h100i modification ideas.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, would it be possible to run a 480mm radiator off of the h100i pu

Currently not concerned with the modding that would be needed.

I am just wondering if the pump is powerful enough to do such things.

Probably if you filled and bled outside the case with barbs pointed up. Most radiators are pretty low in restriction so I would have a hard time seeing why not if you replaced the 240 with a 480, the restriction difference would be insignificant with most rads.

From the way I understand it pre built loops that you could get at like Newegg dont have very powerful pumps. So im not saying it couldnt but you should be careful. If you would have asked if like a Swiftech closed loop system could do it I wouldnt be concerned but you'll just have to see I guess.

The main concern would be adding compression fittings to the pump and old rad. Because if im going to do this, im going to put the 240 in the bottom of my case, as you can see ive added a place for it in my profile picture rig. I could definately try it with a flow indicator to make sure that it has enough power to be able to push the coolant. I may even try a waterblock on my 680. And if it turns out that it wont work i can just save up for a real pump.

In light of prices for water cooling components. I may be able to build a custom loop. How much would an H100 i (newest version) be worth? It isnt that used. Maybe 200 hours max put on it. All parts included.
