So, a while ago i was looking for dead aios, the ones i couldnt be arsed to fix have been lying in my room for way too long, currently i have a "dead" corsair h100 and h60. The H100 had a hole in the rad and the h60 had a dead pump. Ive decided to make the most custom non custom loop we've all ever seen. 600mm of radiator running in 120+240+240. 2 pumps running in series (h100i and a standard h100 pump). i am picking up a fully working H100i from @Jacks to create this monstrosity.

Heres the game plan currently
the circles are pumps and im going to use clear tubing.

Thoughts on this unholy amalgamation of water cooling?

I seriously considered doing this on a kraken x52 but I decided against it as there was almost no resources online about making custom loops from AIOs and the non-standard tubing sizes makes compatibility a nightmare. I have also been told that AIO pumps are "too weak" to run bigger loops but due to the nature of el'cheapo loops (no angled fittings or constrictive, high performance blocks) that these would be used in it shouldn't be too big of a problem.

I wouldn't personally use 2 pumps as (my logic dictates) one of them will always bottleneck the other. - I could be wrong however.

With that many radiators you should also add your gpu to the loop
