i need some help getting some parts for my home made water cooling system
i plan on makeing me two beehive water blocks i allready have the 2*4*3/8 in copper plate but i have looked at homedepot and i couldnt find copper nails or the 2 in copper caps any ideas where i can get them?

i have the pump its a rio 600 its rated at 30 gal/hr at 3 ft but im gonna but a bypass valve on it to slow that down the line going to the cpu will split and one side will go back to the water tight junction box and i will have a valve so i can change the ammount of water going to the blocks with out adding presure to the pump. i plan on haveing two water blocks one for my duron 650 and one for my geforce ddr as for the raditor im gonna trade two nic and some cable to a friend for the condensor coils out of a window mount A/C unit that he found. the project isgoing to cost more that i planed on spending but when i get it done its gonna kick some major *** :)
the pins were actually 12 ga. solid copper wire and the caps were 1 1/2" not 2" I got it all at home depot so I'm sure they got it ,,also you prolly wont need to lower the flow rate ,,I use a 90gph pump and its not overkill , also you might try making a "tidehive for your Geforce ,,the beehive would take 3or4 PCI slots on any board ,,good luck and e-mail me if you need anymore help :)
