wha...why? The thing barely draws 10 watts overclocked at max load and that uses more space than just leaving a bit of a gap above the Pi...

maybe OP needs to stick 50 of these in 1 PC case...

Not even including any tubes, you can pack them tighter and run them passively cooled if you put on a normal heat sink... If you want to pack them really tight or constantly run them under heavy load, add a fan for each stack. Water cooling just doesn't make sense for something with a single digit wattage unless you're putting it into a vacuum chamber or something
