Yeah, the logos are nice. I like the bottom thicker one as it looks awesome with the swirl marks.

the bottom one was with a flat bottom end mill.  It makes the logo more of an extrusion, rather then the top which is more of an etch because it uses a ball endmill.

Thanks!  I just drilled, and tapped my tool plate to get ready to cut some more SR2 blocks.  Anyone else want to get in on this batch??

Hey Nate or anybody for that matter would graphite make a good waterblock? never mind I found my answer LOL.

Hey Nate or anybody for that matter would graphite make a good waterblock? never mind I found my answer LOL.

if you are talking about for the base that actually transfers the heat then the answer is no. graphite has an average thermal conductivity of
an average k =127.7 W/mK
http://www.jyi.org/articleimages/3560/Noranzyk_DOE_2009.pdf
 

where copper is about k =400 W/mK

higher is better
http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/thermal-conductivity-d_429.html

if you are talking about for a top, then yes it would work great but is a lot harder to machine and generally needs a tool speed of 10,000-30,000 rpm using a diamond bit or minimum solid carbide bit. it is very abrasive being a non metalic mineral. it could be moulded to shape but would be very expensive compared to milling copper tops wich are more expensive than delrin or acrylic.

a milled carbon fiber or graphite top would look cool, but pom and delrin looks like graphite so I don't think it is worth the money to have it done. if you want a carbon fiber look, you could always cover the top of the block with that carbon film. I have seen that done on various components and if done right looks cool. I have never seen anyone do it on a block top though. might be nice!

Firstly  nateman_do your work is amazing!! I maybe be in contact with you soon.
 
I apologies if I have missed it but how do your blocks (both cpu  and mobo) compare the likes of the larger brands say EK or Alphacool

How about telling me what you would like it to look like, then we can pick out a material that will work.  There is a myriad of materials you can choose from if you at least know the color, or texture your looking for.

Thanks!! Which CPU are you referring to?  the Danger Den tops I make are just tops for the DD blocks, so they perform probably a bit better then the acrylic top that they normally come with.  The SR2 block you can have this block  customized with any top you like provided it can be machined with carbide tooling *cough* graphite?? *cough*
 
 
I hope to hear back from you both soon, as I will be starting a batch either today, or tomorrow.

Hmm interesting I had not come across the Danger Den CPU block before. 
 
How does your mobo block compare to the likes of the EK ek-fb (standard) nickel plated blocks. 
 
Guessing you are in the states to potential shipment over to GB could be rather costly I would expect. Need to concentrate on replacing my failed CPU first..

Yup, in the states.  I will ship anywhere and if you want I can get a shipping estimate and discuss any other particulars with you if you want to send me a PM.

Something about the sheen of fresh cut copper....
 
Here is the last bottom piece of this batch

 
First top half of the batch.

Really wish I was a professional photographer just so you guys could see the beautiful gleam of copper under the 200W's of halogen flood lights.

I'm so pumped I am all in for this masterpiece of work. This will be my first water cooling build so I hope it all goes well. I'll probably be asking a lot of questions (in a separate thread of course) about how to set up and what parts to get. I've done a lot of research but I'm sure I'll still have the one of questions here and there.
 
It looks like you do a great job and I can't wait for the final product. I run around with a bunch of computer builder guys here where a live and if they have a need for anything you make I will send them your way.

nate is a great guy and will make you happy. there are a few tricks to set up this system. I will be happy to walk you through any questions about actually installing and running the system. if you require further instruction just pm me, or I am sure nate will walk you through everything as well. the small chipset block has a mounting quirk as in use new thermal pads and it needs to be loosely mounted for best results(this is important because of the added weight of the copper can dammage the vrg if it is tightened too much), and the cpu blocks need to be mounted the way I told you wile running under full load to get them adjusted right. (there is no stop. which is good because you can really fine tune your mounting pressure.)

Gratuitous, I can probably machine some stops (buy them and machine to the exact size within 0.0005) if you give me a number. 
 
This is the neatest thing ever.  The height dial gauge.


Drop a bit down till the indicator reads 0, and your 2" above your work surface within 0.0005".
 
Here I am clamping it to the tool plate, with a 1x2x3 block, then clamping another 1x2x3 block on top so I can set the dial to 0 and be as accurate as the 1x2x3 block.

Thanks for the kind words Nate.
 
Yeah I'll need to re-read the mounting pressure post you put in my thread. I read this entire thread and had looked over a post about how a guy cracked one of the vrg or something like that on this board. I'm sure before I mount it I'll want to chat with someone. I would probably err on the side of caution and probably have it too loose lol :-) So at that point I'll probably need some guidance on what temps to look at to make sure the chipset is doing well (like pwm or other temps), and where they should be on stock clocks (roughly).

I'm off to work but thats a decent idea nate, I will measure out the distance for you tonight. clayton: we are happy to help especially on a first setup. want you to do it right the first time:)

It's gotta be pretty spot on.  Not sure how you would measure that kind of distance.  Feeler gauges perhaps?

Hows that height measurment going?

All of the parts to the main blocks of this batch are done.
VR's need cutting & then the finishing process.

to be honest nate, I actually think its better without stops. I imagine each cpu may be just a hair diferant, and I like being able to fine tune the seat wile running to find the sweet spot. if you watch the core temps under full load, it is amazing what just a quarter thread turn on one screw will do sometimes. 2-3 degrees.

I wouldn't sell yourself short though yes gratuitous did my blocks engraving i find it hard to believe the work you do carving these blocks could be described as really anything less then amazing them self :)
