Nice work lets see how a C2D does on the hot plate next time around Bro ... with a copper base
Since you can't make the aluminium walls any thinner, how about making them rougher? That should increase the surface area and turbulence for better thermal transfer...
i know bro but there is some problems i have broken a drill that can make them rougher LOL i know
it hapend when i started to enter material i dident know that this one cant take higher speeds
it was made for higher speeds but i dont know what happen maybe a drill was damaged anyway i did not look
on regular water block (made by aluminum) walls are same and its depth is 10mm but my is 20mm it is larger and flow and thermal transfer should be ok i think
bro i have copper but i dont have a C2D
How do you seal the waterblock?
with thermal resistant silicon LOL
it need atleast 12hours to seal it (well to dry it )
Make sure you leak test first...
i know that is why i hate plastics
well i have made one before and no leaking from it
i hope this one will work without any problems
Why didn't you seal it with aluminium plate?
because of testing and so i can see is there a air iside it
if i get any air iside it will cause lower heat transfere
Wow.. With a transparent plastic top?
was playing with it
that plastic top is a mistake i hate it (have droped on a floor and it have broke uhhhhhhhhhhh )
now i need to make new top , will use aluminum or plastic 5mm
You will make it better anyway bro
Highly recommended that you use aluminium plate.
Yeah, plastic looks nice but I think aluminium is not only sturdier but it will also help dissipate the heat.
Wow, that's pretty cool self-made watercooling!
I wish I had that big machine that can carve or cut that metal block into something else. My college has one of these too.
I second that although the transparency is cool
Nope it doesn't.
Hmm.. Why not? It may not be much, but it sure is better than plastic.
