and then seal the chamber, add your fittings and stuff, make a bracket to go with your cpu/gpu and then take it from there. who knows, in a while you may have a business based on it, if it sells well and of course performs
me and a bud built a couple way back in the day, we had issues mating the two pieces together lol for no leaks.
I was actually thinking about that the other day. If maybe I could build a successful waterblock, maybe I can start selling. I mean, I have all the right tools and machines and everything!
The thing is, how can I achieve the lowest temperature possible? I've thought about drilling a maze kind of thing from the sides of the block- I hope you know what I mean-, and filling the holes back up, so I don't have to worry about bonding pieces of copper together and worry about leaking. But I'm not sure if that would work. Know any waterblocks made like that?
If anyone wants to have their waterblock idea made (actually, anything that involves cutting metal for that matter), I can definitely make it and ship it to you for a very small price!
