And then with the fuZion, add heatsinks to the sides, hence this thread

My bad....I see what your saying now, kind of a ancillary cooling on the base, not a HSF immersion...Kind of like the new DFI mobo ancillary cooler...Man I don't know, you can always try it and see, I bet it would be a pain to make..

The only problem is if your radiator is in a really good spot, chances are you could be heating the block with the HSF added on there.

Thermal conductivity:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_conductivity

Water = .6W/(m*K)
Air = .025W/(m*K)

.6/.025 = 24X

So Water has 24X the thermal conductivity of Air.

Specific Heat
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specific_heat_capacity

Air = 0.001297 J cm-3 K-1
Water = 4.184 J cm-3 K-1

4.184/.001297 = 3,225

So water has over 3,000 times the specific heat capacity (ability to store energy/heat).

Bottom line, water is incredibly better at transferring and removing heat than heatpipes. Heatpipes are much better at transferring heat than solid metals, but not better than water. To incorporate a design to include heatpipes, you would need a really thick base, and that thick base would hurt the ability of a water block to quickly transfer heat to the water.

Some thickness is good to distribute heat, but you'll find that most waterblocks are somewhere between .050" and .125" in thickness and that's because water is really really good at transferring heat and storing it.

When I first started water cooling I always thought why someone doesn't make a huge tower like waterblock with a huge surface area. The reason is the thermal property difference between water and air, they are just soo different.

My 2c anyhow...

You could always try it. I've had a few strange ideas I tried...always fun to give it a try even if it doesn't pan out..

Looks interesting but seems as martin pointed out to not be as effective as just using coper pins and water. Water blocks are pretty effective at removing heat from a CPU. The thing that needs the most optimizing is probably the radiator.

Never hurts to try it, I especially like seeing people build new things that were never tried before. Imagine the first guy that tried water cooling his PC...that crazy fool!...lol!

This sort of stuff is always alot more educational and fun to read through than fitting bolt on parts anyhow..

One of these days I'll get back to my CPU block building project, but like this it'll have to be something a little different just for fun..
