    I am thinking to modify my corsair h70 loop to also cool the fusion block water block on my maximus extreme. I think the pump is strong enough to push the water in the fusion block and it will not degrade its lifespan. I know that if i modify the corsair h70 i will void the warranty but i want to cool my chipset by simply include it in the loop. what is the right piping to use for this setup/mod? 3/8" ?

    Please see the uploaded photo for better understanding!

    thank you!

    You cant mod standard 1/4 or 3/8 or 7/16 - 1/2 on that, you are really out of luck.

    They dont use straight water in these either, and theres a possiblity of a huge leak. The only way to feed water back in to the kit is to directly feed it to the pump as well. No way to bleed it or anything. (bleed = get air out.)

    I've seen one build with already modded H50 like that (adding NB block). You must include reservoir in the loop (to get air out of the loop). Modding H50 or H70 without reservoir is impossible.
