Thick radiators make very little difference in cooling. It is the surface arera whichare exposed to the fans that is important. Another words area is more crucial than volume. Of course if the radiator is too narrow flow could be obstructed.
And thick radiators increase fin surface area and allow for more pipes... Thick radiator = better cooling as long as you don't give up fin density to do it.
Also, pleaaaaase put multiple quotes and responses in one post. 7 posts in a row is bad.
