100% Copper EVGA GTX-580 Classified Full Coverage Waterblock (Completed!) - Page 8

I'm sure he has a revision in the works, but my suggestion would be to make the channels slightly longer on the left side. Should allow that top channel to flow properly.
Well I knew that, Im just saying I have a feeling hes never gonna get all that glitter out rolleyes.gif
probly not too good for the pump either.. right?

That block is just a prototype. It will never do anything more then what you see there, just give the flow analysis. The glitter washes away pretty easily and it makes for a GREAT desk ornament. A buddy and I just sat there watching it for maybe 20 minutes. Just fun to watch the water flow through it. The pump doesn't really notice the glitter anyway. Most of the clumps of the glitter are in the reservoir, not in the pump.

As for that dead spot. There is "some" water flowing through there, but yes, that one area above the top fin a dead spot. I am not sure how much it will effect the temps since the water is still flowing over the metal. In any case I had something designed to help, but I am trying not to mess up the aesthetics of the block so much.

Here is a CAD design of a modest fix to help get water to that top stagnant fin:

405

Just a shallow line to help divert some water from the main flow to that one dead spot. The O-ring material will help keep the water going only where it is design to go and not in between the block and the top plate.

Also looked like you had an eddy going in the front part of the block, are there components under there that you need to cool or could you bring the left edge of the channel closer to the fins? Great idea using the glitter to do some flow viz work thumb.gif Also, why the threads on the top face of the block next to the barbs? Is there going to be some kind of bridge fitting used in the final version?

Very nice, you are quite adept at milling.

Thanks! Not sure what "pulled an eddy" was, but there is a single mosfet type device over by the DVI ports so the block is cooling it. The factory heatsink isn't but I figured it couldn't hurt to have it cooled.

First look at the copper pics here:

Very nice milling and blasting. Did the "shorter" turn at the top allow the top channel to flow better?
