I think this sh$%¨waterblock is not trusty and will probably leak. What do you think?

Hy Guys.. I ´m building a watercooling system, in Brazil But here we have to make everything from sand and dust... Í´ve a car core heater radiator (Ok).. An aquarium pump sealed in a acrilic made reseivour (Ok) Tubes... 120mm 12v fan... But the dam waterblock... There are no metal stores :-( I cant drill nothing! I made a waterblock from a heatsink and sealed side and cover with another aluminium pieces but sealed with silicone.... The case is that it´s big ugly and I´m in test fase and when submersed.. There´s always a new hole to be fixed...

I ask: Have anyone tryed this method here? Am i losing time with something that will be forever dangerous and leak proned... SOmething that you wouldn´t use no way if you were in a situation like mine..? :(

I wan´t to buy a tidal pool (My radiator is aluminium) but haven´t found some store that shipps to me and seems to add an extra cost, but seems good answer...

What type of CPU are you using?

If your using an Intel s370 type CPU maybe you should consider some form of direct die cooling. All you would have to do is epoxy a 1-1/2" PVC cap on top of the CPU and drill some holes in it, and screw some fittings in to it.

Just an Idea.

OhYeah, master Jeff! I´ve had a similar idea, but instead of epoxy straight in th cpu cap, epoxy in a copper coldplate... Ihave two and one will be spare, may try with one... Something like beheeves from Joe... Need to find someone who may be able to soldering on copper and not overcharge me.... What do you think about the jurassik one i described above: Would you trust? in just silicone sealing?
