Finaly pics. of my entries for UWB

Hi I just register to this forum yesteday because, and I would like to show you what I've been working on lately.
I preparing my new blocks, for testing, which I was gonna star yesterday, I set everything up, good enviroment for steady temps, water sensor, I measured the flow rate through all blocks, so I was ready to start testing. The board of choice was new Epox 8k5a for which I was sure that reads internal diode from Axp, but then it turns out that it only read it for thermal protection, and in mbm it only show temp. from socket thermistor, I just can't believe that. So now I have to wait to get 8k3a mobo. for test.
Ok, back to water blocks. and pics.

http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/Star%20.../Star%2001.jpg
First take 16 2*4.5mm chanells, flat center 6mm base
Also see my mounting hardware, I made this brass bolts that lead the spring, and I screw those nuts just so that it doesn't touch the block top, this way I'll have constant mounting preasure on all tested blocks, preasure is great and the block doesn't move a bit, I also don't use shim anymore because of even mounting force.
Then I started making central cone block with 8 4*6mm chanells 4 & 6 mm base, this one has two layer top, because I wanted to design block with only one outlet, but it's basicaly one inlet four outlet, water flow on this block is just incredible best of all my current designs.

http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/Star%20...StarEvoMk2.jpg
60° central cone with 10 mm base diameter
http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/Star%20...20Mk2%2004.jpg
http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/Star%20...vomk2%2003.jpg
Based lapped with 1000 grit paper

http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/Star%20Blocks/Entries.jpg
And this are all the block I'm about to test next week, middle block upper row is comercial Magnum spiral block, then I have my two fin copper and Al spiral with 6mm base exactly the same design, middle block bottom row is the block I use until recently slightly modified top to have better flow, plus the block on first pic. which is already installed on my cpu. So lots of work for me in the following days.

Nice looking block, I made a similar one with a rotory table in a horizontal mill out of aluminum a long time ago, but the the aluminum wasn't up to the tast. You will see lower temps if you sand-blast the inner area of the block.

Hmm sorry, but I realy don't remember when we excanged email, could you remind me a little

So Spode is doing a roundup, yeah no problem for test sample, but for now it takes me some time to make one of those block, because I'm still making them on classic mill with hand wheels, I am working on cnc conversion though, then I can also crank up production.

I checked my email and I haven't found any from you, and I was also serving army until May... But I think I know who you emailed, was it Jurij Strasek, he's my friend that cnc machined two fin spiral blocks, I designed. Other than him, I don't have any idea, what was his(my??) email.

gone_fishin: no, I haven't. I hope I can find time next week, been so busy lately...

AAAH! that all makes sense now! sorry for the confusion!

/me slaps himself for being a little bit dim.

Hey, an idea to cut down on costs. If you can talk to Jurij, you could pack your samples all into one box if you guys still want to send samples! Im a little worried that I havent heard from him but oh well, im sure he will get back to me!

His father owns a company that machine some other stuff, so he made me those blocks in spare time (free machines). But I realized after waiting (still am) long, long time for him to make me some new design, that I'll have to find some other way, that's why I bought desktop mill, and I'm in the process of making cnc conversion, and then I'll start making blocks myself.
So when I'll have everything set up I'll let you know

He was refering to this block: http://www2.arnes.si/~mlivak/new/wb_mark4.jpg
My custom made prototype which took quite some time to be milled classicaly with hand wheels. This is the block in middle of bottom row in that pic. with six blocks. But this isn't my latest block this is just a block I was waiting for him to machine, and now stop waiting and rather made some new designs.
And good news I finaly got 8k3a mobo so I can start testing all those blocks to see which one of them is the best.
