100% Copper EVGA GTX-580 Classified Full Coverage Waterblock (Completed!) - Page 9

What helps is the O-ring material along the fins, and the main divide. There was always flow, just not as fast as the rest.

The first look at the copper block:
337

A picture on my work keyboard hardly does it justice, but at least you can see what it looks like. I will take some better photographs as I complete the other 3 making a complete 4 way SLI system.

That last pic almost looks rendered due to the matte finish lol. Are you concerned with stagnant water in the top-middle section?

There are just too many screws.
And the o-ring along the fins is obsolete imo.

Funny a guy with a name like overkill is telling me there are too many screws.

The o-ring material helps keep the water along its intended path, and also just gives a block a unique look. What is obsolete about it?

Butcher, Not really, water flows everywhere in the block. Some places much faster then others, but as long as its flowing its doing its job.

What I'm referring to is the tiny tap in the o-ring, between the fittings. Water can get in, but likely won't get out. It won't affect the flow at all, but could be a collection point for deposits and/or corrosion/oxidation.

good point. I am not worried about oxidation, but there won't be any performance problems. Just may become unsightly over a period of time, but its easy to fix by simply taking the block apart.

First look at the copper pics here:

An eddy is a swirl or vortex...

Looks great in copper!

ohhh... I thought it was referring to something Eddy at EK did a while back.

I did some preliminary tests last night and I got around (on average) a 20°C drop in temps compared to the stock cooler.
