That's not bad for a load temp I guess, you must have more then enough rad on it for the fans not to matter much, that's good, rad overkill is a nice thing.

Hey Chilly is still running great, I have a couple of 92mm Pana I was going to stick on with a push-pull and a couple of other little tweaks, but its cooling so well I don't want to break it down and lose the mount.

going i7 ira? Can´t wait to see what you can do with it
It will be Winter time before I get one probably, that's when I OC, Summertime is for fishing!.

Even 437W direct die I don't think would be any good with the i7, I can barely keep a E8600 at 4600-4800Mhz with a 6C or so Prime load with it. I can bench a lot higher with it but not for 24/7 use.

Its just not worth the electric bill to me if I load at much over 0C.

I only got as far as cutting the block to the rough shape. I am not sure what the normal way, best way or whatever way that other people do this is, but I am just cutting a very rough oversized block that I will then drill holes through using the best side/corner to line things up and place the holes at distances based upon how it sits upon the CPU, tap the base for M2.5, then screw the plates together and slowly mill and size in all the edges of the plates at one time. Then when I am happy with that, I will shave the CPU base's thickness down till the NB portion makes a solid contact with the NB. Then I'll worry about doing the internal. If there is a better way, let me know

One of the things I forgot to get was cutting oil....it became appearant I needed it when I was using the band saw on the thicker copper plate. Not a very pretty cut all around, but plenty oversized that I am sure I can make better edges on the mill considering everything will be clamped in and moving at very straight lines when I am cutting with the mill.





How it will be on the mobo basically. Small itx mobo, if I do the aluminum top, it will dominate the mobo. Might even order a thicker aluminum plate later if this works out well. And it isn't really more copper then needed, since I needed it to extend out to the NB, I went ahead and made the CPU section wider then really neccessary since anything I cut off would become scrape anyway and I figured more copper is better.

Will have four little peg legs come out at the corners around the cpu area to attach it to the mobo. I was going to do something much more fancy, but I'd probably just screw it up, so instead I elected to go with something simple.


Version with acetal top


Copper base with intermediate copper top



The thin copper part looks like it was cut too small, but actually everything else was cut too big. I guess it is wasting material and expensive material at that, but I would rather err on the side of needing to shave more off, then having it be too small for what I wanted. And the thin copper part will also need to be shaved down, it's just the thicker parts need even more shaving.


Fstfrddy, thanks for the link to the gaskett sheets. I went ahead and ordered a couple of those as well as the o-ring splice kit. Will make a small aluminum block just so I can try making the grooves to use an o-ring on. See how that goes. If no good, will just use the gaskett sheet. Also, does WD40 do ok as a cutting oil? Or do you know if places like Home Depot sell cutting oil in a gallon jug? The mill I am using can stream and recirculate oil....I just need to put oil in it....how about engine oil?

Also got my order in from Mcmaster. I ordered six .006mm slitting saw blades and an arbor for it. I knew .006 would be thin, but..uhm....it is about as thin as a sheet of paper. I have doubts it will cut anything without shattering. Will try it and take it real slow and wear an apron and a face shield as well as having the protective barreier down over the whole cutting area. Luckily I only plan to use it on the small square around the CPU. Really, these slitting saws look dangerous lol

When I cut a block I sandwich all the pieces in the vice at the same time. Same when drilling the holes to be tapped then re-size the cover holes after. I like WD40 because it eventually evaporates and dose not leave an oily mess to deal with and it washes easily. I have a spray bottle with 90% isopropyl alcohol to clean with. As for sawing I use a wax type stuff, if you had nothing else hitting the blade with candle wax will give you some lube or even Parrafin used for canning will work. I really try to keep oil to a minimum.
Since you have a recirculating system though, I am sure you can get cutting oil from McMaster. The guys in my old shop used to use a product called cool-tool I believe.

Yeah, that Mosfet block was a bugger as you can see the mill grabbed one of those thin fins and ripped it off when I got a little too close. I doubt it will have any effect though.
