How did you remove the hoses on your H80? I'd like to do the same with mine at some point. Also, anyone know if the pump is powerful enough to handle a 360 rad instead of the 120, as well as an extra block? Not likely, but thought I'd ask since I won't be concerned with temps at all, as long as they aren't way out or something. The plan is to make a super cheap loop for a case mod I am doing with some old hardware...I'd just skip it and use the H80 before spending on a full loop. The plan would be something similar to this -
H80 pump/block + Swiftech MCR360-QP-RES + Swiftech MCW82
(Intel e5700 s775 + 320 rad/reservoir + Universal, GTX 460)
It's a strange plan that won't give the best performance, I know, but this would only cost me about $100 or so to get going, which is about the limit on what I am willing to spend on this. Oh, and obviously I already have the spare H80 that's collecting dust.Edited by Aaron_Henderson - 4/29/13 at 8:28am
