Default Building own waterblock

I would like to build a waterblock for my cpu.
But my God, where can I find some copper ?
I am from Aalst, went all the local stores (homemarkets) off.
Does someone know a store where I could find some copper nearby Aalst ?

This would help me a lot.

Look around if you can find a milling plant.
They might have a couple of leftover bars for you.

Nothing that I know that's near your area.

I've got a zalman heatsink CNPS6000. See the link for details.
http://www.zalman.co.kr/english/product/cnps6000Cu.htm
As my first watercooling project I will try to make a box around this heatsink in 'acryl'.
It is a fine heatsink for aircooled AMD. This heatsink got so many an thin fins and a fine base.
So I was wondering what if I could run some water over it?

I will regulary post the progress but if you got hints, trics, etc..
They are welcome.

I wouldn't encourage that.
This coolers is to big to cover completely and still have an effective flow over the entire thing.

HO cooling works too differently to use the same heatsink. Especially with zalmans.
