nateman_dooI forgot how much I missed this....
DEJ915SR-2 and Nehalem platform is definitely better but that video was half effort at best. They used 2GB FB-DIMMS (8GB are cheap as dirt at this point) and did not even overclock the CPUs. I was excited at first since I love playing with older hardware but that video was pretty disappointing. Quick perusal of ebay you can get 4x 8GB FB-DIMMs for 30-40 dollars and that would have helped performance immensely. Nobody is going to get a system like that and use some 1 dollar memory.
nateman_dooSadly I ran out of mounting hardware. All the blocks are finished and leak tested. I ran out of the 3/48 hardware that holds the blocks to the boards. Last time I ordered it was Sept 2015. Guess it was time to order new. They will arrive tuesday. My apologies for the additional delay :( On the bright side, it allows you guys to get the 1mm thermal tape :)
nateman_dooSR2 blocks went out in the mail today. I gave them a light coat of oil on the blocks (so the screws don't rust). All you have to do is wipe the blocks down with a rag. You dont want to remove the oil from the Delrin, it will have a nice luster to it. Avoid cleaners. Just a quick rub down like you are polishing a shoe (if any of you have ever done that before)
Lord PluralAny chance there's another waterblock available? Just came across this thread looking for a block for my SR-2.
