    the RBX is the better performing block by 1 Cw, only lowers the head by 2.2 inches more than the TDX, it looks a hell of alot bettter, and ive had my heart set on it suince the begining...

    AND

    [​IMG]
    it appears the TDX follows a similar kind of shape / scale as the RBX :(, if not bigger !
    ***EDIT*** thats rubbish lol, i think that one will fit, but i really really want the RBX ...really ***
    may still eb an option though, id much rather know the sizes though to be honest, just for piece of mind

    heres my photoshop idea of the blocks fitment, as you can see the issue is with the capacitors around the socket, that was going off soem measurments i got a while ago, its very rough, but its too close to call:

    I've just found a comparison between the TDX, RBX, and LR cascade.

    [​IMG]

    The results show that using a tdx with a no. 4 or 5 nozzle are identical or sometimes better than the RBX.

    It's the base he needs to cut there dude, the end that are curved. Looks tricky but i think DD move the blco kdown by 1.5'' or so to clear them caps but still be central to the core of the CPU

    good find !!

    im going to experiment with the different nozzles too.
    i wonder how the #5 nozzle compares from being int he TDX to the RBX.
    someone has offered me an RBX, which means i just need to buy the 775 top for it, so im going to have a go at modding the RBX before i fork out for a new TDX i think. !
    i believe it will work

    EDIT:
    heres the low down on the nozzles:
    #2: 10% Bigger
    #3: 20% Bigger
    #4: 10% Smaller
    #5: Multiple Smaller Nozzles
    #6: Blank - make your own.

    ive had a long, hard think about it...
    the problem is, the caps are say 1-2mm too high, so i can either cut a small recess, or 'step' on the underside of the base to clear them, where the copper is thick enough, os cut a bit more of a chunk out to put in NEXT to the caps.

    theres a pic to see how much i habve to work with here... it looks liek i have a good 6-7 mm of solid copper around the block around the seal to play with.

    Any chance of bending the caps slightly?

    the can be slightly bent out of the way, but theyr soldered tight against the board, so theres not alot of room , it may give the edge that i need though !
