Maze 3 warning

Im not sure how accurate this info is but i thought id post it up.

http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthrea...threadid=10268

Apparantly the lucite top on the maze 3 can warp causing it to leak. Dangerden are selling a replacement copper top to solve the problem.

Personally id buy myself a OCPC neptune over a maze 3 (they use more expensive perspex)

http://www.overclockedpc.co.uk/

One very interesting point in that bit tech thread was using a plastic top with water channels and barbs built into it as a cheaper and more efficent way of making a waterblock. I think thats a very good idea with allot of potential

Would you recommend a MAZE3 with a copper top if you were getting one? Would it improve cooling, too?

Quote from that thread.

Ive seen several reports about the maze 3 leaking, i dont think its a widespread problem but its something to be wary of.

A copper top probably wouldnt give any better tamperatures (being quite some distance from the core) It certainly wont look as pretty.

Its a shame you cant get the OCPC blocks in the US, they are very good.

Thats not a great pic, look at the OCPC site for more info.

For some off reason i cant get the [IMG] tag to work, hopefully super will fix it

Email Den or Jesfm at OCPC, or post on www.coolhardware.co.uk, im sure they will be able to arrange something.

If not email me.

Is the Gemini Spiral better then the MAZE3? If I'm OC'ing (And I am!) could the Lucite warp on the MAZE3? How much heat would that take? The Spiral has a Lexan top... How much heat would it take?

I'm still trying to find 3/8" to 1/2" fittings for my Swiftech but thanks for the heads up.

Is that your's, Spyder?

And about pumps, a store in Portland is selling 80GPH for $19.99, so if you want one, tell me. I don't know if you really need more GPH then that...

the gemini blocks are gonna cool better than the maze, and the working temp of lucite/acrylic and lexan/perspex is not that far apart, I cant imagine a waterblock getting even close to that temp, especially on the back side!!! (well if its got water in it anyway)

Yeah, it sounded a little far-fetched being even thin lexan can with stand small caliber rounds for 50 feet easily...

I expect its a pressure issue, not a temperature one.

So wouldn't that be too much pressure on the mechanism that attaches the lexan to the block, not the type of lexan/copper/etc?

I think Random is talking about water pressure, not mounting screw pressure. A non-vented closed loop system can easily exceed 10PSI once the water warms up . . .

Oh, right

I was saying that if there is too much pressure on the *glass* then wouldn't the problem be the type of mounts for the glass to the block, and not the type of glass?

lexan, perspex or whatever is a hell of a lot more likely to bend than to stretch the bolts holding it down.

I'm using a DD Maze3 with the clear top, and so far, so good. My cpu temps do not get over 40 (when I didn't have an air conditioner for the room), and now they stay in the mid 30's C.

I'll definately be keeping an eye out for leaks now, though. It's been in and running for at least a month now, no problems.
