As long as we're talking about using CnC mills to make waterblocks, yes.

What if you switch the inlet and outlet... thumb.gif

I was thinking of the same thing. The way I was going to configure my water loop was to go from the CPU to the voltage regulator block, and then from that the the SB block with the inlet being the port near the CPU, and then from the port near the USB3 headers to the graphics cards. If that's not going to work optimally, I can redesign my intended loop to fit. It just won't look as nice and neat. C'est la vive!

If you want those holes where you pictured, then your all set to go. I am still trying the beveled holes. I have an 16.6° degree bevel so far using a 3/8 top.

Judging from the loading time proxtube had to reroute me through some lonely cellphone in the middle of the namib desert but that glitter sure looks rad thumb.gif Seeing how water really flows in thoses blocks is fascinating!
What's under this one lonely corner of the MB block anyway? I mean, is lots of heat generated there so little flow would be an issue?

Ye gods...... am I the only one who finds this "scoring lower than you should?" mildly amusing? Is that score somewhere in the Top 100 even? Can't really get the results out of their search page.
On a side note, your goofing around pretty much doubles what my little precious here is capable of and you probably didn't even start overclocking it to the brim. thumb.gif
Why do I suddenly feel so insignificant...

No...definitely not top 100. In the Hall of Fame results...they only have one 2x 690 system even in the top 20 scores. Most of the top 20 is 4x 680's. The best 2x 690 score in the Hall of Fame is a 27,663....and he set it using a 5ghz CPU. There are a few that are higher in the results section...not sure why they don't show up in Hall of Fame. So I don't expect to be up there yet. Don't want to do much overclocking until I get my memory stable and start the water cooling.

To crack the Top 20 for 2x 690 scores....it looks like you pretty much have to be running at 5ghz, as well as have your card overclocked. Even when you drop down to the Top 100 690 scores, most of the submissions have CPU between 4.8 and 5.0 ghz. Just a lot of really nice systems out there.

A PLX PEX 8747. They're supposed to average 8 watts during normal use, so it shouldn't be too bad.

Milestone time: 2000th post of the log!

Nice score on 3DMark ... I'm still sporting a Q6600 and an upgraded GPU (8800GTX to GTX285), no question I don't go anywhere near your "unfinished" computer.

Keep at it!
