    what are your thoughts on milling a GPU block from aluminum then having it anodized?
    does anyone know if this will effect thermal transfer too much?
    has it been done before?

    Forget about using aluminum in your cooling system. I tried to do this a few years ago and was pointed in the right direction. It's all got to do with corrosion etc. Stick to copper for the bottoms
    (or the whole block) and use a machining plastic for the tops.

    okay, im looking at making the block black regardless of the chosen material
    and i want it to have a clear top so you can see of the white coolant snaking it way though the block
    would this be a good application for anodizing?
    or should i just rattle can it? :lol:
