Two Corsair H100i modded to CPU+GPU custom serial closed loop - Page 2

you could risk killing your other components, but if you want to try it, go for it. Personally, I wouldn't do it, but if you feel comfortable enough modding the components, its your computer and money.

DOUBT it!!! bet my money on it!! Just the XFX R9 290 (arriving tomorrow) will stay at 95C under load... If you google "The red mod" you'll see that slapping that AIOWC on a GPU brings temps down a lot (must not forget vrm cooling)...

If you actually read what I wrote, I said that it will achieve temps that are not much better than a sufficient air cooling. Do what you want though, up to you. Your money, your time. Unsubbed, sorry I don't want to argue about it.

Yes this is perfectly possible, i have modded AIO's on my GPU's.

I think its better if you run them separately. You get to keep the warranty too. If you really want to connect the two then the risk is on you. Yes it has been done before i know there is someone here who has done it with an H50. Ive seen other people who change out the tubes on their AIO's. Its possible, just search around for the threads.

I would do it on a previous system than a current system when you do it and install it in a system, just for the fact when things go wrong you won't be up crap creek without a paddle. as the saying would go...


once done, make sure you run the system for 24 hour's idle and load (12 idle/12 load) for consistant number's and also would test how well the cooling system will handle the way you've done this modding of cooling systems redface.gif.

Seems you are modding your AIOWC, but have you tried serialing two of them?

btw, h100i here is about the same price as the kuhler 620 if you consider it comes with a 240mm rad and another fan.

Cheers!!
Dang dude, same price, that sucks!
I would use Google and try to find someone taking apart the h100i pump and see if there are flow rates out there for it. Also, report back and let me know if you also find the wattage of the pump alone. The antec 620 is only like 3.0 watts so its super low but its quite surprising how well it does work.
You definitely can run 2 together, although I personally haven't aestek had a CPU+GPU combo loop all in one. So basically you'd be doing that with just a bigger radiator.

You can seal up a loop without a radiator but its kinda tricky... You have to have the pump suck water from a tank of the coolant, then once all the air bubbles are out of the pump attach the radiator and keep running it till all the air bubbles are out of the radiator, that will require shaking the rad and flipping it. Then just submerge the radiator barb and marriage the hose from the pump taking water in to the barb from the rad with water out. with it completely submerged, no bubbles in the loop, completely sealed. Works like a champ for me.
I had just distilled water in my loop for 10 months and I had a little bit of algae growing on my block. I had to scrub it off. I now run antifreeze and distilled water. No issues so far and I'm 1 month in.

Let me know if you need any additional help. This definitely can be done, I just think you need more than 1 240rad to get good temps. Unless the pumps are defective they shouldn't die on you. They're quite resilient.

I had a gtx670 with a 240 rad and lapped thermaltake water 2.0 performer on and I would top out at 35c max temp. 22c idle.

Now I see a guy with balls, modding the hell out of his AIOWC...

Hang on to this thread as I will post results.. In a bit, must buy the second h100i, lap the cpu, mod the r9 290 cooler, install both h100i. Then, and only then, I'll mod them!

See you around!

As little as these pumps are and as insignificant people may see them to be, they do have incredible potential. A pump on a 120rad is identical to that on the 240 rad units, so the pump obviously has the potential for a 240 rad. With as little flow rate as they are, the amount of restriction in the rads are almost irrelovent. So basically mod away is my thinking!

I'm finishing up some other things on my mod but I will report back to you on how 1 pump does with 2-240 rads.
