Water-cooling for your Raspberry Pi

If you're experimenting with overclocking the CPU of your Raspberry Pi and enjoy making different things then the following system by Instructables member Unprecedented may be of interest. They have created a water-cooling system for the CPU which is based around some 3D-printer parts and the typical water pipe with pump found on desktop equivalents.

The first stage of heat transfer is using a copper plate - and in this case an older US one cent piece due to the high copper content, those of us in other locales will need a small piece of copper cut to size. Otherwise the rest is straight-forward and explained in the following video:

For more details about this system, visit the project Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

As part of our increasing range of Raspberry Pi-related products we have the PiBreak - a prototyping board for the Raspberry Pi. It provides labelled breakout pins for all GPIOs, a large prototyping area with solder pads, and power rails for easy power connection:

Furthermore the PiBreak also includes mounting hardware to firmly attach it to your Raspberry Pi using a nut, bolt, and spacer - and is compatible with all revisions of both model A and B Raspberry Pi computers. For more information about our new PiBreak board, our Getting Started guide, and to order - visit the product page
