Anybody have recommendations for a high find density 60mm thick 3x120 copper radiator? The skinny rad I have now has 30 fpi. Looking for something like that but thicker.

AFAIK, the thicker rads in the market do not carry a 30 FPI rad. Most are anywhere from 8/9-16 FPI.

The heat dissipation they show is not for watercooling PC's I remember this post:

So take their numbers with a bucket of salt.......

They say a DT of 15C or 25C. That's really high, but impressive if you have more normal heatloads.

I'd say it could do 125 watts per 120mm of fannage with good 38mm thick Delta fans at 3000 RPM, maybe 150. So, it could be good for up to 450 watts, maybe a a 10C DT. At the expense of sanity due to the fans.

The sound you'd make on these high FPI rads would be similar if not worst than air cooling. No way jose.

To each their own I guess.
