i was gonna make a really similar one to ChrioNs block, 1/2 outer channels and 1/8 middle channels. On my mill, 1 turn=1/16in. i got a single turn off and it messed it up, so i had to make it EXACTLY like chrions :p
the only diff is prob the channel depth, and the outer look. i used a 1/4inch copper bar as the base
heres some pics

you see an extra hole... ignore it;) i marked my holes by scraping my caliper on the aluminum, there was lines from milling it down a little....... and yeah..

i cant wait to get the tripple channel thing in the center! my temps are down a bunch! The temps are around the same as the Type-S block, the Type-S was 44c level, this one is jumping between 43 and 45c

So the internal channels are 3/8" wide on the outer sides... they don't look to be circular to me, so how high are they? Have you thought about the flowrate?

True, if it gave you any positive results it would prob be only 1-2 degrees anyway.

Just a thought...

the mill? or the end mill? the mill is the machine, the end mill is the drill bit type thingy. its not just an end mill that gets those nice paths, its the mill, over all it was over $500 for a CHEAP one and some stuff...
