post #81 of 177
Yeah, for ATM

But, that's soon to change with the completion of V5 & V6......so the club won't be near as exclusive then

It is the lightest yet and from what I can tell right now is very close to an intel stock cooler in weight.
It's impressive to note that you chose to keep the heaviest of the lot for your own pesonal use. At just 9oz shy of 1 1/2 pounds that alone would make most folks shy away from its use. But, than again you are far from most folks
Hell, my current HS minus fan....Alpha PAL8045...weighs in at just over 3 1/2Lbs which puts my temps in the range of most non-custom WC'ers.

Yeah #2 is big with a 2"x2.5" main block and a full 1/4" thick brass top and the extra barb. I wasn't too concerned about weight though after talking to people who had some huge air coolers like yours.
About the V numbers: I started giving the blocks V (version) numbers because up to this point no two are alike and it signifies changes I have made, but I really like V4 and may stick with it for awhile.

Then threr's no since waiting on that V8

Yeah, I definitely relate to improved refinements and revision # from my many enhanced reworkings of my line of successful guitar/knife creations. You kinda stick with those sweet spots awhile before moving on.

Oh, been meaning to ask how well that gasket feature works as opposed to an O-ring? Doesn't cause the bolts to be more suseptable to srtipping out due the added torx, right?

The gasket seems to work fine, I took mine apart after 6 months to look at it and all is good. I silicone them with RTV too and when I took it apart the entire gasket was the texture of rubber, I doubt they will ever leak. You don't have to wait, read your PM
