    Unless some one's prepared to dismantle a block to take the measurements the easiest way to find out is to contact EK. They've always responded pretty quickly to my queries.

    IMHO exact size doesn't really matter. if You want to make own FC block better take look at own tools and equipment. what size of fins could You produce? fins typically 0.8-1.2 mm thick, same for spacing, 3-5 mm height. most vendors have to find compromise between cost of production and performance. and due to that fin's size is more about cost than performance

    Yeah, but is thinking that the flow will be worse, but more surface to transfer the heat .... Vill look at the different block on the marked, maybe some older ones ...

    Found a 2mm mill at work, that can cut 4mm down - Maybe it could make a decent result :)

    Well company usually don't let own designs away. Take caliper and measure down all you need.

    seems to be to find a good balance between increasing surface area of copper without killing flow...
