That is purely incredible man!! Love it!
Awesome! That gives the likes of MIPS and EK a run for their money!
Nice how the block is super right angeled. Looks sharp man!
Thermal paste and thermal pads are ok, but, you can't use both at same time, because thermal pads have more thickness than the paste when applied. My motherboard seems to have mosfets well aligned, probably I'll use thermal paste.
Anyway mosfets doesn't have any internal thermal sensors to see temperature differences. Anyone have a thermal camera?
"give a run for their money" = to be as good at something as someone who is known to be extremely good
At first I did not understand the phrase, but now I do. (I think..)
I give you props for doing that all on a manual mill. -Fantastic. You also have my respect for being able to figure out the o-ring diameter manually.
Really nice block you got there, love it, and nice to see youre using a manual mill too. When you were making the 45deg milling it looks like you angled the vice, did you? or did you use the X and Y feed together?
Absolutely beautiful work cmd_ & I like it even more with it being manual made . +rep .
That is amazing work!
Again, thanks all for replies and support
I rotated the vice 45 degrees, do this with X / Y axis at same time is for experienced guys, to do this you need a lot of coordination
Where is the 45 degree milling?
Very nice lines to this, clean and tasteful.
Subbed for sure.
20th Update [17th Aug 2010] Opening a window
Hi and wellcome back to all. With this little update I want to show you the new window. I made it with a dremel and files. Later I want to use an smoked plexiglass.
Very cool, simplicity is the name of the game here for sure I smell a MDPC entry
That water block is SWEET, so clean, I'd love to be able to do stuff like that...A very big well done mate.
sorry.. that was me
looks great and those corners match the curves from the case
Man i wish i could have seen the block and the rest of the progress in madrid mate!
Amazing cuts so precise.
was i the only one that was wishing you didn't put a window in it?
This build is so simplistic and minimalist, putting a window in shows you a complex motherboard and tubing and ruins that for me. Windows to me are for people that show off their components and preach about how fast they can run crysis with their graphics cards, it just doesn't fit with your incredibly slick design.
