Inert Metal Pipes for Inline Cooler?
hello, I want to experiment with making an inline cooler for my 20g shrimp tank.
I want to take a CPU processor fan that's connected to a heatsink and attach the heatsink to a metal pipe that has a hose barb on either end. There would be no temperature control- the fan would just run all day, but I was thinking of using a potentiometer to control the fan speed.
Is anyone familiar with CPU liquid cooling? What metal should I choose for the pipe, and how could I attach it to the heat sink? Price is definitely a factor.
Would I have to weld it? Has anyone done something like this? Would it work?
