    Increasing the amount of water flow will probably help more than cooling the water

                                  This is a neat idea but its kinda ruined by the fact that you guys don't even know how to overclock a PC.

                                                  I mean... In Vancouver, where they are, in the dead of summer where this would be most needed, 150L/hr comes out to a little under 0.21CAD/hr. Freshwater is extremely plentiful in Canada, so even in the most restricted season in a dense city they'd be looking at a little under $5 a day to run that. Which definitely isn't _cheap_, per se, but isn't exactly crazy either.

                                                  No promise that utilities don't check in on you to figure out where all this water is going, though, and possibly add additional levies.

                                                I Use to have aquarium pumps and a acrylic fishtank as my waterloop. Blocks were a problem, so you mostly ripped astech AIO apart. because 20 years ago there pumps broke all the time. But using regular water is gone corrode and give chalk residue in the long run. Just put the bucket in a passive camping chiller with some cooling elements next to it. You do have to drill holes in the top for the tubes doh, but it works very well. Fountain pumps work best because there mostly adjustable in speed.

                                                I so happy there EKWB and Bitspower now so we dont have to fuck around with that kinda stuff any more. and not having T-wraps to keep your tubes in place. But proper fittings makes me sleep a lot better at night and not worry if i find a wet pc the next morning.
