    It is a "real stinger" a chip-stinger..
    It's no-longer a prototype..Order yours today.. In universal or board-specific mount..

    GET STUNG..

    I have been "pushing" FRED to start doing videocard Stinger's .. I have "high-hopes" that he will do another prototype for me when that time comes (months away for this project).. POST UP FRED...

    Thanks for the "heads up" on the HARDWARELABS gear. It's an expensive 120mm radiator, but it seems to be the best money can buy..

    I will have to get-me-one.. Can you hear me Performance-PCs..... :D

    I know it's a real Stinger. I meant "real Stinger" as is CPU stinger the big one lol.

    The BlackIce radiators are very good but not the best. If you want the best get a Thermochill or a Feser rad:
    Thermochill PA120.1:

    Feser TFC Xchanger 120mm:
    http://www.gammods.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_2&products_id=577

    Both are expensive but they work really well with low powered fans meaning you get a more silent computing experience with very good temps.

    Love the mod MS, looking very nice. I am a little concerned/curious as to your ability to get away with a single 120mm rad, though. I have CPU/NB/SB/MOSFET in one loop with a single 120 and a dual 80 with no temperature issues (Q6600 not OC'd stays around 26C idle) but I didn't feel bold enough to attempt it with a single rad.

    I will have to keep my eyes on this, I look forward to seeing how this works out for you.

    P.S. I grew up in Rockford, about an hour northwest of Chicago. Living in Madison now. My what a small world this is.

    backing-plates 1

    first real work I have managed in over a month..
    Backing plates.. After seeing DangerDen's
    I looked and said " hell, I can do that..:dremel:
    And so I did..
    The StingerBlocks are massive (heavy) both the V6i CPU and chip-stinger need (IMHO) backing plates..
    chipset

    then

    Sorry: I have "lots more pictures to show" BUT, I am drunk..Just can't type anymore..
    I should get a package from McMaster-Carr later today containing thumb-nuts and Silicone Rubber Film..
    I promise more to-follow..

    backing plates II

    The backing plates are made from 3mm Lexan
    the mounting hardware
    [​IMG]
    from EkWaterBlocks
    the CPU plate is EZ
    [​IMG]
    the only problem is height..
    the answer is to counter sink the bolt holes
    [​IMG]
    like so
    [​IMG]
    bolted in

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Lets test fit the StinGer
    ran into a problem right-off
    [​IMG]
    the EK springs are too long..
    [​IMG]
    the answer, cut them in half with the :dremel:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    the northbridge plate is next..
    the area around the NB
    [​IMG]
    the plate needs a center hole
    [​IMG]
    and more counter-sinking for clearance.

    Just as Dracula needs blood, I need alcohol.. With out it I would turn to dust..
    Thanks one and all.. The MB needs those backing plates. The Stinger-blocks are massive hunks of copper. The MB is getting very-heavy.. With it's 40+ Enzotech heatsinks, the pair of Stinger's and a copper videocard waterblock (most likely EK), it's total-mass could be about 5lbs..
    And don't forget the enzo-ram-sinks:

    the box is just sitting and waiting for me to purchase memory (DDR3-1800)

    thanks for the gear EnzoTech
    final MB weight (my guess) could be 6lbs.. :worried:

    Thanks head.. That's what I do (and have been going for years on bit-tech). Simplify the simple ("Go tell the Spartans").. Make plan the obvious. As my last post shows "anyone" can make backing-plates.. It's not-hard..
    All that's needed : "simple hand-tools" and a bit of imagination... Why send money to DangerDen or EK WaterBlocks for something anyone can do (make) themselves..
    I would guess FRED STINGER will finish and ship my prototype " X58 chipstinger" and hose-claps before the week ends.. Pictures are sure to follow..
    I am truly envious of his talent.. If only " I could do that"...:wallbash:

    @ boy4oz.. I am all but sure I will win the MB weight contest when all is "said and done".. (5lbs and counting)...
    MS

    Very nice work as usual and I always like the attention to detail as well as the hand work. :clap:

    BTW, I have been considering ditching the pair of FMJ's I have in FF. I seem to have lost an Aquastream somewhere and if I can't find it I will probably get a pair of DDC's. So PM me if you want them.
