BUT I DONT WANNA!!


and i dont really get cranky when im sleepy in the morning lol just giggly like a stoned person and i misplace my tools allot till i get that second or third cup of coffee in me

side note. im screwing around in a CAD program at the moment. dose any one have any good pictures of a full coverage 5850 water block?

im thinking of making some blocks for my dig to go full water at some point. and we are expecting to get a couple new manual milling machines and a whole bunch of new end mills of various sizes at work in the next couple months and i have a drawing for a CPU block that im going to try and make when we get them.

i would use one of the CNC mills but i dont know how to program them and we dont have any mills small enough for what i want to do at the moment

Ok, here you go. I tried to get just the pics but even when you zoom you only get a thumnail downloaded. If you click on each product, the page it links to has .pdf links to product specs that show dimensions, everything but the drafting of the actual channels.

Let me know if you want more. There are plenty of block makers out there.

do you think could i get a link to this page that you found please? i want to see if its actually with in my ability to do this. im pretty sure i can but i just want to be as sure as i can before i start ripping up blocks of copper... that stuffs NOT cheap

so after hours of reading and thinking and planing and scraping and planing again i decided to forgo the H50 mod and instead go back to the plan for FULL WATER COOLING when i get access to the new mill we are getting at work i will start fabricating my parts but to get to that i need to start planning now. (im a perfectionist when it comes to my CAD drawings. im going to try and make a CPU water block for and AM3 socket (copper and acrylic) and a res that connects 2 separate loops (3 inlets 2 outlets)

i want to run my CPU as Res=>pump =>120mm rad =>CPU block => res and a GPU loop like res=>pump=>2x120 rad=> GPU block 1=> block 2=>res


CPU loop rad placement:
im going to use my cooling duct as planned with the idea for the modded H50 a few pages back with a radiator in the duct with tubes coming out the bottom back into the case for the CPU loop. im pretty sure i can get away with a single 120mm rad for a Phenom II x4 965 with a decent OC and not have to worry too much about it.

GPU loop rad placement:
im going to drill out the HDD cage and cut it down so i can have the full length of the bottom of the case (-the PSU) for a 2x120mm rad (it will fit) and have the planed cover for the PSU duct some of the intake air from the front 120mm fan into a chamber with the radiator (with fans) and have it vent out the bottom of the case witch will be getting new feet to get it a little higher than the stock plastic feet.

from their the two loops will run as normally as possible to the blocks and back to the res


if you have any suggestions on this idea that would be WONDERFUL and i would love to hear them

special thanks to BriSleep for helping me out yesterday and giving me all kinds of info +rep for that btw

be sure to check the MOTM thread if you haven't already and vote Striker36 like all the cool people do!

I don't know, it's pretty secretive stuff you know. Man, don't watch any more 4 hour movies with the wife, makes me too sleepy.

There, these look simple compared to some I've seen. Swiftech doesn't show the guts, just the contact parts. Danger Dens is really simple, you can see through the faceplate, here's a thread:
http://www.dangerden.com/forums/view...hp?f=7&t=11494
I can't seem to find the one that I said had a lot of swirls in it, it may have been on the water cooling board. Here's Koolances version: http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...=more&nindex=1

Ok, remember I was telling you about the tiny channels on my CPU block. I know you probably can't get this small but here's a pic: Attachment 152184 They're micro-channels but it look more like a scratch pad or 50 grit sandpaper laid out in a pattern. Anything to tranfer heat will help.

Seeing as it's Friday, you'll get more answers from the experinced people than guys with 10 posts to thier name so.... you should post on the W/C thread and ask if anyone has pics of a custom 5850 block, I'm pretty sure that's where I saw the one with the swirls.

I'll be back later with some ideas as to how to route your loop.

thanks for the links Bri! ill check them out tonight or tomorrow as im just about to leave work and im going home just long enough to grab a bag and im driving to visit my incredible girlfriend at school.

i think im just gonna use my current thread over their (two loops one res) and keep that alive instead of spamming the board with all kings of noob questions.

how small i can get my channels is all dependent on how much money im willing to spend on endmills i found some all the way down to 3/64th for like 10 bucks (each + shipping) so i should be all set for that im thinking 1/16th inch spacing will be more than adequate and allow for decent flow vs restriction

i still need more accurate measurements before i can finalize my design any way so ill start working on that seriously when i get my mobo in a couple weeks

gonna try and get an Asus formula iv ROG Extreme 890fx if i can find one in stock for ~$300 +shipping. that's where i think they will be at least considering the non extreme one is about $250 MSRP

so i want to run a 2 loop water cooling system in the reactor (you know... cus nuke plants are all water cooled ) one loop for GPUs (and maybe mobo if they actually make blocks for it) and another for CPU only.

here is the plan.



im thinking of running both loops from one res (custom made by me with 3 inlets and 2 outlets) then from the res to separate pumps (will be moved from the image above to being side by side behind the HDD cage that will be cut) then to the radiators (CPU loop using a singe 120mm rad in the "cooling duct" and GPU loop using a 240 on the floor venting down) then from the rads to the blocks back to the res.

what do you guys think of this plan. i know space is a bit tight in the case and pumps are somewhat large but as you know im not opposed to cutting stuff up to make it work. the real question is what do you think of the water solution.

thanks in advance!

and thanks for all the votes for MOTM you are all too wonderful. but we still need a few more to win so if you haven't voted GO DO IT!

If your using one res, wouldn't that be a single loop?

yes and no. it would eb 2 loops that are dumping into and drawing out of the same place.
the res is a common location but from the outlets to the inlets it would be entirely separate.

my thinking is that if i use a large res (as large as i can comfortably fit) i can have both loops dump into the res allowing for some turbulence to use as a gauge to make sure the pumps are working and inevitably a little cooling (not much but it any helps right?) then each loop will have a separate outlet to its own pump and rad making it its own loop.

im thinking of using a 2x120 for the GPU loop as they will be hotter than the CPU loop and will need cooler water going into the blocks for maximum cooling and a 120mm for the CPU as the 965 processor doesn't run all that hot to begin with and has a pretty good range so im not overly worried about slightly warmer water in that side (shoudl i be?)
