It's theoretically possible, but I would strongly advise you weigh the risk versus the initial cost of replacing the cooler. It will be hard to have complete trust in that connection and if it is anywhere near the GPU or CPU socket, it seems like a bad gamble. There is an additional problem of replacing this things without losing all the coolant and no designated way to add more. You might be able to keep it balanced if you already have it uninstalled from the system and prevent further loss, but once again you now have something of a questionable device. In most cases, I am not sure these AIO coolers are worth drastic resuscitation measures.

Throw away a $100 cooler because a $.50 plastic barb is broken, got it.:roll:

 

Does no one here modify anything? am I on the wrong forum for this question? Is there no one out there that has spares of these?

 

If you add a resevoir to the loop you can most certainly bleed the air out of the loop. Do all in one cooler defy the laws of physics? If I "rebuild" this cooler using "factory" parts what is not to trust about it?

 

I am sorry to put it in words this way, maybe I really should dispose of this thing and buy another.

You didn’t state which model, so we don’t know which of the two OEM providers made it. If it can be obtained, it won’t be $0.50 and often the parts are proprietary. You will probably need to look at general vendors who sell water cooling parts and try to find an equivalent size.

 

Oh, you want to add an additional reservoir, more tubing, two more connection points? Why didn’t you say so? How about a pump and a radiator too? Also not $0.50. If you want to try and Frankenstein your AIO, be my guest. However, I suspect you have never tried to take one of the units apart before or you would be slightly less flippant in your tone.

Im not tryin to get into it with you honestly. Sometimes sarcasm doesn't come across well in the written world, and I apologize for my tone.

 

It is a H100i v2, and yes I have taken it apart, fully and reassembled it only to snap the barb.. you may call me what you want.

 

Please I'm only trying to locate a replacement barb, if I have to I will go as far as 3d printing one. If I can provide any more information I will, thank you

 

Pictures for consideration

OK, so it's Asetek. See if you can get an inner and out diameter measurement for it. That is often how they are listed. Unfortunately, I still think you will have a hard time (if not impossible) sourcing actual Asetek parts. However, for that type of barb, I think it is irrelevant. Right diameter (inner and outer) should do it.

 

The real problem is these things were never intended to be taken apart and reassembled. There are worse things to have to do (like taking off the cold plate), but lots of very soft screws, plenty of glue, and pieces that seem to want to tear rather than come off. Sometimes I think the glue is what's actually holding it all together and that is the part that is concerning once you get to the reassembly process.

 

This came to mind from the last time someone was determined to do this. Looks like it didn't end well. The barb 5 pictures down looks promising. I'll see if I can find something better later.
