I'd try asking this on of the many Xbox sites.. There are plenty of modders who have probably tried this. Ifixit is about repair, so your question isn't suitable for here.

kaine, it does not have to go through the board or anything like that. It is piped to the parts needing to be cooled in case of the xbox, its the GPU and CPU. It works as a heat exchanger. The fluid circulates through some heatsinks, that are mounted on the IC's, and as it circulates it carries the heat away. This is very simplified but hope it makes sense.

thank you both,but how does it connect to the cpu and gpu

This is usually accomplished via a CPU block or a CPU Fan Radiator. If you Google the images for those two things, you will find a few varieties.
