Custom 62mm TEC Water block - Page 54  

post #531 of 680
So at 65°C, the acrylic would crack? My i7 hits 75°C~ at 4.4GHz under water.

Also, are those acrylic screws? Are they strong enough?

no the acylic wont be 65 - 75c C it will be at water temp which should be no more than 30

The screws are polycarbonate and yes they are strong enough for the cover but are RUBBISH for applying TEC pressure

The lowest temp i could find on a i7 was 68c (over clocked) the average was way higher !! i figure 65c will be a clear winner .. but i would hope for far lower than that ... the next block will be better anyway no matter what the results are .. my educated guess will be a load temp of about 35c with at water temp of 20c i guess we will see though.

i dont know if the guy will have strong enough radiators for this rig though

that might be a nice name for it actually.

Would only work if it was nickel plated though. Otherwise it just doesn't work so well .
PS (It really would look awesome in nickel .)
