I am of the same opinion. I have 2 120mm rads dumping heat into case (from video cards) with top 240mm radiator with exhaust fans. I don't have any issues with heat build up and I doubt that it affects temperature much. In my case I did not want even more dust blowing into case from top, since that side does not have filter (bottom, side and front have filters).

Oh but what if I get a rad with a fill port aswell ?
Could that work ?
Where can i find rads with file ports ?
Im pretty good with a drill I could make a small fill port and plug it using those reusable wine bottle plugs =P

But lets say I cant find a rad with a fill port , would adding a res be a bad idea ? im not too sure about the pumps ability though , but will a res make it more difficult to pump water ?

trying to save as much money as I can on this =-)

And thanks so much for the help guys, If any of you are in Singapore PM and me and we can get some beers =)

Not really. The reason is that your current kit doesn't come with detachable tubing so you won't be able to route them to an additional radiator. I know that there are those that have modified those closed-loop kits, but I really wouldn't advise it.

The reason for this is that it will likely void your warranty, and if you managed to break something while modifying it then you're out of luck. This is the reason we designed our kits to be expanded right out of the box. The Cooler Master Glacers are the same way because essentially they're our kits with some slight modifications. I hope this answers your question.

Yep I got it I actually already bought the H220 for my 7970 and its doing very well but i had to route it out of the case and thank goodness for the detachable tubing the rad makes my PC look like a serious peice of hardware which i like, but now I was thinking of doing the same to my kraken x40 =)

thanks for the advice i think im just going to sell my x40 and get a another H220 for my CPU,
gonna get some nice UV blue tubing for it =)

wondering why you'd buy another h220 instead of just expanding your current h220 loop? or are they 2 different rigs altogether?

I think they're two different rigs. If not then it really doesn't make much sense.

Agreed, you could just add in a cpu block. No need to buy another whole kit.

Well the 7970 was getting hotter then the CPU around 80c when playing games , and I did try using the X40 on the 7970 but it only improved slightly , when I used the H220 the temps drop by almost 20c which was great ! Plus the x40 was doing a fine job at keeping my CPU cool ,
I just want to change the look of the ugly black tubing and at the same time get better temps with the CPU. =)

Note* The 7970 is a lighting edition 7970 and i have it OCed to 1290MHZ currently. and the temps from it combing it with the CPU loop would make my CPU temp rise alot =/
I live in a tropical country where room temp can be 30c avg ( yeah its blistering over here ) and my room had very poor air circulation.
