Wow, Ira, that's a sweet, mad setup!
Is there a reason for the varying lengths of the tubing (returns, I'm assuming) inside the res?

I am about to get Pro-E 4.0/Wildfire. I am guessing that would do the trick too.

I have one quick question, how do those 3 barbed blocks work? 2 inlet and 1 outlet or 2 outlet and 1 inlet?

cant really say im too fond of that one... i personally just love Siemens/Unigraphics NX, currently at version 6, though i have 5 as well.

but i needed Pro E for some stuff... tried it a little... whereas NX has 2 methods of shaping an object, pro E only has one of those... and sadly not even the one i like most.

NX is freakishly expensive though... costing upwards of 50,000$ for the core program and only some basic modules.

She just thinks she'll get electrocuted in here....I don't try to convince her otherwise either. What did it is when I brought a fuze box off the house mains and ran in here for TEC, then that bench had wire hanging all over it. I'm running phase right now and it doesn't look as bad as MOAB did.




MM..That longer 3/8" tubing going down to the bottom is the pick up for the res cooling loop. I just used normal 3/4" ID rubber grommets and then put 1/2x3/4" tubing over 3/8" plastic tubing connectors and a little clear silicone for the res portals on it. Then I just stuck some plastic T's into the ends of the 1/2" loop return lines so it would go down instead of splasing off the sides, when I'd take the top off it would splach everywhere with-out them.

That's some nice software CD, I just went and looked, it's pricey but I bet it's good! See the top of that Celtic cross CD? I like that I usually have it jacked in for decoration, Thanks again, I really like that!

I make them both ways, I do believe that with a good pump and using a reservoir with dual returns that you can get an increase in flow. At the very least you get a balanced flow and theoretically a more even cooling of the blocks base. I actually am still using one of my very early V6s, a 2 barb but am in the process of building a V8 for myself in an attempt to gain a bit more cooling to the E8400 I just put in. She is running a bit on the warm side at 4ghz.

ah, you actually make those blocks yourself? that is awsome man you can really improve your blocks and make them more efficient. I wish i had the tools and machines to do that.

Getting ahead of myself as usual, but durring my time away from home I thought alot (maybe not enough) about making the cpu block for my i7 system. I know I still haven't even really cut into the block that I have posted about earlier here, but I am already set on how I will shape that block and it's just a matter of waiting for free time on the mill to do it.

I like redundancy and always planned to go two pumps. I think lots of people do the same as well. However, I think I will go two complete loops into one cpu block. MAYBE something like this





The base plate is .1875" thick and I'd try to mill the fins with a .006mm slitting saw. Will be very restrictive, but will have it's own dedicated DDC+ pump. Maybe even use a thinner copper plate so whatever heat this loop doesn't handle doesn't have too far to travel till it hits the next loop.

Next plate (.5" thick) up will have bowls to direct water down to the base plate and also bowls to direct water through the fins on that level. This plate will be high flow, although what I skteched doesn't look very high flow at all. Center of the fins on this plate will have a stack of silver wire and will be soldered on so that a good portion of the flow is directed towards the bottem. Then it goes through the other half of the fins before getting to the outlet bowl that will be cut so that it fills from the bottem up.






Next plate (.5" thick) is just distributing the incoming and out going water to the correct barbs/bowls.

And the top plate (.25" thick) is just that.

Or maybe I just do a simple whitewater copy, but somehow work in two inlets and two outlets, each with its own loop.


Problems with design I am sure there are plenty and of course new commercial blocks are already staying near ambiant and you don't really get much better then that without doing other things, but this design (which will be changed plenty of times before the copper starts getting cut) will lead into some other plans I have wih a few more changes.
