Although the Swiftech H320 is an AIO Cooler, unlike the H100i it IS customizable, and comes with Barb fittings and filling port on the Rad, you could indeed add a Reservoir or add in Mobo Block if you like.

Swiftech recommends changing out the water every few yrs as well as ensuring the Loop is kept "topped". I installed the Rad at the top of my 900D in a manner so the full port is easily accessible by removing the top dust screen.

Just another note, you do know you're going to be paying a premium for the extra 3 MB L3 Cache with the Extreme Chip....from what I've been seeing the Extreme Edition Chip OC's no better than the K Edition Chip. I picked up an Extreme Chip for X58 build yrs ago, BUT back then the Extreme Edition Chip had unlocked Multiplier and easier to push higher OC's.....somewhat justified when OC'ing.

Think you may have mentioned you already had the Chip,,,disregard if thats the case for sure ;)

Never used em before, understand they have models with higher static pressure (better for Rads), lots if folks including myself have gone with Noctua NF either F or P series.

I haven't noticed any CPU Throttling (indication of Overheating VRM), so I haven't concerned myself with any Aftermarket Cooling, with that said another plus for having your top fans as intake, as I said earlier keeps air moving over the Motherboard.

When it comes to setting up I'll ask how to setup a push pull config. My last rig was a Q6600 lol. All I did was find a pure copper cooler and alot of high cfm fans.

Under Case Mods Gallery section look for my Thread Corsair 900D, some pics there showing the H320 with Noctua push/pull config.

Procyon II - 900D n Swiftech H320

What Fan Controller would you recommend to keep all these fans together.
