    Well swiftech no longer supports the apogee gt and I needed a 1156 mounting bracket. So I decided to make my own. Pump from Harbour Freight and radiators from a F550.

    they do make a 1156 mount which has the same holes as 1155 :)

    I sold my Apogee GT block to someone here on TPU that ordered the 1156 mount for a I7-875K

    I guess I didn't search hard enough. I didn't really feel like spending money and besides mine is better :p

    yea just wanted to let you know that ANYTHING 1156 will fit 1155 due to same mounting holes

    looks good , nice finish, does it take pressure well, is it acrylic or something sturdier.

    The hardware store is closed so I went to the auto parts store and got some rubber hose zero leaks so far and good pressure. The bracket is working very well. I will have to play around with torquing the nuts also the pump is from harbour freight. It is acrylic; I was able to torque it and it started bowing slightly and didnt crack.
