Since the block is going to be 100% copper and you are going to have 4 of them, by the looks of it, it's about 1.5x the size of what blocks are currently in the market now and those are already a bit on the heavy side, it's going to be pretty heavy and might cause a issue, stress to the motherboard, make sure that thing is supported some how is just my guess..
All good, gotta love prototypes..

It is going to weigh quite a bit. Also it will have my SR2 block on it which is somewhere on the order of 2lbs of copper. I have addressed this with the customer, and I will try to find a sturdy foam insulation to support the board and help alleviate bending.

That is sort of implied. I made it a point to recommend that, or this build would worry me.

Oh good thumb.gif Also, not sure if you answered this and I just missed it, but do you do any CFD analysis on your blocks or is it all by eye? I'm looking at drawing up some blocks and other parts to make and was wondering what programs you use. I have access to pretty much all of the major software packages through school (engineering wheee.gif) but I'm curious to know what you use redface.gif

The faceplate will be clear just so the interior can be seen. After all the work put into the design, I would hate to cover it up tongue.gif
