Help with finding a solution

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have read some where around here that a 120 rad is good for 150watts and a 240 rad is good for 300watts. So what is a 140 and 180 rad good for?

and does thing change with the rad being 30 or 60mm thick?

I am trying to find some sort of actual test page or something showing actual figures. So I can make an informed decision on what I want when I change from my H60.

Also a side question is I have been finding that a loop will lose fluid and need cleaning, why is this so when the Hydro series don't have any means of doing this?

The heat disipation capacity of a radiator depends on a number of factors, like, temperature difference, airflow, etc..

Martin has an estimator spreadsheet that can help with determining how much radiator you need for your desired operating conditions.

The sealed unit coolers don't require loop maintenance because they are factory sealed in a clean environment, use a coolant mixture that includes glycol, and possibly other corrosion inhibitors and biocides.
They also use non permeable tubing that has very little or no plasticizers in it.

thank you a heap, but the link is not working!!!! Why use glycol? I thought that will stop it from boiling or freezing which I hope the loop would never do. From my line of work I can get some awesome corrosion inhibitors, wonderful biocides and even water sterilizer (basically it will kill and neutralize tap water).

I guess what the point is that if you make the loop with an absolute clean beginning then maintenance will be a thing of the past, right?
