    Not sure about using water cooling but with air Intel seems to think just the center needs cooled... Thus the round copper slug on the factory heatsink. Not sure I follow their logic on that but then again most of my important machines are AMD... :p

    I would find a larger chunk of copper, preferably square. It's going to be a lot easier to work with and it would cover the CPU better. (I mentioned this quite some time ago...)

    How are you going to mount this once it's all drilled?
