    Today there are only a short on our CNC milling machine

    We bought us a 2nd high-frequency spindle for the smaller CNC.
    It has to be fastened.
    I cut an aluminum plate and drilled the corresponding mountingholes:
    [​IMG]

    The black rectangular plastic piece around the spindle neck is already an air lock made from Pom.
    The spindle has a couple of air ducts for cooling and it's almost like a hair dryer.
    [​IMG]

    In addition to the plate it does require a splash protection because of the coolant.
    This should be placeable as quickly and practically, and not direct the air downwards.
    [​IMG]

    So, a customized plexiplatte was formed with a heat gun
    Drille the Holes for the air-outlets
    [​IMG]

    and filed
    [​IMG]

    Then we still need more flexible ...
    Double-sided tape to fix:
    [​IMG]

    Then something plastic film
    [​IMG]

    The spindle with its holder looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    then the pom-air lock:
    [​IMG]

    and splash protection:
    [​IMG]

    protection simply stuck through with the stress of the plexi.
    [​IMG]

    On the picture you can see the air ducts also:
    [​IMG]

    and this will protect the whole when milling the waterblocks :)

    eehm ...lol




    atm I don't post this much :(
    Finn takes care at the most necessary in the workshop during the week.
    I am mainly in my home community in Krefeld and in the middle of an exam period.
    Way to making here some new things such as, for example, Set compilations:
    [​IMG]
    http://www.anfi-tec.de/Kompatibilitaetsliste.pdf

    Despite that we are both having too much to do much outside of Anfi-tec,
    there are a few small changes not only online.

    Our garage get increases!
    One of my former trainers has remind me in resolutiuon his hobby workshop
    and had sold me its well-preserved Robling lathe:)
    I've came along with a good buddy of me and picked up the lathe with much too small trailer.

    On the ceiling is a chain was fastened to steel beams... the chain was, however,
    hopelessly overwhelmed with the Turn, which we even had to let the air out of the tires.
    [​IMG]

    The "Little one" probably weighs as to the 600-700kg.
    Here the car, but .. not yet finished lashed.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Our dear neighbor has helped us with his ant to unload.
    [​IMG]

    Now the lathe is on a pallet and wait to move into the workshop :)
    Because this must happen before a proper foundation has yet to be cast.
    This requires a bit of wood for a frame
    [​IMG]

    Or direct a child's coffin: X
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then removed the woodden ground with a circular saw at the appropriate place:
    [​IMG]

    Now that's missing is the concrete, but .. that will come when it is a bit more warm.
    [​IMG]
    Before coming up questions whether we now are able to produce fittings, ...no!
    At first, the lathe is not yet set up and, secondly, it is conventional
    (ie no CNC machine) for mass production. But I hope that we have a few
    more options when tinkering with things as water coolers.

    btw ...
    in the middle of next week I'll get loan one P55 EVGA FTW
    from the user "fhantastic" from "Forumdeluxx"

    now i show you some waterblocks for the EVGA P55 FTW 200

    [​IMG]


    the design of the NB / SB cooler at first looked like this
    [​IMG]
    required after the first fitting of Plexidummys add another notch
    and I have reduced the engravings somewhat...
    well here you can see why:
    [​IMG]

    here he is Finn assembling the cooler:
    [​IMG]

    the NB / SB cooler does work like our last MSI 790FX full cover block:
    [​IMG]
    (das Bild ist von dem LUXX User Schlingel_INV)
    He uses the thermal conductivity of the copper
    The SB does not have much heat and so a copper bridge is enough.
    the woeld be only space for one channel, what you can see here
    [​IMG]
    Then one of the fittings would have to sit between the graphics cards. -.-

    The space for the voltage transformer cooler was not that huge,.. so I had to build up in the air because of the G1/4" connections -.-
    [​IMG]
    At least I was able to continue to use often used tops ..
    this not only saves my nerves ^^ furthermore it gives a consistent picture
    [​IMG]


    what does EVGA think at the EVGA P55 NB fixings?
    I do not know -.-
    Never seen so many screws in a cooler, ..
    [​IMG]

    ******************************************
    here are a few impressions with 13mm Dangerden fittings :)
    [​IMG]
    like this picture
    [​IMG]
    same in horizontal
    http://www.anfi-tec.de/forenbilder/P55/8.JPG

    et voilà
    [​IMG]

    The Voltage Regulator waterblocks probably also fit on the standard EVGA P55 FTW
    who else does have a P55 EVGA ftw can try one's luck ^^ with this http://www.anfi-tec.de/EVGAP55skizze.pdf


    I'll probably need a photo tent, .. terrible dark pictures -.-
    I'm sorry: D

    btw... some more evga wbs,..but these are for an old 780i ftw :)

    Yes good old German engineering kicks major ass and these smart, talented guys are continuing that tradition big time.

