This has been done to alephs before. Grey Rollins had a nice thread about it . Use the search function and you will find them....

Remember, you are supposed to search before posting.....

so do you think that will be an good ideal to have the water runing one the copper pipeand then put the pipe on the heat silnk or have the fet mount on a water cooling aluminus plate like the one we have in restaurant ? you know the one we find on the botton of the ice ? they use it to cool coke cola or pepsis

Grey Rollins talks about soldering a copper tube to a 3mm copper plate
and mounting the devices to the plate. I'll try to find it . It is for an Aleph not Aleph X, but it doesn't matter.

If you need parts I have a bunch left over from some water cooling projects, let me know and I can put them in the Trading Post. (Hope this is the less frowned apon way to do that)

Since you already have heatsinks, the easiest way to reduce temperature (before trying something more complicated) is to force cool them. Just get yourself a few low-noise 120mm computer fans and blow them at reduced voltage against the heatsinks (at least one fan per heatsink, two would be even better, as you can reduce fan speed and hence noise futher). Use a variable power supply to try until you get acceptable temperature. You would not hear much fan noise at reduced speed.

And then you have all the time in the world to think of other fancy alternatives.
