    Nice. However, the Aqua-Computer ones do look far better IMHO.

    I agree with you 100%.. But, I think the Innovatek version may do a better job of cooling. I have a AC ramplex, lets take a look-see:
    [​IMG]
    The h20-blocks:
    [​IMG]
    the AquaComputer is equal in length to three of the Innovatek blocks (which is the max-# you can bolt on the cooling plates). The water channel of the Innovatek is twice as deep as that of the AC.
    The cooling-plates:
    [​IMG]
    both Alu, but the Innovatek's plates are three-times as thick as the AC.
    [​IMG]
    There is little doubt the AquaComputer unit looks better. That is the reason for the mod I am doing on the Innovatek. Started working on it today, and should finish tomorrow. Update to follow.
    My "two cents" on water-cooling ram. Not necessary, but looks slick..

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with the RAM blocks. It better be sweet!! Wait... I can't say that since I know it will be as long you are working on it, so I just want to know what it is!!

    I think I know exactly what you're going to do.

    Then again, I'd probubly be wrong since I'm always wrong when predicting. :\

    RAM kUhler: (2)


    First off lets look at the Innovatek ram cooler with it's optional (two) extra blocks:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    not the most attractive setup..It needs a cover to hide those compression fittings, and I have an idea..
    We will use two H20 blocks and mod the third:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    drill and countersink larger (M4) holes for a cover support:
    [​IMG]
    the support, ACryan MeshX:
    [​IMG]
    the cover:
    [​IMG]
    a chrome plated billet-Alu Harley trans inspection cover. The perfect size..
    Then back to the mesh:
    [​IMG]
    with the mesh-strip bolted to the ram cooler, it's a matter of more cutting/bending/drilling:
    [​IMG]
    added some c-strip and finished off with black-oxide button head bolts. Two for real and two for show. :hehe:
    [​IMG]
    IMHO, looks pretty sexy..and adds very-little weight. Should not be a problem.
    [​IMG]

    almost looks like a motorcycle part.. :thumb: may come-back and polish those outside Alu cooling plates..another day..
    Did you guess correctly BoD?
    Until next time.

    I was completely wrong. I thought you would use the Innovatek plates with the AC blocks.

    I can't quite figure out how it actually gets attached to the RAM, but who cares, that looks absolutely stunning! Spectacular innovative work, as usual :)