    As for your last statement, however, there are a billion or so deceased African slaves, Chinese laborers and dirt-poor Irish immigrants who would like a word with you, just to name a few.

    And by the way Germany no longer leads the world in exports anymore thanks to guess who...

    it is time again for something new from us

    guess what there is new about this image :D ^^
    [​IMG]

    exactly the color!
    [​IMG]


    after a few tests we can color our copper bottoms fairly uniformly dark
    [​IMG]

    it is not really like the deep black of delrin/acetal or the oring
    depending on the light rather a dark gray ...
    [​IMG]

    but it harmonizes well with the POM
    [​IMG]

    I had unfortunately just make my desk lamp for pictures :(
    [​IMG]

    I will do on the weekend times pictures of it on a motherboard
    if you want to see it??!
    otherwise, it want to be said that this is a new block for Gigabyte P55 boards :)
    the new PWM031 water block

    in our shop one can already choose a white cover for the block you wanna order...
    but less than 4% of our customers use want the white tops at their request ...
    do you think it the better choice of colored bottoms than a white cover?
    what do you think of the coloring?

    hmm no reply? :(

    btw,..the black bottom surface is treated chemically with no paint that limit the thermal transfer



    After the chipset coolers, we have now also in the PWM blocks a considerable amount of models.
    Atm we do have 31 different models.

    i have gathered some pwm blocks together:
    f.l.t.r. PWM 031, 030, 024, 023, 021, 015, 014, 013
    [​IMG]

    Well these are now a couple of bottoms and all with the same cover...
    if I now overlapping all bottoms I have all the necessary hole spacing:
    [​IMG]

    But this sux if i have to mill a new cooler for each new board at a 1 mm difference ...dont you think so too?

    so lets see my Troubleshooting in the 3D CAD:

    with 3 different mounting lashes as in the UCDs
    and 4 mountingholes...
    [​IMG]

    The bottom is 13mm wide and the closest chanel in the block
    is flow optimised to reduce the flow resistance

    Here is a sectional view:
    [​IMG]

    The top is made of pom/acetal and does have G1/4" windings.
    the overhang is 9mm high, and and makes space for RIO or capacitor components
    [​IMG]

    Here a 3D PDF,.to turn, to peek, hide components... ... etc
    but i doesnt cool^^

    [​IMG]

    http://www.anfi-tec.de/forenbilder/UCD4PWM.pdf

    now the question...should we keep the old pwm models?
    The UCDs have replaced the old models NBSB almost completely ... and this quite successfully.
    After the success of UCDs, other German manufacturers had attempted to develop universal solutions, too.
    It would not surprise me if, after the launch of this universal PMW block, some German manufacturers will try to develop something like this, too.

    Unfortunately, I'm not tech-savy enough to offer you any advice :( But I can welcome you to TPU :D

    You guys do some very nice work. Keep it up :toast:

    hey wait are you selling blocks for the evga P55 FTW?? I think the mounting holes on your blocks are a little different (like there are more holes) from the P55 FTW and the FTW NF200 but im still interested in buying a set but do you able to ship to the u.s.??

    the FTW has 2 mounting holes where the NF200 chip is on the FTW NF200 where the FTW NF200 has 4 or 5 but they should still line up. im interested.

    Is it at all possible to purchase your blocks? I might have missed it in the thread. Would it be possible to custom order one(s)?

    google for our team-name "Anfi-tec"
    hi...sry we dont do waterblocks for graficcards
    we only made a gpuonly block.... but our machines are to smal/weak to mill a graficcard-fullcoverblock.

    now in the pictures above you have those tabs that move so their more universal. Do you think those would warp easy due to pressure from being screwed down?
