Yes, I remember some company doing a modular radiator as well.

I think each modular part was a 120mm rad that you could connect to other 120mm ones.

Don't know if it was Feser or not.

Yes, Feser was doing modular stuff but in the end dropped everything so Thermalfins could do their own thing.

Not quite. TFC is actually continues to work on Admirals that are rumored to appear in a month or so.

For the price and the "modular" design I would have loved to see:

+ Expandable 120mm or 140mm triple core segments (from 120/140 -> 480/560 config options).
EDIT: Nice! looks as though 120mm/140mm segments can be attached in serial.

+ Expandable 120mm or 140mm fans that have a modular wiring harness. Snap in fans for either push / pull or push&pull config without messy wires.

The fan option though would have been totally sweet.

Updates concerning technical details and similarity with other rads:

I can tell you, that there is no influence of any other product or manufacturer. We are not using designs of any other company.

In our forum we gave the first information including the use of Delrin parts, the "Lego" modularity system, no soldering etc. at January the 9th of this year (http://forum.aquacomputer.de/wasserk-hlung/p1341237-welche-radi-abmessungen-gew-nscht/?highlight=lego#post1341237).

We also have send applications for utility models to the german patent office before this date.

This first information (Delrin, modular system, no soldering, completely decomposable, CNC build) was given on january the 9th. On january the 11th another company (you know) released information about a radiator in a very hasty way and a great video presentation smile.gif I know how it feels if you work on a product and another company is writing an announcement for a new product in the same product range.....

Our radiators was ready before christmas last year, but we have to make long term tests before we can sell a new product and we don't like to give ideas to other companys without having them protected by patent. Also we are doing the complete production process in our halls. So we had to build many tools for production. What I will say with this again: We have done the ams design without any influence from any other product or company. The only help I got from the 2 year old child Luca, the sone of Dino, as I was playing Lego with him smile.gif

Now you can check the timeline of design presentations on your own.

Regarding the use of round tubes and the fin structure:
We have used square tubes at the revolution and other radiators. The first ams prototype (we will maybe show pictures) was using this design. It's no problem to use square fins in a modular design.
The problem at this design is the use of solder between fins and tubes. The solder has a very poor heat conduction and due the bad look of discoloration of soldered surfaces and heat influence on the fins we would have to paint the fins. This will result in the next reduction in performance.

At the ams we are now forming the tube in a very special way to get fully in contact with the fins without soldering. In this forming process the tube also gets a special internal turbulent structure which improves the performance. We are using 21 tubes with a very small distance between the tubes and special fins.

Another question was about corrugated fins:
We have also corrugated fins available for the ams and we have certainly tested them. We are not selling them at the release as the fins we are using are performing better with the air-flow normal users are using. Remember that most radiator finns are optimized for usage in cars and the airflow and airpressure is much higher in this application.

Be sure that we will deliver a high performance product that has been tested against the rest of the industry before it went in the production process. We are doing our very best to find out the best performance. I think we have proved this with the kryos and other designs.

Thanks again for the praise. It's very nice to read your posts after a long time of developing smile.gif
