    Ok 2 big ones do better than 1 big. But I am still sure that 1 big one is more efficient than 2 small ones (less resistance for the same amount of water)

    fact: If you add a second rad to the setup, the waterflow will decrease.
    fact:the pump will try to rotate at the same speed, but can't due to the friction of the 2nd rad.
    In every situation part of the power consumption is converted to heat because of the friction of the pump. When the resistance for the pump increases, a bigger amount of power will be converted to heat since that energy can't be converted to kinetic energy.

    Off course you don't have to agree, but at least I know its true :)

    Hehe, love the sig there Nosferatu: "Make FPS, not war" :D
    Sorry for being off topic, but that one just caught my attention ;)

    If a radiator restricts the flow of water then ya have the wrong radiator.

    Okay

    1) Do not use radiators, use heatercores they are cheaper and cool better.-simple

    2) Running dual heatercores isn't that difficult. To do it correctly, one must set up the heatercores in parallel not series. This means use a Y-fitting. This is great for heatercores, it increases flow and will decrease your load temperatures.

    Two heatercores are pretty kickass, but most people do not have space for them nor run them correctly. Just remember PARALLEL, its a big deal.

    Ummm.. heatercores are just radiators but on a smaller format in the auto industry (they're both built on the same principals) but in the PC industry a heatercore is a radiator (ya wouldn't really use the full size automobile one) if ya really want to get technical. :rolleyes2

    Its a rule of thumb, bigger is better when it comes to heatercores. And heatercores come from automobiles. To find a good one that works for you go here
    Or just http://www.pullmanford.com/heatercores/
    And most watercoolers now use heatercores because it is cheaper and doesn't restrict flow as much.
