I know eBay but what do I look for? Anyone know exactly this type of product? I need something slim in height for a portable.

yea I've been looking for one myself, let me know if you find it. WompaStompa11 said he'll let me know if there are any more on ebay, but he said it was the only one he found, and obviously he bought it. But actually now looking at it, is that just a 92mm rad? It may be smaller, I hope so though.

An auto parts store would have one. (Transmission oil cooler.)

It'd be just a tad bigger (maybe 12"x4"x1") but if you've got the room...

What would that oil rad be in comparison to a fan size in Milimetres?

Uh... a lot?

Google to the rescue!

Twelve inches equals three hundred and four point eight millimeters, four inches equals one hundred and one point six millimeters, one inch equals twenty-five point four millimeters.

I meant in diagnal distance (I think since that's how they measure the fans). If it's about 80mm, I can work with it but it can't be much more. The one wompa used was probably about that, but it's almost impossible to find these/

Your diagonal's going to be quite a bit higher than 80mm, I'm afraid.

You can try tracking down a power steering cooler somewhere, those were pretty small in comparison, but they're harder to find in parts stores.

What about a Heater Core? Gotta find the right size tho. You can buy radiators built for PCs here.

Any doubt its just a PC water cooling radiator with the case stripped off.
Try Thermaltake, they sell water cooling parts and systems for PC applications.

Most of them are not that large and fit most standard size fan applications like on the back a PC case.
32-35mm? i dunno
