I wanted to see if I could use a PC water cooling kit to water cool a Raspberry Pi 4. I’ve seen a couple of people try this on older model Pi’s using reducers and adapters to get to a small cooling block onto the CPU, but I’m going to try and make an adapter to fit a larger, 30x30mm cooling block onto a Pi 4. I’ll also try to overclock the Pi to 2.0GHz and see how well the water cooling system does to keep it cool.
Just to be clear; this is totally unnecessary and is more of a let’s do it because we can, not because we should type of project.
Here’s a link to my write-up on the build and the test – https://www.the-diy-life.com/water-cooled-raspberry-pi-4-totally-unnecessary-but-pretty-awesome/
