Yeah thats true, aluminum blocks would be fine with a aluminum rad.

..Just talked with an old friend of mine.. his son is the new station manager for a industrial machine/lathe shop. ..They just purchased a 400,00$ water-jet..capable of 3D-Imaging and plunge cutting..

Gonna talk to them about prototyping my 6-port CPU block..gonna try to have the top made to fit my GTX base. Apparently they have a lot of free time to play with the machine..and need some good pieces to test out its abilities.

..Any CAD worthy sketches any users have, that might like to see to production..please post. I will see how much time I can get out of the staff for custom parts to be made.

check my gallery for the Heavy Duty waterblock its made to fit LGA775, with the top cut out of 90x90x10 piece of acrylic/lexan (though delrin or brass would work perfectly fine), and the base a 70x70x8-10 block of copper, channels 6-8mm deep. i suggest upscaling the 90's to ~100's and 70's to ~80's for LGA1366. (hole spacing is 80mm on 1366, vs 72mm on 775)
having the holes for both socket types for bonus points
all bolts would be M4 (i prefer the metric system)
the barbs are G1/4, but you may want to make the middle one G3/8, in case the block is copied for some of the flow-nuts amongst us.

the main point of this design is the S-channel thats cut into the top, rather than the base, allowing pins to be machined. (this with a standard mill in mind)
if you look closely, the base is machined to accept the walls of the S channel in the top.
if you choose to make the top out of plexi or lexan (polycarbonate), 5mm holes for LEDs for bonus points

the copper and plexi parts of this block are chamfered as to not interfere with the mounting hole position, not just looks.

the little details... well, just see how it fits for you, i dont care much about that.

if made for LGA1366 i have interest in having it shipped here, as i *may* build an i7 rig next year.

pics here and the 3 next.

if anything is unclear, i can try to remodel, taking LGA1366 into it.

Very cool..you have put more into the actual design of your block than I..with actual dimensions and such.. This might be easier to pass on for prototyping than my current design.

Will look into it this week.
post #465 of 753
yeah, but do note that the dimensions are for LGA775, which is OUTDATED as of today. so keep that in mind, as i mentioned.

Oh Man, Get some D-2 tool steel and have them cut you out some Bowie knife blanks, you can sharpen them up on a belt grinder later on..

The kid that runs the mill station is 22..and loves to experiment with detail and such. He has all kinds of free time, and has been building various things for the past 2 months..24/7. I dont know how they justify his pay..i guess he is 'honing' his skills with the machine..lol.

..Needless to say..I have high hopes.

dude, make me a new base for my WB! hahah.

i'll send you my extra block and he can make another base of his liking.
