Raspberry Pi Gets Water Cooling Solution

watercooled-piThe Raspberry Pi is certainly one hot ticket item when it was first released, targeting hobbyists who want to build their very own computers without having to sell an arm and a leg. While this low-powered mini computer will run on a 700MHz ARM11 processor, one is able to obtain more performance out of it by overclocking it to 1GHz. Of course, if you want to go all out, then the processor might get wee bit unstable, but there is nothing quite like a custom cooling solution to bring down the heat a notch (or two).

Check out this water-cooled “Wet Pi” project that you see above, as it hails from bit-tech forum member Phame. Of course, in the first place, there is no good reason to make use of water to ensure that a Raspberry Pi remains nice and cool, after all, it will never notch up the temperatures that a high-end gaming computer would. Still, this is a fun project to dive into, and it is one of those “because we can” scenarios, where the custom case is equipped with neon-pink water pumped to three of the hottest spots on the board. The water pump itself will be powered by the Raspberry Pi board, so all you need to keep this system running is a single power adapter, now how about that?
