It is easier but the cheap ones, well their cheap and they don't water cool as good. As of what warriorscot said, I have to agree the only parts that are metal should be the heatsinks and the copper radiator pipes. My dad is really good with, umm basically everything as he is a handyman, he explained to me that when the pressure of the water is reduced the water gets colder, therefore if you get thinner pipes and make more wave like patters, then add an adapter to the end to change it back 1/2" then you just made yourself a very good radiator, not to mention if you add fans, even better.

Its not the effectiveness that's the problem its the reliability its the most likely place for a leak to occur in any system and a home made water block only increases that possibility, also the metal purity and finish is different making it a less effective conductor of heat.
