    Now that someone not from the industry offered to do the waterblock for the MARS, you ought to contact some companies and ask them how they feel like left behind like that. Could spark interest here and there, maybe? ;)

    Well It'll be a lot of work creating the block for all 3 of us.
    So please give us some time :)
    We expect to finish it in 3-4 weeks.
    Going to start tonight with taking over 40 measurements from all parts of the card.
    So yes .. we are going to try to cool the GPU's, NF200, VRM's and memory :p
    (Guess it's hard to get something like that from Asus HQ this soon, IF they have something like that)

    Thanks imersa! I'll try to hurry :)

    Can't help it, thats me :p

    As above I guess ;)

    I would be nowhere without the modding/hardware community :clap::clap:

    I'm very exited myself too, can't wait to do the first fit! :dremel:

    Thanks a very lot m8!
    Doing it all so you guys got something to look at / read.
    Didn't have time to play a game myself the last 13 months :p

    Nah I'm not like that :p
    Since EKWB sponsored all blocks for this build and since I'm not going to use the universal gpu blocks after all ... I want to do this block with EKWB looks to honour them. :lol:

    The 'always smiling' Mr 3D (design) and Quepee from GoT (CNC milling) both really want to do this!!
    Just because it's a challenge for them too!

    Here's an update already, it's not finished yet but the basis is there :)

    I had to go to work right away
    Photos, measuring, info and more photos.
    So for who wants to know how that goes .. :)


    First a clear picture from the PCB
    (source: techpowerup.com)

    After that Daniel needed a lot of sizes.

    He could go on with the first design of the fullcover.

    I made a simple paint picture for all the sizes and heights.

    Daniel could go on with that again.

    And the first impression.
    Still looks boring but more will come :)

    Maybe till tomorrow!

    Haha. Ok, let us step back for a second. First you get a Mars II. Then you decide to custom-water cool it. And finally you put it into a relatively tiny HTCP case? OMG.

    Cool to see the Solidworks progress - I use that program too in my work.

    Keep up the good work!

    Edit: Do the sides of the block and back cover actually touch? I think it would be really awesome to fully enclose the card!

    Indeed totally new to me, but I do like it :)

    I should really try to learn to use solidworks myself too, I see those guys creating so many nice stuff!
    We are trying to hide the pcb completely, it was actually an idea from Daniel himself, he wanted to try that out for a long time :)

    For what I have in mind, and hope it'll succeed, the block is still boring ;)

    Yeah I'm really happy with Daniel and Quepee helping me out, they just seem to have fun at it too :)

    He's a real cool guy, he designs blocks in a few minutes lol, unbelievable!

    If we ever meet you can lick my block! :p

    Thanks a lot guys, and thanks even more to Daniel! :clap:

    Didn't plan to do anything today but received a package and my fingers started to tingle :)

    Still in love with the red GT fins
    Problem is I promised to watercool them. :p

    [​IMG]

    But an idea popped in.
    Hmm Corsair uses M2.5 ... Don't have them and certainly not longer ones :\

    [​IMG]


    Ok re-tap them with M3 ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    That works, now the rest.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The fins work fine, they get pretty hot when cutting them :)

    [​IMG]


    And done.

    [​IMG]


    An EK block with some rad fins I love :)
