All im gonna say, is modding H series coolers is hard and very frustrating.

More rad=better temps.
If you got another pump, I would just remove the one in the waterblock. It's really weak I think.

Are you referring to having high temperatures on your 3770K prince? If so no amount of watercooling will change that, the 3770k like the 3570k is notoriously hot past a certain voltage.

My honest advice to get the best temp out of the H60 is to just get a high quality fan like a Gentle typhoon AP-15. To do the mod properly and fully safely (at least imo) you will need to incorporate a reservoir into the loop to ensure there is no air. At that point you have added a pump, radiator, reservoir why not just get a high performing water block. I know modding is fun and I have wanted to do it myself but I would simply recommend a custom loop if you are going to go through all that trouble.

there are boo-koo threads on H-series mods and antec mods.. is it worth it..
for a month or two, then they seem to peter-out. usually the pump dies or
the temps get foul. if you gunna add anothe pump, then you are 80% ready
on a custom loop.add a cpu block and res.. done.
OCN market place has those.. 30 for a RASA cpu block and 20 for micro res.
