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 .

That's one beautiful block as always


FYI

I have all your chipset and mosfet blocks 90% done, just need to do some lapping and make backplates for the chipset blocks...

The barb alignment on the south chipset block turned out really well. Not sure what people are running on the SB for commercial blocks, but this one specifically overhangs to allow full use of the PCI-e and top PCI slot so there shouldn't be any conflicts with a two slot GFX card.

So when is there going to officially be the CD-Ira-M210 and Sons? This is some great stuff here guys, makes me really tempted to take the plunge.

I'm confused though, why do only a few people run a loop through the provided Maximus NB cooler? Is it required? I mean there's already enough copper there to build a Zalman 9700 but if the connections are there I'm surprised it's not mandatory.

Love that maximus board there, cant wait till i get mine in about 2 weeks along with my PA.160.1

Only problems is that my MOSFETS wont fit it
I heard EK is making MOSFET blocks that fit the maximus, but dont know when they will be out.

here is a pic of the inside of that block in progress, I used a divider resting atop the pins for not only support of the base but to also to keep the water flow down through the pins. I cut a couple of relief gates though because I felt it was a bit too restrictive with the solid wall.

I had no idea! That is a clever way to force the water. Your DP block is kicking butt on the Maximus with a PA 160.

Damn that looks great. Makes me almost want to keep the DDR3 I supposedly have sold...

But the P5K DLX will look just as purdy

I shipped my old block to Burn but it was really just a prototype to see what the flow would be like, since it was aluminum. Once Burn gets his CNC mill going he might make a finished product.

ive seen open block desighn years ago on a 2000+ athlon, the bottom of the block was open and water direct die.... it had good results, just a beotch to work on.....

This hasty diagram simply shows that the inlet is spread into a lozenge shape by the fan over the troughs milled into the base with outlets over collection chambers at each side.


From this view the Outlets are represented by the lugged top surface of the chamfred edge of the top. The fan shaped inlet nozzle is better seen from this angle. From on edge the constriction of the fan shape is more apparent: the idea being to spray the water in a line onto the base whre it will be directed to either edge and collected and directed through the outlets.

What do you think?

That design is pretty much the same as the DD RBX, i have the RBX running on my E6600, i bought it right when it first came out, and its gone though many builds.... it works very well for me, thats why ive never upgraded....

BTW, Does anyone here have a solid brass or metal top for one of these RBX blocks they'd wanna get rid of? my blocks top is plexi, and is in pretty rough shape

Nice looking block there fstfrddy...Pretty slick way to make it like that, a lot easier and better then milling out channels and losing pins...
