dont ya normaly want the inlines to be in the center (colder water) becuase the cpu is hotter in the center and outlines around the edge of the block...

it doesent really matter, as the water is passing over the core, i would be concentrating more on the temp of the water going IN, than making sure the water hits the core first.

looks like a good design liss, are you planning on splitting the lines before they enter the block, using two pumps, or looping outlet #1 to outlet# 2?

In this design, I don't think having the Inlet in the center matters too much. Have you thought about the 2 channels combining at the center area, then returning to seperate channels for the outlets?

Looks pukka. that's english for good. Applying a bit of physics, it looks like the design will cause a pressure drop around the centre of the block (good) and allow a high flow (good) whilst the copper will be thinnest around the centre between the two channels, allowing for more heat to be taken away from the core - good too. And it's curved for a bonus too, no right angles to slow the flow. Good good good as far as I can see. :)

The water is entering at a narrower channel than when it reaches the area over the core. Velocity at the channel wall directly in the middle will be reduced because of this. Increase the copper area that divides each inlet and outlet is my suggestion. Then make narrow channels to the inlet and outlet of opposing sides to increase channel wall surface area around the perimeter of the die area.
Would you consider this? Caution paint skillz:D

i'm thinking about screwing this whole design and just making a open type block.. much more easier.. wut do you think? is this design work the trouble? would it give better temps then an open block (similair to swiftech)
