the "floating" blue part is glued to the red one

EDIT: forgot top-pic
Looks great ... however, the dead space on the opposite edges that don't have an outlet barb will have less cooling ability. It would be better to put 4 outlets for this design for maximum cooling.

That would make a good TEC Block if it had 4 barbs

that would simply come down to drilling 2 more holes in the red plate.
but it might just shave off another C.

Your hole sizes are wrong.... your inlet and outlet flow rates don't come close to matching and that may drop performance. Basically your design is the same as a D-Tek FuZion.
Once again...

yup like CrazyJoe said, dead space there will gather heat and maybe form some mini wirlpools.
The flow wont be circulating like you think it is.

Hey Joe, seems like a Deja vu thread, dont it?

and we went over 4 barb outlets in the other thread, they will just take up too kich space on the top of the block, unless you want smaller than 1/2Inch ID tubing.
What you could do is angle the barbs out of there.

i'll play around with those thigns in mind later. GRAW 2 almost finished installing

This would make for a good TEC Block but for CPU blocks jets are the way to go

true, but how many people actually use TECs? IMHO it would be better to have it "TEC-compatible", but optimized for normal use. maybe make a TEC-variant, or even start from scratch designing a seperate TEC-block.
Whereas a normal CPU block would benefit more from an X-design like here, a TEC block needs to fully cover the entire TEC. it also has to deal with a much more heat-energy.

TEC-blocks also CAN be larger than normal blocks, as they are lifted higher from the socket due to the coldplate and TEC-unit. this will allow them to be positioned over the voltageregulators and such, without touching them.

TEC should never be over VRM. The no-go zone for Intel is 72mm. Common TECs are 50x50mm and most waterblocks are around the same size. TEC of the 437w variety do come in 62x62mm.

then the P5B-DLX has some parts within that zone.

or are those lower than the socket?

and isnt the 72mm just the distance between the mounting holes?

anyway, the one i posted a earlier is exactly within the white lines drawn on the mobo.
the next one as well. its not meant for TEC use, and focusses on covering the entire IHS, while pouring the fresh water right over the cores. 4 exit-barbs this time, under which the area is cleared of pins.
