DIY water cool ram heatspread
water will pass through the 30x15mm aluminium block
cut to size and need to drill some holes with 9mm drill bit then tape with 10mm tapper for the barbs.
drilling holes so deep is not easy and no way i can do it with hand drill.
when to a fren's workshop to use his drill bench and spend more then 2hr for 4 holes.
holes are done
this is how it will be with the ram in it
so now i only got to fix the side onto the block with screw and nut
tape the thread for the barbs and my ram are water cool.
taping the thread
Barbs are on and now lick test
all right after a long hot sunny afternoon got one done
and still working on the other one.
this is how it looks like on my Mobo
final update and its up and runing
damn ugly got to think of another way to make a nice nice pair with acrylic
Nice work Kelvan ... I would have liked to seen the block taped and screws other than the self threading ones to the angles as well but over all I'd say you did a good job ... how snug is the fit on the memory, would a retainer on the angle help apply more pressure to the memory ... of course some stats on the cooling would be nice ....
very nice , did you ever think of making one block that holds 4 dimms and how think the metal is between the dimms and the water it self or you could and fins in the water hole of the block sorry just day dreaming very cool though
What is the performance like? Can you OC your memory more than with a normal fan blowing over your memory?
just make this pair for fun and never expect that it can perform well.
sad to say that never gain more then 5mhz
but do enjoy the fun of making it
