Default Adding a second duall rad to the h20 220 compact?

Would anyone know if adding a second dual rad to the H20 220 compact kit would do any harm or hinder the performance of the apogee drive pump? Would the pump be able to push the fluid through the loop at ease?


thanks... any thoughts welcome..

Go right ahead. The Apogee Drive is actually just a modified MCP350 pump that's used by lots of watercoolers, so it won't mind an extra radiator.

You can use a normal rad it is fine i think your kit came with a rad/res combo.

Good to go, my 350 pump is pushing 3 120 rads, a bay res, apogee GT cpu block, and 2 koolance 8800 GTX blocks.

Way better cooling from 1 to 2 rads, about another 25% moving to the 3 rads.

Q9450 @ 3.4 is mid 30's idle and upper 40's at load, gpu's are 50c idle and 58c load.
