type of sink to you use? Or is it just aluminium plate? Looks terrible yes, but very unique! ;)

    It's 2 aluminium plates :D

    I know it looks like shite but the tools we used for this was the following:

    One sock.
    One shitty saw.
    One drawer (full of socks.)

    Hence the quality 8)

    At least it cooled like hell! :D

    Hehe. Well, if it works then it's fine! :D I've tried everything from an old athlon 900 fan and sink to homemade ramsinks out of a pentium1 heatsink... But none prove to be very efficient. No better overclocking and I don't know what's the temps so I can't really tell... :p

    Josef> That might because it IS ghetto 8)

    And what on earth is xoxide? And fans? It already has 2 or 3 fans ;)
    2 from a celeron and p4 cpu, and one från a p2 ;D

    I think he was kidding when he asked what Xoxide is.

    Hehe. Yeah, you never know... Since he's into the ghetto, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't know what xoxide is? ;)
