waterjackets and radiators...what to choose?



New Member
i just went out and got a little pump for the water cooling system i am planning on building. it is going to cool my 3dfx Voodoo3 3500TV for the time being and later on my celly 533 once i get the chip and the board i need. the other 2 components i need is a waterjacket and a radiator. i was looking @ http://www.2coolcomputer.com for both the waterjacket and the radiator. i think i will get the waterjacket from there for sure because it has 3/8" tubing in it, cooling it about 2C more with 100W of peltiers (see http://www.overclockers.com/articles125/ ) but i am not sure about the radiator. the radiator they have is 4 pass, 3/8" tubing, 5" high, 12 3/4" long, 3/4" thick. however it is $40 and i could probably get something similar like a heat exchanger for the heater in a car. they are about the same size but i think the heat exchanger has a bigger diameter tubing. what do you ppl think?

the heat exchangers in cars got biger tubing, but dont let that stop you, just get a tube expander, the biger tubing meens the water flow more slowly thru the radiator and then can deliver more exess heat.

There are those who think, and those who dream, But I, for one, refuse to choose between the two!
