135 CFM canĀ“t cool Tjernobyl, but should be enough for a computer.
I guess there are more parameters than just flow to consider, but I leave that for the more expereinced.

Do you have copper in your system? As that appears to be a aluminum rad the battery effect could be a problem. You'll need to use a alum. waterblock to avoid that, and that means lower performance.

That fan will provide plenty of air.

Just make a small scratch somewhere it won't show on the tanks and on one of the tubes. That will tell the tale. If it's a all brass/copper rad it will do you a good job.
