Self Contained Water Cooled System
After visiting many great water-cooled project pages I decided it was my turn to give it a try. The only problem was that I did not like the idea of having a big fish tank outside of my computer. It did not look very pleasing, so I decided that my water-cooled project was going to be different that the rest of the gang. First I had to decide on the case for the project. This was not as easy as it sounds. There are many problems with building a water-cooled system with the water IN the system:
· Lots of extra components needed to fit in this case
· Very dangerous for the computer parts inside
· Lack of space within most cases
· I did not want a full tower (I wanted to build it as compact and as sleek as possible.
Since I have been selling computers for a while I knew a lot about cases (I also am a little bit of a computer nut). So I started my search. The most important factor that I was looking for was width, due to all the components that needed to fit in the case. I chose the case that I had used on my other systems due to its great design and extra width
AFTER doing some measurements it looked like things were going to fit in :-) Next was the motherboard. Motherboard
I looked at three of my favorites (Asus P2B, Aopen AX6BC, Abit BH6,BX6) I have the Asus and the Aopen and for this project the Abit offered some advantages that Asus and Aopen did not "voltage manipulation". So I got the Abit BH6, it was perfect for this project - the BX6 was great too but my supplier did not have any. Time was a big factor in this project; I only had 5 days to build it so I was not going to wait for any parts to come in.

These are the main items used in the project, but there was lots of extra items that I have not mentioned (i.e epoxy, silicon....)
