"So how can we improve on this design? My idea was more volume of water (as it could be possible it's getting saturated very quickly). Running the water nearer the core might also help. Extra surface area would definetley help, but using artic silver epoxy and a heatsink is more likely to hinder the performance becuase of the inefficiency of transfering from the core to the sink. So, basically I set out to make a slighty larger volume cooler with
water running going STRAIGHT onto the core. Me being the "on the cheap, home made" sorta guy - I went looking around the house."
