hmm, this might be something i need to look into, because that might be a really efficient design. with some minor tuning, removing some of the pins, that'd become an excellent block design, it's taken from the Dominator Pro series Peltiers.

yeah, i was figuring taking many out of there, because heat just doesen't pass through many of them. keep in mind that this is designed to sit on top of a pelt, and pelts create heat everywehre, not just where a CPU core sits. therefore, i can omit the outside pins and keep the inside ones...

the dominators designed the block top for those pins..

there are 4 holes, 2 in 2 out
if you omit those pins you will be causeing the water to take a path around the pins and there will be more heat near the pins...

now here's the real question: rounded pins or square ones? i don't know how detailed my uncle can get w/ a milling machine, but if he can CNC it, he can do just about anythign...i'll talk to him about it.

Personally, for the pins, I would say either triangle, or if possible, hexagons.. the hex's would be the best.. most surface area... or would round be better then hexagons?
EDIT*
ALSO! Before you build the block, make sure you know how your going to seal it!!!!!
I've just screwed myself right over with the sealing... nothing wants to work for the pump that I have.. I think the flow rate is just destroying it... lol
I think the best bet, would be to have your uncle milling in a circular groove around the whole area that the water flows through, that you could put a big O-ring in, like the DD blocks.

ok, i'll metion that to him...thanks. i think i'm going to use silicone, but i'll ask him to machine in a shallow groove for it to sit in, just so that the silicone has a place to sit, nice and sealed. thanks again.

ATVkid, If you really want an amazing performing block, check into the Storm/G4 by little river waterblocks... I was in another forum (located near me) who are really into watercooling. They all say that its one of the best, and cheapest waterblocks around.
I think it looks amazing, and Its all done by a few guys in ontario, so they can't ship anyout due to backorders.
Get a few pictures, draw up a design, and send that to your uncle... that would be amazing... lol

oh yeah, i was slightly concerned with the non-machined in part of the left side of the waterblock, it should look like a DD RBX's barbs, with 2 on the outside and 1 flowing right over the pins... now, should i do a RBX's barb setup with those pins in there, following roughly what the G4 looks like?
