Why does everyone say the bonneville for car radiators? . . are there any larger one that could cool better? . . . i have a 240x240mm space to work with sooo . .<br><br>
or coule i get two and have the outlet of one go into the inlet of the other . . .im only cooling my CPU . .for now.

the bonneville will probably cool your processor to almost ambient if that's all your using...as long as you use good components.<br><br>
They recommend it, because it's good, it's common, and it's cheap.

1 single heater core is plenty for a cpu..I wouldn't hook one in front of another like that, you would be drawing hot air from the first into the second...Here's a Danger Den single, dont know if it's a Bonneville or not but it fit's your space requirments....<a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=47&cat=14&page=1" target="_blank">Danger Den :: Radiators :: Heater Core Radiators :: Standard Heater Core with Fittings</a>

</div>the two rads would be side by side so no hot air would be exchanged . . . they would be next to each other.

</div>I think Dryadsoul has two in one system. The Heatercores are bigger than 120mm so if you only have exactaly 240mm two won't fit.

Oh yeah side by side would be fine..If you can use a double heatercore and just lay it on it's side would be best, fewer fitting's = less restriction...

If you have the room there is always <a href="http://www.voyeurmods.com/index.php?action=item&id=1701&prevaction=category&previd=2&prevstart=0" target="_blank">THIS</a> Monster! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
One single Bonneville HC will do you fine.

</div>I'm running two Bonnies stacked/serial with 4 Panaflow 120x38mm 115CFM fans in push/pull @ 7volts and a D5 pump. And it would be overkill if they weren't on top my vertical flow A/C, but the extra chill time lowers water temps by 2-4ºC. <br />
Every degree counts when you can't afford a phase unit. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I'm running two heater cores for my TEC setup and it works perfectly cooling almost 500 watts worth of heat.<br />
