Cor Leonis

Welcome to my first water cooled project, Cor Leonis (heart of the lion).
I haven't made any drawings for this but I have prepared some sketch up images for the log to give you an idea of what's going on, so I'll get straight into it and explain as things progress.


In the following images you can see that the graphics card will mount parallel to the motherboard with the aid of a PCIex extender. I've also included the two blocks here, and the thing to note is that there will be no tubing this side of the board. All the tubing will be around the back of the board, between it and the PSU. I'll leave any more details for the progression of the project, I think it's more interesting like that.







I have already played around with making some water cooling gear for the past month.


As usual I start building from the inside out. The first and central part is the motherboard/GFX tray. This is only a little different from the norm in that it not only holds the mobo but also has an extra level to hold the GFX card. This is made from 4mm plate and the only thing to measure initially is the width of the board I'm going to use (mATX). The length of this piece is just a guess including all the bends for the second tier.



Now before work can progress its necessary to fit the motherboard. The positions for the standoffs are taken straight off the board.







The GFX card is mocked up with the extender so I can get a look at where to mark the first bend and also to measure the height and where the standoffs for the GFX card will go.









Then the details are cut and filed.







I usually score the bend line to give a nice, tight bend, but with this thickness a score line wont be enough. I use my little trimmer with a 3 mm bit to make a trench 2 mm deep, then with a square file, make a ninety degree 'V'.







The bends are then started in the brake but completed on the bench by hand.









Then the standoffs and mobo refitted.



Then some standoffs are fitted to the GFX card to get a look. The card is higher than I hoped but I wanted to retain access to all the connectors under it. I may swap the standoffs for some rubber grommets and get a few mm back.







That's all I've done so far so I'll be back when some more works been done.

Nice thoughts there, flipping the card around that way by using an PCIe-extender.

Why not? Just make use of more flex extenders.



Awesome beginning and love the block development, a little disappointed that you didn't go for anything more ambitious than a labyrinth, but your work can be considered nothing less than perfectionist.

I didn't notice the name of the OP, so I just started thinking "Crikey, this guy is good, very similar to OldNewBy

Great to see you back at it again Attila, fantastic work on the bends.

Do those GPU extenders work that efficiently? I have no reason not to believe they do, but always been hesitant about them.

Ditto, I've had several thoughts on where they could be useful but have always hesitated for fear that they might bottleneck the components potential.

Same as everyone else though mate, I'm excited to see this develop

Oh, sh*t!
This will be awesome fun.
-Not for you, though. the control wiring is under the graphics card. Wiring that up is gonna suck, man.
Edit: D*mn. No 90 degree SATA ports, either. I learned you can't fold a SATA wire directly off the plug not to long ago. They break really easy there.

Make case/win kit for new case/win kit for new case... You've set up some kind of perpetual motion machine!

Just one wish - knowing the thread will be flooded with praises and people crying for an update, could you please add the date of update to the topic each time ally you add something, so it's easy to see from the listing? Thanks!

Also just checked the water block stuff and am wondering if I should be crazy inspired or just leave the hobby, knowing I'll never make anything as pretty

Needless to say, keeping an eye on this.

Monkey Puzzle has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Great to see another project underway Atilla! Love your work, and not meaning to be a party-pooper, but why not simply use the blue cover block in your sketchup over the GPU to cover a koolance gpu-220 or Swiftech MCW80 gpu only block? I love your work, but I can't see a simple labyrinth/snake type design working as well as commercially available blocks.
Watercooling blocks have evolved away from those types of designs as they don't work very well compared to impingement plate & microfin/micropin blocks, and need high flow to perform well.
