I was walking home and troy saw my MCX4000 that i didnt want to squash in my bag. he said it would make a good w/b. with al lof it's pins, you could seal up the sides and give it a good top, plexi sealed on with 2 holes and add some ends and it might make a good block, it seems to transfer heat well.

yeah you could get it to work, but it would be huge, and would not perform as well as say a maze 3.

They would perform very well if you managed to direct the flor so that all the pins have moving water around them.
If you just seal it up and put an inlet and outlet, you will have at least 1 deadspot of water, which reduces the blocks effeciency in cooling. This is what holds this type of conversion from being as good as "normal2 waterblocks.
