External Water Cooling system?

Recommended Posts

My HTPC has always had alot of heat and ive spent a couple bills for numerous amounts of fan and they still dont do the trick. I finally want to turn to water cooling but my HTPC is way to small as it is and cant fit a thing. SO i was wondering if there were any external systems that just run the tubes into the computer for the GPU and CPU then back out into the main unit ? Any help would be great thanks!

Alot of heat from a E7300? Maybe you should look at some aftermarket aircooler before going water?

Not much room for a decent air cooler in a tiny HTPC.

Do have the room in your cabinet (assuming you have this in a cabinet or on a shelf) for another component?

 

Your best bet would be to gut a similar looking case (even an old receiver or anything really) and mount the water cooling stuff in that.

Build a radiator into the back of that "component" that exhausts out the back, it should be extremely simple.

Then just route the water lines through the back and into your htpc.
