Hey Gizmo

First off I must apologize if this is in the wrong forum, if so then mods please move it.
Now what I was going to be saying..
Have you got any pics of your direct die cooling, how do you seal (neoprene??) Do you have a certain flow onto the core and off or is it just a sort of tank over the core?
Have made a few blocks my self but none for CPU's yet, might be an good project for me to try soon.
Heres some pics of the blocks I have made so far....
Copper N/Bridge , MOSFET for myself , S/Br and MOSFET for mates mobo and finally combined S/Bridge and SATA.
Direct die CPU sounds like a nice next project.
Gizmo's reply:
Ah, I was going to ask you if the link didn't give you the info you were looking for. I actually need to update that thread a little. I've changed my sealing system. I used to use a closed cell neoprene foam gasket. That worked ok, but it would tend to compress over time, plus water would leak out and corrode the capacitors and stuff on the top of my CPU (although it never managed to leak out onto the mobo while it was properly mounted).

So now I'm using a soft rubber gasket from, with cutouts for the surface mounts on top of the CPU. I then fill the cutouts with blutak (that blue colored putty stuff for sticking pictures and posters on the wall) to get a good watertight seal around the surface mounts. I've been using that arrangement for about two weeks now, and it seems to work real well. I'll try to get some pics and update that thread soon....
The developing project unfolds here:
