ATI x100 series compat. with Cool vga blocks?

Agile,

 

You need to get a nice metric scale and take a few measurements on the graphics card. Then compare them to the attached diagrams used for making the Chipset/GPU brackets.. :biggrin:

 

The brackets are wide enough to make your own holes if your hole pattern isn't listed. :winking:

 

Peace!

 

Stev

Thanks Steve and Pete,

 

Steve, I thought you wre leaving last year. Glad you're still here.

 

Yeah, I was waiting for the XT but was wondering if anyone had tried the XL yet, since they should be the same.

 

I should be able to modify the brackets. If I get an XT before evryone, I will surely show my work and the configuration of an XT with the Cool blocks.

Agile,

 

Well, I left in a small way. Other priorities required more of my time at work.

 

Since Delphi worked with Corsair on the GPU and chipset cold-blocks, I tend to give support for these components. Actually, these cold-blocks are the ones I developed and painstakingly worked out the hold-down hardware. My lead engineer managed to do a really neat hold-down solution for those hook-looped Northbridge PCI/E chipsets. All-in-all, we make a great team!

 

The other two things I tend to keep up with in these forums are the DDC pump and the coolant issues.

 

Peace!

 

Stev

 

 

Well glad you're still snooping around. You're clearly an asset and vital to these forums. Not that Wired can't hold it down.

 

Love the vga blocks. I like the Swiftech blocks for the cpu and it was clearly a wise choice for the COOl series. Probably the best kit out there since so many have joined the WC kit fray, a lot of cheap crap is out there.

 

The full copper block and the rentention bracket are awesome and simple to install. I pulled out my Swiftech blocks since they are a pay and have a high profile. I was unable to put my 6800s in SLI on a DFI board with the Swiftech blocks since the slots are maybe 2 inches apart. All in all, a wonderful and well thought out design. Better temps at idle and under load too, even with a lower profile block.

 

But I have had a lot of different vga blocks, and the Cool blocks are the best. I wish the CS block had a lower profile though. Doesn't work out for SLI.

 

Hope Delphi gets through its current storm.

He's around in other forums as well :)

 

Stev, either your rig or your sig needs updating :)

 

Wired,

 

Well, that's the machine I have at home presently. If you have peeked over at the other forum, I'm looking at stepping up to a AMD64 939 type of system. Hoping that happens before the end of the year.

 

Of course, here at work, I have various machines to deal with by run cooling tubes into and out of. :biggrin:

 

 

 

Agile,

 

It was a tough job getting the GPU blocks to fit without hitting anything and having the tubing run without complications.

 

Yes indeed, a storm it is. Life has many storms, I just need the Peace to ride this one out. :D:

Sup Biohazard. Long time no see.:D: How's it going?

 

Any new projects coming along on your end?

I'm still working on my big cube...............:eek: I'm thinking of installing a second pump in series into the system to see if I can get a little bit lower temps.............:D:
