While I imagine to make a simplistic block wouldn't be too hard, the internal designs have become rather intricate the past couple of years with microchannels and such. And thus to get the better performance of today's blocks, you need those types of advancements. Good Luck.

Careful with that sterling silver. As I understand it, sterling is significantly less effective than pure silver as an antimicrobial agent.

It's not an immediate concern, but I figured I'd best warn you so you can tweak your solution to bacterial growth before it becomes a problem.

Not true, I have a custom handbuilt block and its within a couple degrees on idle and load of my heatkiller 3.0. BUT,t he block is very restrictive and not lapped yet, so once mods are done, it should be on par, if not better than the hk 3.0.

So, if you know what you are doing, you might get better results than you think. And although a homemade w/c loop might sound cool, its probably gonna look jenky as all getout. That can be considered a taste tho. Good luck tho!

Honestly, I doubt it'll match it. And then there are blocks out there that are beginning to leave the HK 3.0 in the dust, so that's beside the point even if it does.

The quality of manufacturing available to companies producing waterblocks and the continued engineering and improvement upon past designs is pretty hard to outmatch. I'm willing to agree that building a home-made waterblock might be fun, but it won't match the performance of the newly developed blocks from quality manufacturers.

I think this kind of thing is going to be relegated to novelty pretty soon, because it'll become clear that no one can build a block compared to what they can buy without state-of-the-art CNC machine tools.

All same clocks, OC wise, etc...

HK 3.0
idle: 32C
load: 53C (OCCT linpack)

SWISH block: Idle 31C, and due to flow restrictions in the block, idle slowly rises with on time...
Load: 55 - 58C+ over time

HK3.0 stomps it right now, but my custom block needs lapped and the flow increased, which is a mod I have planned for this weekend. I'm also re-thinking a small part of the mounting system, trying to give board more even support. The block is made in 3 layers, the milled copper, acrylic second layer which blends to outputs to one exit barb, and top acrylic for seal.

Sorry to hijack, lol.

On topic: I'm very interested to see some pics of this too. And I will try to help anyway I can if need be. Subb'd

but they used in they used it in the hospitals as anti-septic until the 1980s because of the price xD

FACT:their was the time during the war where silver cost less then coppperxD

It's not required, but you can if you want.

Before high-speed internet became the norm a lot of people were still using dial-up, with some ISPs charging a set rate per MB downloaded. Posting '56K Warning' or something similar was meant to tip those users off that the thread had a large number of pics in it, thus potentially saving those people $$$.

These days it's mostly used tongue-in-cheek as a way to tell others that you're posting a ton of big-ass pics.
