Didn't plan to do anything today but received a package and my fingers started to tingle :)




Still in love with the red GT fins
Problem is I promised to watercool them. :p



But an idea popped in.
Hmm Corsair uses M2.5 ... Don't have them and certainly not longer ones :\




Ok re-tap them with M3 ...






That works, now the rest.






The fins work fine, they get pretty hot when cutting them :)




And done.




An EK block with some rad fins I love :)

Small update :)

Drilling and tapping the small radiator to M4.








And back to the MarsII block :)

Daniel has been very busy with it last week.
Really this guy owns :p








Copper part done.




While he was busy with this I had to think of something for the POM part.
Got a spontaneous idea to recycle the red aluminum parts from the original cooler.
Off course with paint :)




Daniel didn't know what to think of it but we went for it
Time for me to measure again :)






And re-measuring. That guy thinks about everything.




And the result.







Daniel really liked it a lot at the end too, I'm completely in love! :)
Here the renders.







What do you guys think about it?

Only thing he wants from me is as much possible friends on Facebook, so please go ahead if you can guys ;)
Mr3D a.k.a. Daniel!

I like it, a generic WB on it would make it blend into the other generic Video Cards, if you watch this one you get the feeling, and the certainty, that there is something with a strong kick under the hood :)
Awesome idea I'd say :toast:

That would be awesome with a custom L3p L4n logo, but would probably suck if you ever decided to resell it. Otherwise you could do an Asus Mars logo.

Just before reading your post I was thinking the same thing. Also the fact that you won't even need coloured coolant for it. You could go clear and have the plexi in red with white illumination. Although the clear plexi and tubing with red coolant and white lighting would look great.

And another small update :)

The top panel.

Was walking around for a while with this idea. Want the plexi window to be flush with the black brushed aluminum.
But with only handwork I don't see it succeed. 0.5mm difference will be visible.
So decided to let the plexi be lasered and then try to get the window in by hand. (Thanks Brian!)
Will also take the opportunity to let the small logo's be lasered too, no names, just logo's.

This is the idea




Then first of all I want to thank Daniel and Ivo again for all the effort. Even till now ( :p ) they still have fun in doing this :)

Blocks for the POM Top and the aluminum backplate.




And the milling :)




Still a bit rough.














After some sanding.




Never saw a backplate without bolts or holes in sight before :) (Daniel ftw!)




The plan is to get it anodized in black and then mill in something.




And then the POM block. Some more explaining here.
For example this is 1/100 of the code the machine will go to create the block. ;)

G2X82.098Y1.193I0.J-5.5
G1X126.96Y-14.456
G3X127.125Y-14.484I.165J.472
G3X127.17Y-14.482I0.J.5
G1X134.562Y-13.804
G2X135.064Y-13.781I.502J-5.477
G2X140.359Y-17.791I0.J-5.5
G1X140.584Y-18.592
G3X140.917Y-18.934I.481J.135
G1X170.725Y-28.234
G3X170.874Y-28.257I.149J.477
G3X171.346Y-27.921I0.J.5
G1X176.469Y-13.198
G2X181.161Y-9.529I5.194J-1.808
G1X236.129Y-4.486
G3X236.437Y-4.342I-.046J.498
G1X240.668Y-.111
G2X244.557Y1.5I3.889J-3.889





First a rubber cord a little smaller then the block is placed on the workspace.
This so the machine can suck it vacuum to the plate, off course it shouldn't move a mm.




First the holes and the basis shape.




Then adjust the rubber cord so the machine can go on.






And milling again.




The result.












Till the next update... the copperblock :)

Thanks my loyal follower :p

Lovely weather yesterday, so went out to lap my Cpu :)

This time I'm going to lap it faster then normal.
How to with extensive explanation can be found here:

Cpu still WITH warranty here :)

All you need..

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070911 [550x].JPG


Finding a way to protect the backside of the Cpu since Intel doesn’t
give a nice protection cap any more on boxed s1155 Cpu’s.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070913 [550x].JPG


So we use marking / painters tape.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070915 [550x].JPG


I’m using some rubber tape too.
This way you have a better grip and don’t get sore fingers.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070916 [550x].JPG


Starting with P400.
Only a few “wipes” and … gone warranty. :)
The sanding with P400 is the most important and longest step.
Some people tape the sandpaper to the mirror, but if you hold it tight with your other hand you don’t have to.
Just go from left to right on the paper.
Don’t press on the cpu, just use the weight of your hand.
Every 2 minutes turn the cpu 90° clockwise.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070917 [550x].JPG


2 Minutes with P400.
Nothing to see yet. :)

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070918 [550x].JPG


7 Minutes with P400.
You can see clearly this Cpu isn’t flat.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070921 [550x].JPG


Another 3 Minutes with P400.
Total 10 Minutes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070923 [550x].JPG


Another 10 Minutes with P400.
Total 20 Minutes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070925 [550x].JPG


And another 10 Minutes with P400.
Total 30 Minutes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070929 [550x].JPG


You can see the IHS is completely flat copper now.
Now the real polishing comes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070931 [550x].JPG


10 Minutes with P600.
Total 40 Minutes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070932 [550x].JPG


Skipping P800. :)
Straightly to P1000.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070936 [550x].JPG


10 Minutes with P1000.
Total 50 Minutes.
You can see it’s already starting to mirror.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070937 [550x].JPG


Further on with P1500.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070939 [550x].JPG


10 Minutes with P1500.
Total 1 hour.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070940 [550x].JPG


P2000.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070941 [550x].JPG


10 Minutes with P2000
Total 1 hours and 10 Minutes

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070942 [550x].JPG


Now we need to change our strategy.
First of all clean the mirror and the cpu.
This is because the old copper particles can ruin your polish job by rubbing them into the IHS.
Now you don’t go from left to right with the cpu.
Just move in a circle for 2 minutes and then turn the cpu 90° clockwise again.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070945 [550x].JPG


10 Minutes with P2500.
Total 1 hours and 20 Minutes.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070948 [550x].JPG


You can see the copper dust already starts to oxidise.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070949 [550x].JPG


5 Minutes with P2500.
Total 1 hours and 25 Minutes.
Almost done. :p

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/Cpu-lapping-2/550px/P1070950 [550x].JPG


Another 5 Minutes with P2500
Total One and a half hour!

Back to the case tomorrow :)
truly outstanding :O Just out of curiousity, how much would this improve temperatures from the original state?

Small update :)
(Slowly we're getting there)

First of all I want to announce a new sponsor .. Corsair!
After the Bit-Tech MOTY they contacted me for sponsoring this project.
(If you only knew how glad I am with this!)








Thanks Corsair!!




And ordered a laser cutted en engraved casewindow.





If I ever win the lotto ... :p







Done.




And one day later :)




Quick preview.




This weekend first saw it in and then a very lot of sanding I guess.




And another test.
