Default ghetto w/c idea (may not be original)

A guy at work mentioned something as I was talking about how I am w/cing my rig.

"why not just run off the faucet"

And I got to thinking, hmmmmm. Irrisponsible, maybe, but would it work?

My cold water runs between 5-10C, and as that is much less than a w/c setup because there is no heat being recirculated, the flow rate can be much less.

So, has it been done? faucet-pressure/flow reducer (or just crack the faucet less)-CPU block, drain?

I know the water isn't clean etc, but its funny cause it may work, and is pretty much free if your water isnt metered (mine isnt).
