hey man lookin great, i'm still trying to find copper to build my waterblock. where you cut there will be some gaps between the evap lines and the cooler, maybe you could fill that with expandable foam. possibly the fast expanding stuff, this will greatly increase the insulation and you wont lose any heat. BTW what kind of pump are you using because i really need one but i'm not sure what one to get. possibly a link if its on the internet somewhere.
