Any thoughts on this waterblock concept?

Hi, So I signed up for this competition for my school where I had to design a product and I thought it would be a fun project to make a DIY CPU waterblock for my PC, designed to look really sleek and modern. Here's my idea for how it would look came up with by using solid works and then importing the files to blender. Do you guys have any thoughts on this design? I really want this to get machined and I'm super excited to see how it would look like with the RGB lighting.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post!

Looks great. Engineer probably tell you you should have more than 4 screws for the top, but nice and clean design.

It certainly looks great. Good job!



I am not familiar with fluid dynamics, but wouldn't you want to either extend the fins or otherwise minimise the gap between the top and the fins? I imagine then you'd have better and more uniform flow.

I would be afraid of the top cracking with the screws so close to the edge of the acrylic.

Otherwise it looks pretty cool.
