Radiator placement... Will this work?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Hi there!
 
For my new scratch build: I'm still not sure on how to place my radiators. How bad is it to mount a radiator onto a aluminium sheet without air that can go through?
 
I've added some images to clarify. I've drawn 1cm metal spacers between the radiator and the aluminium sheet so the air can go through the radiator, and then to the sides. Not sure how bad it will affect the temperature..
 
What do you guys think?

Putting spacers would solve the problem but I don't think 1 cm is going to be enough. If you could increase the seperation, then it'll be fine.

Not really, it would be sucking in the same air it just exhausted. Without a hole there's no where for fresh cool air to enter the system.

It will be an open air build, so there will be plenty of fresh air, its only about the air having enough room to be exhausted..

In that case then @juandeag2k was correct, add some spacers (or even standoffs) and it should be fine. Don't have it sitting flush to the metal though otherwise it will choke.
