this question is not related to any projects past, present or future, it's just for general knowledge...

how well would this work and is it possible?
CPU >>>Copper plate (3mm) >> water block >>Heat sink and fan with cooling of water being supplied by external cooling....

there is an article here about that in the watercooling section. First, why have the cold plate. Second, the HSF should not matter too much if you have a good radiator and a sufficient flow rate through the block. Would also be a lot for the socket lugs to handle, they are only rated to 300 grams for the 462, not sure about a 370.

Ok... I've done a bit more reading since this post and yes the cold plate isn't neccessary unless a peltier was being used and since no pelt is being used it could be scraped.
The HSF is the for aditional cooling, I'm just looking at ways of pulling more heat out of the waterblock.
Which brings me to the question what would a waterblock and say a Alpha6035 weigh?
Or alternately how about a taller waterblock made from copper with fins in it and fan on top.
since the waterblock would make up the base the only addition weight would be the fins and the fan...
