I dont know prices of things in Sweden but it can be really inexpensive. Besides a Kuhler 620/920 H40/50/60/70/80/100 all you need is some pvc/tygon tubing or water cooling tubing either works and pvc/tygon can be picked up for cheap at a local hardware store usually. Also need a reservoir, most mods feature the Swiftech Micro Res but any reservoir will do and they usually go for $10-$15 used in the States but check a watercooling provider in your country. The two 1/4" fittings should run you more then $3-$4 a piece again check your local listings. Add a gallon of distilled water from the super market and your done. Total should be ~$25 USD if that. Depends on how cheap you can get things and the cost of items in your country etc. Again I believe they are 1/4" fittings but you may want to Google that. Or if you dont want to pay for a reservoir you can make your self one just be creative. biggrin.gif This is my mod'd H70 from a few months ago, Version 1 anyway. Version 2 uses a EK Multi Reservoir and is still happily pumping away the heat in my friends PC

The issue I had with my h60 mod was that the block was copper and the rads were all aluminium. Granted it might be different with the antec stuff, but at a similar price point I would doubt it. That is why the corsair AIOs aren't filled with just distilled, you need an anti-corrosive or you are just creating a perfect environment for galvanic corrosion.

You make a good point which I forgot. I ran my mod with Ethelyne Glycol. Whic is what the Antec and Corsairs come with from the factory. You can used distilled + 10ppm Ethelyne Glycol or Distilled + a biocide or Distilled+ antifreeze. This will help prevent galvanic corrosion. Nice save Rickles

Ok I have a h20, but was wanting a 920.... Can anyone tell me if there will be a significant temp drop between the two?

Looks to be around 5 degrees C.

I assume you mean you have a 620 and wanted a 920?
From research not experience you would see a 5-10 degree drop in temps from the 920's bigger rad and more powerful fan.
From experience, for anyone overclocking more then just a little bit the only way to go would be the 920 as the 620 just doesn't have the performance to dissipate the heat of a highly overclocked chip. I was not able to up my OC from the settings I had under a CM hyper 212 when I upgraded to the 620. If anything, to be honest, the hyper 212 may have performed slightly better... frown.gif

If I could go back I would have waited to toss out the extra bit of cash on the 920, but now I have a 620 to mod for my GPU if I get a 920. However I feel like custom loop will be the next step I take into liquid.

*Two pictures*
Prices in sweden are in general a little bit higher compared to the US! tongue.gif
Thanks again for a really helpful answer, If I decide to test it out this idea, I will post here about it, but in either case I learned a very intresting thing ! thumb.gif
Doesnt sound too expensive, thanks smile.gif

Glycol is a must or the block will rust/blockup internally.
Also dont go too large with pipes and res or the pump will burn out.

Difference between 620 and 920 isnt worth upgrading.

Lap the 620 block and stick 2 high flow fans on the radiator and it performs better then a stock 920.
Sticking the same fans on the 920 and lapping it made 3C difference on my 8120 @ 5ghz. So if I was to do it again would of just stuck with the 620.

Also one thing to note is the 620 radiator didnt block up with dust as fast.
The size of the radiator doesnt really matter since the cooler is limited by its weak pump and small coolant pipes compared to a proper water kit.

I installed my 920 on my 3930K today at 4.5Ghz and temps are at 85c under load (FAH). By removing the stock fans and installing 2 corsair SP120 fans I got the temps down to 80c, but I would like to see them lower than that. Any reccomendations on fans greater than 1800rpm that are still quiet? One SP120 with the Stock Antec fan made a horrible noise.

But was the cpu lapped too?
