Radiator question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am currently in the process of overhauling my PC. I am going to be going with an MCP655 with an Apoggee. The tubing and parts are going to be all 1/2 inch ID tubing. Here is my question, do you think using this radiator:

Will this work with the 1/2" equipment. It is 3/8", and I will need to use plastic fittings. I am pretty sure it will work fine, but I don't know if my systems cooling performance will be compromised. I just want to know what you guys would do, use the old radiator, or invest in a less constricting one. Thanks!

P.S I have a dual heatercore, but I don't think I will be using it, I am going to try and fit everything in the case

You would need to put 3/8 tubing on the rad, then a fitting to raise it to 1/2". I would go for 1 already set for 1/2". Your heater core will outperform just about any premade rad.
