Fun Project: 50 Watt DIY watercooled Ikea High Power Led Lamp

No comments
Everybody needs a watercooled LED lamp ;-)

Actually... I ordered the led stuff to do something different with it... But now it lights up my little workshop in the basement.

It consists of a 50Watt Led from ebay, a cheap watercooling system for CPU's and a big fat Lampshade from Ikea.

Sure, watercooling for a lamp. Daily business.


Actually the design is a bit ... rough. But it does it's job of lighting my desk quite well. An the watercooling is really an eyecandy.

If you want to build something like that keep in mind that active cooling also causes a bit of ambient noise. But in general a CPU cooler works quite well for cooling the LED. I ordered the cooling because I wanted to build the LED it in a quite small enclosing for another project which I did not realize since now.
