You could always do something crazy, like mount the new big radiator on your wall, and mount the smaller radiator to your case. Wire them in parallel with quick disconnects on the big radiator.


Massive cooling capacity, and portability when you want it biggrin.gif

If you do a ebay search under "heat exchanger copper" you're likely to find one. I used to have a liquid cooling system with a huge Lytron copper heat exchanger on it and that's how I found it wink.gif

Those are nice looking radiators. I wasn't so much surprised that Rhaziell found a copper heat exchanger, what I found surprising was the he found an automotive one. Copper is kind of heavy.

It probably has brass pipes instead of copper inside, just look for the picture where I scratched off the paint - below it its a metallic material with only slightly copper-like glitter. I thought this was just tin plated copper, but now I have doubts. Radiator it's really heavy, about 7/7.5 kg.

I'm currently looking for a new case, one that would be big enough to hold the bigger rad on it's side, either vertically or horizontally, something that would fit best. :)

 

The new rad dimensions are: 65x43x2.4 cm.

Any help will be appreciated.

I love the modding you've done- in my mind this is the spirit of watercooling!

Subbed, looking forward to see how it goes when you get back.

Talk about dissapation surface lol! Yeah, the radiator is probably a brass one. Pure copper has poor integrity compared to aluminium and brass, which means you need thicker walled tubes if you want to braze fins to them. It might be copper fins, brazed to aluminium or brass tubes though. Seeing the price of copper nowadays is $3+ per pound, you must have paid tons of dough for that radiator if it was a pure copper one. It would also be heavier than 7.45kg. Scratch off the end tanks a little and compare colors with brass. Copper is much more of a red, dark tone compared to brass. After all, brass is just a copper/zink alloy.

Then you have yellow brass, red brass, aluminium brass, cartidge brass, cutting brass, the list goes on. Yellow brass is most used in heat exchangers since it's lower copper than red brass = lower price.
