I know its a needle in the hay stack right now, been looking for some Apogee GT blocks. Know any sites? Did they develop/make a replacement for it? Any suggestions on an alternative universal block? Any make is fine, mainly for s478. What are you guys using on your s478?

I found a period Zalman block model # ZM-WB2 good for 462, 478 & 754, seems to work well. I'm sure it's been brought up but the board mounting holes are in a square configuration on the 478 board I have was going to measure and see if they are close to a 775's mounting holes?
MrPaco "hey Pete its not called hoarding, its called connoisseur savior of all things computer related"
trouble is with those blocks pete is the top plate and its shape can hit caps , chokes n stuff depending on the platform and its arrangements, ive had a few of them, i dont bother with them now for that reason, and frank if youre gunna buy one steer clear of the plastic topped ones, the threads crack and split easily, had that happen too, also you gotta cut the threads down on some barbs with the longer threads coz they go too far in the block and restrict water flow

If you find one of those blocks Frank take it apart and sit a 478 plastic backing plate on it and use a bit of insulated wire that will go through the holes of the backing plate and dip it in correction fluid and poke it through the backing plate holes to mark where your holes need to be exactly I would use a 3/16 bit. If the 775 or AM2 lugs get in the way as Shane said just cut them off.
Ya never know Scotty might jump in and have the link working for you.
Dont get me wrong, I have 2 apogee gt already. Its that every time team cups comes around or similar multi-platform comps I try to set up as many boards as I can so's not to have to keep changing cooling around over n over, this way allows me to return to a board to rebench when I want without haveing to start from scratch . Much easier for me since I can only really do most of my benching on Sat n Sun cause of my work hours. So I can come home and do a couple with out spending up time inter changing parts. I'm lazy like that Just a sample:
Got more set ups in another room... Wife just loves that
zila1: Strange. I hear my dad's voice all of the time. Like he's watching over me. Sometimes I hear that strong voice of his calling me. And I hear his laughter. It sounds so real. Like he's standing right next to me.

zila1: I can't wait to see him again. One day God willing when I finally leave this place I will see my Dad, my hero again.

zila1: My Dad was all over Europe during WWII. Served under General Patton. My Dad kicked some ass. It's no wonder he was always such a tough bastard and could drink anyone under the table. I miss my Dad.

zila1: I am feeling very emotional tonight. It took a year but I finally received a copy of my Dad's military discharge papers. I feel very proud of him and I also miss him very much. On the 21st will be a year since I lost my Dad.

ShrimpBrime: Thanks, I appreciate that! I only left because the pay scale was too low. They considered me as a Tech 2 last time. Which I'm beyond that and they know it. Diesel Tech and welding fabrication is my specialties.

funsoul: That's fantastic! Good for you! Glad they're giving you what you need
Aug 15, 2022 20:22:01 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Actually going back to a previous employer. I left on good terms, the pay was too low. This time, they are making up for it.

Vinster: Where my parents lived they made that change also. I think it was because the storm drains were backing up and people started charging the city for upkeep on the section between the house and the city drain. with no proper demarcation they stopped

austin86: Vinster its odd here, gutters can't go to a storm drain anymore but they can drain into the street right next to one lol. I think its more of a city property vs residents property thing, IDK all I know is the town asked us not to drain my gutters into it.
