Were could I go to get cheap used Radiators or something? Cause I need to build this AC unit QUICK, or I will defiantly melt, with my computer.

radiator for your homemade ac, or you mean heatercores for a WC setup? heatercores you can get from autozone/checker/napa or go to a rad shop, they might be cheaper if you get a remanned one instead of brand new.

if you want a big radiator from a car for your homemade ac unit go to a junkyard and pull one yourself.
