That said...there can never been too much data. Maybe even compare blocks test for test and give them */10 for each test (compared to the other blocks), but use #1 as the basis for your conclusions.
It's definitely relevant if Block A offers the best cooling of the bunch, but only at X flowrate, and I think people would like to know that figure as well.
And above all else, thank you so much for doing this test for the community. It really moves things forward.
Haha well I have to finish it first! I'll definitely present all the data so that can people can make their conclusions. I'd actually been thinking about a score system to generally help people process the data so it's funny you mentioned it. Maybe something like this with A/B/C grades based on:
Part 1: Average Core to Water vs Flow
Part 2: Restriction (or reallyl the lack of it)
Part 3: Core to core variation
Part 4: Mount/Compatability (Fitting & Sockets)
Then using that as a guide people can then dig into what's important to them?
The problem with a fixed pump setting is that I only have one data point so it's more subject to error than looking at the numbers across the entire flow
Well I guess I have to finish up the rest of the blocks before I *really* have to make any decisions lol
