Alphacool Fury X - Making of the block

Water Cooling - www.overclock.net
Thought it might interest you to see how Alphacool designs and manufactures their GPU from nothing to the finished product so we will take brief look at what happens and how it works with pictures courtesy of Alphacool.

Stage 1: Getting the block

Once Alphacool have received a block they test it to make sure it is in working condition, evaluate the performance of the card and use laser temp sensors and thermal imaging to identify the cards "hot spots" idle, under load and overclocked.

Stage 2: Scanning

The card is stripped down and cleaned and then is scanned using a high tech 3D scanner that Alphacool can then use to build a render that they use to start to design the block

Stage 3: Render

Here the block starts to get designed from the scans and virtual testing begins

Stage 4: 3D print tests

Once the basic designs are complete the block is then 3D printed so that the block can be test fitted, and issues can be easily identified

Stage 5: Re-print / Adjustments

If any mistakes are spotted the design is altered, re-printed and tested.

Stage 6: Production

The design is confirmed and is sent to the factory for mass production. (pics to follow) '); }
