    What kind of coolant [H70]

    Hey guys i was thinking of modding my H70 to add a bigger radiator and reservoir, my question is what kind of coolant should i use for it and what types are best in general?
    Also i would like if its wise to use bigger tubing or it will cause strain on the pump?



    Thanks

    Well I use primochill and feser coolant. As for tubing I would use same size and as far as res I would just use t-line instead of res. But also why change H70 anyway?

    Im planning on water-cooling my gpus (when i have them that is :P) and because i want to have as less stuff as i can im my case ill stick with the h70 pump since it doubles as a cpu block and change the rest.

    Well I hope u don't plan on just using H70 pump with gpus also. I would just buy swiftech apogee xt kit. It's got a strong pump and excellent block and it's a small kit just add gpus to loop.

    That one's not bad actually and its price is reasonable too, does it have a decent radiator? Also i was thinking one of the EK kits what do you think?

    I haven't tried the EK kits but I own quite a few of their parts and I like. As for swiftech I have that kit and the rad is good for a CPU and a gpu. Would do even better with a triple rad if u plan on ocing.

    If you are planning to use one of those small pumps with a larger loop I would not use any premixed coolants. Pure distilled water with a biocide like PTNuke would be best to minimize viscosity. Higher viscosity coolant on an oversized loop will only kill a small pump faster.
