[Build Log] "1337 Tech" custom CPU block LGA775/1155/1366 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
hmmm can melt silver with a blow torch, i found that out by sticking a blow torch on my GF's ring (Didnt think resizing would be too hard) and it turned into a blob in 5 seconds... since silver is a better conductor than copper might get 30 silver rings and melt them down and make a block XD

but really, its just simple, copper and aluminum is a no, so use something else. and ELEKTRIK_BLUE is right, its a lot harder than youd expect, not only that, but with the wrong tools it can be down right dangerous. thats why i havnt made one yet with a plunge router

Thank you very much guys. You are indeed correct; my mistake. Galvanic corrosion can happen easily with aluminum in water application. Thanks for pointing that out. We may ned to choose a different material for the top block then, as anodizing the aluminum would be out of the question (anodizing insulates and also cracks and breaks down once subjected to high heat).

@elektrik_blue: you're not making much sense man. This program can be run on a prototrac using an assortment of flat, tapered, and ball endmills. Honestly wouldn't take more than a a few hours to machine the entire thing. My friend (who is also on this forum and will post in here shortly) is an experienced tool and die maker, and has a lot of skill with cadcam machining, manual machining, bridgeport/six-axis/prototrac machines and we also have access to all of these machines. The manufacturing we are not worried about, it's the design.

EDIT: I would love to make the entire block out of silver... But silver is like $40/oz. Hahaha

Thanks. Let my friend post in here and he can talk all the real machinist jargon. I'm more of a developer/engineer with this stuff, he knows all the manufacturing technicalities. I just know the program we wrote is not as complex as it looks based on the final product. Hell, the most time consuming thing might be the engraving on the top block...

Hi there guys, I'm the machinist who wrote the program of which you've seen pictured. Elektric_blue, what kind of machines are you using? And what do you use / who does your programing if its cnc? I'm actually at work myself right now so I can't give exact dimensions but the bottom blocked will be roughed out with a .375 endmill, then mill the bottom with a .125(if I remember correctly) centerdrill, then the outside will be done with a .375 ball endmill. The longest part to mill will be the bottom and may be changed beforehand.

we use the vertmill we dont do all the computerized machining. we do it all manually via vertmill/endmill/lathe and good ole files and die grinders things of that sort our shop is far to small for anything else. i myself do pretty damn good this way however compared to cnc and other hightech tools its probably not as accurate. i wasnt exactly sure what tools the op had at his disposal. ive heard of alot of people trying to do this themselves or pay someone to do it for them and they dont have a lot of experience i do apologize for jumping to conclusions
