Keep an eye in the slot where the pipe runs into the heatsink to look for the thermal glue melt.

The heat pipe is really thin and easy to destroy, so don't fatigue it by twisting on it too soon or handling the assembly roughly . . . .

Thanks for detailing it, will post here when I´ve tried it out! thumb.gif

You mean one of those little mini butane refillable portable torch things . . .


If so, not a chance in . . . Well, you know.

You could try the heatgun, but I really really really doubt it,

I think Jesus will divine you the Powerball numbers first biggrin.gif


Don't forget to wear decent gloves, I'd guess the temps to be over 500F for sure before the thermal bond weakens.

I'd really like to see some more folks be successful with this, so that it increases the knowledge base for the community.

Do you think there's any chance that an oven could be used? Like 30min @ 450F / 230C ?

Man, you'd be on your own there . . .

The principle of using heat to expand one metal away from another is that the one you're trying to expand . . expands faster the other one and /or that you can get the one you want to expand . . hotter faster than the other one.

If you put it all in an oven, then it all most likely expands together with no net gain.

By heating just the I/O heatsink, the mosfet heatsink helps keep the heatpipe cooler as the big heatsink heats and expands.


This is all you'd need, and it's only $15:

Yeah, i didn't think the Benzomatic would be able to do the job. Just listing my resources :p

My WEP 858D+ goes up to 450C and my Wagner Heat Gun goes to 1350F

Do you think i could expect good results with some patience? And obviously safety precautions :D

Propane flame temp is 3600F at the hottest part, so even with a lot of mass to dissipate the heat, you can achieve some hi heat levels.

I don't think it can hurt to try the heatgun, it may be a welcome surprise, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

=\

 

Yeah, i wasn't trying to compare Propane to a heatgun. You just understand the science behind it alot better than i do (which would be zilch). That's why i asked you =)

Very nice start, I will use parallel cooling for the titans. later on when the time is coming please let me know how muck you like bending acrylic tubing from Primochill doh.gif

Not too bad, with a heat gun and hardline mandrel kit, the bends come out pretty good.

That's the thing, my skills are at its infant stage. First time bending acrylic.

Too bad you didn't filmed it. It might be funny video.

Trust me, I did NOT forget the gloves.

I learned that lesson years ago bending PVC conduit, which is a lot less heat required than this was.


I'm not like this little guy . . . .
