Hello,

After have done my Voodoo5 6000 Gold Second Edtion I have a new project : Voodoo5 6000 rev.3700A WaterCooling edition. (with a special hard work of an excellent man)

Step by step :

- Waterblocks :

That is the coding that allows the machine to make that logo on front waterblock

Delrin + Copper

Voodoo5 6000 heatsinks removed

http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/974503v5k6heatsinksoff.jpg

Just a quick sketch up of the card and what needs to be cooled.
the green is the pcb, the bright red is the HiNT chip, and the 4 squares are the GPU's.


http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/780325sketchup.jpg

The whole back of the card will be cooled.* One large block.* a large single piece of thermal tape will be used.

The one large sheet will touch every inch of the board and pull the heat off.

the chips themselves get hot. The back of the chips were probably getting hot from the lack of cooling on the top of them.

This rear block will take off any heat the top block will produce.* It will pull any heat off of every component that it touches.

A CAD model of the card.* Things to cool in black, and things to avoid in red, and the very limited holes in the board.

Basic overall shape :

http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/798457Voodoo03.jpg

http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/715695Voodoo04.jpg

The blue outline that is the funny shape is the copper
the black outline is the overall card.
The copper is what needs to be touching the chips, so I will avoid all those red areas.
The plastic is thick enough to just mill out depressions for the components.
So the black plastic will cover the entire card
giving you the sleek appearance of a seamless block.
A copper plate that touches the HiNT chip, GPU's and Ram.
Then the black plastic is a much larger piece that covers most of the card.
Each block will be 19mm thick.
V5k6 card is 1.6mm thick, and 19mm of copper and plastic on each side


All of my stuff (WaterCooling kit).
I can't put into words, how powerful just one of those fans are.
I will have to screw this thing to a table.
I firmly believe that the radiator will levitate if all three are on.
I am still speechless from the power of a single fan.
I have all the power imaginable, and it sounds like a jet starting up :)

Delta Fans 120 mm * 38 mm - 252 CFM ai capacity* :

Here is a print to scale (I hope) version of the copper section of the waterblock.

http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/306626printoscale.jpg

The plastic top part will have the same top and left boundaries.

Cut a prototype out of aluminum

Here is a basic prototype of the copper board that will touch all the chips.

http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/356098proto.jpg
A few minor improvements to a few lines of code and it will be ready to cut.

Block progress :

The backside blocks initial outer shape is cut. Fits like a charm.

Milling of the Vram section:

http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/292564blockprogress8.jpg

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is the O-ring sealing didnt work. Thats a simple fix-i will seal it with a silicone gasket sealant along with the O-rings. So thats really not a big issue. It will never ever leak.
The good news is the block is very effective. when i was doing the leak test i pumped some cold water and the block instantly got very cold. The performance of these blocks are very good!

Hi ,

I don`t understand all of your text but it looks very interesting. You´re work with the metal looks good.:daumen:
Do you use the Voodoo for your normal computer or its just a secondary one ?

Simple, but nice design. But why haven't you integrated a true cooling structure? Sure, the VSA100 doesn't get THAT hot, but you are obviously not aiming for "not bad" temperatures (but for "as cool as possible") and manufacturing time is probably not an issue with only one block to be made.
Another idea would be common top for mutiple sinle-GPU bottomplates from full-blown commercial coolers or simply a common mounting plate for these. (Watercool had a nice custom V5 5500 Design back then, with two Heatkiller GPU 1.0 sharing a common mounting System and mountingplates for the -still available in some shops- Heatkiller NB/GPU 2.x are actually very easily made)



Regarding this forum, two notes:
- There is an editing-function ("Bearbeiten" Button, with the typical pen-symbol). Multi-posts are rather inconvenient to read (an actually banned in the forum guidelines, though in case of this thread we will probably make more then one exception, as the threadstarter probably has not read and understood these. bad, bad boy ;) )
- You may also upload your pictures within in the forum ("Anhänge verwalten"-button below the posting). This not only guarantees that your pictures will stay with your post (unlike external hosters which may remove the picture afte some months - which is short compared to possible interest in V5 6000 projects), is also allows you to integrated pictures directly into the thread (using the [img][i]picture-URL[/i][/img]-Tag, that ist blocked for external servers) and it is simply much faster in loading and therefore more convienient for your readers. (it is also requested by the rules and in fact mandatory in several parts of the forum - but see above ;) )

3dfx - the reason I am still addicted to GPUs...

I feel like a young kid, having no idea about how to really push hardware when reading these topics.

Thanks trevor for all you do and document with these 3dfx cards - gives me a good read ALWAYS :daumen:

500 USD for the complete blocks.
Imo that's way to much. In germany alone, there are at least two teams(Liquid Extasy and Anfi-tec) who would have made a leak proof version including the mentioned "real cooling structure" for ~half the price(maybe even less). Maybe some bigger company would have even made a luxury block for free, just for the PR value.

EDIT: Just noticed the second thread. Seems like you found out about LE by yourself(or al_bundy found you) ;) .

Rear Plastic :

Voodoo5 6000 logo :

First step :

Front waterblock:

http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/910303frontblock.jpg

He came across a slight problem.* H can't mount the plate without covering the holes.
Rear plate would cover up holes.
The solution is I stick it on.
I can purchase a special role of tape so I can remove it whenever I want.
I can purchase some extra tape to stick the rear plate on waterblock.
That is a very easy solution.


http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/805308rearblock1.jpg

Still trying to dress up the Voodoo5 plate, but here its almost finished.* Both blocks are sealed watertight now.* Just awaiting installation...

I present to you the completed front side GPU block:
