    Prototype Project 404 - Sub 10 liter Vertical Tower

    There were fitment issues on the first design. Did a near complete redesign that is being made right now. Lehman

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    I tried a simple test with the first prototype. Stock pump top vs the pump block reverse flow through an ek supremacy coldplate. Both attached to a 15ft length of tubing. The stock pump top pushed water to just over 9.5 feet. The reverse flow through the coldplate just barely got 9 ft of...

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    Something to look at is the apogee drive ii. It is a reverse flow pump block. Though it has a pin based cold plate design vs the normal fins. I am not sure if it should really cause any real difference though. You will have the same amount of water flowing through the coldplate either...

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    My design is reverse flow. I searched high and low for any testing. The best I found was people running their EK cpu blocks with the flow reversed due to wanting a cleaner layout for tubing. Anecdotal evidence at best. But they all seem to say 1 degree c at most. I will be running an Optimus...

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    I definitely understand. I am building my block for this specific pump and I am running too tight of tolerance for production variances of the pumps. The big plus for using the SPC is the smaller height added to your block and the one connection to a pump header on the MB. One of my previous...

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    The impeller is 39.91mm and is 3.81mm tall. Pump body is 17.75mm in height and 61.50 mm x 61.50 mm. Pump top cavity is 7.19mm deep. It grows from 43.04mm to 45.20 mm in diameter. There is a ring around the pump inlet that is 1.77mm tall. Hopefully this helps. Lehman

    Prototype CPU waterblock-pump mount combo (115x/AM4 compatible)

    Yes, the SPC pump has 50mm x 50mm mount pattern. I have one torn apart for my pump block modeling if you have any questions about it. Lehman

    Prototype FreeFlo 48mm CPU Block + Pump

    Apogee with a ddc 3.1. This is the original version, not the current one. I have not found actual testing on that one yet. This is a 12 watt pump so flow could be increased with an 18 watt pump. Though noise would increase...

    Prototype FreeFlo 48mm CPU Block + Pump

    Just an average guy who read a book one time. What I was trying to get at in the previous post is quite simple. His flow numbers through his block are not directly comparable to flow numbers just through the pump. It would be expected that the flow would decrease going through the cold plate...

    Prototype FreeFlo 48mm CPU Block + Pump

    For flow tests, and possibly noise tests. It would make sense to add a cpu block of comparable flow resistance to see how your block compares since yours includes the cpu block. Is your cold plate a custom design or is it from one from a current product? I designed mine around the Optimus...

    Prototype FreeFlo 48mm CPU Block + Pump

    Some noise results from testing by VSG. This first group is through a full loop. Raystorm Pro CPU block, a Swiftech Komodo R9-LE GPU block, a HWLabs Nemesis GTS 360 radiator and 2 sets of Koolance QD3 quick disconnects to go with 6 Bitspower 1/2″ x 3/4″ fittings . I believe this is an Asetek...

    Prototype FreeFlo 48mm CPU Block + Pump

    You should look at the EK SPC-60. it flows more than the DDC310 and is already set up to run off a fan header. Uses only 6 watts. Lehman

    Prototype Project 404 - Sub 10 liter Vertical Tower

    I will be testing the prototype as soon as I get it to verify the idea works. If it all goes well and if there is enough interest, we will be doing a small production run. Lehman

    Prototype Project 404 - Sub 10 liter Vertical Tower

    I just ordered a 3900x to test out this pump/block combo on. It will running through a XSPC tx360 radiator and an EKWB on a 5700xt. Hopefully I will have all the parts in the next week or two. Lehman

    Prototype Project 404 - Sub 10 liter Vertical Tower

    The pump block with mini res came from a need for this case. I have an Alphacool LT pump block but I was unsure if it could handle a 360 radiator and a video card. Since the LT solo is 39mm tall, that became our height limit. The block is just like Tazpr said. A bridge between an ekwb...
