Appraisal: Handmade Waterblock

1338 10
This could be tough, a lot of time went into this and I know I could never get enough to pay for all that time but give it a shot. Remember it is one of a kind and not just a block but a showpiece as well. Before I sell it I am going to put it on my machine for testing. It is a remake of waterblock #1 which performed well before the modifications which include the addition of an accelerator built into the inlet barb to boost pressure, the base was thinned to .070"(1.78mm), 6 depressions were cut into the base .040 deep in the center.
also included in the sale:
mounting hardware
thermal grease 10% silver
extra intake barb without accelerator for high output pumps
spare gasket

It will fit : socket's 478,775,754,939,940

I couldn't make them that cheap unless it had an acrylic top and plastic barbs, too much work goes into making the tops out of brass or copper.

I have made myself another one with dual outlets so I have no problem selling or trading this one if the price is right.

I would say around 80 bucks. That's a one-of-a-kind block, VERY high-quality. The mounts are thick which means you won't break off the mounting plate or bend it, barbs won't crack or leak under pressure, a VERY high-quality showpiece in my opinion.

yeah nice work. if someone saw/knew the value in it id say $80 or so though i imagine it may be tough to find someone who doesnt just want a g4 or apogee since they are proven. again very nice work.
