Here is an aluminum CPU cooling block that I made for socket 478.
links dont work m8
coool how deep are the cuts for the water
That's nice looking. Like a happy fish.
LOL dude! I smell fishy!.
anyway you did a great job! nice block!
Really nice work, what did you do it with? It looks so professional.
A sherline CNC mill.
very good use of it
nice work, although it looks like its going to be pretty damn restrictive, quite a pressure drop across it would think
i think it depend by the pump for he has thinked this block.
if he has a little pump it can be good
ny chance you can explain why a little pump would be better.
I assume you mean lower flow rate pump by little, in this case, the flow would still loose the same percentage of its speed going through the block, however due to the lower initial velocity there would be a lower overall drop when compared to a higher flow rate pump. However this isn't any good since the flow would spend too much time in the block and not remove enough heat. Personally i think a nice powerful pump would be the order of the day to get the flow going as fast as possible. The design of the fin pattern internally looks good and so should be pretty efficient at transferring the heat into the water, so the faster you can get the water through the block the better, also the faster the flow the lower the effect of the slower flow at the surface (i can't remember the technical term off the top of my head and can't be arsed to dig out the CFD textbook).
I guess it all boils down to whether it is going to be the only block in the loop or whether its going to be run with any other blocks. Alone, it should be fine, but with others that are fairly restrictive you could see a fairly slow flow.
yes,what i want to said was that with a low flow rate pump there isn't soo much pression and it can be no so much restrictive.
teh percentage it can lose probably will be the same,but the pump will not forced and will not have some problems with the pression.
sorry but for my is to difficult to explain in english
