Has anyone seen the article about making a silver orb into a water jacket? if so please tell me I saw it a while ago and now I can't find it.
that is what i am doing to my Gorb today.
I'll geta water block once i am bored of the Gorb and need something new to work on...

The only diff i was thinking is not a strait hole through the orb, but at 2 angles so that more water will be in the heatsink at a time....

the worst that can happen is GORB dies, and so does Celeron 2 ....
the best, it works :)

let you knowhow it turns out
Thanx for the info. I've been wanting to try this ever since i got my crome orb. If you find any other info it would be much appreciated. I found out that it would be very hard if not impossible to make a 3/8" hole for the water to run through. Iwas looking to get as much flow as possible. Any Ideas????
