Mindch1|l's newest creation. The Quad Direct Die (QDD).



It combines the power of 4x40mm 225W TECs to be powered at 12V. This gives you a theoretical Qmax of 220W at 30C Delta, or 334W at 20C. If you keep those water temps low, this will keep your CPU low.

Like Mind's previous Direct Die Block, this one comes with a controller for dew point if you are paranoid about condensation or if you wanted to control the temperature of the block. It's also still standardized for LGA1156/1155, but an AM3 and LGA2011 adaption is in the works.

I won't bore you with all the mumbo-jumbo like I did with the single block. If you are looking at something like this, you either don't care or you probably know enough to get around already. In this testing, the Quads Voltage was run at 16V, which gives you a theoretical Qmax of 220W @ 40C Delta, 334W @ 30C, or 500W @ 20C.

Test with Ivy Bridge on Water @ Stock CPU, 30C Water (The chip has horrid thermal resistance and was to hot to run overclocked)

If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer them for you!
