Here's what I'm getting/got:
'77 bonneville heatercore
DD TDX
DD Mave4 gpu
DD D5 pump
10' 1/2" Tygon tubing
DD fillport
T-line fitting

It's all going in/on a CM Stacker 810. I think the best place for the rad is on top of the case. I need help in placement of the pump, fillport, and T-line. Theres an attatched pic of what I'm thinking so far.

Hi Urufu,

The sticky Cyrix recommended will help you with general placement of pump, etc.

Regarding what you show, my suggestion is to move your radiator from the case's top to its rear, put a fan where you have your radiator now (but inside the case), and have them both exhausting--that's what I did.

My reasoning is hot air rises, and your processor is probably near the top rear, so that's where much of your hot air ends up. Getting that hot air out of your case is great, but blowing it through your radiator is not-so-great. So the combo I suggest gives you the best of both worlds.

In my setup, I accidentally blocked my top exhaust vent (Windoze XP disk), and case temps soared, even though I'm using a very low flow fan on the top. So it seems it's doing its job.

Hope this helps.

I appologize for not explaining myself better, I'm very familiar with how the traditional WC setup works. I'm asking for more precise suggestions, i.e. "since your rad is up here you shoud put X here" etc. Like, where would be a good place to put my T-line seeing as the rad will actually be the highest point in the loop? I have plenty of room in the case for everything but the '77 heatercore (it's exatly 1/16th in. to wide to fit inside the drive rails in front ) so If I should place my pump somewhere besides the floor of the case thats doable. Is having the radiator so high in the loop going to be a problem for the D5 pump? Will I have trouble filling and bleeding with the rad at the top (btw, it won't fit on the back, it interferes with the wires)? I've seen a lot of rigs with the T-line at the bottom of the case right in front of the pump, is this sufficient or is it a bad idea? Stuff like that....

any particular reason your not using a res instead of a t-line? Resevoirs tend to be easier to use to fill and bleed.

I agree...I found my res to be a total waste of money and a pain in the ass.
