are the yellow squares where mosfets will go ? because i think it would work better if the water was flowing over the area the heat is coming from - just my opinion :P

good luck though man :wink:

Coils do, but i wonder do they need cooling at all. Tests will show, when i finish new fancy cover for the PSU.

It was designed to fit into standard 80mm cooler holes. I will try to make normal photos of block standalone with acrylic cover, but there is a sketch in original post.

Made a safe test on two old harddrives. Voltages normal, scope diagrams normal. Started my PC without water system connected, ran a 3Dmark once. Waterblock was hot. Finaly, a normal test with Reserator connected:

So preliminary conclusions - succesfull installation, powerfull and dead silent.

And a small bonus:

Nice project! Very professionally done WB too. I'd love to be able to try the same thing if i had the equipment. What was the pic of the inside of the zalman for? Any mods done to it?

BTW are you going to use the reserator to cool the cpu too? or just the psu? cooling a PSU is VERY demanding.

nice.. im gonna get me some copper when i get the time and i'll make a block similar to this and ill have the output of the block on the outside of the case (i have an external setup) so i can have the tubing go straight into the computer, through the cpu block then through the hdd and gpu blocks then through the PSU lock and out the case.

but yeah that block looks real good, and the wiring :wink:

moree pics :P :P whats the cover gonna look like ? im thinking for mine just prettymuch a frame and wire mesh, sortof like Bladerunners (http://zfz.com/projects.asp?request=enermaxupdate)

WB is factory made. My friend makes and sells waterblocks, so i've ordered few custom pieces, this one for PSU, two for video RAM on X800, two for usual DDR :)

Zalman pic was just for fun, not everyone seen in from inside :)

Final installation will feature two Reserators, one hot loop CPU-GPU-NB and second cold loop PSU-HDD-VRAM-DRAM. Running HDD in same loop with CPU and GPU is really bad idea, i've tested it.

More pics will be in an article i plan to write after finishing it. Block will be installed in 80mm cooler hole and top cover will be replaced with acrylic one.
