    Exclamation [AF] Andreoid & Finnzwerg watercool tinkering (TONS OF PIX)

    Hi everybody!
    I would like to show you some pictures what I (André) with a friend (Finn) do tinker in our free time.
    We both come from Cologne, Germany.

    Our crafting threads on hobby basis consist in many forums since 2007.
    The self made waterblocks have exited many readers, and some of you allready know our homemade coolers. Maybe some of you allready had discovered our pictures in the waterblock-picture-threads in other forums. With the handcafted coolers and complete Mainboardsets we leisurely got a name in watercooling by cooling enthusiasts.

    In close cooperation with many forum users, we have developed a lot of waterblocks.
    Often, you can take part of the developement and be really close with decisions here in the forum.

    I hope that u are going to like reading my posts! ^^

    at the beginning a picture from our old workshop in my basement:

    Left side: a noise-protection-box with CNCs, on the right...our manual drill.
    at the bottom: this is me...gluing the CNC coolant effluent

    the workshop was really small.
    It was 9m² and is now too small for our new CNC
    But see below for more




    our standard Northbridgestruktur on the left - right side, our logo (ΛF) [ André & Finn] mowed in lawn: D



    left side, our first CNC - right, a couple of EVGA 680i PWM copper bottoms


    here our new CNC milling machine ...
    here in the thread you can follow the assembling
    from the CAD to the implementation of the real machine


    and here are a few waterblocks ^^


    the old basement was much, much too small for our new CNC machine...so we watched out for a new room.
    An acquaintance have had a little space for ous in his wooden hall.
    The place was just twice as large as my cellar, but hopefully that will be enough space for our new workshop.


    in the next few posts I will provide you with pictures of building the new workshop,.. so stay tuned


    MfG [ΛF] Andreoid & [ΛF] finnzwerg

    Are you sure this is just a hobby?
    It's look like you're a basement production and expanding to a bigger shop.
    And how much is this machine cost any way?...I want one

    Welcome to Pure OC !

    Sweet set up ! How long have you been making your own blocks ? Do you have any plans to make LN2 pots in the near future if you expand your shop?

    just search ^^ ull find, i promisse





    next week ill do some asus 2 gene pwm blocks...

    the room for the new workshop at the beginning looked like this:


    Storage -.- good that vacuum cleaner exists ^^


    The wall you can see here is the wall to the outside.
    We have embedded a couple of thick fiberglass mats so it's not going to be so cold in winter.


    it is finally a more lighted workshop ... This is much better than a cellar


    over the fiberglass mats, was stapled a protective film


    then we started with the casing:


    here the first wall is finished:


    That was't this easy with the 2 oblique beams

    oh no,..limited to 10 pictures -.-









    and here the second wall


    Then we started with the ceiling, here is Finn tightening the plates of Rigips

    it was the first time we did something
    of course, have forgotten the smal beams under the Rigips-plates -.-
    otherwise it would have been much more straight..... annoying







    While this here looks like total disability, but I'll show it ....
    forgot the tissue-bound and the mixture was not the right thing ...
    afterwards a friend of mine came over and has corrected our faults ^^

    so, that I not only bother you with dirty pictures of building the workshop
    here something brilliant:

    Finn and I had bought two 16GB USB Flash Drives supertallent
    these were ideal to refine ^^


    very slowly and carefully engraved with the CNC


    like it?

    Guys your work is brilliant and i am looking forward for more updates...Question is this:
    How do we buy your waterblocks? or how are they distributed through various online channels?
