    what do ya think?

    just thought of this design....lots of surface area, and the corners are rounded to reduce turbulance....soo???what do you think

    If the channel starts in the middle it will cool the core more. Otherwise it looks great.

    You should have the inlet tube over/in the center of the block.
    this will have the coolest water right over the core to increase cooling. Yeah and turblence is good but only to an extent. id say slow down the water coming in (square the conors) and lave the last ones rounded to get the warmer water out faster..

    just my 2.cents... (thats canadian money so i may owe you some change)

    Turbulence is good. Also 180 turns really hit the flow rate.

    Your first design is bordering on too complex, the second is going to kill your flow rate.

    I believe it'd be a bad idea to have square or sharp corners anywhere as it will only further restrict the flow and increase the possibility of dead spaces. Having sharp corners is not an efficient way to increase turbulence. Your much better off by having sufficient flow to trigger turubulence or using surface effects.
