    As I said, they're not BIX. Look at the HWLabs website and compare size and capacity.

    black ice pro

    black ice extreme

    also note, BIPro has several 'now with' or 'new'.

    The BI Pro is a remake of the BI Prime with 2-pass design for lower flow resistance. Doesn't actually affect the capacity much.

    Again, you can now buy the Black Ice 2 with 1/2" fittings and 2 pass design. But this is not the Black Ice Extreme 2. Check the cooling-solutions.de website

    http://www.cooling-store.de/csshop/index.php press 'Wärmetauscher'

    and compare the BI2 there to the one on the Nokytech website.

    http://www.nokytech.net/news.php?id_news=1603

    notice that one is 28mm thick and one is 45mm thick. Also notice that the BIX is 45mm and the BIP is 29mm.

    Sorry to be stubborn, just the way I am:lol:

    just got one of those black ice micros today .. god there well cool .... shame about the size of the fittings tho .. only 1/4 .. nightmare ..... scratching away at the paint coating .. as u do ... and appears the fins are copper .. the chamber bits are alu and the shroud bit looks like brass .. i may be wrong about the brass .. wheren't they supose to be all brass and copper tho? i might have a imitation one i dunno ? doesn't matter really ether way i'm only gonna use it to cool air within my system .. once i got my chiller fully insulated

    welded or screwed in barbs? Might do very nice for a rad on the aux loop of my planned piece of overspecing. But I'd like to rig it with plug-in fittings.

    EDIT: looked at the pic. No joy.

    you guys are right about the BI pro, shouldnt have doubted yous :)

    ive seen some site a while ago, selling the coloured BIX and linking to the BI pro page. so i guess this got me all confuesed.

    What is the difference between the BIX and BIX Rev. 2?

    It isn't a BIX rev2 it's a BIX2. designed to take two 120mm fans on each side compared to just one with the BIX.

    =double the heat capacity

    What I meant was that there is a BIX Rev 2 AND a BIX2.

    They are NOT the same thing.

    As far as I know, nowhere is selling the BIX2 yet, si I will assume that it is the BIX rev 2 that you have.

    Sorry for any confusion caused.

    A BIM will cool just about anything. It depends on how cool you want them.

    The water will rise to a high enough temperature that there is sufficient temperature difference across the heat exchanger to dissipate the required heat load.

    For a larger or more efficient heat exchanger, this temperature difference will be lower, which is why larger rads can keep coolant at near ambient temperatures.

    A given radiator will have a thermal resistance, written as C/W.

    Thus, the required temperature difference between water and air will be the resistance multiplied by the heat load in watts.

    This resistance is determined primarily by the geometry and construction of the heat exchanger, but also by the properties and flow rates (turbulence) of both fluids, in this case water and air.

    So in the case of the black ice micro, due to its smaller geometry, the thermal resistance will be increased. This could be countered by increasing the turbulence of either fluid, (by increasing the water flow rate, or putting a stronger fan on).

    I hope this makes sense.
