    after 2 hours and 30 minutes,with prime 95,S&M,toast sisoftware sandra,and playing doom3 hl2 etc...temperature stay around 33°C at max.
    in idle i've 28°C->full load 33°C.
    when test finisched it return to 28°C approssimatly in 2 minutes(1minute and 40 seconds).
    i hope you like it.
    the misures are: 7,2 cm of diameter and 1,7cm for the height of the body.
    0,7 cm for height of the upper part.
    it was to difficult to work beacause was cilindric,but i'm very happy for the results.
    i should start a new block(for a frineds)this day,if i can i'll post you the images.
    bye

    thanks :)
    the silver compoundr is the Sn(sorry but i don't know english name for this metal,in italian"stagno")(metal used to weld).
    it's not a aperfect weld but on a cylindric block was too hard for me.

    Oh yes welding =) i also dont know it in english , only swedish =P
    Well it seems to work really well for you, im currently in the process of building a computer myself , and is planning on a watercooled system , havent decided yet tough , because my goal is still to keep it as simple as possible , becuase this will be the first computer im building ever=) ,,,,It seems as if the copper surfice on that waterblock shines up pretty nice from polishing =) maybe you could polish the whole thing;) hehe , im a bit shiny crazy , i guess the looks of a computer aint that important to everyone , maybe performance comes first hand. Anyways great job and good luck with the second block =P

    thanks.
    if you are building up your pc good work !.
    if you have to buy watercooling components i suggest you to buy asetek or danger den,or if you want stranger block....our italian block,in italy we have 3 good producer with excellent performances,if you want to know send me a privatemessage and i link you italian companies

    if you want to build up by yourself a watercooling system,you can make a waterblock...and a radiator(it's simple,you can make it with 4 or more copper tubes and model the shape into a spiral.connect the tubes with a digged copper block(or another metal)[two small tank with the fittings).eventually you can make a plexy container and connect to it 1 or 2 12*12 cm fans.
    the radiator it's make and you should buy only a pump and a tank(you can make it with plexy).pump push water into a little radiator tank trought fitting,here the water across copper tube and the fans cool it,in the second tank water across the second fitting to return into the tank.
    i hope you kan understand :hip:

    for english......your seems to be good,it's mine which have some problems :waah:
    i'know only basic and my english is horrible,i hope you can understand my message :D
    i hope to improve my english with some stranger forum like this.

    and its soldering not welding
    that silver stuff is tin solder.

    welding is melting two metals together so it becomes one piece in a way. soldering is using a substance such as solder to create a joint without melting the metal you started with.

    Damn ;) hate the fact that almost all other countries have such a broad selection of cooling products, and sweden has very few supplyers. thx for the links Gioz i´ll check them out=)

    very very nice job.

    i think youve inspired me to start work on my own block... everything else ive seen ends up costing more then the premade ones, but offer no preformance gain... kindof depressing

    i want to integrate a peilter into it too.
