Thinking about buying one and expand it with another radiator. (Later expand to GFX WC) But I could use some help to that, since this will be my "first" actually WB.

I will place the H220 rad in the front with push/pull configuration & the other one should be placed at the top in my FD Arc mini. But the radiator shouldn't be bigger than a Swiftech Rad or H100, because I'm worried that it might interfere with my RAM's.
So i'm thinking about getting a HW-Labs Black Ice - GTS Lite 240 in push/pull also, but would it gain more if I choosed to get a bigger rad and only do pull or push instead of both?

Also I would need some fittings for the new rad? As told I will place it at the top but which fittings to choose? The fittings should turn against the 5,25bay because there's the space to get the tubes routed good.
Also which tubes do I need to get it all working together and with 2 rads I'm gonna need some coolant can you guys recommend something?

Currently I'm having 4x Akasa Apache fans but should I change them to something else?

Hope you guys can help me out a little bit. smile.gif

If by lapped, you mean a nice shiny reflective surface, then yes. If you mean lapped as in flat, then no. Their coldplate, like many manufactures today, assumes your IHS is concave so the surface of the H220 is slightly convex.

I went with another MCR-220-QP for my loop, for the second rad. I got the HydrX coolant concentrate, and I am buying some distilled water locally. For this system you want to get 3/8 ID / 5/8 OD fittings, you can get compression, or barb whichever your preference. I got some of this tubing here.

I'm curious to know if they stealth GT thin rad push pull would be better than the MCR-220-QP, I went with swiftech just to keep things consistent in my prodigy. Let us know how it goes for you.
