Building a CPU Waterblock - Page 4

The machining for both the baseplate and the delrin top are within ~20 bucks of each other, this stuff gets real expensive. It looks like, for 3 blocks, it'll cost ~120 bucks per block.

Wow!! That puts your price for this almost 3 hundo!
That is expensive. You going to do it?

Edit: 4 hundo!!

I doubt it; I'll need to make at least 3 revisions before it's ready to be shipped to everyone else, and then I'll need ~400 bucks to do 3 blocks...Unless someone privately finances me with the money to do the block revisions, It's a dead deal...

Benefits:
  • Better flowing than the Swiftech STORM or DangerDen RBX blocks
  • Better temperature difference as a result of better flow
  • Can be made to mount to any socket
  • Heavy-Duty block, uses a steel top plate and a copper bottom plate
    • Copper conducts the best amount of heat out of all metals besides silver and/or diamond
  • Design can be modified to accept a TEC/Peltier

Okay...I was a wee bit off on my pricing specs.

For a run of 4:
Each set will cost $115 Shipped to your door.

I'll need about 3 runs to get the design right though, so it'll be a bit more of an investment up-front.

Burn, I am looking into going water cooled for my Intel Pentium D machine (sig) and my AMD Athlon 64 X2 machine. IF I do go water I would want 1/2" ID tubing on both systems. Can you design blocks for graphics cards as well? Lastly, if you accept payment through paypal I could easily buy 2 CPU blocks and 2 GPU blocks (for X800XL and X1900XT) from you at a slightly "inflated" price to help you out The trouble is I won't be buying for a while and IF I do it will be only if somebody buys my laptop from me as that is the only way I'll get the cash. Sound like a deal to you?

If you can do GPU blocks for graphics cards, PM me about it but I would want a GPU only block for the X800XL and a full card solution like the DD X18 for my X1900XT.

And you did say that your CPU block can be made to fit any platform correct? I would need 1 s939 and 1 LGA775.

Dang! I need to get going on my own block.
How many people on here are really willing or wanting to by custom blocks?

Okay, an update! I found someone to prototype the entire block from start to finish! Name will not be mentioned, you know who you are You have no idea how thankful I am.

Anyway, the design went through several emergency modifications last night, and for good reason: The machined out pins area isn't big enough to cover the AMD or Intel IHS, so I redid the design with more pins, it will cover the entire package now. So, with a bunch of Delrin in hand, this person who will not be named will machine out for me the two parts tomorrow, ship them off, and I'll be cracking! I need to thread some stuff, but it'll work out great!

On another note, I need to begin to look where I'm going to get my copper and Delrin. Does anyone know online where to get these metals?

http://www.interstateplastics.com/ for the Acetal

Dangerden sells bars of copper, I dunno what size. You can probably find that a million other places tho, or at a scrap yard or something.

Woburn, Ma. should be close enough for cheap shipping of your metal needs:
http://www.admiralmetals.com/AdmiralWeb/index.jsp

For Plastic, Acetal, Delrin, Acrylic, Nylon, Nylatron, Polycarbonate, Teflon http://www.onlinemetals.com/ rocks, since it's out here in Seattle you may wanna pass on thier metals though.

Do you know if Admiral metals sells small quantities? I see it says contact for a quote which leads me to believe they do not. I have been buying from onlinematals.com, the shipping is a killer but they are one of the few who will sell small quantities.
