Original first post:
Following on from my past thread where I made this waterblock:

I'm about to get things rolling and test it again, this is a first crude effort at a top before I had my new perspex:

Due to your screw positions it might.

The most likely place a leak will occur is where your thumb is or on the other side.

What did you use to create it? Was it hand made with a dremel?

(sorry i missed the other thread)

Argh, you were right, going to drill some more holes in it and try to get more even pressure over the perspex.

Edit: and yes it was created with a dremel
