So, I'm thinking I might swap my cpu cooling to a 240mm from a 120mm pump. And I'm wondering, can I use the same cpu block mount that is currently being used on my cpu already and just reconnect it to a different pump and fans? Or do I just have to put on a different one entirely?

Your current 120mm is an AIO?

And the new potential 240mm as well?

They all come as one unit. You can't mix and match parts.

If they're both older units, it might actually be doable, because the manufacturers used fittings and parts you'd find with custom loops on some, making it possible to service them.
Almost all of the newer models have all but abandoned that.


So it depends on what the 2 coolers are.

Yeah they ain't new, thanks anyways though, just had to check to be sure.

What is the problem you are trying to fix?
It would be helpful for cooling issues to list the make/model of your current cooler, cpu, case and graphics card.
120 and 240 will refer to the size of the radiators not the pump.
