If that's the case, why does the innovatek perform so well then? Even with the ribs for increased surface area, it's still a rather large hunk of copper. In the same vein, why do the best aircoolers have thick baseplates as well?
Also, there would be significantly more flow with the wider channels and 1/2" barbs.

maybe I should have posted this somewhere else since this is a theory thread. I'm going for a producible block, not a theoretical masterpiece which is impossible to construct. Oh well.
