Everything cept the dvd drive can be WC'd. Google it, there are parts for WCing hard drives, water-cooled PSUs, etc.

Better get a pump/reservoir combo to ensure the pump were water cooled too.

Don't you need to buy special pre-fitted from the factory for watercooling? I wonder if anyone has mountings to watercool an SSD.. I know there are for 3.5" drives.

Why not just do an oil-submerged rig? And yes, you can WC a DVD drive - big flat block applied to the bottom (somehow).

You can, just get a HDD block and apply it to the bottom of the drive. You'll have to use some thermal cement though.
