You're going to have to get super DIY, maybe some fish tank pump modification, and get ready to be using AliExpress.

How about a budget. How cheap is cheap?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

Cheapest option by far is aliexpress watercooling parts. Bykski and Barrow come to mind. Depending on kit size these will cost between $150 and $250.

Next is EKWB aluminium 'kits'

Then next is EKWB copper 'kits'

 

Another option, though not technicaly ur average 'custom loop' is a quik release kits, which kind of act the same but are more akin to expandable AIO's.

i hope im not too late.. but a car radiator along with a fishtank pump would work... just keep in mind that you might need a lot of fans or a very large one for this to work.. i am currently working on making that happen and it would cost me less than $100 with the pump that i found on amazon ($25) along with a car radiator ($20) that i found on offerup plus the tubing (~$10) and fans... now the gpu block is easily found for cheap to stay within $100. just keep in mind i did my research and so far i havent found a reason to not do it but im still looking for a reason that would make me not do it... also do your research on the materials and all that.. for me im looking for 2 gpu water blocks and i already have a waterblock/pump combo for my CPU... another reason for a car radiator is beside it being passive, i can keep the fans on low and it will be very quiet and the pump will be the only thing that makes noise but the one i looked at seems to be very quiet (according to the reviews)
