@NUDEcnc those results look very promising!

What is the center-to-center distance between the tapped inlet and outlet ports? And will there be a nickel-plated option at some point?

Can someone please explain to me why this is so great apart just from it is cool that it is so small? Waterblock-size have never been the issue even for ITX, have it? The issue is how to make the fittings flat enough for small cases. What is the benefit of making the contact area so small?
because it eliminates the heatspreader from the chip? It has direct contact with the cpu dye. nobody has ever done this before....? What are you on about

Just wondering about the protective coating Intel uses on the finished die and what the assumptions are for it, Na+ ion contamination could be a thing longer term.

Yeah I did get that explained to me already, but thanks anyways. When I read the original article the first time I didnt understand it properly; I didnt understand that the waterblock actually replaced the original heatspreader on the CPU. Thus it looked to me as only a very minimalistic waterblock.
