    many moons ago I made an all copper water block for my 8800 ultra, this was when the ultra was old and could be picked up for 70 or so not 500+ new.

    it failed fantastically. i was only 16 or so.

    but now I've come back to making a water block and I think I've done excellent!

    just needs to be tested now!

    the patter was made using a .2mm 45 engraving bit.

    and John, how did your water block come out?
