hello all,

question, i have a 80mm heatercore aluminum rad thingy
3/8 OD tubing, and a stock waterblock

is it worth it, temp wise and performance wise.

to get a DD TDX block, and upgrade tubin to 1/2OD?

will it make that much of a difference, given that i am not changing my pump?

TDX needs high flow rates to perform, and I doubt that cheaply little pump from that kit has the guts to do it.

That's not to say it wouldn't work... but I doubt you'd see anything spectacular from it.

lol, i agree with yiffy...not only do you need a better radiator, but a better pump, a better block, and a better tube...

so its not worth it in any way

well, the pump is not exceptional by any means,

but it does push about 160gallons/hr, so not thattt smalll,

not 300, but not like 50, so come on!!!!

well, my tubing is short, and i would upgrade to 1/2 od tubing

still, is this pretty much a don't do it situation?
