Thanks for moving it to the water cooling section. Wasn't quite sure if it truly did belong there.
It's hard capturing a picture of the "in progress" part. I do it on my own time in the shop, so it's only me in there, and both my hands are full while I do it :p

how did you do the radiator fins?
also, another one here looking for pictures of the build process.
and could you take some pictures of the entire thing?
and how are you planning on attaching the fans to that? do you have another frame you are going to attach to it or are you going to do something macgyver-ish to attach them?

Machines are used to make the fins. Whether is be dimples, dents, slits, etc.
I'll get you a picture of the entire thing tomorrow :)
Yes, I am building a bracket that will cover it. But it's not a typical 120mm fan bracket

Jealous that you have the tools available to make something like that.

Picture of it now painted black. I also have a full shot of it too :) Still need to go find somewhere that can make the side plates.

Any thoughts on how you are going to do a shroud/fan mounts?

Same way as any other PC radiator :) Only, instead of soldering it on, I'll use some industrial/ automotive epoxy.

I defiantly need to cut down on the FPI on my next one. This one is only 11 - looks like a lot more in the picture because the way the fins are shaped.

Any progress on the shroud?

EDIT: It is hard to tell from your pics, but are you using flat or round tubing in the radiator?

Could you take some photos of it from further back? Maybe put a 20 dollar bill beside it so I can get some idea of how big it is? Dun want artsy fartsy pics just the Facts Man!
This is an experiment I plan on doing myself sometime.


thx.

ps Dazmode had some high cfm 120mm fans on sale for half price recently.
