Custom WaterBlock for MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti HAWK

Hi guys, I decided to make myself a custom waterblock for my VGA with one friend's CNC, since there are no available waterblocks for the MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti HAWK. The PCB is way different from the standard GTX 560.
I have made a design based on the EK waterblocks, I will attack some images for you to see.
Here's my first idea about it, and a comparison with the standard MSI GTX 560 Ti:

And here are some images about the 3D design I'm working on:

I'm thinking about doing it either in Cooper or Nickel (all depends on costs), and an acrylic cover with screws. My main concern is about the measures and thickness of the piece, specially in the areas where the heat is going to be transferred to the inner cavity where the water flows (there is an image where you can see the measures and this matter).
Also I don't know if everything will work just fine, what about the water pressure, and I don't know if there is something else to take in account when doing this.
If you guys could please give me some advice, I'll really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

I am interested in the same thing as the OP ... the reason being ... I already have the card ... If I can cool it better and get a better OC ... it saves me buying a whole new card ...
