yeah thats what i meant. the increased turbulence should help a lot.

It will increase the surface area nicely too.

I think it just makes pockets. Look at the picture and try to imagine how much stagnet water that design will make. I think the straightaways with the walls barely drilled into with small diameter drill bits will work, but the ones with grooves cut real deep will probably just trap water, lets not even talk about the holes drilled into corners

Well thanks guys for your input

I tired a channel like this where the channels width constantly changes but mine was more Zig Zagy than this pic and it was a complete failure

Sure it increases the turbulence and increases the surface area But like Herc130 said the pockets just end up with dead water in them which significantly decreases the overall performance

Actually the block pictured below is wrong on so may areas. not that this is the place to talk about that




i think id need to make a perfect constant width zig zag and that would work well

Solid Works and Solid Cam .. they're the BEST by far i've used ! even though they crash all the time and aren't compatible with ATI cards ( though it seems like no CAD/M is compatible with ATI)

Mill is a wmd 20 . or it used to be along time ago before i modded it. ehhe i over clocked my milling machine !

One thing i will say about all this testing is that the numbers aren't that consistent between restarts . it's all very interesting though

how this and the next set of picks i find very interesting / annoying the only difference between them is the out side radius of the corners

i would have thought the fist set would have resulted in better temps but i was wrong
