PostSubject: Waterblock Question   Fri May 22, 2009 12:55 pm

I have just got rrod for the second time so I decided to finally go ahead and liquid cool my 360 and here is my waterblock design. I will mill it out of some aluminum stock and will probably gasket it and then use aluminum plate for the top of it. I would appreciate any advice on this as this is the first time I have ever liquid cooled anything. This isn't a finished design either, I will repeat the fin pattern on the opposite side as well.

Top View


Front iso


Back iso


Both the inlet and outlet would be on the pcu so it's out of the way from the dvd drive. Each of the fins are 1mm thich with 2mm space in between. the outer edge on this part is 3mm i think, but for the final it will have to be about 5mm. And i put the seperator in so the coolant would circulate more. (I thought that if both inlet and outlet were so close there would be alot of stagnant water on the far side that wouldn't dissapate the heat very well)

Again, all advice is appreciated.

Holy shnikeys affraid , how old are you again? and you bust stuff like that out on Autocad? (i'm assuming of coarse that you are using that instead of other various programs) I just got Autocad from my uncle and its been about 5 years since i've used it, don't remember a thing even tho i was top in my class. ANYWAYS lol sorry, yea from what I've been looking at, it looks like a solid design as far as flowing and cooling, but as far as that, I'm not sure what to do for improvement, which i'm sure there is some seeing as its the early stages of design.

Hmmm, only problem I see (referring to the first picture) is the upper left sides of it. I'm assuming they are for the HANA chip and that other chip. The problem I see is that the water will get pushed in that direction but it has no way to return to the output. What I would do is cut flow to those parts completely. Just have them as solid pieces, that should be more then enough to cool those chips.

I can edit your picture in paint if you need me to demonstrate what I mean.

This is the water block I threw together using some Danger Den chipset blocks using the stock X-Clamps....






I prefer SketchUp. Smile

Yeah I could leave them solid. I could even do a heatsink design to those. solid with the fins on top.

Now theres a good idea. Any reason you went with aluminum as opposed to copper?

I can get aluminum stock for free. copper I would have to hunt down a place that sells it and then buy a 10ft stick cuz they won't sell it smaller. And if I screw up on this one, I can just make another for free. Other than that, no real reason. The only a question for you guys would be what should I use for the top. As I said before I can get the aluminum for free, otherwise I could do acrylic Like collins' for (maybe) do copper. I just would be worried that copper would be weak and might strip out easily.

For the top I would go with acrylic, it's far easier to work with then metals. Plus you can see through it or use colored plexi. Just make sure you put a gasket of some sort between them or your gonna have a nasty mess.

Wish I had access to alum like you! I'd love to make waterblocks of my own.

Do you have access to CNC or are you doing it by hand?

I can do it either way. But I have not yet used the Cnc router. So it ms be easier for me to just use a mill.

I wanted a summer project, and liquid cooling is it. Is there any way you could make me a duplicate of your waterblock? If so, how much would it cost? If you wanted it to be your own and unique, which I completely understand, would you know where I could find another one?

I don't even know if mine will get done. I just graduated (today) and as of right now my summer is looking pretty busy. I was hoping to get this done in school and that obviously is not really an option so I may still be able to do it during an open shop day during the summer. if I get mine done and it turns out well I may make a couple duplicates.

Congrats on Graduating!!!

Do you have acess to the laser on open shop days too? I might be wanting another engraving done.
