CoolerMaster Nepton XL140 - good for extending the loop?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering, would dissassembling that AIO to add another radiator, gpu block and a reservoir be a good idea? Can that pump handle it?

I would say these little pumps can handle maybe a second block, OR a second rad. Couldnt trust one with much more. Youll want a reservoir of course, possibly just a fat fill line.

I know frankensteining them together, say modding one to your gpu as well as the cpu helps quite a bit with being able to push water through more rad space.

That's pretty hard to answer without knowing:
How much heat do the components generate (in watts)
What flow rate and air flow the existing rad will have
How much heat they will remove at that flow rate and air flow
What flow rate and air flow will the new rad have
How much heat they will remove at that flow rate and air flow
What added flow restriction will the new rad and block have
What the new flow rate will be with that added restriction
With that new flow rate, how much air flow will the rads need to remove the heat generated.

Without knowing the above there's no way to know if it will work.

Is it a good idea...no.
