  1. Hi there,

    My name is Elliott and this is the first watercooling project I have ever undertaken

    No pressure there then!

    My Scratch build is based around the immensely popular Raspberry Pi.

    Inspired by the amazing efforts of Phame ( and his watercooled R-Pi I first intended to make my own version of the watercooling loop he used.

    As watercooling an R-Pi is pretty much overkill anyway, I tried to think of other ways I could make my cooling system even more extreme whilst retaining some form of 'practicality'.

    A few of the things I wanted to change and/or add were:

    Waterblock - More water channels and thinner fins to increase cooling efficiency. Also less depth to the waterblock to increase the flow rate.

    Smaller reservoir- In Phame's build he used the reservoir as a large passive heatsink. I wanted to use a more active method of cooling which meant the volume of coolant was less and flow rate higher.

    Peltier cells!- A second waterblock would allow the coolant to pass the cold side of a peltier cell, thereby lowering the temperature of the coolant below ambient temperature.

    So, here's some bits so far!

    So far...

    What do you think? :)
