sorry bud, but i didn't find anything on ocn or google that answered my questions, frown.gif wouldn't have asked otherwise tongue.gif. I thought since you and some others have some exprience and done some research on them, you would be hopefully be able to answer. I have seen a few h70 mods but not much on the 620. Do you have some links? I am really trying to avoid having to ad a reservoir if I can just refill it somehow since I have some exttra coolatant here with me. redface.gif

Here is one on a corsair model, the concept would be the same for an Antec as well.

sounds good cavemind biggrin.gif but wouldn't placing t inside the case just create more hot air? why dont you extend the h70 pipes and install it as a exhaust on top of the case instead? or is refilling it one of the reasons you aren't doing it?

/I]


I cant instal in the top of the case as i have a H100 up there. Also the H70 is a perfect fit into the drive bay (i had it there when i used it for a cpu cooler), it has exactly the right size to pressure fit against the sides of the drive bay and does not require modding or zipstraps, plus it will recive the best intake air. Exaust is not an issue. I have a 140mm on the back of the case and 4xultra kaze 2000 on the H100. The cpu stays well cooled right now (23c-27c) and a few more degress that the H70 blowing in its direction will only add a degree or two at most.........no problems thumb.gif

Here is a pic of the H70 pressure fit into the drivebay and not using anything to fasten it, worked like a charm for better than a year and never so much as shifted an inch, rocksolid.

as for modding the H70 its should be pretty simple. Once i figure out exaxtly what liquid mix is inside of it, grab a large tub filled with that liquid and submerge all the parts and instal it "underwater" as ill be sure not to get any air (there is suppose to be a certain ammount of air inside for the pump to operate properly) and then just raise a line quickly to grab a small amount of air (at the rad join hookup) to mimic the original build of the H70.

Easy smeesy biggrin.gif

Thanks Guys. + Reps thumb.gif

I just got a hold of a swiftech reservoir biggrin.gif, but since I am doing this for two cards in SLi, Do I need to get another reservoirs? I mean one for each card / H70 / Kuhler 620 setup or is there any way you would recommend me using one reservoir for them both?

I've been thinking of doing the IHS mod like you did, but for now i'm very happy with the results. I wish the temps were a little lower, but i can't complain. no more noise or running at 77c under load! thumb.gif

Ensamada great contribution BTW, looks fantastic. Dont worry about the IHS removal, modders itch will get you in about two weeks or so after this mod you will powerless to it. The fact youve mentioned the urge for lower temps id say your itch has started early lol

Kidding aside you mod looks very good and like Rage has mentioned alrighty, welcome to the club wink.gif

+rep for you

I'm not knocking you cause I haven't done this yet, but continue to flip over here to see how the turn-out is. I think your temps may have something to do with your radiator. In the pics, it looked like yours could use a little blown out. personally, about every month or so I take mine to my shop and give it a little 120PSI lovebiggrin.gif thats right, why buy air when you have a air compressor. just note, if you do blow it out with a compressor, put a nail or something in all the fans to make sure you dont over-spin them. It sounds cool, i know, but not after you've burned it up blowing the fans backwards, you'll regret it, especially if you have $10+USD in each fan.

yeah, i got lazy last night and tried to clean it as much as i could. i do have a compressor, but it's prone to catching on fire. at least that's what the sears recall letter i got a few months ago said. haha.
