    now I have to drill holes on the base for the mounting screws of coldplate,
    use 12 screws (M6) to tighten the cells at the base, the assembly is done in such a way as to have all the screws that pull in the same manner avoiding imbalances that can affect a good thermal contact and functioning of cells.
    The screws are represented by blue circles R5 and R3 ...

    nice cnc work, i've worked in cnc for about 3 years with my old company.. To all the haters out their, its more trickier then you actually think!

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    Please tell me this isn't even remotely pointed at me?

    I have 4x the experience as you do working with CNC machinery (2, 3 & 5 Axis-Programmed, setup & operate), so if I've said something in this topic, I might know a little about that which I speak of.

    I practiced with the CNC of centering holes 0.5mm deep,
    following the pre-holes I drilled with precision the base with a tip diameter of 3.5mm steel coated with colbalto,
    the tape mounted on the tip is a visual reference that allowed me to understand when the tip had fallen down to 6.5mm below 6.5mm risked drilling from the base.
    The spindle of the drill turning at 500 rpm a speed that prevents dangerous overheating and with whom I was well along the chip shows the goodness of speed, the cutting edges worked well drilled to 500 laps every inch filled the hole with svitol to lubricate the cutting ....



    finished with the drill bit 3.5mm I enlarged the holes to 4.5mm ...
    followed with another drill 5mm holes have expanded the previous ...



    After I drilled threaded holes, with a male thread M6 ....
    The assembly screws M6 steel based on the following drawing posted a few lines ago



    This is the first assembly of the waterblock.
    I now realize how complex and how much work I did ...



    everything fits perfectly the cover is perfectly centered with difussor...

    Thanks! The project continues with the processing coldplate



    following the pre-holes made on the router, hole with the drill holes of 3.5mm, the holes are widened to 4.5 5.5 ... 6.0mm



    I try to align the holes the screws at the base...



    Perfect alignment

    Well, no offense to you but all you've done is criticize and insult Cnc Guru's machine work and his project which is a little unfair considering its HIS project and he's simply sharing it here with everyone else. No matter how it turns out, I'm sure it was a fun project for Cnc Guru and fun for everyone else to watch it come along.

    If you want to build something better with your machining skills, by all means go ahead and post plenty of pictures like Cnc Guru so the rest of us can admire your skills as well.

    Excuse me? My first post was advice to slow the speeds and feeds down to avoid chatter and get a better finish, my second post was commentary about writing the actual code, which anybody can do with CAD/CAM. . .there's no thinking or skill involved with CAD/CAM. . .and my last post was to Johnny87au to inform him of my former experience as a machinist in case he missed it earlier in the topic. Not once have I "criticize or insult" the work Cnc has done.

    Basically...

    Although the post about using CAD/CAM was worded as an insult to Cnc Guru's intelligence.

    Sorry to say, but as a long time reader, short time poster, it's true, I realize you have been doing this along time and have a lot of great information and experience at your disposal, but a lot of times you come across as too cool (which makes it hard to not skip your posts some times, which I do not want because I joined this forum to learn what I could about water cooling.). There is constructive criticism and then there is being a .

    with a scrap of paper I take a bit of polishing compound for car-body and rub his face up to consume all the dough ..
    los chased dried with paper traces the abrasive paste remained and continue to rub....



    the result will be spectacular....

    ....... The package arrived at my destination

    From 'America 2 cells from 320 watts
    we see are based on ....

    fit is a 2mm leaving space for the passage of screws ...
    I sawed brass screws retaining the cover so you can mount the above coldplate cells without the screw threads face thickness coldplate preventing contact with the cells ...

    measure the depth of blind tapped holes of the base plus the thickness of the cells and the thickness of coldplate ...

    19.5mm depth ...
    eist does not meet that standard screws that measure affects them tailor

    with an Allen wrench tucked into lives not to burn your finger, pier screws using the smooth face side of the disc wheel, this face can grind without damaging vibration also threads are leaving the bevelled face grinded the screw 90 degrees thread ...
    to bring the total length of the screw 19.5mm I molar 3mm or 3 fillets in molar screw threads into account that they go into a thousand sparks ... bevelled 3 threads I stop and cool the screw to move to the next sequence, then create the wheel with a bevel on each screw thread so as not to damage the thread + weak copper base bevel is the bare minimum ....

    each screw is tested to check that goes to make the cells without stopping at the bottom of the blind threaded hole loosely cell ...
    To do this I create balanced forces tighten the 2 screws in diagonal corners of the cell so the cell does not die, tighten the screw to test and try to muoverre the cell if it remains locked under the pressure of the screw otherwise pier the screw until the screw does not tighten the cell ...
    2 turns of thread come into contact the two upcoming turns shaking the cell ...
    pressure flexes the base and colplate cells crack under the pressure generated by the screws but I noticed no crack ...
    I hope they are rustling of settling ...

    Very nice project man, and very well done using home based tools. What are you planning on fitting this to?

    Call it an observation, but would turning your TEC units around 90deg be better so your black wires aren't in the path of a screw thread? [They look dimensionally square in the picture].

    Look forward to the finished product.

    Just a word to the wise, I would strongly recommend not grinding against the side of a grinding wheel. This is a good way to cause a wheel to fail.

    coldplate to mount the processor on the new problems arise ...
    I was hoping to fly over the 3 capacitors shown by the arrows, instead coldplate hits all 3 capacitors,




    By downloading the spacing of the holes of my Soket AM2 I realized that the holes in retaining the cage against the cpu end screws coldplate.
    mounting screw holes in the mobo screws colplate impact given the size thought to have space enough to drill straight holes and threading the coldplate check, now I have to invent a solution to the problem




    the solution is as follows; assemble two 5mm thick aluminum brackets on the brackets we get 4 slots 15mm long, in the slots 4 screws M3 going to screw them into the slots coldplate allow me to move the water block in the best position to prevent the capacitors ....
    pass through the bracket holes coldplate, thread through holes in the bracket to the mobo aganciare the waterblock to the plate in support of the mobo ...
