Help mounting pump/res in case

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am having trouble finding out just how to mount my pump and res to the case. It is a Swiftech 655 single pump attached to a Bitspower pump top mod 150 tube. I have 2 360 rads in the front of my case where there is a UN mount attached to the bottom fan on the rad. There is no room at the bottom to fit this which is why it needs to be vertical. I have the silver Bitspower mounting plate attached to the pump mod block. But I do not know how to screw that in securely to the UN mount attached to the bottom fan on the rad as there are no screw thread holes on that bracket.

Basically, what I am wanting to know is how to mount a pump with res attached to it vertically in my case. I think I have all the right parts, but not sure and need some advice for those that have a vertical pump/res mounted in their system.

Thanks

The links to your parts only take you to the PPCs homepage. And maybe some picture of what you're trying to do would help give an idea of exactly what you are trying to do

Drill holes, make sure to use a tap first, and then screw in with the included mount (and possibly included screws).

I have edited my original post so the links now work properly. It shows the parts I am using with photos of them. Also, the Maximum PC Dream Machine 2012 has a sample photo of the same pump/res mounted like I am doing.

My case is a Mountain Mods Ascension and about $1,200 in water cooling parts so far. It is a high-end workstation build.

No, you don't understand how this all fits together. There is no need to drill any extra holes, the UN mount and pump bracket should work fine. If you look at the UN fan mount you see a long horizontal or vertical open slot (depending on how you mounted the fan) in the middle where you can "hang" or attach things to. The pump has a mount bracket and the screw holes on the pump bracket will fit just fine over the large middle opening. However, I do not know what I am missing to attach the screws so it secures to this bracket. There is nothing behind the UN mount for the screws to go into. I thought of using lug nuts to hold them in place just like case fans have, but that won't work as there is no room to do that. This is why I was thinking there is another bracket or part that attaches to this sort of fan mount.

Still needing help to find out what steps/parts I need to mount this vertically in the case. The UN Z2 mount should work along with the right screws/nuts or something to attach this. If anyone has done a single pump/res vertically in a case please tell how and what I am missing.

I managed to get a hold of someone that has done many of these setups and some youtube videos of their builds. Surprised no one chimed in that has done vertical pump/res mounts before in their WC case.

Basically, I was making it a bit too complicated than necessary. With all the parts I listed in my first post, all you need is the pump mount that comes with the Bitspower Mod Kit and the UN Z2 mount. While you can use screws and locking washers in back of the UN mount, it's not needed. Just slip the Bitspower mount through the large slot that should be in horizontal orientation on the UN mount. It will fit perfectly through there and provide a very stable base for the pump/res assembly to be used vertically in that location.

I am taking photos and keeping a build log I will post once completed.

I am planning on using the same pump res set up in my 500r, so those pics will be great help for when I try and figure out where and how I am going to mount it.

Feel free to drop me a PM and I will send you a link once I get it built and my pictures and such done. With the holidays it may be a while for that as I am working on it in my spare time as I can. I'm sure we can mount yours too now that I have things more figured out and can see what can be done better now.
