Nothing revolutionary, but it does the job fairly well - opening up alot more leeway for overclocking than my old Sk7.

I just like making sure there is a continuous seal around the waterway perpendicular to the direction the clamping force is applied, although, it is probably not too necessary at low water pressures.

I originally only had it like that because it was much easier to machine that way.

But it occured to me afterwards that it wouldn't be hard to change the design, I've been trying to make a cascade type centre piece and then drill a grid array of small holes partially into the centre of the base plate. It's proving trickier than anticipated though.

I suppose it does mean your losing some performance there, but with some designs, (eg. the cascade mentioned above) I wouldn't of thought it would have that much of a detrimental effect.

I guess I will post my most recent completion. PJX.






My soldering still needs work but it doesn't leak.

Performance? I will let pH handle that. It will get sent to him sooner or later. Not expecting great numbers though.

You wasted $0.004 worth of excess solder there. Mass production finds the minimum, but you can afford heavy joints. BTW Liquid Paper correction fluid is a good flux/solder resist.

Will give that Liquid paper stuff a shot. Got some around here somewhere.

watercoolerking: Look at the internals of the Swiftech6000 block for a way to improve that last block of your (need to route the water through the pins farthest from the outlet). Looks good though.

I want to offer to test submitted waterblocks
By the program COSMOS FLOWORK. Can send to me:
anttech@mail.ru
The drawings should be exact, with the instruction(indication) of the sizes.
Better in a format GIF, PAINT, compressed no more 100êá.
The results (C/W) can be spread on a forum.
Parameters of virtual testing: capacity of a heater-120w,
The charge of water 100 l/hours, heater AMD 9,5*12*1 mm.
Input(entrance) an output(exit) of water of 8 mm.
I ask to excuse me for bad English (electronic translation).

Have a similar design for my GPU-block but havent got there yet. (still on my CPU-block and have way to much work at the moment!)
