If you want to put the rad below the compartment with fans on the top and bottom it should fit, depending on the size of your motherboard. I have an RX360 and I have 6 GT's in push/pull; it's a little tight around the ram but I fit them all in nonetheless. Since the EX is smaller it should fit.

I have 3 fans on top of the radiator, so there is a push/pull system going on in there.
And yes, I plan on re-doing the waterloop, I feel like I have 1m too much tubing in there.


What is the reasons for the pump at the bottom of the case?
Other than, its retarded at its current position =p

You don't have to put the pump at the bottom of the case but you need to keep it at least below the reservoir. It's convenient to put it at the bottom of your case because it can be attached to the case so it won't move around if you tip/transport your case at all.

/agree

You don't want the pump to struggle to get water at the input because it can cause cavitation (bad) when you are trying to bleed the air out of the loop. It will also bleed much easier if the res is above the rest of the stuff in your loop.

Thanks, currently the pump is below the reservoir.
Was just thinking, since my triple radiator is on top of the case, as seen in the photo, would that not be quite a lot of pressure to push the liquid there?


Also, what would be the best way to arrange my system in terms of flow.
P.S- I ordered new tubes, and some 90° fittings, in order to make the system look cleaner.

Can the Hard drive front end bays move up in the HAF x case?

be careful using 90s in your loop. The more you have in the more stress is put on the pump to push water through it.

And if your talking about the xdock hotswap bays. Umm crap make me pull my case apart and look.......... on the XM they are solid part on the front case. You can buy a 5.25 bay for the top area where you have the optical drive and keep it out of the way. and ditch the cage put the pump down there for stability reasons. And yes it does look kinda retarded where its at. Plus I can see it now. knock your case and the pump lands square on the gpu and fries it or bounces and hits the mobo in the wrong place and it gushes water all over your pc.

Edit: forgot ask are you just using distilled water and ptnuke in there or do you have a special coolant in it?

Servers too busy right now.

The pump is screwed into place there by 4 screws right now.
And it is a premixed liquid.
