There's been a lot of innovation...but you'll need to track it down on the individual threads started by the BlockHeads...

It would Be nice to Collect all the ideas and photos and renders on a single thread

LOL I thought that is what this thread was for.

There needs to be another "Essential Threads" post.

Well I was hoping the posts would end up at least reposted here. As it's not my work or my posts not much I can do.

Ok, I'll repost what I've done on my work in progress block here:
Alright figured I'd post my waterblock progress in a separate thread.

First up is my inspiration behind the design. For the LGA775 artic silver 5 method of TIM application it's, a nice "THIN LINE"....

This is a picture Audi posted about modifying the AS tube to get a really nice thin line:


The real intent behind all of this is that the C2D and Quad Core both have sort of rectangular die dimensions under the IHS. So...I went with this thought and I'm constructing a nice thin line type block, one inlet, dual outlet.

I'll just post my block progress pics here:

Milling the slab out square and step down:



Pin cut 1


Pin cut 2


And this is where I'm at currently. Cleaned up the base a bit by removing the partial pins and flat perimeter, still need to sandblast. I also have a good start on the mid block made out of Lexan/Polycarbonate:


And a better view of the guts...
Still need to trim off around the perimeter outside edge, but I figured I'd get it all bolted together first then trim the block nicely as one unit for a perfect match.


So it's got a linear nozzle in the center and two linear outlets at the top and bottom. Note the 45 degree square pin cut will force the water to weave through the pin matrix.

Also still contemplating o-ring vs. other gasket methods.. I think I left just enough room to cut an o-ring channel step, but I'm not sure what I want yet..

Update 10-16 Top Block
Underside:


Top down view:


Update 10-17 Sand Blasted Base, finished top block, finished perimeter, machined base









Updated 10-18 Finished assembly, temporary hold down plate, installed and getting ready to test..

Rocker/Single center point force mounting plate..


Next up, had to see the nozzle/accelerator jets in action...


And here is the block installed, quick and dirty hold down plate until I figure out something cooler, but it works.


In operation:


Update on Version 2... 11-2-07, deburred and dished base between pins, removed nozzle holes in favor of a continuous slot.

I decided to try very small changes to my CPU block at a time and test results thoroughly.

For this round I did the following:

Deburred the copper pin base with a 1/32" drill bit. There were some burrs left from the slotting saw that this cleaned up and it also left the base between the pins with a more efficient rounded bottom in between all the pins.

Second, I noticed that the block was fairly restrictive, almost more than my nozzled fuzion, and that the nozzle holes didn't necessarily line up with the pin openings.
The nozzle change:


New results...getting closer one degree at a time...

Now, how about a discussion on base thickness.

What's you're opinion.

1) Thinner can only be better

2) 1/8" thick is the sweet spot

3) Base thickness need to match pin thickness

4) Don't know?

So far I've noticed alot of popular base thicknesses are around .100" or so.

MCW60 and I believe most of swiftechs blocks are around .110"

The fuzion appears to be about .065" with pins that are as small as .030 at their skinniest.

I believe the stinger is about .080" with .040" dimples.

I didn't measure precisely, but I belive my thin line block is around .080" thickness right now with pins that are about .040".

Personally I think the base just need to be at least at thick as the thinnest pin to serve as a heat spreader for the pins. Anything more is insulation and support.

Wow that block has a sexy look Martin...
Why don't any commercial blocks have see through tops?
It's damn sexy if you ask me...

Those are great shots Martin

I really like the shot f the water coming out the nozzle...it shows me more than a simple shot f the parts could

And I really like how it looks with the fluid in there

Sweet....

I did not take apart the Diamond Pin block I just received from Fstfrddy. I slapped it on the Maximus and put it to work.

Maybe Fstfrddy will share some pictures of his work so I don't have to take it apart .

Thanks!

Many do for GFX cards, and there are several with tops, but I think most are acrylic instead of lexan.

Acrylic is a much hard, but more brittle material that's much easier to machine, but it can crack if stressed improperly. Lexan is much more durable material, but it's fairly gummy and not the best for machining, but it won't crack.

Delrin/acetal sort of has it all...super machinability AND durable/crack resistant.

I found that using cutting fluid when machining lexan works pretty well as long as you use sharp bits.

I have a good local source for lexan, and I like it. Everyone seems to have their own preference on what they want. Some like all metal, some like clear, some like acetal.

I used to stay away from clear products until I better understood the differences between lexan and acrylic. Now I just stay away from acrylic oh and no alumimum for me either..
