LOL, yea, I found that picture on another forum and had to capture it. The guy was actually using it but need the paper towels to catch the drops of fluid.

I just tossed it up here hoping you all got as much of a kick out of it as I did.

indeed i did lol, my first thought would be to stop using the system untill the leaks were sealed, paper towels do not make for a good pc as the would in effect act like a blanket and therefore trapping heat underneath them and so kind of defeats the object of the liquid cooling somewhat don't you think? lol

Well, the test runs being successful, I put it in my old system. After two days of liquid cooling, a pinhole leak developed, and I'm back to the drawing board on the heatsink. It might be better to buy a heat plate with all the leaks I've addressed on the CPU cooler. I thought a bigger one might work better, and it does, but until I come up with a leak-proof system, I can't use it. Here are some temperatures though:

Final update on this project!!!!

I dipped the whole heatsink in epoxy, and ground out the excess. Now I have a leak free heatsink, working pump, rad, reservoir, etc etc.
