I think all the first batch will be gone by the time the block finally gets to Phaestus's hands. Have already flagged the machinists to get a second batch going.

Actually the machinists didn't make as many as I had originally asked for in this first batch, which has somewhat messed up my plans. Had expected this first batch to last for 10 weeks, but it looks like it'll be gone in 2-3 weeks. Might be a 2-3 week hiccup in-between while getting the second batch on-line. After that it should be smoother sailing.

how long do you expect to offer these blocks then? just two batches?

I never know. For as long as I can be bothered I guess is the best answer. The chance of me being "bothered" is directly proportional to the amount of time I have to spend on it. Fortunately Storm has a pretty low "bother" factor in comparison to either the White Water or especially the Cascade.

Another Q if you get a break from your one-legged ass kicking contest...

What does the resistance curve for the G4/5 look like, or is this classified?

I'd assume it's steeper for the 5 compared to the 4, but assumtion doesn't go very far.

I guess I should have been checking on this more often. I see the first batch sold out in two days, impressive, but flustrating as well.
Will you be taking orders for the G5 Ag version of the Storm prior to the second batch of Cu blocks? Would you be accepting orders for G5's now?

Thanks Cathar! And glad to see you have another new world beater on the market!

Don't have a 5 to measure yet. Will let you know when I do. Subject to being tweaked at this stage anyway.

G4 PQ curve is not classified at all. Have stated figures on a number of occasions, even quite early in the game. Here's some data points that have not been done with the correct equipment, but in general what I measure is typically within 10% or so of what others have measured with the good stuff.

~1.9mH2O PD @ 5LPM. ~5.8mH2O @ 8.5LPM, ~7.8mH2O PD @ 10LPM.

I don't know exactly when. Too early to tell. Send me an email and I'll stick you on a notification list.

Cathar, what are you idle and max temps running with the iwaki MD30 with the Storm G5. And what speed ur running at. I am curious to compare temps (I know temps arnt comparable for the most part but i will ask anyway). Thanks in advance.

overclock is the only comparabe stat, and I believe his best stable is around 2900mhz

I know very well that they arnt comparable and I even stated that, but im just curious. I just want to know if my temperatures are in the ballpark (within 5 to 7C) of his temps.

BTW: Thanks for stating his OC greenman.

MaxxxRacer, I'm running an Abit AN7, which may not be of much help to you. No real point in trying to compare anyway. Even using Abit NF7-S Rev 2.0 boards I've seen temperatures vary by up to 10C depending on the board, and then by a further 10C depending on the BIOS loaded.

With the consequential ~20C variations occurring on NF7-S boards, a "5-7C ballpark" is an exercise in futility, even if I had the same type of mobo as you.

Mother BLEEP... 20C! Well its ok, i just restarted my comp and the temp went from 95F to 105F. How that makes sens is beyond me.... These termal diodes need to die. i wish i had the on die reading of the temp.

Well thanks anyway cathar... If Im in the market for a cpu block whenever I do get one, I will be sure to get yours... Hopefully you are still making blocks then.

One Q, when are you going to stop teasing us and show us an inside shot of the storm. I cant wait to see what you came up with.

as soon as the first batch is shipped, you can bet people will be popping theirs open

I wouldn't dare open mine. I might inadvertantly compromise the block's integrity with my unnecessary poking around and lose 1C or 2C, never to be recovered.

More than none. Less than lots.

A lot changed in the space of a few hours after writing that post. The whole lot was accounted for in 36hrs. Even if I had the full batch size as requested, I doubt that the lot would have lasted even 60hrs.

Hmmm, not the answer that I wanted...
Did you send it to someone how will make a review? Or will that have to wait?

Default Appropriate Storm fluids?

Same as anything else?
Same as Cascade?
Viscosity sensitivity? (I'm not planning to use glycol but some other folks may).
I've never had a problem with algae or other slime - and have always used distilled water (usually with Zerex "Racing Coolant" at 10%). The water's not exposed to light (IMHO the major reason I haven't had algae problems). This'll be an all-copper (or brass) loop so maybe I can skip the corrosion protection package altogether...?
Particulate sensitivity? Is off-the-shelf distilled water OK or does it make sense to filter it first - and if so, with what? I don't have access to chemistry lab gear - and I'm unsure as to whether running the water through something like a Melitta coffee filter might make things worse (invisible paper fibers) rather than better.
I'm running a Eheim/Innovatek HPPS (for silence) which is essentially a 1046 with slightly-better-than-1048 head - so at the low end of what the Storm was designed for - and I'd prefer to avoid running a filter in-line if I can...
