AIO with external pump?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've bought Fractal Design Celsius S36, it was cheap but broken - but so cheap that it was cheaper than aliexpress 360mm radiator :D Nice thing is that it has a standard G 1/4" connectors, so with broken pump I've thought that I can get rid of pump impeller, get some fittings, hoses, cheap pump with reservoir and get this thing running - or maybe without touching block assembly, just connect another pump, leave stock alone and go. But... will it work? For starters I'll of course try to repair broken one, not sure how at this moment but I'll figure something out. If anything else fails I'll have at least cheap radiator, but I want to run it as cheap as possible.

Wait, so you bought it broken for parts?


And I've thought about doing the same thing with mine, but mine works so I haven't actually done it.  Just remember that only the fittings at the radiator are actually fittings.  At the pump those "fittings" are cosmetic.

Yep. Cheaper than cheap aliexpress radiator, so I think that I hadn't overpaid.


I'm just wondering if it'll possible to reuse standard pump/block combo as water block alone with another, external pump like chinese SC600 with 5,25" res(good discount atm) or Magicool DCP450.
