O.M.G....

I wish they had these out when I built my current rig (in a TT900) , with it's huge interior, I could have done some seriously tricked out cooling set-ups with these rads....

Maybe time to dust off my toolbench :)

I've never really gotten into custom loop liquid cooling, but I had to replace the front on my truck recently. The radiator that goes on my F250 can be had for under $200. Even less if you go junkyard diving.

I mean, if you're going to get serious about cooling, GET SERIOUS. :p

I've been looking at those copper/brass ones for old Mustangs.

I was thinking of using a spare transmission cooler I have laying around, but I also have an old Radiator from one of my Cougars, and I have a mark 8 fan and driver that fits the radiator; it's good for ~50kW or so, lol.

Now imagine the price of your truck's radiator if it was all copper. ;)

So I did a little reading up on the copper vs aluminum radiator debate. They don't use copper in vehicles typically because of weight/cost. And we use copper in our PC's because they don't get big enough for weight to really be an issue, plus copper performs better typically in a smaller size. On top of that, it sounds like almost all quality water-blocks are copper based, and mixing a copper block with an aluminum radiator is a bad idea. It started going over my head at that point.

Look up galvanic corrosion.

But it makes more sense why I don't hear of more modders parting out old car parts to cool their PC's. :) I've always wanted to make a case with a box fan as the side panel, but now I like the silence too much to ever go back to the days a Delta fan was "normal".

Aluminum blocks exist but perform worse than copper if other factors are the same.

Galvanic corrosion only comes in to play when the two materials are in direct contact.
Unfortunately some people cling on to their mistaken beliefs you can't have the two in the same loop if they are separate.

If the fluid becomes conductive, it will corrode without contact.

There are additives to prevent that, just like with cars.

Positive and negative ions, requires a power source right?

+1 for AC rads.

Using them for years almost exclusively. And AC is the only company that offers vast selection of x-flow rads.

Yeah considering that Phobya basically ceased to exist I guess they took over their IP. Phobya was always basically a sister of AC so nothing surprising there. One thing I'm not so sure are 200 rads. Considering that 200mm fans sucks completely for pressure I struggle to find sense in them. Yeah 12 FPI rad is not much obstruction, but it's still more than 8FPI of old 120/140 Monsta rads. I guess they can work if case airflow doesn't solely rely on 200mm fans (barely) blowing through rads.


If anyone at AC is reading this - guys please switch to M4 threads instead M3. It makes much more secure mounting in many cases with wider holes. Thanks in advance. ;)

I only used them in my rig (profile pic). They were nearly spotless inside, very small quantities of flux residues/particles. Heck, I could have run them as they were in my loop and then changed the fluid after a year, but I cleaned them anyway with hot water and vinegar.
Really good external finish, and no bent fins from factory.
Also, my Alphacool bayres was also perfect.
My Alphacool CPU waterblock (Eisblock XPX Clear), unfortunately, has a very strange scratch on it from factory, but I didn’t want to spend a week RMAing it... also, I don’t like their bracket design (standoffs have a nut that keeps them from falling if the block is removed, but that nut rubs against that bracket, causing metal shavings to fall).

You cant compare a truck radiator to what's going into a PC.

Wich Monsta rads had 8FPI? Our Monsta rads had always 16 FPI. We are using M3 screws because of another reasn. Easier to use it for Enterprise Solution stuff ;-) But i know what you mean ;-)
