Radiators are 100% developed and also manufactured by us. That is why we are the only company to have genuine all-copper radiators, where all water-bearing parts are made of copper. The only exceptions are the threads, which are made of brass: Copper would be too soft for this. All other manufacturers do not have copper channels but use steel or other materials to conduct the water from pre-chamber to pre-chamber and to transfer the heat to the fins.
Your idea would of course be feasible, but would roughly triple the cost of a radiator. It's not as simple as you imagine. Because the channel lengths would have to be adapted separately for the offset threads, and that is one of the most expensive points in the manufacture of a radiator.

By the way, there is no dead angle for the air. There is always some space between the fan and the cooling fins so that an air bed can form between the fan and the cooling fins. This is further increased with a fan shroud. As a result, air flows relatively evenly through the radiator.

180/200mm radiators also have such a low heat load that these radiator sizes are actually not worth selling at all. The fact that we offer them at all is solely due to the fact that we were the only manufacturer who wanted to offer all possible sizes. We are the only manufacturer that actually covers all fan sizes. 40, 50, 60, 80, 92, 12, 140, 180/200mm radiators in all shapes, thicknesses and sizes. No one else has that.
When you say "low heat load" do you mean that it exceeds the cooling required for most PC applications? Just want to know what you meant by that I am not sure that I understood that.

Argh... sorry... translation fault.
The sales for 180/200mm radiators are very low, so it makes not really sense to sell them. Also a problem, the mountings of 180/200mm fans dont have a standard. There are 3 different mounting positions on the market and some brands are using exclusive mounting hole positions.
And at least.... the fans have very very low pressure. 120/140mm are much better than any 200mm fan.

Okay, so I propose another idea that may be more feasible.
AlphaCool radiator fin-repair tool, which is meant for the more delicate copper fins of these alphacool radiators. current tools are mainly for vehicle radiators which are usually made from harder metals like aluminum, they are also not very well designed. I think the tip of these comb-like tools should be slightly pointed rather than.

I tried very carefully straightening a bent radiator fin on my alphacool 200mm radiator and i damaged the fin more, (a very insignificant amount of damage) but still, made me regret even touching the thing. In my opinion it is too delicate, and maybe it would be nice to develop a repair tool. Even if the tool can only be used once (because the metal will become weaker as it is bent more times), I think it could be better than to use other home tools like toothpicks or screwdrivers.


look at picture for example of the concept, although I do not think this is a proper design for full copper fins

I want more Alphacool in Canada!! I resist to buy AIO for my 3090 FTW3 without active backplate because I don't want pay two shipping cost (almost 30% of the AIO)... I ask to NewEgg (they are in your reseller). Hope they will get somes soon. I'll buy the AIO first if I can find one in Canada 😁

The Canadian dealers are difficult to reach and we often don't get any feedback from the dealers in your country. You have to complain to them. Canada is one of the last countries to give us trouble with dealers. No idea why. Only Australia is similarly bad.

120mm × 25mm fan with special shroud with cutout for ram and thus smaller rotor. For example: Fractal Design Focus G, 240mm radiator on top and two 120mm fans attached. If it barely fits, then on two ram slots only.
