This is #15 in my series of triple radiators the new Coolgate HD.  This model is one of their newer line that utilizes a more dense split fin technology for the fins, it has 12 copper tubes, brass end tanks, an air bleed screw, and the same clear protected copper plated finish.  This is a really unique looking radiator with its copper plating and I was eager to see the results considering it uses more desirable copper tubes, it’s over width,  and it uses split fin in a slimmer 34mm thickness package.

I measured about 128mm wide, 34mm thick, and 402mm long.  I also only see 2 G1/4 ports and one air bleed screw.  I believe the tubes and fins are copper and the end tanks are brass.  I also see there are a full 12 tubes and 13 rows of fins for a slightly oversized width which is good.

This is #14 in my series of triple radiators the Coolgate Single Row Acrylic.  This is a newer premium revision of the previous Magicool 360 Elegant that has been revised to include copper plating and the premium Coolgate brand name.  It is a slimmer 34mm thickness radiator with a very unique copper plating, copper tubes/fins, see through acrylic end tanks, and an air bleed screw.  For those that want shiny copper and fluid visibility, the Coolgate Single Row Acrylic may just be the radiator for you.

While there isn’t a website or specification set for this particular model, I did link the magicool elegant below.  I have is a slightly different model with the copper plating.  My screws were also 6-32 instead of the specified M3.  I also believe the tubes and ends that attach to the acrylic ends are both copper doing a slight scraping test which is good for thermal performance.

I found the thickness to be about 34mm.

Ever wondered if we would see plating on radiators as opposed to the normal black paint standards?  The folks over at Coolgate asked if I would be interested in reviewing a few of thier radiators, and I said sure. They mentioned something about copper plating and when they arrived, sure enough…lots of shiny copper plating covering the entire radiator.  I haven’t seen much posted on this plating feature, so I wanted to share a quick preview.

I also wanted to say thanks to everyone who donated their support for the site.  I now have the web hosting covered for another year and enough to cover some additional reviews.

Here are a couple of preview picture teasers…:)

These are going on my test bench next, so stay tuned for some performance numbers to go with all that copper bling!

Cheers!
