Water cooling my MITX machine.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

So I have an MITX rig that has a stock cooler 290x and h100i cooled 4770k.
I was wondering if the pump on the h100i would be strong enough to pump coolant in a system that consisted of the h100i's rad a 290x water block and a 120 or 140 rad.
Rig is in a 250d so there isn't much room to work and I don't want to spend the 300+ to buy a single drive bay res/pump combo.

Or should I just do the NZXT kraken and gpu adapter?

Thanks for your time!

The H100i contains aluminum in the radiator, so keep in mind the mixing of metals when breaking out an AIO cooler into a custom loop with distilled water. The AIO cooler its own water mixture that contains ethylene glycol as an anti-corrosive.

Thanks for the heads up about the aluminum. I figured their coolant had ethylene glycol. Do you think it is worth doing or should I just do an AIO for the 290x?
