same way a heatsink works, heat is evenly distributed using conduction through the metal and then using convection the air takes heat from the metal. hopefully I said it simple enough.

+1, nice response Mansfield, Your fans blow air through the fins cooling them, and taking the heat from, if you look closer Op you will see the larger flattened tubes running the length of the rad, thats what the fins are mounted onto
