[Updated]Salvaged radiator question...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was lucky enough to score this evaporator unit intended to be used in an aircraft cooling unit from a friend. My question is - Do you think this could work in a CPU only loop, and with the distance of flow and the width of the tubes what manner of pump would be required for a decent rate?

The dimensions of this thing are 8x7x3 inches and I think I can mount a 180mm on each side.

Thanks,
A Noob to WC who has read a few of the introductory threads.

Should work fine. I looks like copper pipes which is good news. The pipes also look to be reasonably large too, so although the rad will be restrictive it will not be crazily so.

You would probably be looking at running a higher pressure pump, like the MCP35x or 355 w/ custom top, in order to get the most out of it.

Now would you want a 180mm fan or stick some stupid fast 120x38 fans on it? That looks so thick, you would need strong fans.

Precisely 3 inches thick, heh. Which would you predict to be superior?

the 120x38 would offer more static pressure than the 180 and would allow you to turn them down for noise control if needed, the 180 would need to stay at full speed to really push though 3".

Update for those interested.

I had 2 200mm fans in the ol' pile and decided to use those to be economical. The specs say they push 110 CFM, not bad. Lowe's was able to hook me up with the -8 NA fitting to 1/2 inch barb so when the rest of the parts come in I'll be set. (Went with the Swiftech MCP655)

Should be interesting. Post results when you are done.

Don't forget to flush the rad first, there might be some random crud in there.

Haha, yeah it doesn't look sanitary. I'll run in alone on a table for a few days for inspection and cleaning purposes.
