There are no quick disconnects on the Prestige models, they are compression fittings. Adding a block and a rad is a pretty simple process, and you will need the following:

4 - 3/8 x 5/8" compression fittings
GPU Block for your specific GPU
Radiator
3/8 x 5/8" tubing - preferably Primochill Advanced LRT
Coolant - 1 liter should be sufficient
Additional reservoir - completely optional, but they are the look that most people like, and in many cases make filling and bleeding easier - can you list out your setup with the location of the H240?
A Tattoo artists wash bottle like this (not kidding here, makes filling much, much easier) - https://www.amazon.com/DCDEAL-Condiment-Cleaning-Transparent-Container/dp/B010Q2815W/


I will look around and see if I can find a decent guide to expanding, or perhaps some one here has already written one up. I know that @Madmaxneo changes his setup and drains and refills about every two hours (or it least it seems that often wink.gif), so he can likely give you some good pointers on much of this.

Did Swiftech take down the videos on their site? They had videos that showed how to flush and expand your AIO units.

EDIT: I was wrong, they only have a video for the original H220 on their website. It leads to Rouchon's Youtube channel. As you have different fittings and other pieces, it could not be followed 100%. Anyway, here it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fpum4J6C2k

What @ciarlatano said. For coolant you can just use distilled water and a simple additive like the Mayhems XT-1 that I use. Others will have more suggestions. If you need links then ask and someone will post some for you, You may get a lot of opinions on the different parts and coolant. Since you are a beginner like I was not to long ago I would make it as simple as possible then work your way up. It is not that hard to add or change your loop, but patience is important. Take your time and do it right. Before you actually start ask questions on here. If you have a second PC or another way of posting here you can do so while you are working on your loop. Answers may not come quick though. But they will come.

LOL, yeah that was a few months ago. All is well now and working great and I have not touched my loop since. Switching to the Primochill advanced LRT tubing was probably my best move so far. That and adding a single 80mm fan to the bottom two external drive bays of my Phantom 820, it literally dropped my core temps like 3 degrees at idle.

Thanks for the helpful posts.

I saw that video but it's for an older model so I wasn't quite sure how you get the fittings off on this cooler. I thought all the Lok seal fittings were quick disconnect, it's a shame they don't have quick disconnect model AIO's, I liked that about the EK Predator coolers but I don't like the aesthetic of those coolers at all personally.

Multi reservoir sounds good but I'd have to figure out where to put the second one. For my configuration I have a corsair 750d with the h240 mounted at the top.

For coolant I saw mayhem do premixed coloured coolants, are these not as good as simply using distilled water with dye?

The list of components and fittings you've written out is really helpful but to be honest I'm nervous about having a go at this without a good guide for this specific cooler so if someone could help me find one I might have a go at expanding. I'm really up for it because some GPU blocks look beautiful, like the new one swiftech have just brought out for the GTX 1070.

Honestly I've been building computers since I was 10 years old but liquid cooling is something I've never gotten involved with other than AIO's but I kind of want to learn and get involved with it more so any help you guys could offer would be amazing.

Meh, QDs are a potential leak point, and typically don't save much when it comes time to fill.

Use the premix, or the concentrate+distilled. Same thing after it's mixed.

I'll keep looking for a guide. But, I will say this, it is very understandable to be nervous about it, but patience and common sense make it very simple. When you're done you will probably find yourself saying "wait, that's all there is to it??????".

Just double checking, is there an air bleed screw on H240X models that don't have a bleed screw directly on the res? If yes, where?

No, bleeding is done with the fill port.

Hi, I don't want to seem like a complete noob but I am 13 years old and I want to expand into liquid cooling my computer. I have been mowing lawns all spring/summer/fall for almost 3 years now and last year I built my first gaming computer with the X99 ASUS SABERTOOTH and INTEL I7 5820k, with a ASUS 980TI 3 fan cooler. Now that I have saved up around $500 extra dollars I would Like to start watercooling but I feel like it's a bit scary and risky. Can somebody help guide me into building a full water cooling Computer. the rest of my money I am putting for schooling in t he future so 500 is all i have. I was thinking about getting H220X2 and getting a water block from Video Card. What other parts would I need? and how DO i fill the H220X2, i watched videos and it said to fill a reservoir then turn on the pump if the pump is underneath the water but on this cooling kit it shows the pump to the side. Is there a trick to put more water in the cooler? and How would I put a silver coil into the cooler?

Thanks to anyone that can help me, I'm sorry If i might be taking too much time from everybody here.
