And yes, boy do they scratch easy. I already ruined one biggrin.gif (of course I wasnt using the right wrench at all..one of those lock whernches or whatever. but an adjustable works fine.) But for $3.99 a fitting at PPC I couldnt go wrong, plus I think they look really nice.

One question I have, I have a dcp 4.0 pump and that I might be using and have been looking everywhere for mounting hardware (somthing I might have to make myself) But I did come across xnines phantom 820 build and I believe he used the same pump and like the way he mounted his here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1321537/buildlog-project-12-phantom-820-finished/50#post_18632270 (third post down, 11th picture I believe) Anyone know if he made that custom or bought it? Maybe if Xnine is reading he can chime in? I did find a mounting kit on EK's website but its just a flat plate, not "L" shaped

maybe he bent that flat plate into an "L". If it were me I'd just make the mount myself so it fit where I needed it too. just my 2cents.

Hmm I may do that, another thing I was thinking was to just use the 3m "tape of the gods" to "stick" it to the side of the case (with some kind of anti-vibration material in between the case and pump if needed) would that stuff be strong enough to hold up the pump? Anyone know how much weight it's rated to hold? I'm sure it's on the package but I'm @ work on my cell so can't check. I thought I read "up to" 3 or 4 pounds which should be enough but would vibration loosen it over time? Maybe a combo of 3m and long skinny zip ties to wrap around pump to case? But that might look sloppy. Any ideas? I'm going to have a 240mm rad on bottom of case and have a longer psu (PCP&C MK Silencer III 850w 170mm I believe) so I really doubt there will be room for the pump between them and definitely don't want to just set it on top of the rad. (I've seen other set ups like that). Thanks for any info and help guys, you all have already helped a lot! Sorry about punctuation /grammar /spacing, typing all this from my cell at work. (forum posting sucks on a cell.. Lol)

Wow.. Yeah. That's not 4010 is it? Up to 20 pounds.. Damn. Is that permanent? Would the vibration from the pump still loosen it over time? Looks like it's time for a trip to home Depot/Lowes before I start.

Its not permanent but it has a wicked grip. that is from lowes. I use it on my SSD and side door window. IDK how it would fair against a pump. I have never seen the tape fail and with my 2 year smashing the side window on her ride on car. lol

You have two options scientifically proven

A. That looks like a reflect of the red light on the acrylic and reflecting on the gpu thumb.gif

Awesome! One question, I have the matte black 810, if I used that tape on the inside of the case is it sticky/strong enough to remove the paint from the inside of the case if I went to remove the tape?

it may in fact pull the paint off. I have seen it take paint off before.
