I'd imagine it would be easier to make them separately and also more efficient if they aren't sharing the heat

Im sure its easier to to make them separate, but easy is boring tongue.gif As for sharing heat, as long as they are in same loop they still "share" heat as far as i can see. A block for both will also contain more metal there fore dissipating more heat. On the other hand, KISS, "keep it simple stupid", might work better tongue.gif Just thinking out loud here, LOL

With a good design they would look as good as any other good designed block i guess.

I wouldn't be so quick to abandon the idea. The other inlet hole (the one on the bottom) seems to be closer to that edge and it didn't cut into the right angle. And as I have said before, with my GPU cards (which have built in backplates) there is about 1/8 inch of space between the card and the beveled edge of your chipset block. So if you need to move the edge over a little to prevent cutting through the right angle, you have a little room. So in theory, it seems feasible to make a few adjustments to get it working to me.

I think this was a consideration originally when the block was designed. The problem is that the original size of the copper block before CNC milling would be a lot bigger and cost a lot more money. So much so that it would be prohibitive and waste a lot of copper. And I don't believe nateman_doo is able to recycle the shavings that come off the blocks he makes and reforge them into materials for new blocks. But he'd have to comment on that for more info/details.

Fair enough. Going forward we will refer to them as the mipsman_doo holes in the middle of the block, and the nateman_doo holes on the edge of the block. tongue.gif

The nateman_doo holes would work fine if the block wasn't beveled where the holes are. If you simply left the block top parallel to the motherboard, everything would fit. But....at this point I just want a top that works as quickly as possible. If I felt more confident about it, I would tap some threads in my current block top myself right where the mipsman_doo holes are, and just use stop fittings on the nateman_doo holes. But please, PLEASE....do whatever gets me a top that can be used in the least amount of time.

My goal is this week. I plan to have my fixture plate for these done tomorrow or thursday at the latest, then have some replacement delrin tops made and be shipped out by next week.

oh... and LOL to the mipsman_doo holes! smile.gif


This ugly aluminum plate will be the future home of new ASrock blocks.

...and after:
post #3710 of 3968
And this is the purpose of the fixture plate:

To drop the raw material in a specific place, bolt it down.. and hit the go button smile.gif
