These points will be discovered during next weeks of work, I had not enogh time to build and also check the system performance.
At the moment I just know that in IDLE the temperatures dropped down from 38/42°C (~104°F)
to 24/27°C (~77°F)
and thats really impressive for a simple system like that, but in the next days I will check for other info like noise
(just from the fans, the pump is really silent), temperatures
and possible problems
The system survived to 10hours of 100% full CPU, and everything was fine: no leaks
or any type of problem.

Thanks for the advice, and don't worry, I double checked before building the entire system, and the RAD ia actually made in alluminium, is an old type of radiator, not made out of copper
I was aware about this particular problem, and hopefuly I managed to avoid it.
