Because the case I have now is too small to have a double rad setup without massive (and irreversible without a lot of work) changes, I was wondering whether it would be possible to add another single rad to a H50. I'll be getting an H50 either way, just wondering whether I can go any further.

And I'm asking because I recall somebody mentioning the pump on it burned out of after they modded their H50, but I can't remember what they had in their loop.

Have you got a reservoir yet? Your H50 is modded or still stock? I think adding a res if you still don't have one could drop temps and do prolly a good job without a second radiator, anyway would be better to post this thread on the official H50 owners club on this section to get some answer from experts^^

I don't have a H50 and won't have one probably for another month, I'm just looking at my options now. And thanks, I didn't think of posting there.

I don't own an H50, but if I did I would not mod it as it (I imagine) was designed to operate as is.

If you wanna add components then I would customize a kit or start from scratch.



If you just wanna mess around, and are not concerned with possible component failure then get the tools out and start modding.

Search thru that H50 owners club - there has been someone who modded theirs to have res+2 120 rads, but I did not continue to follow to see how it faired long term.

This guy put a 240 rad in his setup. I'm contemplating getting the H50 as well but kinda considering a full custom loop at the same time. Not sure yet. Do check this thread out though:

Hopefully that helps.

that was me. it dropped temps a good 10c, but i havent had it long enough to say whether or not it'll fair well long term. i must say it looks hella cool and was pretty easy to do as long as youre not a complete mechanical noob.

let me know if you have any questions and i'll try my best to answer them.
