    watercool psu

    I have just finish my water setup on my case. I am watercooling my cpu, gpu, chipset and psu (I wanted a quiet system). Now my problem is that I only cool the mofset in the psu, i'm not cooling any other components, so I am wondering if that could cause a problem, as some of the components seems to heat up.

    Only the mosfet? You mean all the voltage regulators and mosfets etc that are attached to the PSU heatsink, or are u actualy thinking of only a single one? I will also be watercooling my PSU, probably monday, so I'll post pics once I do it.

    yea, i mean all the voltage regulator/mofset that were attached to the heatsink, i actually replace the heatsink with a wb (kind of).

    Have any drawings of what kind of waterblock you want to make? I was thinking of using a copper plate soldered to a pipe, the pice going down one side, turning and coming back for the other plate. This seems like the easiest way. I've seen a few how-to's on the net on how other people have done it this way. Can't find the links right now, I will post them if I do.

    i already made it, the axact way you describe it, a plate with a copper tube on top of it. now my question is, will the other components, like the transformer (?), overheat without a fan?

    Can everyone please post links to every watercooled powersupply worklog/tutorial they can find on the web? Maybe we can get them all in one place:

    Here's two to start with:

    Rainwulf - website sometimes doesn't work

    Monitor the temps for a while. I've seen some people that attach a small chunk of copper, kinda like a heatsink to their transformer. And others that didn't do anything. Apparently there's also sometimes a coi that can get hot. Can you post some pics? Or do you have a webpage? Thanks.

    Here's two more at Digitalexplosion (bottom of page in watercooling section):

    I'm still trying to find the article where they put a connection from the waterblock to the hot coil and the transformer. BUt it looks like most people don't do that and it seeems to work

    In this one, he added some cooling to the transformer as well.
    "To cool the transformator also, I glued two small copper plates, from the trafo to the copper tube"

    One more interesting (if hard to read) webpage for cooling computers including power supplied with no fans at all
