1. Are all 3 of these radiators the same? i noticed swiftech has different numbers at the end, i want to make sure i m getting the right kind.
2. Shouldnt i keep the loop all one type of metal? ex: use all copper parts and dont mix with nickel?

1. yes all 3 rads are the same and they do the same thing but the desgin for each one is a bit different insides.
2. You will need to keep it the same metal b/c if you mixed certin metals with each other they can rust from the inside out.
3. They all do the same thing..
4. the last 3 links are the same one but it all depends on the fittings that you want to use
5. newgg.com or try tigerdirect.com
6. I have used paypal alot of times. Its alot safer then giveing them directly your creditcard number
7. its like all curreceny. they have different rates and stuff. search online for curencey conveter and what is the different prices or try useing tigerdirect they have good selections
8. yes they will fray if you dont the right size. you will not be able to cut them when you recevied them. they wont be see throught if you dont stretch them too much
9. are you using the sleaving for the psu cables or just for the psu.
10. 1/4 should be good for most psu cables
11. one of them has a window and the inside are painted black
12. the higher the rpms the more air flow but more noise the typhoons will make.
