NoAffinity said that it wouldnt work using a fridge with a watercooling system, I beg to differ... lol
And before I embark on my journey to makeing my first waterblock, I just wanted to know..
Does the same idea apply to waterblocks as normal heatsinks, the more surface area there is to cool, the better temps your going to get? If so, I'm going to put a bunch of fins on the inside to the water rushes around them

There is a lot more to waterblocks than surface area. The cooling is really achieved my the surface area of the heatercore. There is so much testing that is involved with flow rates and design that unless you mimic someone elses design, then it is either going to be hit or miss. My suggestion is to base your waterblock loosely on the best performing blocks out there, RBX, TDX, Whitewater.

Edit: spelling
