This is a VERY complicated block. This is just the bottom... I haven't even started the water-channel, O-ring, bolt holes, or inlets yet.

I'm definitely interested in one of these when it's done. It looks like it's coming along beautifully. However, you had mentioned that it's looking tight putting in the areas for the o-rings/compression fittings. Have you thought about using the space between the battery and the molex connector for the PCI-E-16x slots between the CPU & the first PCI-E-16x slot? I could see an inlet/outlet for the water channels going there.



I marked in the red rectangle the area I'm talking about. I don't think it would encroach on any CPU waterblocks. Let me know what you think.

That area is where the 1st PCI-E slot is

One busy block:


Installed on the board:


Not sure why the images are so small, I made them huge.

In any case there is room for moving things around, it will just take a LOT of work to do at this point. I think there is about .2" of clearance with the first 690 whizzing by the inlets. I wish I had a 3d printer to try this out before programming all the toolpaths only to find out the video card is touching the inlets. I will stare at it more and see what other options I can come up with, but this is actually enough to get a prototype going.

Still going to make some channels to guide the water along. Right now its just a large open chamber. Those raised gray sections are hollow underneath to avoid caps for the larger ones, and the small one is a blind hole from the bottom.

Just not sure what CPU block is going to be used. It would be sweet if I could score one to install and make sure everything is compatible with it. Thats why I don't want to put the inlet in the area you highlighted. It may work out to be a better spot, but then everything has to bend around the PCI slot, and just hang because there is no mounting screw.

I could probably go ahead and get my cpu block and send it your way. I'm still leaning towards the Raystorm Full Copper, but was kind of hoping to see Stren's initial results this week before buying. He's doing a cpu block roundup test. If the block would help, PM me address to send it to.

The Raystorm is not the best option for SB-E, I would recommend something else.
