many moons ago I made an all copper water block for my 8800 ultra, this was when the ultra was old and could be picked up for 70 or so not 500+ new.

it failed fantastically. i was only 16 or so.

but now I've come back to making a water block and I think I've done excellent!
9284
9286
9287

just needs to be tested now!

the patter was made using a .2mm 45 engraving bit.


and John, how did your water block come out?

Hi nice water block,
i am total new to CNC i am looking to do somthing similar i.e. make custom water block and such.
Could you point a complete newbie in the right direction?
Did you make your own machine and where does one start?

looks like a cool water block excellent job.

look forward to your reply
thanks

Nice work JCB and like MOCNC something I have in mind to do on my machine, although I'm going to potentially have a go on an Asus 780Ti (gulp)......

Hi there washout good luck with that 780Ti please let us know how you get on ..... did you build you own machine? I am starting out so any advise would be much appreciated.

Thank

Hi MOCNC

You can find Washout's build log here. Made a nice job of it and it works well from the videos posted:

Other DIY CNC build logs are here:

Any of the above will fly through aluminium to make PC cooling blocks etc. without problems. Find something close to your liking and ask away . . .
