never thought about it but it should work as long as both the pumps have the same specs. eg two 620 pumps. PNY made a GPU + CPU GTX580 cooler once

Sure, why not smile.gif two thick 120mm or one 240 should be alright with those pumps smile.gif

+rep to you for trying out something different, thumb.gif
remember to post some pics when you are done smile.gif

is there any testing on noise and/or temps for mounting the rad with tubes on bottom vs top?

it would make sense that you would get lower noise and temps if tubes were mounted on the bottom because the air would get trapped in the top of the rad. if tubes were on the top, air bubles would circulate through the system.

doesn't matter, but most people go with both the rad and pump tubes mounted on bottom, looks better that way, although my friend has his 620's radiator mounted on the top of his case.

According to you, putting tubes from 3/8 and then increasing the liquid in the circuit you will have more 'performance or the pump works best with thin tubes?

What I did say was that it is possible to hook up two pumps and rads to work togather like a CPU + GPU loop, similar to the liquid cooler pny gtx580.

I dont know much, just considered doing something with my kuhler a while back, but scraped the idea since I dont have the funds and tools and all. From what I know you wont gain any more performance replacing the tubes, (the correct size however is 1/4 or at least that what I was told by many others) You are better off using 2 good fans in a push pull setup. smile.gif

I'll be Brief. Even tho I dont spend a lot of time infront of computers working with them has become a new hobby of mine and I have done a few projects of my own, every now and then I have also lurked OCN. Reason I joined the site was actually give something back to the community, specially the Antec Kuhler Users.
I have seen a lot of you who for aesthetics or for what ever reason wish to modify the Antec Kuhlers with Clear Tubing and Reservoirs and vice versa.
Well Dr.Bill and I(Mostly Dr. Bill) wrote a small guide showing a neat little trick on How to Take Apart / Disassemble / Remove the Antec Kuhler 620 and 920's Tubes Without Cutting the Tubes. We actually did this tutorial back in Early January this year as part of another fun little project. smile.gif
So for those of you who want it, here it is...

So i did RMA on my Antec 920 and i got a new but it is also making a fish tank noise. First few days it sounded like it will not make noise but now it does it. I don't want to RMA again so i will just live with it. I don't hear the noise when i play a game or listen to music with headphones. This is really annoying tho.

Probably my next PC will have air cooler instead so i don't end up with noisy water cooler.

Can you again tell us how everything is set up? Where it's all at in the case? Plus how is the pump connected?
