Hey guys, I have a question for you physics or math wizzes. I'm looking at an industrial heat exchanger (radiator). The manufacturer cites that with 2 gpm and ~80 cfm air passing over it's capable of removing ~50 BTU/HR°F ( or ~25 W/°C). If either of those figures doesn't seem to make sense, then I'm not reading the graph right, but if anybody could translate those figures into performance that I could compare with say a Black Ice GT Stealth X-Flow 120.<br />
<br />
How does this radiator seem to compare with the Black Ice GT Stealth X-Flow 120.

Well the flow seems perfect for a D-5 and a good 120. I will see about pulling up a graph for the Black Ice<br />
<br />
BTW the absolute top performing Rad in all test is the PA 120.3 by Thermochill--the specs were determined by Cathar (who designs the Storm series of WBs) using a flow bench and sophisticated software. If you want to be certain of having the best track down one of those somewhere (out of stock at DD and everywhere <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> ) But the PA160 is a close match performing as well as the PA120.2 and it is in stock ATM.

Thanks CD, but I'm looking for a high performer that's approximately 5 X 5 inches. A triple fan rad is simply too big.

Something that small won't give you the temps you want.

To change BTU to a more usable Watt figure multiply BTU x 0.297 to get Watts.....Example BIX 120 is 3134 BTU x 0.297 = 930.798 Watts....

The rad will be one of a pair most likely, the other probably being a black ice X 120, but I can anyone tell me how it'll perform compared to the black ice?<br><br><img alt="" src="http://lytron.com/img/heat-exchanger-M05-050-pic.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><img alt="" src="http://lytron.com/img/HX_OEM_Graph_M05-050.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
more <a href="http://lytron.com/standard/he_oem_pictures.htm" target="_blank">here</a> it's the M05-050.<br><br>
If this is just nutty, please post any recommendations for coolers matching the flow, approximate size, and look of this one.

If you cant go larger than 5x5 then find one thats thicker so its performance is = to a double 120mm radiator. Sorry i cant help with the btu thing..

</div> The rad you have there is known as a condenser type rad and is very restrictive, it would greatly reduce your flow and is not efficient at all....I'm not really understanding your charts either....I've looked around for a rad that would fit your 5x5 spec's and have not found any other than the condenser type...Is there no way you can mod a BIX or BIP to fit in your size requirments? Sorry I can't be of more help.If you let us know what this has to fit into maybe we could help you more, there may be a way around the size restriction...Good Luck...
