What exactly are you explaining? That you were wrong about aluminum being a superior CONDUCTOR to copper brass? That was the original topic.

There's more to a radiator's efficiency than the thermodynamics of the base material it's made out of.

With aluminum you can have more surface area for heat transfer without making it weigh a zillion pounds (yes, I'm embellishing that a bit) like it would with the same number of rows/fins if it were copper/brass.

That's where the advantage of aluminum comes in. The copper/brass does radiate heat (or conduct or whatever term you choose to use) better than aluminum does, but like I said, that's only a part of the equation.

^Yeah, that's what I was trying to tell the TJ guy. Still not sure he gets it.
