Since we are talking fluid cooling, anybody putting a heatsink on both
sides of the chip?

I would not worry too much about the water side, pressure and flow can work
wonders there, but would keep the copper plate just thick enough to avoid
hot spots and cover as much of the chip surface as electrically possible.
