What material are you planning on the final product being?  Copper, right?
 
If we time this right, i can test fit a few designs for you before I install it, as my system is running fine for a bit.

I have a board to test fit, just no way to "test"

What your looking at here (aside from a wasted piece of plastic)  is all the factory heat sink holes occupied by a 3-48 screw which will go into the water blocks.  My cheap Chinese calipers are smiling right now (as am I for getting it right the first time)

I am writing the coding as we speak (and milling a tec block too)
I really should look into the cloning machine loveha spoke of.

Egggggcellent! :D
I just purchased all the components to do my P67 FTW build, first on air. I will switch to watercooling afterwards when these blocks are ready to buy. :D Will give me a chance to really make sure everything is stable and working before I switch over.
 
I started a modrigs page for my new build "Blizzard Force"

nateman_doo,
I just had a thought, can you offset the barbs on the nf200 so they are behind the PCIe 1x slot we cannot use? It looks like you actually have room to be able to do that.
This is what I am thinking, I want to plug my X-Fi audio card into that slot. In order to do that, the barbs need to not block the PCIe 1x slot like the current heatsink does.

You can use any of the other slots for that card.

Yes, I realize that, but if I ever go tri-SLI, then I would not have a slot for my sound card.
I cannot skip, a slot and hang the 3rd video card off the end of the board either, because that blocks the USB 3.0 internal header that I am going to use.
There is also the added benefit that the PCIe 1x slot is a direct connect to the CPU vs have to go through the NF200 switches.

Just making sure you knew, quite a few people weren't aware of that.
The fittings would have to move into the red/yellow area . More likely he'd have to place both fittings into the red box somehow, as the yellow spot has caps right there. And I don't think there's enough room to just move them without extending the block up a small amount. He's also done all the coding for the block as far as I know.

You can't put a card in after you have the header hooked up? Have to be careful on how you do it. Just about everyone is able to to it with the sound header on the X58 EVGA Boards. GPU's hang right over that thing. Just have to lay the wires flat.

Cannon cocker or just lud noises in general? I'm a Mech and the impacts in the shop get loud, especially the ones we use on the larger trucks like the MRAP's and 7 TON's. We are supposed to wear ear protection, always getting told to put them on. Lately I have noticed in my hearing tests that I have lost quite a bit. Now I wear them like I should. Not deaf yet, just trying to stop it before I am.
 
As far as the Barbs go, you don't really have much of a choice in the matter looking at it. You have to block the PCI-E 1x slot.

 Jerry,
  When I first requested Nates help I wanted to try water on the P67 chip with the inlet there and the outlet on the NF 200 chip offset so it would free up the EVGA useless 1X PCIe slot but there is no way around it with that narrow space between the two chips it will be hard for Nate to offset thoses Barbs, aleast this is what I think but Nate has come up with a real cool soultion here. I am using watercooled Video cards so it frees up the black 1X PCIe slot after the 1st red PCIe slot and that is where I intend to put my Sound card. I too am like Nate I can't hear Sh*t 30 years of service does that to you but head phones work wonders. I like Nate's idea of Air cooling the P67 chip and water cooling the rest and I know it is going to look sharp and work well. Hope this helps.
Joe

Combat engineer, blowing stuff up for a while, then went signal where its constantly generators roaring. Couple that with the battery of paladins that were by my hootch in Iraq who decided to do a fire mission every 3am. Damn redlegs.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2011/08/21 17:17:35 (permalink)
All,
I understand all your points, and completely forgot about the fact that once a waterblock is on a GTX 580, you get back the slot next door. My memory is going with older age, I can still hear though. :D All those years of listening to super loud heavy metal has not killed my hearing yet!
 
Sounds good to me, I too like the hybrid air cool/water solution as I know for a fact that the P67 itself generates very little heat to begin with. Was just wondering if there was room to slide each barb over to the left, it seemed to me this morning that it would have been possible, you only need to clear the back of the board plugged in the slot, which gives you more room to work with. Honestly , I do not think the block has to be made any bigger, just sliding the barbs to the edge of the existing block design should clear the slot, especially if you use angled barb adapters to bring the fitting out at a 45 degree angle away from the board. Just saying....
 
As far as the USB 3.0 connector, the damned cables that plug into that thing are rigid and straight, you can't smash them under a video card like you can the USB 2.0 connectors.

+1 about the 3.0 cable, no way to use that and occupy that space with the provided 3.0 hub.
As far as I can tell (From pictures of block/board) If you didn't extend the block at all you'd end up with a very thin wall, and limited space for some sort of seal on the block. Which was my main point of extending it, ensuring you have enough room for barb and seal. Add in the fact that there's caps near the yellow box I marked out, even with a 45, or even 90 degree fitting you'd be very tight on the card, and have a small space to work with for your seal. It would be nice to regain that x1 slot, but at the same time you're not losing anything as it's blocked by the original heatsink anyways. Plus it's not just "moving barbs" you'd also have to redo the interior of the block at that point.

you have nooooooo idea how long it took me to code the O-ring for that.  HOURS.  all the little vertices, tangent lines etc.. had to match up perfectly.

All the exterior geometry has been coded.  All thats left is interior geometry, and the O-ring channels.
