    Irregular WC setup required -comments, help-

    I would like to watercool my shuttle, I wouldnt normally ask for help, but this is different. My shuttle has an internal 500w atx power supply in it (they fit) and I only have ~4cm from the processor to the psu. I can get away with air cooling because the ICE bends at an L and I have rotated the ICE and modded my shuttle so I have a 120mm fan internally cooling my shuttle. If you didnt spot it, my problem is, I don't have a lot of room heighwise for a cpu block. The only cpu block I have seen that would work out is this and I dont want to use that. With a bit of looking I found that this gpu block is ideal aside from it being made for a video card. So here is where I need help, does anyone know of annother waterblock (3/8) that would work out, assuming I could get it mounted, would the dangerden product cool my cpu properly?

    If it matters, these are the other parts I want to use.

    How hard would it be to make my own waterblock, made specifically for my senario, would you recomend it?

    I don't know if you're considering ordering from frozenCPU, but you can get better prices at www.dangerdenstore.com

    Instead of making a whole new block, could you make your own hold down bracket that would fit the lugs on the socket?

    Its not that the case is small, Its that I only have 4 cm from the processor to the psu, and normal waterblocks wont fit in the tight area.

    the 500w atx is not stock I assume.

    Stick the stock back in, you should get some good OCs on it.

    or get someone to measure the distance on the screw holes for the Maze 4 that fits on the 6800 cards. It might just be the right distance. I would measure mine but i sold it But i know the holes are preety far apart might have to mod the screws a little but i think it might work.
