    I guess it's cooling your CPU only. If yes, you should not get any improvement: 3.120 for the CPU only gives you a very low delta already, around 2/3C (assuming you use 3 fans).
    Adding a second 240 would reduce the delta by maybe 0.5C.

    Any amout of rad will help. But your reaching the point of diminishing returns.

    Now your being limited by the block and pump of the H80, you add rad and hose, it reduces flow rate. It's gotta be pretty weak to start with.

    Adding another rad could decrease your flow rate to... bad, temps will climb.
    I want my old title back.

    Will update later.

    +1 conumdrum.
    I tryed adding an h100 rad to my h60 and it just heated more partly because even when i submerged it to fill the system it still trapped air.
    your running a res so your should purge.
    having said that,
    for the price the corsair coolers have a pretty good water block and pretty good rad.
