Adapting a Thermalright SK6 heatsink for watercooling. — Terry Miller

Your site inspired me to try a water mod on my own. I received a damaged Thermalright SK6 and decided that I couldn’t hurt it any more. So I created this water cooling mod after learning about water cooling from your site. I called it my “Winchester Double Barrel Water Cooling Mod”.


On the inside I made an “S” curve from one of the inward barrel ends to flow the water across the area directly above the
CPU> There is a baffle on the other side to help prevent any vortices while exiting.


Here’s the SK6 before:


The areas marked in blue were trimmed to fit the pipe’s contour.


I don’t have results yet but will post them when I do.
