Default novel heatsink for F5T

i'm planning an F5T next, and trying to make something with a little more WAF,
see below this water filled heat exchanger.
I was thinking of mounting this to a base with the circuitry and transformer in it.
do we think it would have enough cooling capability?
it's available in lengths from 500mm to 1000mm tall, and is 100mm diameter.
a small pump would be needed but i'm hoping a circular base maybe 200mm diameter by 100mm tall should be enough to fit everything in?

What's the typical thermal resistance with a decent block?

I'm not sure, I think I'd have to buy it and see.
The good news is 500mm length is around 30USD going up to 70USd for the 1.1m version.
Do we think it would be up to the job?

Nice. Can you post a dealer link?

Can anyone comment on how much noise the applicable pumps make, advise a manufacturer?

I think, from what little I know of the typical F5T build, you'd want the tallest one.

A shorter heatsink is better in many ways, heatexchange and tipping over.

IŽd try 4x0.5m for a F5t .

A nice wooden base with the 4 sinks mounted on ?
