Default More block madness

Here's my latest creation. It is designed on a much smaller scale but still with limited restriction. Water is going to be in and out of their quickly, with good velocity and fairly decent surface area for such a small space. What does everyone think?

Not yet. I still need to finnish the bottom with a few mill bit passes at the edges and lap it.

Thanks, the top is made of bulletproof glass, not planning on it to ever crack

Can you get a closer top-down shot? The center looks like a volcano... is that what you were going for?

It reminds me of a little volcano or mountain or something. quite scarry.

Was that a dremel creation? Maybe just a big grinder?

Ive always had an idea for your blocks, so I'll just spill it now. Just for sake of testing, I was thinking of a hole drilled straight down into the "mountain top" with four holes drilled into the sides of the "mountain" so that a small amount of watter would be forced inside the copper comming out the bottom further turbulating the already turbular water

simply madness!

I bet that sucker has alot of time behind it.

I only see one minor issue that may not be an issue at all.

We as a comunity are struggling to get all this cooling hardware into smaller and smaller cases. Do U think that with having those outlets like that would case kink problems with the processor being so close to the power supply? Wont that have to be a big hard bend for the tubing?

Just inquiring.

Still... mad block man. NICE!

Bigger pics please!

it's deffiniatly an original design, looks like it would induce very turbulant coolant, and should have good flow. Nice job.

U know what.... im a moron. after looking back at the pics I understand now.

the fogged plastice is the machined part of the top. U know if U use wd-40 while machining, it will help make it clear. use alot, cause it looks like it was melting on U when U were machining it.

Are the outlet barb mounts part of the top, or are they seperate pieces? If seperate, how to you put them together?

I have made a compromise on the angle for the barbs. It is drying now and I will test it tonight. Here's a pic of the final, fully functional (yes I even lapped it) waterblock, what do you think?

Fixitt, you will not be able to see that part of the block when looking at it so I didn't have much concern over the see through aspect there.

Yes they are seperate. They are cut and tapped and welded in place with a two part plastic welding compound which is waterproof, withstands temps of -40C to +200C, and +3000psi bond strength. The piece I tested the compound with has been hammered on repeatedly to try to get the joint to seperate and it has held up strong.
