What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

My name is Arek Tobiszewski and I am CNC CAD-CAM designer, also a creator, inventor, and a dreamer.

Four years ago, I have started my own company 

My goal is to create extraordinary products and to introduce modern engineering to people. 

I have come up with several unique ideas which you can check out on my YouTube channel

 About one year ago, I needed to replace my computer so I decided that I can create some of the parts myself. I have hobby CNC machine, and with my aerospace and oil industry background and knowledge in hardware and programming, all of which helped me to come up with several products which together form a line of NUDEcnc Computers. Initially, I have focused on developing Ncore- waterblock and after many up and downs I finally got a working prototype that I am able to introduce to you.

My product is in two versions  

· V1 (no frame, 12s installation) 

Possibile LED options ( plus yellow)

Ncore V1D
Ncore V1D

 Ncore is a CPU waterblock designed for naked die cooling, with unique” in socket” mounting system. Ncore V1 is supporting the LGA1151 socket and it is designed for delidded CPUs only. Ncore V1D can be installed on a delidded and non- delidded CPUs, as it includes an installation bracket, which is also a delidder.

Addition of a frame to Ncore V1 (Ncore V1D) provides some extra features:

  • Delidder- to delid CPU  
  • Mounting bracket which allows to install Ncore in standard fashion, with the IHS.
  • Floating fixture – to evenly distribute stresses
  • Additional support for the socket for non-belivers 

I designed, manufactured and tested The Ncore. Initial tests have proven Ncore’s superiority over other designs available on the market  

Up tp 10% to best delidded solution (re-DELIDDED CPU - liquid metal TIM - IHS - waterblock)  

Up to 38% to non- delidded (non-DELIDDED CPU - IHS - waterblock)

I took a risk and sent first prototypes to these 4-noble people for an independent review. What they received was only one of many first versions the Ncore. Since then I have made an important alteration of the design-addition of the shimming plate and completely flat base of the Ncore.

Designed for delidded CPU! It is all about delidding- it is worth it! 

I designed the cooling surface of the Ncore to cool the CPU die specifically, not the IHS like the competition. This forced me to come up with a completely redesigned cooling chamber.

All modern CPUs are trapped behind a wall of metal (IHS), what is probably the biggest flaw in their design. By integrating the IHS with the Ncore’s, water is enabled to flow 20x closer to the CPU, when compared to other systems available on the market. It provides same protection of the CPU die as the IHS after installing standard option waterblock.  

The thickness of the isolator (which is IHS) is inversely proportional to the thermal conductivity; it is like in your house over the winter- the thinner the walls the colder inside

Each custom water-cooling system is unique, after all it is custom. As miniaturization is the key to modern engineering, I have designed the Ncore, to not only perform great powered by high flow systems D5 pump, but to be adjusted and used in a low flow pressure system. For the first time you will be able to adapt waterblock to your system set up.

Waterflow through the Ncore

Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) I was able to achieve a great performance of the Ncore with minimal waterflow resistance (which can be adjusted anyway).

As ΔT ( ΔT= CPU temp - coolant temp) in a delidded CPU is much lower, Ncore V1 can run with smaller (cheaper) pump and up to 3x (vs non delidded) smaller radiator. This is a great solution for small (ITX) builds and significantly cheaper.  

As ΔT is lower, you can run much hotter coolant. Increasing the coolants temperature in the same environment improves greatly the radiators performance. This allows it to run the same system with lower fan RPM.

If you are not convinced with unique “no frame” solution of the V1, this is additional Ncore's support option.

All waterblocks on the market use 4 screws standard installation bracket, however to eliminate uneven stresses on the CPU core many companies use springs. For direct on die Ncore’s installation, it was not enough, its special floating fixture uses hinge concept to eliminate stresses.

The installation process of the Ncore V1 is one of my biggest achievements and I am very proud of it. 

Ncore V1 uses the LGA socket as its installation bracket. There is no need for any extra frames or screws.

I believe that best design must be unique and innovative, that’s why I've decided to try and make delidding convenient for you, so the delidder is incorporated into the design of the Ncore V1D frame.

 

To prevent leaking, improve durability, strength, overall structural integrity and appearance of the Ncore, it has a brass top, and a metal ¼ inlet- outlet connectors.

The biggest risk in PC water-cooling is leakage. I decided to use one of the best rubber compound (Viton- FKM Rubber ) available in XXI century, developed by DuPont Performance Elastomers, taken from an Aerospace, F1 an Oil industry- a Viton® or FKM rubber.

If you are an overclocking enthusiast or a gamer who wants to improve the performance of your computer. 

That is a product for YOU!

 
 
 
 
Why do I need your help? 
Why should you back this project even if you are not an overclocking enthusiast?

The goal of my campaign is to gather the money to buy an professional grade CNC machine which will enable me, not only to deliver the Ncore, but many more of my projects to you. 

So If you happy to support me please pledge every £ counts!!!!

Please help me fulfill mine and your dreams…

      
   

Risks and challenges

Ncore adjustments: Every single day I am thinking about how to improve my design, I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night with a new idea. So, one thing that I can definitely guarantee changes to the Ncore's design. These will always be for the benefit of you, and I will let you know exactly how and why any are made.
If you have any advice, question or concern please do not hesitate to contact me here on Kickstarter, on my website or via social media!
