Acesi7, you wanted mock ups of the engraving, this will give you a rough idea:



Witchcraft I tell you!  that looks awesome!  It would probably be easiest to just make a sticker for it instead of extrude an inlay.

Installed the block again, just using the factory thermal tape:

As always very very nice work nateman. Can't wait to see what else you can tackle with your new machine.

Yeah I thought about that but a sticker just doesn't do the Block justice, I think your work demands
something a bit nicer. Also I plan on using Red Epoxy resin for the infill so it will give a beautiful
glossy finish.

I have done inlay work once before with copper, it came out quite nice:

 
A sticker would look just fine, even with an razor knife on some red sticker material.

Hi nateman_doo,
 
I am also interested in your block but I cannot send you a PM without first making 10 posts. I am new to theses forums so I guess I will look around and make 9 more posts so I can contact you about your excellent looking block

Also, I sent an email to EK asking if they were planning on making a block for the Dark. They just responded today with a clear no. I am glad users have an option to watercool the Dark! Thanks nateman_doo!

Nate, the engraving would be an awesome option, but we need more color options, how about match it to the Primochill Blue tube, or other things like that, so we can make it match up with our tubing.  Just a thought.

Not sure if Nateman is offering Engraving, I will be engraving mine and two other blocks for
a couple of Natemans other customers, I can paint fill in any colour.

You guys can have it however you would like.  There are a myriad of materials that can be used.  The copper can even be bare.

Loved your work on the 3DFX block, have looked over that work log and the Extreme11 worklog quite a few times.
 
Glad to finally be getting my very own piece of Nateman_doo hardware!
 
Any ideas when these will go into a production run? No rush, just curious.

I bought a few slabs of aluminum that I am going to use as fixture plates.  one for the SR2, one for the AS_rock Xtreme 11, and the other will be for these.  These 3 blocks I plan to make en-mass since I now have 18x18" of travel to work on.  I am going to get those plates ready and do some more machine tweaking, then I can start banging these out.

Excellent work nateman_doo, impressive stuff.
 
I would love to get my hands on one of these to complete my waterloop. Just curious if they are available for purchase right now?
 
Also, do you plan on making a block for the SB?

Re:EVGA X79 DARK WATERBLOCK 2013/09/11 03:32:14 (permalink)
Thanks!  I am up in the air about the south bridge for the board.  i have a quick outline of a block, but without any CPU waterblocks for that board laying around, I don't know what to make it compatible with.  Is there a CPU block of choice you guys plan to use?  Post a picture of it if so. (if I go through with the block, you guys are loosing that mounting hole)

CPU block I am using is a Apogee HD.  SB block isn't overly necessary, a little airflow and it cools off quick, however, if you were to make one, I would buy it instantly!
Most others I know are running that, the current Heatkiller, some use EKs (a lot complain they are ugly), and lots of XSPC Raystorm's.
 
I will see what I can do about the Apogee HD picture.

Im serious... it looks kinda like a duck, because the factory heatsink is cooling one random chip that shoots out.

Oh, on that note, I prefer plain square/rectangle type things.  I love my function and high end parts, but according to EVGATech_JaysonC I'm kinda bland. 
So please no ducks lol.

since there is more space, any shot of a shallow engraved

X79 stuff would be awesome, but I would have no problem having my personal board showing your block with you having a little logo or something on it.  Kinda a sig for your blocks, just a thought, but the X79 would be awesome, really would like that.
