Just something to mess around while staying home, still figuring out channels for the metal block. 😅 May (or may not) see the light of the day. May just make a dozen for enthusiasts, let me know if you are interested. Suggestions welcome.

Specs
  • CPU : 115x/AM4 compatible
  • SFF Case Compatibility : CPU height clearance of 60mm (including Steck)
  • Dimensions : 86(L) x 62(W) x 20(H), excluding pump

Me I'm interested in this, let's give it a try and see how it perform.

Also very interested, however I do agree with a previous comment of just making a top for a preexisting block.
Either direction, I'm still very interested.

That will be easier yes, but worry about the after sales support I need to provide... so many different water-blocks out there. I will try provide the metal block also, to make it a more complete product.

Just DDC for the moment. Updated specs.

Are the mounting dimensions the same, 50mmx500mm? Need to find the SPC specs before I can confirm.
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.

How about the impeller? Diameter of the cavity? And how much does it stick out from the body of the pump? Well will be best if I can find the dimensions of the top.

Is it possible to extend the block a little bit here and there to cool the vrm and chipset too?
