Thanks for clearing that up. I used it successfully, but there are always better ways. I mainly used it because I already had it at the house already.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't JB Weld be better im my situation considering it's conductive properties, or would it not be adhesive enough?


Got a rad but it's pretty beat up, air tight though.

not to worry, after a good hour & a half, fighting a Ford Probe at a salvage yard, i got a nice heater core, only problem is i broke the nozzle off the top, should be able to fix it. also, i wanted to mount it externaly on the back of my case but it's a little big.

Which situation are you talking about? If you are simply putting nipples that stick out of the holes on your waterblock, I think jb-weld would be adequate. If you run the copper tubing straight through the holes, I suggest using some sort of thermal adhesive.


I really like the project you have so far though!
