And ironically i'm going to end up right back at the start with an optimized version of my original block. I can see

hey it looks like the last one starts to lower temps slightly in the outter channels

how would it react to a higher density of cutouts? like putting them at shorter distances relative to eachother?

EDIT: also noticed how at the center inlet, the channel wall is lower... now, youve been doing that for a while, but it just struck me that that's the coolest spot on the entire block, apart from the mounting edges. now... what if you lowered the channel's inner walls a little, allowing water to flow over them a little bit... just a mm, maybe 2.. it could be just because thats where the water is jetted down, but it may be worth testing.

also... you said you didnt put the cutouts on the entire block, because thats a lot of work... i just have to say im not 100% sure if that gives accurate results... since the inner parts of the block have seemed to behave differently than the outter parts. up to you if you think its worth to dig into... just mentioning it.

the one with the raindrop shaped cutouts is the least restrictive? even less so than the smooth channels? didnt expect that to be honest.

Center is coolest cos of the water coming in from the top and hitting the base at speed. Those cut downs aren't optimized i still need to work on them . i'm definitely better of with having something under the inlet that nothing at all which is how my original block was made.. i haven't actually tested them at full height. i just presumed that would create to much back pressure.


Letting the water flow over the channel would be a disaster as the water will take the path of least resistance which is straight between the inlet and out let by passing the channels.. I've tested this one one of the blocks i've posted here

Um no the rain drop has a higher back pressure than the last one i did


I still need to do a control block, one without any cut out s to see if there's any merit to having the cut outs



After stuffing around with other designs im going back to the original design and trying to optimize it

Looks pretty decent to me, of course I don't know that much about block making (yet).

Yeah oops I forgot to specify, what I meant was they all look good. However the most recent one looks pretty decent.
