    Re: Custom AMD Waterblock i made!

    stiLLmatiC - I live in SAN DIEGO I can pick it up=free shipping, lol

    note about HDD cooler: Your biggest challenge will probably be mating the surface of the spindle to the surface of the waterblock. I'll try to be more helpful tomorrow.

    PS - Mounting, mounting, mounting! I see you have six thingies to attach the top of the block to the base, but AMD and Intel have "white papers" that will tell you about there mounting hole distances. I'll provide a link when I'm more helpful(tomorrow).

    PPS - maybe have hex screws that come up through the bottom and anchor into the base of the top. That way I could buy bigger hex screws and mount a cold plate and Peltier to it!

    Ah, that's starting to look very nice. Is that using a jet design in the middle? I can't tell from what you've posted.
    That's a sweet rig in your sig, but does it fold?

    SADLY, no I did not go with teh Jet-stream idea as the cover. water jsut flows right through those spikes in the middle. And If i were to sell it.. I would recommend a high-GPH pump that can handle the small crevices in here. Like a 370GPH+ or something of that sort.

    Re: Custom AMD Waterblock i made!

    Looks like fun... but take into consideration the idea that there needs to be a tool which can carve your copper stock to those tolerances! I remember Cathar talking about having trouble finding drill bits that small; if I'm reading your plan correctly, you would need a .03" drill bit for the CNC mill to carve the channells between the hex pillars?

    Ouch... I dunno if there IS such an animal... :shrug: But Cathar was doing it over a year ago, and in Australia... San Diego has some Aerospace Tech folks around; maybe you CAN have it done. Have a good time with it, man!

    Yeah, Australia is one of those back-water nations where we've just discovered the wonders of steam power. We keep hearing about this new-fandangled electricity thing, but meh, watching lightning start off bush-fires is about the only use we see for it.

    1/32" is ~0.03", and that is indeed the sized mill bits that we were using here.

    Still, not too sure about attempting to cut through copper with one. They are no longer than about 1/10" (can't cut deeper than that), and they are so fine they you need to go extremely slow with them in metal, which is why we only used it on plastics.

    I wasn't knocking Australia, mate.... It's just that here in the 'States at least, getting prototypes carved out in cities which have large Aerospace facilities is a lot easier than getting it done in, say, New York City.

    Very cool. So does this mean you'll have a prototype soon?
