1. When talking abut "homebrew" on a console it refers to software not physical items, but that's the least of your grammatical problems.

2. You would never use an AIR-compressor with a WATER-cooled system, typically the water is moved using waterproof pumps.

3. There is no reason to custom build any of this of you're making it external, off the shelf parts should work fine

4. Based on the small amount of space between the chips and the DVD drive, it's doubtful you'd be able to fit a water-block in there, custom or otherwise.

5. Based on your communication skills I wouldn't recommend going anywhere near the tools required to do this as you might... actually on second though... have fun!

Anything is doable, you just have to make sure you do it right. You'll have to use a water block that has connections for the hoses on the sides since you'll never fit it in otherwise.

And by the way, write in English please!

[Translation:]
Before you laugh at this idea, I know this is overkill. muhaha.gif But i want my cube to be unique.
This is all going to be homebuilt, waterblock and all. The radiator and reservoir would be located in a seperate box. I would use an air line quick disconnect fittings between the Gamecube and the coolant reservoir/radiator box.

I've heard of guys getting radiators at Autozone, what exactly do you get?
[/translation]

You don't want to use air compressor fittings in this because they tend to leak.
The "radiator" you want is probably going to be an aftermarket oil cooler used for transmissions.

It's do-able, yeah. REasonable or useful no. You would making a custom waterblock about the size of the original heatsink all in one piece and it would have ot be small so you would likely be running 7/16 lines out of it to an external res. I say a line in on 1 side and out on the other. If you could machine it it's doable, but an external res would be ugly and you would make your game cube bigger... Who wants that?

It's lower, but I really doubt it will be an issue in an application such as this.
Are you going to be machining this or do you have other plans?

It's gonna take you forever to dremel that out.
You're better off drawing up the layout, then getting someone in shop class who can use the milling machine to cut it for you. If you're in a drafting class (or possibly an art class), then you can probably score some extra credit for drawing that.
