Silver watercooling (my 1st one)

Well hi there new to the forum..
I've been busy with my 1st wc system making everything my self (or with help from my dad who is an euhm Goldsmith? my english is sucky but anyways)
My wc CPU block is as good as finished just some plugs on it and it's ready.
CPU Block is made of 100% pure silver.
Making a reservoir of PVC pipes with screwable top
and the radiator is made of Copper pipes.
I'm gonna make it external.

Here are some pics to start with:

Downloaded and extracted but file is unopenable? Maybe try to save as a .dxf and then zipping it?

I'll try .dxf and try to zip, thank you for your patience! I know G and M code and can't seem to figure out this highly complex Winzip! LOL (and it's not in 3, 4, or even 5 axes!) How sad...

That's it!

Can't believe I can't figure this out! Maybe it's the lack of sleep for 36 hours? I don't know....

Pirs, that looks like the vga block is going to break the card. You should think about making a pci slot supporter.

Thank you Breach.

The performance of the F4 and Hydrae are similar to that of some commercial blocks and in any case is sufficient, the Hydrae has the advantage of being very slightly restrictive. Though soon I will prove them with sufficient means, I enjoy more during the construction that with the performance.

This block is very simple, just a copper slab and a pipe with the bottom half filed away:



VGA block, see farther down for internal design


CPU block, similar internal design as the vga block




Inside the VGA block






The block is CNC'ed (I have ten more at home, the time per piece was only 15 minutes so I made some during some free time at school.

The VGA block is quite restrictive, mainly because of the built in 90degree turns.
