    This is dumb, without subambient air being applied to the radiator, theyre only increasing the speed at which the water would reach room temperature, not really cooling it anymore than a normal rad would, only allowing it to heat the water more than a normal rad.

    If you're doing it, do it properly. 3d print two reducer to connect the radiators to the water cooling loop, ignore the transmission cooling inlet/outlet and position the radiator on the same level as the pc. The fact that the loop was constantly refilled negated any results you got.

    Buying prebuilt is worth it especially since not everyone knows enough to put a pc together themselves if you don't know what you are doing just pay the extra 80 to 100 dollars to have someone who knows what they are doing put it together for you saving you days possibly weeks of frustration :)

    Woulda, shoulda, coulda but you could have gotten a transmission cooler WITH a fan for even cheaper. Also you could have got one that was close to the dimensions of the towers side profile and basically just extended the width of the case so it looked more like one real unit. JEGS 60388: High Performance Transmission Cooler 26,000 GVW | JEGS something like that but bigger. Better than 9 smaller fans. Cool project none the less! Also you deserve to blow some hardware for using zip ties instead of oh say something designed and named specifically for that. Hmmmmm!? Maybe hose clamps!?

    My god ya'll did this in what was possibly the worst way ever thought of. Put hose clamps on all of the connections. And if you have to use zip ties, offset them. So the locking bit of one zip tie is offset from the other. The gap is what is leaking. Put the radiator beside the computer so there isn't any extra strain on the pump. Hell, you might want to use a garden pump, the same one you used for the subzero cooling video. i want to see you revisit this but do it MUUUUUUCH different.

    The transmission loop is a oil-to-water cooler and dissipates the heat from the oil into the coolant which then passes that heat in a water-to-air loop via the radiator fins.

    This was the YOLO-est built ever. They have a thermal camera but didnt even try pouring warm water throu the radiator to see the flow patterns, then connected the circuits in series knowing that the ducts with the smaller diameter would increase the resistance to the flow, then they set the radiator above the PC knowing that that would increase the hydrostatic pressure that the pump would have to fight, and finnally (having a warehouse of parts) they tried to use a compresive device (zip ties) to seal a very flexible rubber tube around a very flexible hose instead of using small pieces of pvc pipes to have something to supuport the preasure of the zipties. Anyway, it was funny. I hope they repeat the experiment but this time without any fans just to see if the convective flow of the warm air rising from the radiator and the water pump are enough to keep the PC cooled.

    By plumbing it up in series instead of parallel, you increased the resistance to water flow. Just the same as it would work with electricity. That is bound to cause it to cool less efficiently.

    As a car guy the transmission side does nothing because car transmissions wouldn't need much cooling, little to no cooling is necessary, If you were to redo this for any reason I strongly recommend you only use the motor cooling passageway and ditch the transmission side
