3D Printed Liquid Cooled Raspberry Pi Desktop - The Core

Sat Jan 12, 2019 12:03 am

This is my biggest project for the Raspberry Pi. Spent MONTHS designing this, and over 100 test prints of various parts. This is essentially the final product. I may or may not add more to it later. If you have any questions, let me know. If you have ideas or suggestions for the next version, I'd love to hear them! Parts list below the video:

This project wouldn't have been possible without the help of ModMyMods.com and their perfect little Raspberry Pi Cooling Kit. Stop by their website and find the parts to keep your next project cool!

Nice build, but I must say I think it's overkill.
What are you using the Pi for that a standard heatsink isn't enough for? (plus after a certain point, cooling the Pi further has no effect. Liquid cooling is way past that point.)

Of course it's overkill. But then again, I can overclock to 1.6GHz stable (no crashes in almost 6 hours of testing so far. I turn it off at night), and my temps never bump over 28C.

My goal is to use it for a home media server, OctoPi camera server, and second PC while I stream on my laptop (on Twitch). This RPi system will be my screen for chat messages, notifications, and other web lookup.

Would be interesting to see how CPUburn A53 goes on your setup.
Do you think you could spare a while to run a test?

Sure. My next video will be on overclocking, so I'll look at including CPU burning.
