hi guys, im building a new computer, its water cooled and im having an issue with my tygon. im using tygon 2475, 1/2 inch id and 3/4 od tubing and its a bear to flex the right way! iv done other water cooled systems before but never with this large of tube. can i heat the tube to reshape without wrecking it? its clear and i dont want to make it cloudy. any ideas? Thanks

use lots of it in Jets, yep nice hot water for a few minutes will make it very pliable and allow you to make nice smooth bends.

Run it in my PC. It is the best. medical grade.

Boil some water and try prebending your tight bends and see if it will conform before cutting it up.

boiling water worked great. it did put a few unwanted wrinkles in the sidewalls but im not sure how you can prevent that. had the wrong water blocks now more waiting......

1/2" is common, I run 3/8" in mine and back it with a high pressure pump.

Let's see . . .

250 Watts from the cpu and a 30ºF rise on the cooling water . . .

that's 853 BTU/hr
that's 3.55 gal/hr with a 30ºF rise
that's 0.0592 gal/min with a 30ºF rise
that's 13.68 in³ water/min
that's 70.7 in/min
or about 1.18 in/sec water velocity in a 1/2" tube
or about 2.1 in/sec water velocity in a 3/8" tube
or about 4.72 in/sec water velocity in a 1/4" tube

Even with 1/4" tube, that's still pretty slow.

If I missed something here, let me know.

Most people that watercool overclock, so your talking about more heat then posted.

They also cool the northbridge and GPU's in SLI.

Different pump sizes and radiator sizes are avalible for results desired.

ill post pictures when im done, but my pump will flow 320 gallons an hour, ill probably cut that in half as its adjustable. im cooling my processor and video cards. i decided not to cool my motherboard, ram and hdds because im not going for a completely silent rig and there are still case fans to move air as usual.
iv got a triple 120 internal radiator thats 80mm thick and has 3 120 fans blowing through it. all i need now is my sli water bridge and ill be in buisness

One year I was at Comdex in Las Vegas (long time ago) and one of the vendors, as a interest draw, had on display a computer in a bath of mineral oil. The whole mother board, operating, in a 6" bath of mineral oil. Try that for cooling.
