gee, thanks, guess what ive been doing for the past hour... now i need a pump tubing and clue to how to stick the acrylic to the aluuminum heatsink... i have superglue, but dont know if i trust it. maybe melt it to the heatsink?
The waterblocks took a while as I had to get some things from home depot.
1) get a heatsink you don't need and cover the aroundings with Acrylic glass and then on top put 1/2 inch fittings.
2) make a 5.25 inch Acrylic glass tray and put two fittings on the back
3) you need a pump
4) you can make a radiator very easily, get some copper pipes and some knees and make wave like patterns with them
5) need some fans for the radiator, right now I have 3 x 80 mm blowing in and 3 blowing out air
And you just connect them with some 1/2 inch tubing, I can explain furthur if you want. I will write a full how-to later when I have time.

Although really your best option is just to clean your pc regularly if you live somewhere with allot of dust you should clean the system every two to three weeks.

i dont suppose you could give me a hint to where i could get these fittings for the heatsink? like on lowes.com or homedepot ?
Oh no, i used this glue, well GLUES if you call it. They were seperated from each other and when you squeezed it they mixed and you could glue anyting together and even if you blow it up it still won't give (seriously). I'm not sure what you call that type of glue, I threw it out thats why I can't read off the label, it was called twin something. As for the pics I can't seem to find a wire to hook my camera up, I think my cousin took mine, I should get it all together and upload the pics by next Saturday. I'll make a new topic since people are interested.

would it be simalier to this?
It is impossible to find it on a site, at least I couldn't, you should visit home depot and buy those things. They are at the pluming section near the hoses. They're plastic and grey coloured.

Also I want to echo what warriorscot said, be prepared to toast something, if your not prepared for it, just don't do it. I have a computer in the basement that I'm going to do it on just for a fun project and the fact that it's 10 years old, need an excuses to get ride of it. I will by no means try it on the high end rig I plan on building in June, high end water cooling or else a home made kit, I'm not comfortable about water cooling as like I have already said it has to many risks at this point in time. But I have to admit this is cool.
I still strongly recommend the filters, like warriorscot said even a a piece of plastic, you know those see through shirts that you hate so much you throw them out? That fabric would be great for this. I also like the idea of swiffers, but I'm not sure if they are sold outside noth america.

The filters for the fans, should they be for the fans blowing the air out of the machine or into the machine?
