How does straight fins affect performance? But it does look good. Are you going to leave the fins bare or paint them?

I just prefer the look of the flat fin, plus, as far as it goes in real-world applications (in trucks, skids, gen sets etc.), it cools better. In our application (PC water cooling), I have no idea how well it will cool.

Well, I decided to paint this one white and black. Of course, I can do them in any way I wish, but I like the look of this one:

That's a good looking rad. Have you done any leak tests out of curiosity?

Of course! Pressure test after top and bottom tanks are installed, and again after the side brackets. Leak free.

I don't have any testing, but I might get Martin to test it for me when he has time :)
