Looking to buy a Liquid Fusion V Series Res - How does it work?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Liquid Fusion V Series Res

These things just look amazing. But I am not 100% sure how to hook these up.

I already have a Swiftech MCP665 pump in a XSPC 5.25 bay res, so I would be swapping to this I guess, but I am not sure how to since the pump I have is a stand alone and didnt some with the casing.

I am also not sure how to hook the Liquid Fusion up to the case or if there was any other items I need.

Would someone that owns one of these bad boys chime in?

Ive seen a ton of build with these in them... So I figured they cant be too difficult.

If you do not have a D5 pump housing (aka Swiftech MCP655), you can buy a separate housing here with G1/4 thread. You can find some other tops/housings at FrozenCPU and Performance-PCs.

You will also need an inverter for the reservoir's CCFL, which can be found at FrozenCPU and Performance-PCs.

The reservoir itself will come with a pair of mounting clips with bolts, this might require you to drill two small holes wherever you decide to put the reservoir. Alternatively, you can buy brackets and mount the reservoir clips to those, i.e. EK-UNI Holder 50/70 - Reservoir Brackets, (UN)Designs Z2 Pump Bracket - 120mm Fan Mount, and (UN)Designs Z3 Pump Bracket - 140mm Fan Mount. You could even find some brackets at your local hardware stores or be a little creative and make some of your own. thumb.gif

Note: It might be also possible to mount the reservoir mounting clips with strong velcro tape, double-sided tape, cleaver use of zip-ties, etc. wink.gif

Thanks for.the.descriptive post!

What about that.inverter they said.is.needed for the.light?
How.does.all that.work?

So I just.get the.housing.for.the d5 pump and then run a tube to the fusion?
I also saw they make a top for the d5 u can connect.it.directly to.the fusion.for.like $35-40.. probably not worth it tho right?

Yes, you would treat the pump as a separate water-cooling part with G1/4 threads (comes with most housing and tops) and would need to purchase a pair of fittings for it. At that point you just run tubing between the reservoir and pump. If you where thinking of the FrozenQ Acetal D5 / MCP655 Pump Mount Bracket - Liquid Fusion Dual Bay Reservoir it is for the FrozenQ Liquid Fusion Dual Bay Reservoirs not the Cylinder reservoirs. I am unaware of any direct pump mounts for the FrozenQ Cylinder Reservoirs, but you could use a double-threaded male non-rotary/rotary fittings (i.e. BP and XSPC to name a few) to join them together.

Also, you can get different clip mounts for the reservoir that let you mount directly to a radiator (or appropriately spaced fan/fan mounts) from FrozenQ themselves (not sure who else sells these specific mounts).

The inverter you hook up with power from your PSU and your FrozenQ cylinder reservoir should come with necessary cable to hook itself up to an inverter. Most inverters are packaged with double-sided tape, adhesive backing, Velcro with adhesive backing so you can about mount/stash that anywhere in the case.

I guess I got confused with the mounting d5 pieces and thought it would connect to the bottom.

So I would no longer need the dual bay res.. and I would need to find a spot to sit the d5...

Now that i am going to get the housing for it, is there anything I need so it doesnt vibrate? Like a stand?

You can always buy a pump mounting/decoupling pad of any kind. Most of them aren't much more then piece(s) of foam/rubber(s) sandwiched by double-sided adhesive (sometimes with Velcro) so they are fairly easy to make even with a pair of scissors and supplies from hardware/general stores. wink.gif

However, you can get D5 Pump Foam Mounting Pad, Phobya Noise Destructor V.1 for Pump Decoupling (FrozenCPU), Alphacool Laing Silencer Set, and-or the Aquacomputer Shoggy Sandwich.
