It probably is a condenser. It is the same design as an oil radiator though. Both are designed for high deltas, higher pressures, and lower flowrates. None which apply to PC cooling.

You just didn't know something basic about water cooling, thats all, but now you do! You went the air cooling route and probably know basic things about it that I don't know.

hate to be condescending but if you are gonna be like that i dont mind

its a condenser from an AC unit. not in watercooling. not every cooling unit is for a computer, ya know

it condenses refrigerant. LOL! water doesn't go through that, although i suppose you could mod it for that but you would need some large fans or airflow to dissipate heat, and a really powerful pump

so it can be used as a rad, its not a rad

aren't they in essence the same thing? both are used to dissipate heat as their main goal and as a side product when getting rid of heat on an AC system it turns the gas into a liquid. either way they are heat exchangers. also unlike most that you see for water cooling or car cooling this isn't a plate style but rather tubed. I do know you see a lot of these on oil cooling units for cars be it transmission oil or engine oil. there is no condensating there so would you care to explain the differences a little moer in depth?

Well, in my first post, I was suggesting that one could use that for water cooling [maybe] and that it would be pretty neato, but I guess I wasn't too clear.

But yes, I am a "ZOMG ROFLCOPTER ****ING NOOB"

BTW sigged.

I wasn't sure if he was talking to me or you ^_^.

Not a newbish question at all, you did not state that you thought it came from a computer. I think he just read the post too quickly or something.

Yes it is a condenser sorry if i didn't state that in the original post. It came from the front of a wall air conditioning unit probably about 10000 btu or sumthin like that.

So using one about half that size would still be ineffective for my idea of using it for a rad?
I do know that inorder to run the liquid through it would require a massive pump, i just wanted to know if it was possible to dissipate the heat as efficiently those heater cores i've heard so much good reviews about.

Guys,

Listen to DuckieHo. He`s got it right. There are different styles and designs for many applications of heat transfer. Make sure you use the correct one for the methods and materials you are using.

As I mentioned above twice already.... what you have is no good for PC watercooling. Read above for the reasons. Basically, it is one big thick pipe through fins.... for PC cooling, you want many thin pipes through fins.
