    Cool

    Well this just sucks!!! My 1400 T-bird is toast!!! When I fried my test mobo it must have taken it out aswell!!!

    Anyway I got the new Epox 8K7A and dropped in my backup Duron700. I have it set to 866mhz at 145FSB and 1.85Vcore.

    So far full load temps are 32C. Water temp is 25C and room temp is 21C.

    Later I will drop my XP1600+ in there and get some more results. 7C above water temp isn't that bad actually for an Aluminum block. Will see what the XP can do to it later.

    I am using a tranny cooler. About 10" long, 5" tall, and 3/4" thick. it has 1 Panaflow 120mm 83CFM fan pushing air through it. I also might mention I am only using 5/16" connectors. This block has room for improvment. My pump is a "Little Giant" 185GPH.

    Wondered about using "oil coolers" or trans coolers. Hmmmm.......Tek may have to do a little water experiment before long.

    Problem with them is they are not cheap. This one cost $35 US. A 1988 Ford Escort Heater Core (with air conditioning) costs around $20 new and works just as good from what I hear. I am going to buy one after I replace my 1400 T-Bird (RIP). The one I got does just fine though. 4C above room temp with just 83CFM going through it isn't to bad. i got a bunch of 120's laying around. I am going to drop another one on for a second set of results later.

    Yes on the inside design once i get the final version done.

    i am expecting the CU block to cool about 2C better at the most. If that is worth the extra $10 to you thats fine with me. The reason Danger Den dosn't sell a Aluminum version is for that reason!!! He makes a much larger profit off of the Copper one.

    YES, 1/2" will be available!!! Along with 3/8". Flow seems to be very good. Not much restriction and a lot of water going back into the resivore quite fast.

    Have no idea about shipping outside US yet.

    Also about the RAD, yes I can put two fans on there. I have 2 Delta 120mm 120cfm fans if fact. But I don't want to test with those. Not to mention my air to water temp is only 3C difference with what I got there.

    As a Manufacturer that ships out of the country frequently, I suggest US Postal Priority mail services, for cost, as well as ease of documentation for export declarations.
