    Chilly1 installation and insulation guide for A64

    In this example I will be using a A64 and a RS480 motherboard. I have included a picture of the DFI NF4 board as well to show the clearance. I installed RAM into to show clearance on these as well.

    These are the parts that I will be using except the threaded brass rods. Those are for the LGA775/socket480 mounting. They will be cut in half.

    4x wing nuts
    4x threaded rod
    4x nuts
    4x nylon washers
    2x 4"x4" foam pads
    2x foam donuts
    1x backing plate
    1x top plate 1/2" thick, 1/4" thick or offset available on request.
    1x top plate for ATI Radeon and Nvidia
    1x rubber o-ring
    1x discombobulator thing, it has the 1.5" hole in it.

    The centra top has enough give so that springs are not needed.


    This is the backing plate installed over the original CPU retention, this is made to fit and you can use thin foam tape layers or the supplied foam if you have room.


    Press the foam onto the posts, in this example I use nuts to secure the posts into the original retention plate. We use the same size threaded rod. I dislike the rod loosening from the bottom so I tighten the nuts on the bottom.


    I push the donut onto the discombobulator so that it sits flush. I then line it up and mark the holes in the foam.


    I then installed the head pieces with ring. It should look like this.

    Line up the core and push the foam down. This will be close enough as the top plate is aligned perfectly for the core. Keep pressure and tighten the wing nuts. The foam will push down to the motherboard for a tight seal.


    Take the time to fix the edge and check the seal. It should be tight all the way around. This seal will work for 24/7 operation.


    Another view showing clearances. RAM is still changeable without problems with insulation taking up space into the dimm sockets.


    Yes, I know the mobo is turned the wrong way for this example. I wanted to show best angles in this example. Also pictured is a sample of the production unit.

    To sum this up, this kit fits all current Chilly1 blocks including cascades.

    It fits A64, Socket 775 and Socket 478/480 CPU's
    It fits Radeon and Nvidia GPU
    It fits most north bridges with thru hole mounting.

    We also have a kit for the smaller 1" blocks to fit GPU or Chipset. I may cut mounts for socket 478/480 Dothan stuff at a later time.

    Very nice guide :thumbsup: Taking notes now

    One thing though... What about filling CPU socket with grease or sealing around it? It will not be needed for FULL 100% LOAD, 24/7 operation - like crunching D2OL ???

    I have not used dielectric grease in years. As you can see, I have been working on forcing the seal tight and this we feel is ready enough for end users.

    I can include dielectric grease, might be needed for high humidity areas and an added bit of protection in the socket cant hurt.

    awesome guide!
    does this system work for chilly1 blocks on totally unrelated systems (IE homebuilt but with a purchased chilly1 block)?

    Yes, this works with all Chilly1 blocks that have o-ring indent.

    I know you prolly can't but I'll ask anyway:

    I prolly can't get a Chilly1 block over here in the Netherlands (I could but it would be difficult and shippingcosts will be very high) so could you please explain (maybe in a PM) how exactly you make this sealring?

    Is it a lot of soft neoprene rolled up and taped together?

    I do like this insulation a lot cleaner than the sealstring of the prometia/vapochill, but since I'm a home phase change builder I would like a cheap setup not with a expensive block.

    If you can't tell I'll see if I can get some mates together and buy like a 30 Chilly1 blocks at once, with that much the shippingcosts would be worth it to send them here.

    Very nice guide Fugger! I am glad you made it a sticky too so that it will be easy to find when I need it here in a week or two. Actually, your guide makes it seem easier than I had originally thought.

    My only question is that I noticed that in the one pic on the back of the mobo with that foam and orginial backplate it made it very think. Will that hinder the mobo from screwing into the standoff's inside a regular case?

    So, if I am putting the mobo back in a case rather than on a bench table I use the Seal tape rather than the backplate?

    Nerm, yes.

    I would suggest two layers and use the original metal backplate that came with the mobo.

    Thanks, fugger! Does it matter if the layers are crissed crossed or not? How much of the mobo should be layered with the seal tape? In my mind I am picturing like an inch wider than the stock backplate all the way around.

    The hold down seems to be nudging slot1 of the ram. That anything to worry about?

    I am sure it can be trimmed.

    I had no problem removing and reinstalling memory modules.

    mhm... it looks like very tight fit there... that side of the hold-down plate should be filed just a bit to make folks feel more comfortable about changin mem sticks

    So does this kit come with cascades made before this topic was created or will I need to purchase the stuff on my own? (I'm assuming that OPB would have sent any insulation/mounting hardware that came with the cascade in the first place)
