Single vs. dual pass radiators - "Cross-flow" - Page 4

post #31 of 35
first: sorry for the minor necro

I have a build in mind where the use of a x-flow rad would simplify loop routing a lot (not to say looks biggrin.gif )

I fully expect performance of the GTS x-flow to be a handfull of % points below the "regular" GTS; but it wouldn't matter that much for this build as it is not its goal to get within 0.5 °C ambient smile.gif

Nevertheless, it would be nice to see some data, provided by someone who has a proven track record of doing & providing consistent tests & results...

So, if Martin is willing to do the tests, i'm willing to spring the money for a GTS 360 and its x-flow counterpart

Im confused, if the radiator flow passes acros the back and front, then wouldn't the water inlet and outlet need to be on oposite sides of the radiator (back and front as well)?



but the GTX radiator has the outlets on the same side in this pic below, and if its split the way you say, how can it possibly have the outlets on the same side?

I believe there is a plate in the front tank separating the 2 "sides". The outlet is connected to this 2nd half through this plate.
