Cheap ass chinese $5 5W leaky pump is in the plastic bottle

Pump leaks too much so need a bottle to hold the leaked water.
Computer cant be shutdown or else air bubble gets in the loop
Fan on PSU cools the VRM and parts of memory

Barbs on radiator too big, so I stuffed the 3/8 tube with 1/2 OD into 1/2 barbs. Not even leaking

The ghetto community salutes you, but there is already a thread devoted to Ghetto modding. You could become the king of that thread...

I thought my red-mod is ghetto....
what you need to do is tap a hole in the pump bottle cap and have a tube running down into the res bottle to reclaim the leaks. waste not...

In my defense, it's my friend's room.

It was hard to stand, because he put everything on the floor.

For any long term use....odds are that GPU is going to cook its VRM or memory. Most PSU fans don't pull anywhere near enough air to keep loaded GPU circuits cold. Not as pulling fans anyway.
