Thermaltake Aquarius II Water-Cooler Kit

I personally didn't rip the block open but here is a pic off the Tt website showing the water passages inside.

Rather than going with the usual large open water block interior, Tt went with more of a serpentine design.  This increases the pressure at which the water enters and exits.  Just like increased air velocity being just as important as high air flow with a heatsink.

We didn't feel any imperfections to the water-blocks base.  It did unfortunately lack the high luster sheen we have gotten used to seeing.

The what has now become standard orange colored fan casing competes for you attention with all the copper tubing.  A hexagon patterned fan grill keeps wires and fingers out.

  

Water enters a 7mm thick copper tube that weaves in and out of the radiator's copper fins eight times to maximize the convection process.  I'm not even going to attempt to calculate the surface area here.
