939 Block IVA project UK

Hello all!! im Pete and I will be making a water block so I came here for inspiration and tips and help etc.

Basically I have seen jadees designs and they are v good, I will have all necessary equipment drill, lathe, milling machine, drill bits, saw’s , dremel , copper block.

I have been discussing my ideas mainly in the extreme forums http://xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=73527 take a look. Basically I think I have come to the conclusion that a water block impingement design is best, now all I need to know is how to go about it?

1. get copper block pref 1/2inch thick
2. Mill out the area that’s going to contain all the holes?


I want the top to be made from acrylic so it looks nice, also I will be having one inlet, 1 out let

I have all the dimensions to the hole to hole width on any 939 board check here

is that the right kind of idea? I still am left in the dark about how that will look 3d!?

All I no is that I have to drill down a certain depth then keep drilling loads of holes of “x” diameter then link them up with a 1mm cutter blade on a dremel?

As you can see I need help

Thank you

I would have replied earlier, but waterblock making is Jaydee's (and other people's) area than mine. Good luck!

Completely missed this thread. Attached is a 3D pic of my Lumpy Channel Block in Solid Works 2003. Here is a pic of the actual base:

Here is my little write up on the block: http://www.customcooledpc.com/lumpychannel.htm and here is pH's review of the block: http://www.procooling.com/reviews/ht...lock_revie.php
