    Would an all aluminum rad from a dirt bike or 4 wheeler work?

    If it will then I don't have to buy one. It's 10.5x12 has 3/8 fittings and doesn't require much airflow. I don't need it anymore for the 4wheeler(I went with bigger) and I'd like to find a use for it. I have a water block and lines but that's it. I'd like to use a pump from a 75gal fish tank the waterblock and the 4wheeler rad. Should I try it? How much water is needed to keep a processor cool? Should I add anything to the water?

    those will work the best, as they are multi-channel Radiators, you also get nice big inlets and outlets ... almost 1" if I remember correctly....

    go with a pump no less than 100Gph
    remember it's not how much water you are pumping, it's how fast you can circulate the water..

    also you will need some for of ventilation on the Radiator, else it will just retain the heat and you cooling system will just overheat...

    I was thinking 2 80mm fans on the rad. It's gonna be outside the case if I do it.
