    Hey guys, thinking of water cooling my time capsule.


    Anyone done it before? How easy is it? Does it work well?


    Thanks,


    James

    seems like a waste. unless youre good at fabrication. but then why even bother with a TC.

    i had really cool temps using a notebook cooler for 13" or 15"
    it just is power via the USB port on the TC. works fine for the last 8 months.

    Hi, not really much point to it, just something cool. I love water cooled computery things, they fascinate me :)

    Anyone got any pics or tips on how to do it?

    Seems like a massive waste of time, if you're worried about your TM overheating, you might as well just build a larger case that has better ventilation, maybe add a single 40 or 60mm fan.

    Water cooling would be overkill, it would be like water cooling your DVD player, there just isn't a need for it.

    I know exactly what you are saying, and I know it's a over kill, but I can't afford a huge gaming computer just to watercool it, and I think it would be a cool little project. :eek::D

    then build it and post pics. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it has never been done.

    I'm gunna go on a limb that it'll never be done again either :p

    OP you could look at getting a G4 Cube case to house it all, gives you plenty of room for everything.

    I agree, this seems a little excessive. Other solutions would seem to be a better work-around, besides the massive waste of time that that option allows for.
