Cooler Master Nepton 280L hose and coolant change?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello! Just picked up a used nepton 280 for $60 shipped. However, I'd like to externally mount it and run my hoses through the back of my cases rubber grommets. Does the system have to be pressurized? Can I disconnect lines at the pump, run the lines and reconnect without issue? Can I refill it with new coolant? Can I use custom hoses? -Thanks! thumb.gif

This can all be done. However, when I have seen people take apart AIO watercoolers and then put them back together, it is never done properly and the pump usually dies. If you take this apart, you will want to re-connect the tubing with clamps to assure a tight seal (use whatever tubing fits the best). Most importantly, you will want to introduce a reservoir into the loop to allow the loop to be bled of air that would ruin the pump from improper refilling.

I may do that in a future project thumb.gif
