Lol

Nice! Take the radiator out of a small car, buy a small liquid pump and you're good to go!

Yep! Then I might as well just bring in a car battery to power the fan that I'll put on the radiator.

Lol might as well. If you wanted to go green you could always create perpetual energy with a car battery, electric engine, transmission, and a small generator. Use the engine and the transmission to turn the generator, which in turns powers the engine. Perpetual energy. The world is saved! Ok, a bit preposterous, but using a large scale radiator would make cooling all of your components a breeze. thumb.gif

Yeah, I figure if I did make a custom loop, I'd have to get a bigger radiator.

I figure something like this wouldn't be too bad... then I could tint the acrylic so that it's darker, instead of being so clear.

Looks good. Shouldn't be hard to tint it. Do you know what volume it can handle?

No, I had just googled water cooling stuff lol..

Lol excellent. I've been planning on a small loop installation as my next upgrade for my build. I was looking at the different open loop watercooling kits. Radiator, reservoir, pump and starter fittings included.

Yeah, same here but since this is my first venture into water cooling, I wanted to keep it simple. THIS looks interesting. I wouldn't be able to mount it into a drive bay, but might be able to figure out some way to attach to to the top my of hard drive case though, depending on the size.

What I'm curious about though, is if I did do something a bit more custom, if I could just swap out the coolant lines that I already have on the H100 for different ones, use the radiator, and the pump, then just add a reservoir from there? I wonder if the existing pump would be strong enough for something like that.

Not sure how strong the pump on the H100 is, but you should be able to do what you're wanting with little to no issue. I would definitely pose that in the watercooling forum. thumb.gif As for that pump, it says dual CD bay, so it could potentially fit in bays, but it would take up some space. You probably could mount it above the hard drive with no issue though.
