Water Cooled Raspberry Pi




Water-cooled raspberry pi?!?!

Some of you might think “awesome!”, others may think “why bother?” I did it for several reasons:

  • Because I can!
  • It looks cool on my desk
  • I want to overclock it so that I have the fastest raspberry pi on the internet! (also falls into “Because I can!”

    Absolutely gorgeous, will be really awesome if filled with a flurescent red liquid.
    Whoever says that there is no need for such a thing is being ridiculous, these projects are simply just to prove something can be done, and you my friend, have done it well!

    Nice build. I like how you made it look kind of like the T virus containers from Resident Evil.

    Thanks for the compliments! I agree about the fluoro red coolant, that would probably look awesome!

    Yeah it does look like a T-Virus vessel! good spot!

    Hi I love this!!!!! Where can I find those water cooling blocks?? Anyone?? Thank you!!!!

    1. James Finniss

      Hi Morgan, thanks for the feedback! I bought the blocks from alphacool.com they are called MCX One

      http://www.alphacool.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=mcx%20one&

      But they can be made REALLY easily at home too with nothing but a drill and some soldering skills.. I have made several custom water cooling blocks for things like my 3D printer since this project.

    Don’t mean to brink up an old thread but what might be the pump you are using looks a lot better than ones I found on net so far

    Thanks
