Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/14 07:43:07 (permalink)
Here is the catch with the TRI-SLI.  So far I have been commissioned by one person to make this block.  So he has the ultimate say-so.
 
If its just 2 cards, I think I can get water over the chip.  If its 3 cards, it will most likely be an air solution for the south bridge. 
 
I have been staring at the board on and off all weekend trying to balance between price, material selection, and ease of fabrication. 
 
There is no question in my mind that I can make a waterblock for this board.  The problem I run into is the cost & selection of materials.  Copper comes in nice round numbers, like 6x6, 12x12, 4x12, stuff like that, in any thickness.  I can actually make a full complete single copper block, but it would require a large sheet of copper which would be about the size of the motherboard itself, and have lots of scrap. 
 
The other option is to make the block in smaller sections and join them via a plastic bridge, or by way of hose barbs.  That would consist of 2 small VR sections, and the NB/SB section- or 1 larger R block, and the NB/SB sections. 
 
Then that NB/SB block would come down to either a complete water (SLI) or water/air solution (TRI-SLI).

water for the VR's and the North Bridge are the easy part.  The conundrum is the south bridge.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/14 11:14:20 (permalink)
Here is a visualization:

 
The stock cards take up considerable room.  In this SLI config a 1/2" hose easily fits and will allow water to the chip. 
 
Also what we know is water cooled video cards are much thinner.  SO, If i put the barb there which will allow SLI with air/water cooled cards, it will not allow TRI-SLI air cards, but MAYBE TRI-SLI water cards. 
 
If I make the block a hybrid air/water where any generated heat from the southbridge would bleed into the water section of the north bridge, it will then be compatiable with TRI-SLI.  If you have no idea what I mean by bleeding heat, check out my Micro block. The only water portion is the North Bridge.  All the heat from the entire board travels along into the main water chamber and it draws the heat out there.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/14 15:40:53 (permalink)
I still like the idea of split blocks, and keeping the water at the NF200 and using air for the P67. This would keep material cost down as it would require smaller blocks to start with, and less scrap. And it also allows for any card config, it seems to be the smartest option so far. The block would be cheaper to make, and fit more systems meaning more people could purchase it.

but what is the cost of a block like that?

EK makes a block for gigabyte P67's, they're similar to what we're talking about here. I think the only difference is that the lower block has water covering both chips, where this one wouldn't have that.
It's priced at ~140 bucks. So I could only imagine we'd expect to see something in this area.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/14 16:52:48 (permalink)
I would like to ensure the largest possible compatibility, so im leaning towards the air option, but it still boils down to the one who has commissioned me.

I made a small parts list and I can say it wont be an EK price, but everything is handmade. I can't exactly compete with EK, im just a guy in the basement.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/14 21:40:41 (permalink)
Hey all,
 
  I have asked Nate to look at a few things in the design but I assure you he knows what he is doing and I am leaving it up to his better judgment. To me money wasn’t an object the waterblocks were. I wanted to water cool the P67 chip and the NF 200 chip along with the Mofsets but it is looking like the best way for Nate to pull this off is to water cool the Nf200 chip and the Mofset and leave the p67 alone with the stock heat sink or to use a heat pipe design to transfer the heat to the water cooled NF 200 chip which is perfectly fine with me. If you look at what he did with the P58 micro you will see what I am talking about. I have total confidence in his design, just read the form and the thanks he has gotten over the past couple of years. I just want it to look sexy!

Possible NB/SB:

 
Getting water there is easy, getting it out of there... different story.  I could extend it to go down (right as your looking at the picture) clear off the edge of the board though...  its outside the box thinking, but someone might have a small case.

extending it off the board might be an idea. keep us posted.

Most people may have room for it, but if its a small case, or your PSU might get in the way.

It's an option, you might block out a couple things this way though. Obviously the decision is up to you, and theboat. I just hope it doesn't go that way as my case wouldn't allow for that.

Hey Nate,
 
  Sent you an e-mail a few min ago. I had a Final Lab Practical today, I did well but I had to go pick up fittings and then catch a late ferry back to my side of the bay. I really like that set up. I am sure glad I sent my board to you because this is the only way you can get a good feel on how this looks. I think your first Idea is going to be the best idea.

Oh WOW, nice work!
I would be interested in one of these if it's built.
I am currently considering building a PC using a P67 FTW and going all watercooling on the CPU/Video cards. WOuld be awesome to also watercool the entrie motherboard as well.

I am very interested in one.
 
See my signature.  I'm planning an EVGA Z68 FTW.  I had to skip it for now to do the custom water cooling build (to get it out of the way), since they are NOT in stock yet!  Doh.
 
But yes, I will purchase one of these.
