if you've done it right then you should simply use a rubber seal like, once again, every other water block uses.

There is this stuff (sorry dont know the name) that I'm sure you could get at your local pet shop that has aquariums, pumps and things for fish and crap....it's a gel-like substance that comes in a tube thats made to put on the edges and corners of aquariums to seal them from leaks...it comes out a gel and then kind of solidifies...not like JB Weld solidifies as it's still kind of rubbery but it makes the seal.

glare isn't a problem compared to how blurry it is...I can't even tell how you've carved out the center of the block....are you just going for a nonimpingement block?

ive just drilled it out with a drill press and cleaned it up a bit with a dremel as i dont have access to milling machine, i think it should work ok tho,the block itsels is 24mm in depthand ive taken around 19mm out,ill try to get some better pics uploaded later

still didn't tell me if you were planning on making it impingement or not...I'm gonna guess no since it looks like you're simply going to have a barb on the left and right side and let it flow through......if you were going for impingement you'd have the barb in the middle over the center of the CPU.

yeah, that's the common nonimpingement style...muchlike the DangerDen Maze4 CPU block except of course the way the channels are grooved, but yeah without a mill of course you're going to be limited
