thanks for the compliment. I know nate will be doing his own code before you know it. look at how far he has progressed in the last year:) the man is on a mission! top quality.

I think the cam stuff is harder then the building of the machine.

Im going to try and get some nice pics this batch. I have copper, acetal & delrin tops.

Me neither! However I wonder what's the difference between the acetal and delrin tops o_O!
 
Hmmm:
 
"Acetal is the generic, and not all Acetal is Delrin. Several manufacturers produce Acetal resin, including: Celanese, BASF, Ticona, SABIC and many more."
"Delrin is a homo-polymer Acetal produced by Dupont. The generic Acetal covers both the homo-polymer Delrin and the co-polymer grades of resin"

Delrin, is more plain black. Check out the P67 thread. Thats delrin. Acetal copolymer looks like fine italian marble when its polished. If you look at the first post in this thread, there is a link to my original (pre-cnc) block. Somewhere there is a shot of the acetal copolymer. The ACP stands up a hair better to freezing temps if i recall, but ive never had a problem with either with my chiller.

got a re-design for the cpu tops comming that will include a bridge to parallelize the chip blocks. pm tonight or tomorrow nate. I think it will be uber sweet. 4 fittings instead of 8 ftw!

Good timing, i have some to cut, so if there is a new design id love to try it out first.

Thanks for the clarification :), however the link:
 
"This project started off with the most humble of origins (http://forums.evga.com/tm.aspx?m=407222),"
 
Doesn't work anymore :(
 
Another thing, the included heatsink on the SR2 has metal above some Vregs that are above PCIe slots and above CPU0... they aren't covered by your block :/, they are covered by the EK and Koolance blocks... mmmm ...

those are not v-regs and it doesnt matter, with my rig going 100% load those chips are barely warm when I put my finger on them. they dont need to be cooled. the only reason that the other guys cover them is to add support to keep the block from rocking on its 2 screw mounts. at least that is what i assume their reason is.

Thanks :)! I just needed to be sure I didn't need to buy some small heatsinks to protect them. BTW do you overclock?

All this talk about watercooling SR-2's. Well I just ordered the mobo tray and back plate to mod my case. Can't wait for tax return money to order a CPU and the Board and blocks . I'm counting down the days till I get to send that magical PM to nateman_doo.

Those blocks are inductors that are good to 155C. Thy are not neccessary to cool as Grat has mentioned.

As for the link not working, thats the old forums & i guess EVGA turned them off. Either way ill try to take some nice pics of the differences in both materials, ACP & Delrin.

work in progress, this is not final shape, and still needs testing. but here is the teaser pic with integrated vreg parallel bridge.

never heard of it.  Will it export/import *.prt files?  thats what mine uses, but I think I can get an iges file to work, but I still have to program the tool paths on paper.

Re:100% Copper SR2 full coverage waterblock! 2012/01/23 22:37:17 (permalink) ☄ Helpful
Wow.  I've been deep in research the last few weeks speccing out a workstation build based on the SR-2 and dual x5690s.
 
I've been reading tons of reviews and forums on waterblocks and had basically decided on EK supreme HF copper along with their mobo block.
 
But I just stumbled across this thread, and now I don't even know what to think anymore.  Holy moly those blocks look amazing!
 
Is your current build still open?
 
Also, this is the first watercooled rig I'll be building, so is this going to be more advanced or error prone for me being a water newbie?

Send nate a PM if you want to order as for ease its about the same in some ways easier to use nate's because, there are so many people on the forums here whom can help you with advice to avoid common pit falls.

Also, this is the first watercooled rig I'll be building, so is this going to be more advanced or error prone for me being a water newbie?

the setup on either ek system or nates is basically the same, watercooling an sr-2 as your first watercooling rig is basically like learning to drive for the first time in a ferarri. fun as heck, but dangerous if you scratch it. a little bit of common sense and general mechanical inclination are necessary. Just read up on how to plan your loops, pumps, fittings, and above all leak test completely before you power anything. a little distilled water on the board won't hurt anything if you allow the proper amount of time before you apply ANY power. (I have soaked boards before, and allowed 36hours or so to dry with a fan on it and good as new.just got to make sure all water out from under the blocks and tight spaces) this board doesnt like its blocks tightened down too tight either, so looser is better. that is the same with the ek or nates blocks. you can always make a loose block tighter, but if its too tight then sometimes it can be a non recoverable problem. this is also an issue that the new design of the cpu blocks will eliminate as a potential problem.
 
i think nate is in the middle of his run, if you want to wait a few weeks extra for us to build and test my new cpu tops with the bridge, you will be able to get away with 4 less fittings for a much cleaner less cluttered tubing run. nothing like the joy of custom:)
 
btw. I am running a 40% overclock 24/7 folding 100% with these blocks and I don't go over 60 degrees on any of my 16 cores ever. to be perfectly honest, the ek cpu blocks may give you 2 or 3 degrees at the most better temps, but heck man, nothing wrong with 4.4ghz 100% load at 60 degrees in my mind! socket temps is only 45 and cores 50-55 average full load. idle is about 24 degrees across the cores. this is at about 75 degrees ferinheight ambient. in the summer when ambient in my office is 85 f the cores will run about 66 or so full load. still perfect as far as I am concerned.

ok guys, for those of you concerned that nates cpu block won't perform as well as the top block from ek, I have decided to base the redesign around the new dd m6 base and mid plate. our top will just replace the top shown here and will include the bridge to chipset to reduce fitting requirements and ease v-reg block installation. performance will be the same as tested by martin here.
 
http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/01/21/i7-2600k-danger-den-m6-cpu-block-preview/
 
our mounting system will still be the same as my original design for a clean m3 hex countersunk instead of those big ugly knobs!
 
I am going to try to provide interchangeability between sr-2 and sr-x so that upgrading wont require a cpu block change!! hard to know exactly untill sr-x comes out though. worst case we could provide an upgrade service to slightly mod the block to fit sr-x

awsome...well that gives us time to perfect the new cpu blocks!!
 
btw right now folding 100% my cores are all under 53 and thats at the 4.4 on my 5672's. i can get 4.9 out of this setup but dont feel comfortable with the volts required to 24/7 it.
