Copper Cooling Blocks

Two copper water blocks were constructed, one for the processor and one for the chipset.  The cooling blocks were assembled from 2 x copper bar.  Inside each block a serpentine channel was drilled to allow for maximum cooling.  copper pipe was soldered to holes drilled into the copper block for external connections.  Copper pipefittings and poly tubing was used for fluid interconnections. Both cooling blocks were pressure tested to 40 psi to assure there was no leakage.  Photos of the water blocks are shown below.
