Converging Corsair 110 radiator into my custom loop.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to remove the radiator from Corsair 110 or a 100i and use the radiator in a custom water cooling loop when i switch to custom watercooling.

Are you able to remove the cables and the waterblock easily.
Or are they built into place.


On a side note-
Would a Corsair 110 280-mm rad fit in a CM Storm stryker case.
On there website is says it supports 120/140 fans times 2.
Does that mean it would support a 280-mm rad.

Thanks.

It might be but is it really worth the time? Most likely not since you can get an equal rad from another company for less than $50 bucks

Thanks i may just go straight to a custom loop.
Cause the corsair on costs about 120 usd just for the CPU and it doesn't seem nearly as good as the custom radiators.

Thank you.

The corsair rads have aluminum cores, that means you need a corrosion inhibitor otherwise you will have galvanic corrosion. You can use a glycol solution, which is what is in it, to do it. You can cut the rad off and just use the block, but as mentioned there are better blocks cheaper.

a good kit to look at would be an xspc 750 kit.

Thank you.

If your trying to stay on the cheap side as well as have potential to expand later I recommend either of these kits. Far better then Corsairs offering

Alphacool NexXxos CoolAnswer 240
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_202_600&products_id=35759

There is also a better version of this one that comes with a better pump that could be later taken off of the Bay res and Used with a standard Res

Or

XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240

EK also makes a similar kit too
