New Water Block from AquaExtream (Cooltechnica)

I see it is posted on cooltechnica.com so I guess I can post here here now.

I got a MP-05 in hand with all 3 nozzels along with a White Water LE (all copper) and a TDX.

Will update on the MP-05 with some pics as soon as I can.

Is this block produced by Cooltechnica or are they distributing for an OEM?

This block is Bruce's design I am almost certain.

It is, thay also produce them from what I understand.

I also noticed the one I got is not the one shown on the site. Seems there will be more than one version of this block.

With the N03 nozzle plate, at first glance it appears to be strikingly familiar in design and principle to an AlphaCool NexXxoS HP Pro crossed with an AlphaCool NexXxoS XP Rev2 base-plate.

Of course, I could be wrong. Just going by what I can see of it.

Indeed, count the pins though. The standard MP-05 has 270pins. The one I have has a different number though (higher). The Nexxos XP I belive has 143? Not sure on the Rev2 though.


According to my micrometer the pin area on my version is approx .614" x .816". Each pin is approx .020". they very slightly of course. This block will be restrictive.

Rev 2 XP has 168 pins. (12 x 14 pin grid array)

The AquaComputer Cuplex XT has 165 pins (13 x 13 pin grid array, minus the 4 corner pins)

Yep - When I saw 270 I was (mistakenly) thinking of the Swiftech MCW600x and its number of pins (281) and thought that applied to the German "twins".

Still - somewhat like a more pinned version of what I said (HP Pro / XT). Better break out the 50 micron micro-strainers for this one - my ~150 micron micro-irrigation strainer struggled to keep the HP Pro I have here clog-free, having to strain the water multiple times.

Thinking the same thing on the strainer. I just installed one on my test bench loop for such blocks. Someone was going to send me a Cuplex XT but they never got around to it. Looked like a nice block.

Do you have a White Water LE from CoolTechnica? Heavy block but nice.

In my view it's a block that mixes the exterior design of the Storm with the interior design of this Nexxos XT prototype block, announced some time back,(http://www.nokytech.net/actualites/4852.html ) but to my understanding didn't came out to market with this name (Nexxos XT), because in the meantime Aquacomputer launched it's Cuplex XT,taking advantage of some delays.
As you can see the Nexxos XT is a more pinned version of the other variants (HP/XP).

that's very interesting Jag... our SP base plate is still a bit different though.

The overall design of the BP was inspired from Morphling1's block.
http://forums.procooling.com/vbb/sho...ght=morphling1

I've been exploring the possibilities that Morphling1 offered with that block (based on your WW design ofcourse) for quite some time. The micro-pins are inspired mostly from Jaydee's, Volenti's, #Rotor's and Roscal's previous BPs. Also thanks for the single inlet / outlet version of the WW that you sent me long time ago. I tried so many different BP thicknesses, based on the tips that you e-mailed me regarding the WW ages ago, I don't remember the exact count now. pH tested some of the protos back in February but they were quite restrictive. Those BPs were different than the one in the MP-05 now though.

The Jets nozzle idea came from BigBen2K.
http://forums.procooling.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=6101

The straight threaded barbed fitting with an O-Ring was used by D-Tek on their blocks ~2yrs ago. AFAIK, Danny over at D-Tek is the one using 9/16-18 threaded barb with O-Ring for the 1st time on the Spiral, TC-4, WW etc. The barbs that I'm using on the WW-LE and MP-05 blocks are custom made with an ID of .41" ( 10.5mm ) BTW.

As for the top and USMA design. I changed the design of the USMA for the WW-LE, that I couldn't release before June. I lowered the sides of the new copper WW-LE top, underneath the USMA, simply because the Copper top is ~3x heavier than the AL top. So basically my main concern was reducing weight. Then had to get rid of the sides of the USMA so that it won't interfere with the caps on the motherboards.

BTW, use of Delrin was Jon Fettig (JFettig) 's idea, and he is the one that used Delrin on his blocks for the 1st time AFAIK . So he definitely deserves credit for it.

Anyway, with micro-pins or not, the MP-05 blocks are built around the same principles that was featured in your White Water and other blocks by Pro/Coolers such as #Rotor, BigBen2k, Jaydee, JFettig, Morphling1, Roscal, Volenti ...

You'll be receiving the all 3 versions of the MP-05 blocks (MP-05 Pro, MP-05 Xtreme and MP-05 SP), WW-LE and some other stuff soon Stew.

I noticed you mention 3 versions of mp-05. How are they different from each other?

Good for them, yet anouther solution to advise when people ask for a good "kit". Assuming they put it in their "kit" builder.

Competition is always good.
