New waterblock

This block is a Atlantis from (********.Com)
I bought it to replace my Maze-2 as I can use a TEC with this block (planning a 220watt system in the next week or two)

But for now im just running it without the coldplate straight watercooled.

Temperatures so far are significantly lower than my maze-2, im not sure how accurate my measurements are so far, but I can now post at 2gig (couldt before) and I can run 1950mhz stable so far (only 1900 before)

Plus it looks great even if the surface finish isnt all that shiny (surfaces are however VERY flat, just not polished)

View of internal channel design.

Flowrate is very high on this block (no numbers yet but higher than the maze-2

Nice looking design for basic watercooling, but I think you will be disappointed for TEC cooling. A 220W Qmax TEC will put at 600W load on the waterblock, that block like every other block currently manufactured is not engineered with such loads in mind. You want a parrallel micro-channel(0.060" channels, 0.120" walls) block machined from 1 inch thick copper bar stock for such cooling endeavors.

Other than lending me the block to include with the others not really! and to be honest there wont be much of a need.

Is that Maze2 a 1/2" one? I have spodes 3/8 here, but it cripples flow, and wont really be a good comparison to the rest of the blocks (mostly 1/2")

*EDIT*
In the normal course of things Holst's posting of a link to the source of his water block would have been just fine. However given the extencive lee-way AOA has granted, (due in large part to our readers interest level and the LACK of any attempt to link to a point of sale).

I'll have to prohibit any links that by their presents would turn this into a sales promotional.

*END OF EDIT*

I had to sell the maze 2 to help finance the TEC upgrade.

If you did want to send me another socket A block that i can use for a week we can swap blocks so you can test the atlantis, although if you contacs jess at (***********) he might send you a review block anyway.

I know a friend of his, i'll ask them.

Ill probably be able to swap blocks with you no problem once a couple more arrive!

I guess I will have to correct you.

I designed the block - it is a high flow , high surface block that can easy handle output of a 220W and a 120W CPU. It was designed for High loads in mind, and also maximum surface area without restriction.
And the comment regarding basic waterblock I take as an insult , it far from basic, allot of R&D did go into our design to get to this stage, we did not just draw it on a bit of paper adn think "yeah that will be good enough". We are engineers, who design units for specific goals.
The only other manufacturer that possibly do as much delevopment is Silverprop, I don't have much regard for many other designs currently on the market.
. Random, if you mail me I will sort out a loan block for you to do your review with.

Im going to try and sort out the TEC by next weekend so we shall see if the block is upto it or not.......

From my current results im pretty confident.

I decided to buy a Abyss rad from OCPC too, with 4 120mm fans and a shroud water temps is 2*c above ambient (my innacurate temperarure guage though).
The shroud is a bit ugly but its working well. I didnt get very good airflow untill I made the shroud as the rad is quite restrictive and needs pressure to get the air flowing (hence 4 fans two sucking two blowing)
At 7v these maplins fans are quiet enough and they only cost me £6 each.

Thats a new res too, smaller with the pump still hung from mylon to prevent vibration.

On the top is clingfilm and some condensation so it looks a bit messy in the photo.

I dont think Jeff meant that as an Insult, just his opinion, he messes around making his own blocks, and from what ive heard blow a lot of comercial blocks out of the water! I've heard good things about the OCPC blocks, and I'll just email you about the review.

I Have to agree with R.N I believe that "Basic" referred to a water block used in the more conventional manner, rather than one used to cool a tech.

I'll have to prohibit any links that by their presents would turn this into a sales promotional.(Which of course it has already become.) This of course includes links on this product by our membership. I see nor place any fault here, with our readership. I'm am posting this to prevent this from drifting any closer into a violation of our forum rules. Which it would seem this approach by the manufacturer was well planed to circumvent.

Sorry dan, this wasnt meant to sound like a sales promotion, although I am very impressed with the product.

I should have linked to the manufacturers site not the point of sale.

This is www.ocpc.co.uk.

Can you please delete those maze-2 pics, i only posted them as I dont have a email pic host. (this must be against the rules but i cant delete them as you changed the editing rules)

Nice setup Holst. Having the reservoir and radiator externally helps in controlling overall temps.I guess you use additives in the water eg -bleach or a corrosion inhibitor to control bacteria and the like.

That hosing is what 16mm.....?

It would be intesting to compare the Silverprop C5 and Atlantis on the same setup. Just to see the results.

Good luck with it.

If somebody wants to send me a silverprop for a few days id be happy to test.

Rad with shrouds is doing very well now water is staying 2-3*c above ambient with a approximate 140watt load (assuming pump is 20wats which seems reasonable)

Tubinf is 1/2" thick walled silicone, id never use anything other than silicone.
The barbs on the rad are 14mm to reduce restriction, this works pretty well, flowrarte seems pretty good (not done any real measurments)
