on par? what?
With the monitor so far out it is creating extra torque against you to make it even heavier effectively, get the heaviest parts as close as possible and you could reduce a lot of that extra weight
This is the stuff that grinds my gears!!! Aluminum fin rads are better than copper because aluminum has a lower specific heat than copper, meaning it will cool much faster, while copper holds heat better, last I checked you wanted to take all the heat away. Copper does pull the heat away form the loop faster than Al due to this, but it doesn't get rid of it as quickly, meaning ultimately it will preform worse than Al as a rad fin. This is the reason copper pipe is used for heating as it gets hot quickly and doesn't lose it as quickly as steel or ALUMINUM... Rants over
