Does such a radiator as this exist?

Ideal radiator for me would be something shaped similar to the Swiftech RAD676 but smaller - about 7" x 4" so it could be adequately cooled by two 80mm fans mounted on the inside of the case (the radiator would be on the outside of the case attached with a gasket).

Does anyone make a beast like this? What size are the automotive heatercores I see mentioned here? Thanks.

There's the Black Ice Micro that's made to fit a single 80mm fan. Doubling up may work well (in series), but they're $40 apiece. :p

This is one I have been looking at because I need similar to you. I haven't had much feedback about it except 2 people talking about the company but it doesn't seem bad to me. Heres the link...http://www.sysfx.net/cgi-bin/cart.e...&sub=Heat Exchangers&pro=Radiators&sku=EX-430


man that looks awesome but $65???? i got my heatercore @ napa for like $12! shop discount but still, that's a huge difference. i have a friend @ napa so not only do i get a discount, i was able to go in the back and dig through boxes till i found a heatercore about the size i wanted. sometimes they may let you do this at any parts store if you ask very very nicely. lol. myheatercore is fairly huge though, i wanted the largest i could fit, i'll say it's about 6x7 1/2". works well, a bit too small for 2 120's though, and a bit too large for 2 80's. i've got one 120 mounted on it, pulling air up out of the case and through it, works very well so long as i keep the case temps low enough. :D

my point is, if you look hard enough, you can find a heatercore to fit your size requierments without spending alot of jack!



good luck!

Ohh, that's very close to want I want, thanks.It is expensive all right and if I have to get it from the States (I'm in Canada) that price will easily double. Still it's nice to know it exists.

there is a blk ice micro 2 coming out. meets your requirements.

Thanks.It's the exact size needed (191x85x50mm). It looks like it's available in Europe now. I hope there's a resale market for the Swiftech radiator I just ordered as part of a kit :(

Only information I've found has been on European (foreign language) webstore sites. Hopefully it will be available in North America before too long. Although it's not even available at Chill-Tek yet. It's downright strange that a radiator to fit the very common double 80mm fan layout hasn't been designed well before now.
