    Hey if you do get it going I'd love to see the results.

    W-L reacted to AnonymousGuy in Cloudy gpu waterblock   
    And even at that you'll still need to probably do a cleanout of the loop after a while and still find build up...radiators are just nasty and should really always have a filter put on the outlet of them (and even at that you'll still get "fogging" from shit that the mesh won't catch).  I've had max-hot water from my tap circulating full blast through a radiator (my faucets are hipster-design 1/2" diameter pipe so it couples nicely) for 30 minutes and still get shit in the loop.
     
    But really it's cosmetic...the performance of the block in OP doesn't look like it's going to be significantly affected.  Right side of the fin structure looks a little grody though.

    W-L got a reaction from Bad5ector in Cloudy gpu waterblock   
    I'm guessing it's probably some flux or debris from the rads mainly that came out, it's always best to flush and rinse the rads before assembly. I usually recommend to fill them around 50% with just tap water to vigorously shake and rinse, to do that about a half dozen times before giving it a final wash with distilled water. 
     
    It's probably alright for the time being and you can let it be until the next maintenance cycle just keep and eye on temps to ensure it's not building up.

    W-L got a reaction from startrek03 in Case making modding using aluminium extrusions?   
    For aluminum extrusions they are very modular and easy to work with due to the vast number of brackets and adjustability. In terms of tools the basics would be a miter box with a metal hand saw, some files for deburring and the needed mounting hardware to attach extrusions together. If you want to get a bit more complex having a drill and tap for cutting threads in the ends or portions of the extrusions can sometimes be helpful.

    i had a monoblock that looked a bit like that sent a photo to EKWB asking if it was normal and they shipped me out a replacement very quickly.

    After a short delay in China, (probably Barrow or Blyski scanning it to make their own copy ) I received an exciting package from Malaysia.

    Pump trial fit...very snug,
     

     

     
    That should be it now- all components here, ready, present and correct.
    Now to build the thing.

    Work continues on distro plate, now including an LED channel and some changes to screw layouts, drain port and pump recess.

    so I sent my drawings to a steel company. waiting for their offer.
    I got a nice date with Solidworks Visualize today, after a little bet of tweeking the settings (and finding out my ryzen is fucking slow and SW refuses to use my Vega) I did some renders...

    Make sure that PSU is sitting flat down on the pads of the bottom of the case to ensure you don't have a bunch of potential weight just hanging from the rear bolts. If forst comes to worst you can try setting up a small block of foam under it to see if that alleviates the vibration.

    It took me a total of 3 days but some of that was waiting on amazon. It costed me about $25 but would have been less if there was a hardware store that had the screws and washers nearby. It's got some scuffs and scratches but I think I'm ready to call it done.

    so here is an update:
    all drawings (finally) done. Will go out next week to find someone ....
    bought a cheap case
    took it apart
    made rough 3D-models of the parts a want  to use and added them to my model (at least in the model everything fits fine)
    used this case as donor: https://www.notebooksbilliger.de/pc+hardware/gehaeuse+pc+hardware/inter+tech+b+30+pc+gehuse+414453
    to be honest: for the money its great. No sharp edges, its somewhat stable and has structural integrity. Definitely could be worse.

    (fun fact: it took me 12 min to take it completely apart. a decend 3mm drill does wonders for rivets)

    W-L reacted to For Science! in Is this water loop done the right way?   
    Yes, not just me, pretty much everybody in the thread.
     
    The flow rate will be lower in a parallel flow, but not low enough for there to be a meaningful difference given the high flow rate of modern pumps. The flow rate in a single parallel block will theoretically be 1/n the serial rate (where n is the number of equal components in parallel), however in serial, you pay additional price in the form of additional restriction so the overall flowrate is lower in serial. And if you are in low flow rates where this mattered, you will be paying the price that the 1st GPU would be heating up the water prior to going to the 2nd and so (in contrast to the conventional wisdom of "order not mattering") it would, and you'd rather split the flow so you don't get weird clock discrepancies due to different core temps.

    W-L got a reaction from Crossbourne in What are those and should I change the thermal paste on them?   
    Yes I would do so if they had it on there previously, little odd why they didn't use a thermal pad over those inductors but paste will also work.

    W-L got a reaction from For Science! in Clear soft tubing staying clear for 24 hours, then turns milky   
    What distilled water are you using can you post a photo? 
     
    Most tubing will go opaque after use but usually after around 6-12 months, I've used Mayhem's Ultra clear without much issue.
