    The only reason a vehicle uses a resevior is for the expansion/contraction of fluid as well as adding coolant to the system. THAT IS IT.
    It is also a VERY small fraction of the total amount of coolant running in the system.
    The transfer of heat if PURELY and solely done by the radiator. The better/larger the radiator, as well as the air (cfm) blowing through radiator determines the cooling effeciency. As well as other minor things like ambient temps and the such.

    So larger is better, only in the aspect of the radiator size. The addition or subtraction of a res. will not affect any type of cooling properties. Especially on a constant run system. On a system that is shut of and turned on it would only make a difference in getting the coolant to the same all around temp., that is it.

    This is from a scientific, automotive backround perspective. I haven't read into CPU cooling, so I haven't been jaded in that light.
    Science won't change though, nor will the properties of heating/cooling, expansion/contraction, convection, ect.
    They haven't changed in the automobile in the last 50+ years........

    Just my 2 cents.

    Nicely put Chezman, but I don't think it will convince Wiggo.

    "more = better" I think you are confusing beer with watercooling

    works well for me also but if ya put a good liquid system cooled together 1st try it with 1L of liquid then increase the capacity to 3-4L and I'll bet ya that that larger amount of liquid gives ya a better result. :cheers:

    Sorry Wiggo, but you are simply wrong about the amount of coolant. I put a new more powerful engine in my '65 GTO, and the old radiator was not efficient enought to cool it properly. So, I installed a new more efficient aluminum radiator, which by the way actually makes the system hold less coolant than before, and lo and behold it cools the new motor just fine.

    I really think that ya's are missin' the point. Get the best setup that ya can find and start off usin' 0.5-1L and then expand the capacity to 2-3L and I guarantee that ya'd get better results.
