Do you guys think that will be possible? Or these blocks combined with my CPU block will be uneven? Not sure if I explained my self properly. tongue.gif

I've you're using 19/12 or 16/10mm tube, you can easily bend a nice curve thumb.gif

It will be 16/11mm tubing, the thing is I want to use 90º angled adapter/fittings to keep straight lines, you think it'll be possible? tongue.gif

I don't want to do curves around the board like the picture I actually posted from my friend, I want all to be 90º angled adapters to make it as straight as possible.

Thinking of making waterblocks, using my mill and/or CNC, but I want to know what you guys look for in blocks, both aesthetically, and functionally?

Aesthetically, make them non-chunky. I don't really know how to explain it but the EK board block for the OC Force is absolutely gorgeous. It is all the same height and just looks good. Also, a mixture of materials like POM and copper and you could design them so that if someone wanted an acrylic top, it would easy on your end to make one.

Functionality wise it depends on what you're cooling certain waterblocks have specific channels and fin arrangements to ensure that the water cools the necessary areas of the product.

That OC Force block is a complete ripoff of Mips! I love their style, will probably try to mirror it with my own little twist.

Good luck, its a small market.

Clean looks are very popular now it seems. Square edges and flat surfaces are king. The EK block is not a rip off of the MIPS, where on earth did you get that conclusion from?

Clean is important. As someone mentioned, variety of materials is nice. Also, make sure the inlets/outlets are in good places and can fit even the larger compression fittings.

Try to find a signature that sets your design apart from the other guys. Example:

Koolance: All shiny silver finishes
EK: Acrylic tops
XSPC: Black top over acrylic, lit up by LED

Obviously there are many others, but those are the ones that came to mind immediately

I was thinking raw copper tops, with both a shiny and brushed style top, probably coated in a thin clear coat to prevent damage to the copper itself.

Water Water Everywhere...

Hey all!! Would you folks mind taking a look at these temps and telling me what you think? Here's the deal... I am moving part by part, as many of us do with our first water loops, into a full custom loop. Currently, I am using this H220, the original res/rad, an add-on 120, and more importantly, two EK 670 DCUII blocks and the EK CSQ bridge (all in my rig in the sig below).

Also, can you more experienced WC'ers out there tell me what I might expect from a fully custom loop with a snugly fit 250mm res, I don't know what pump I should use, and if it's worth looking at the Phobia 400 rad for the front since it's already modded a bit, and should I not have a rad at the top or the back for airflow??

Here are the temps I am getting now. The load is BF3 for 1 hour over 5760 x 1080. Not the most stable game in the world for overclockers... mad.gif




Here is the rig for easy visual reference again:

Now:




Before water, but the front situation is the same.



3820 @ 4.3
16GB @ 2133
SSD - OS only
SSD R0 - for games only
3TB HDD - Storage and games I dont want to re-download from Steam
670 4GB SLI @ +120 Core +200 Mem +100 CV +122 PL

So the goal of the rig is GAMING... almost exclusively outside of a few days a month I use it for a larger project for the screen real estate.

Thanks for your help!! Let me know if something doesn't make sense...
