Looking at the image again, I see there is no separate radiator.

As diagramed in the first post, I am 100% certain such a setup will cool significantly worse, than the plain heatsink.

Also, that sandy coating is the sintering that allows heatpipes to work in orientations other than vertical.

I can't believe I found this thread?! This crossed my mind before when I was looking at my Freezer 7 Pro, but as I have never water cooled or seen a water cooled system before and know next to nothing about them, I figured there was a reason nobody has done it yet. Plus I would have just wasted the $36 I spend on it.

However, you all seem to think it will work. My 2 cents

Removing the "stuff?" -Try gently removing all of the aluminum fins if you haven't already and heating up the pipes with a torch. Start with the end where you can see what's going on and if it's working.

Solving the leak issue. -Use a pipe flaring tool to flare the tubing and give something for the hose to bite onto behind the clamp. You would have to leave a few heat spreader fins off to flare it though.

You should also be able to bend the tubing with the right size spring.
