EDOT: Goddamn this shoul've been a PM.

I built my machine in my basement, but they range anywhere from 7K on up to tens, of thousands.
The control software is Mach 3 ($300) and the CAM could be in the thousands, but I made most of my tool paths by hand. Took days at one point.
So basically WAY out of my price range. Thanks for all the info biggrin.gif +rep

You make me wonder if you dabble in water block prototype making just for fun to see if you can make something much better than what everyone else has: things like trapezoid micro-channels or bi-directional diagonal channels and such.

Incredible build!!! Very meticulous!
Let me know what slots could be open for potential inlets. I have been staring at this board for a few days and think I can come up with a few designs for the inlets. the 690's will defiantly leave room for inlets around the last PCI-E slot, but there is "some" room up towards the top by the CPU and ram. Won't know until some really closeups are taken.
You are correct, I have been pretty busy with the SR2 blocks, but I hope to have them done soon!

Talk about meticulous...those blocks look amazing!

Yup. I actually started making the SR2 blocks so that I could afford to buy the chips to go with the board. I never bought the chips, but put the profits back into my machine and now I am building a second CNC. It will be much more capable then the one I have now. I couldn't justify shutting down the operation just to buy the processors. People started asking me to make things and it gives me a tremendous personal pride to make their visions come to life.

Thanks! They are still unfinished. The thread in the EVGA forums shows the entire process from start to finish.

Anything is possible. wink.gif

I don't want to hijack the thread, but I defiantly look forward to making this block.

I was just browsing the new products section from a local webshop and found white BitsPower fittings ! thumb.gif

The website is mostly in Dutch, but you'll get the picture.

Were white Bitspower fittings already going to be made...? Or did we convince them to make em on this thread?!

Last night I finally threw in the towel with AquaComputer and re-ordered almost all of the stuff from Aquatuning. If you haven't read about my AquaComputer experience....see this thread. So I'm fairly confident I'll have all of my Aqua stuff this week. I also made the executive decision to do the AMS rads white on the sides instead of crimson, which allows me to move forward with my final Caselabs transaction. Jim had run out of the custom Prismatic powder on my first order, and had to order more before he finished the top panels and some plates in my custom color. I asked him to hold off doing the final batch so I could send him some additional faceplates (some from Aqua...and the rads). Not getting the Aqua order kept that whole thing delayed. Now that I'm not going to do the AMS rad sides in crimson, I can move forward with Caselabs also. I sent Jim an email last night telling him that the remaining faceplates were on the way.
While I'm finalizing the Caselabs stuff, I also inquired about ordering two of the new XXL doors for my TH10, and one of the USB 3.0 retrofit kits....both of course done in the crimson color.
Additionally, since I fully expect my Asrock Extreme11 motherboard to be available for purchase sometime in the next week or two....things are going to start moving.
Build progress will remain slow for the next couple of weeks, while I wait for the AquaTuning stuff, Caselabs order, and the motherboard. Plus I'll be out-of-town on a Florida vacation and cruise the last week of July and 1st week of August....so no progress updates during that time. But I will try and show some progress before vacation on some custom wiring I'll be working on, ...selecting a color pattern for my 24 pin and 8 pin sleeving, and doing my custom dye batch for the MDPC-X sleeving....all before I get out of town on vacation. Once I return....build should move ahead full steam.

Chris, i've been creeping in this thread for the last few days trying to catch up, i'm still reading... (Really cool stuff by the way) However, after I read this ^^ I thought hey i'm vacationing in Florida the same week! What part will you be visiting?
