radiator question


is a car oil cooler good enough for a radiator for my watercool system ?>
also, my room temperature is around 24c... and the water coming out from the waterblock is cold... just a little warmer than room temperature
i would like to ask if this is normal and if not, how can i overcome it... Thanks

Oil coolers are quite large if I remember correctly, it would definately be more than enough, but if your going used, check it out. Someone said on here oil coolers are mounted in such a way that they take most of the impact in front-end collisions.

Just get a heater core, cheaper, smaller, and proven better than these pre-made rads you find online.
