Which car radiator to buy?.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking either this Audi 5000
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Copper-Radiator-for-Audi-5000-2-0-2-2-l5-/120866961517?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1c243b786d&vxp=mtr

Or this Audi 4000
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Radiator-Copper-Core-Plastic-Tank-Audi-4000-87-86-85-84-1987-811121251AB-/370752686287?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item56529508cf&vxp=mtr

They are same size 23in x 12x, the difference is the thickness:
5000 is 1.7/8in (48mm)
4000 is 1.1/4 (32mm)

My pump is 320gph (1212 l/h)
Going to 2 full gtx470 GPU blocks. 2500k CPU block. And HDD block. GPU and CPU overclocked very high.
It's also split off into second computer and goes to full GPU block and CPU block.

I'm thinking of upgrading the pump if I have to. I found a 480gph for $50 at petco. But I'm not sure about the radiator.
If 4000 is plenty enough to dissipate heat, I'll get that. I'm just concerned that the 5000 will require much stronger pump then the 480gph and that will cost more for pump and might make more noise.

What you guys think for my setup 32mm good enough or go with 48mm?

And pump GPM is a useless spec. You need to see the pump curve to know how it will perform.

Look for some at Martins website.

Why do you want to use a car radiator? You would probably need an extremely high power fan to get much out of that. I would probably recommend an actual car fan.

I'm also putting the radiator outside my window. Well I ordered the 32mm. I think it will cool plenty and the 48 might require super strong pump.
I think without a fan it should be good enough. Car fans are no problem, I work with cars I have tons of spare's in the garage.
