well what i would imagine would be something like this
connecting the main block to the axillary block and then back, of similar diameter to a large heat pipe. BTW these are just ideas right now and i honestly don't have the money right now with a part time job, and college coming up, to buy an SR-2, but if i ever need a custom block I think ill come to you

mine?

Also, I'm using an iwaki RD30 @ 18W on the loop, so too much restriction with those fins could cause an issue... any chance you could widen them up a bit?

Oh Man, every time I look at this thread it makes me feel weird. Not sure if I want to cry because I certainly can't afford an SR2 board and your blocks or else I'm on the verge of having the big O just from drooling over your work.

Amazing and great attention that you are paying to things.

Should things pick up and I get solvent with some extra cash, I will definately be after you for a block since my next build is going to be an SR2 one.

Keep up the good work and can't wait to see the next photos.

Bill

Gentlemen, I appreciate the kind words. If anyone is interested by all means shoot me a PM for any details.

making the fins wider sort of defeats the purpose.

I am doing all the top blocks at one time since the machine is already set up to do so. Then when all the tops are done I will do all the bottoms, then comes the pretty up phase.

I did some rough math on my fins surface area to clarify any restriction questions. I found this kind of interesting actually.

The area of a ½" circle is 0.19625
3.14 x (.25)²


The area of my fins is 0.1125
(.18 deep x .125 wide x 5 spaces)
Attachment 205573

While this may seem like restriction, consider this:

The cross sectional area of a bitspower fitting is 25/64ths, which is 0.11978
3.14 (0.1953125)²

Attachment 205572

So in all actuality there is a 0.007280 restriction in the area where water will be passing through the fins. That is read as Seven Thousandths of an inch, or possibly the thickness of a 2 sheets of paper?

I try to design my blocks with the lowest restriction as possible using a ½" pipe cross sectional area as a guideline. Sometimes I can get it, sometimes I just can't. Either way as long as my block channels have more cross sectional area then a bitspower fitting, then my block isn't what is restricting.

Thanks for the clarification, I'm no mathamatician, but I do not want to blow a gasket on a $5k rig... let alone a sexy solid copper block

Another question for you, with this o-ring cord stock, do you/can you/is it possible to fuse the two ends together? or is that as good as it get's , I'm just curious. loving the look of the block, and I understand the batch process might I ask how many are in this batch? if that's not something you'd like to publicly disclose, PM me.

Beautiful work I'm stoked.

loctite 404 works good from my understanding, they use to make o-rings for hydraulic parts, which operate at much higher pressures

You sir are very well informed. That is the exact glue sitting next to me as we speak.

H3||:
A batch just means a few block at a time. When machining parts and you have a few of them, it takes a while to set up your CNC machine to make specific parts/things. Basically it makes my life easier by making all the tops at once, then all the bottoms because all the screw holes line up, and all the tool paths are the same. Just involves a "jig" that doesn't move.
