Water Block with Fins?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This may not exist but if it does it would be awesome!!!

So here is my 7950
LL and I like being able to put a Universal Waterblock on it and then add the Swifttech heat sink. & an 80mm fan on it.

Now It would be great if I could find a water block that would have fins on it that I could put on the opposite side of the heat sink.

This would be extremely useful for coiling the rest of the card and it would be useful for cooling other products that already have heat sinks.

This system would also work well for other things like for example Bit Mining Hardware. I own a couple of ]Erupter Blades that look like this:

(That I am about to retire) but they give out a TON of heat for 75w they heat more than a 1500w space heater. (I have been giving that excuse to my girlfriend to run them saying it is same price as for heating)

So I am pretty much looking for a basic heatsink like this one from amazon heatsink but with fins.



I am actually thinking of making some by gluing heatsinks to the waterblocks.

PS. I run a mostly all aluminium water System so please do not comment on the aluminium water blocks.

It would be inefficient at best.

If you want to cool the chip the block is on, that is what the radiator is for. If you want to cool the surrounding components, then give them their own heatsinks so they are not getting the heat from the waterblock added to them.

Well issue is a full GPU waterblock cost ~100+ vs reusing a GPU block + Swiftech Heatsink at ~$40 saves you $60 each upgrade. I just Thought if the block and the heatsink were in complete contact it would work better than Air , reusable and have multiple uses.

The problem with such ''block'' is that it will never be universally compatible. You better just put heatsinks on the board where it needs it.

There are fins on all water blocks, they are just rather small (around 0.5mm). For convection to be proper in these situations, giant fins submerged in working fluid isn't practical or effective. It would be a huge pressure drop mostly.

To my knowledge there aren't any specific blocks for vrm cooling on gpu. That doesn't mean you couldn't try to make any of the current motherboard vrm blocks fit. However, what's the point? If you put a decent heat sink on it and have moderately good airflow, it will stay under 80C. Those vrm are usually rated to 120C.
