    Yes Water cooling kit is also custom made, Cpu block from Mb-chipset heatsink + acrylic sheets, pump from old printer head motor (HP-640 inkjet)and Radioter from old machinary with some type of oil cooling from local scrap yard.

    Thanks for your reply

    Which coolant are you using? It looks somewhat opaque. Is that an automotive coolant?

    Yes it is automotive coolant, but concentrated to 50/50 ratio with distilled water.

    Since automotive coolant are good in heatexchange but when concentrated in 50/50 ratio it is best for Water cooling Kits for Pc.

    Thanks

    It sure is, just watch out for its corrosive effect on the tubing.

    My aluiminium heatsink is having "Silver Flash" coating on it. Radiator is full copper. I am using high temp and pressure handing tubes.

    Accouding to Galvanic table and all galvanic corrosion calculations between coolent composition and two metals( aluminium & Copper) results in a lifetime period of more then 70 years.

    long time..................So no worry of galvanic corrosion

    At last yesterday I had some free time to clean my PC and water cooling Setup. Here are few pics for the process.
    De-assembling the dusty case.
    [​IMG]

    Components:
    [​IMG]

    Removing the water cooling setup:

    [​IMG]

    Dusty radiator. Many members of different forums were asking me about this radiator..Now everyone can see the manufacturer’s logo still alive and speaking loud about the quality of the product.
    [​IMG]

    Re-assembling you can see all the cable management in action with three SATA power connectors in line. No cable mess.
    [​IMG]

    All fans cleaned and radiator washed.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Radiator and HDD’s in place.
    [​IMG]

    Connecting New pipes and optical drives.
    [​IMG]

    All assembled. The best cable management possible for me…
    [​IMG]

    Night mode.

    Hope you like it… If you have any suggestion regarding making this case neater or better say cool, then you are most welcome..

    Thanking

    Very nicely done.

    You know I'm pretty certain some members would probably buy custom made water cooling parts from you, those who don't have access/can't afford brand parts.

    Perhaps something to think about : ]
