New Build EK-KIT H3O Supreme HF 240, extend

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

Just doing a new build was looking at getting the Corsair H70 cooler but heard bad things about them, so thinkin of buying the EK-KIT H3O - Supreme HF 240water cooling kit instead.

My case will be the new Corsair 650D which comes out early march. First off i just want to do CPU cooling which is why i chose that kit.

My question is though later down the line i would look to extend the cooling to my GPU (Nvidia 560 ti). How would go go about extending the loop for a kit with minimal spending. Do u think new pump and res would be needed or to cope (read EK pumps are good) or would a new loop be need, or just run it from cpu.

Any thoughts would be good

U will have absolutly no problems with that pump or rad in adding a gpu to it, u got nothing to worry about, maybe if you were to add a nb/sb block and mosfets too the. It would be a slight proble due to high restriction, but with just another gpu u are all good

Go CPU first then GPU. Try to stay away from the dye and use coloured tubing. Distilled water + a silver coil is all you need.

I got the 360 version of this kit. It's a great kit imo, when I first installed it it was on a cpu only, but i've since added a 240 rad and two gpu waterblocks and I've been very happy with it.
