My System Specs

Default

It's interesting to say the least, but I'd think the same as the post above WRT the lack of either fins or channels.

That said... the benefits IMO wouldn't outweigh the risks invovled with using the non-machined surface of a processor as 1/2 of the seal in a water loop. Are there folks who'll take that risk? Probably, just as some folks were willing to run brand new extreme procs "naked" by removing the lid, some folks would probably try this just for the coolness factor (and yeah... I think it's pretty cool.... :) ).
