First experiance with costom loop water cooling. so please go easy on me biggrin.gif
well i did get some oh no, and OH NOES PANIC!! moments, like the reservoir outlet should be higher, but its ok since the pump is a combo reservoir/pump/block... so it still got coolent and wont go dry. i had a mayor leak. due to i forgot to thigten the fill cap on the pump when i drained it coolent all over frown.gif good thing this coolent aint conductive still it made me panic.

240 copper rad, push pull noctua fans copper reservoir copper fittings



the coolent got pink due to my low quality cell phone camera tongue.gif red and copper thumb.gif


as you can see. the pump still got plenty of coolent in it. even theres some air in the tube. i ran it on 12v few min. its much better then this now.
im running the pump on 7v still a great flow and not that noisy compare to 12v. but i love this pump due its noice its a heavy worker.

Im confused!! in my AI Suite II it says temps are 50 celcius but in realtemp it shows something else. oh when im on ide its around 29 celcius are these ok temps?
but what temp software should i look at?



my ram got little hot so i found some fans i had from another project. zip ties, soulder, bent akrylic. rubber band or spring. and woila.


in the future:
costom reservoir that sits higher or take the rads outlet direct to pump.
bigger tubes!!
remover the hotswap board.
remove the ssd rack
add another copper rad.
make a tube for draining im siphoning for now

no idea if i want leds or paintjob would be nice to have something then these uglie noctua colors tongue.gif

can i join the club? biggrin.gif

AI Suite on my ASUS board reads the CPU temp from the socket rather than the die or whatever its called rolleyes.gif I used HWMonitor so i can see it easier.

Yep, A I suite reads socket temp. Strangely enough my core temp is higher than socket sometimes, possibly due to the 230mm fan I have mounted as intake. Otherwise I assume those temps are ok as I have an amd fx 6300 that at 5 ghz, gets to around 63 core temp at full load.

yep. Why not, it runs fine. If it dies ill get a new one. Increased it based on what it could do thermally.

is it possible to remove the hard drive hot swap bay cage? i only use ssds, so i dont need it. it will also help with cable management. will the doors stay in place tho?

Yes it is possible.

No the "doors" will not stay without the cage. You would need to take them apart and attach them to the front bezel if you are wanting to keep that look.

Perhaps Sascha can chime in with thoughts on how to mod that space since he's done it ... a few times IIRC. =P

Yeah I can. To remove the hdd cage, you first have to remove the front panel. Then from the front of the case you must drill our the 4 rivets (with a 3mm or 4mm drill) then 4 more rivets from the bottom. Now you can remove the hdd cage. To cover the hole again, give me a bit to think about it. Now first to bed and later I give you a few ideas.

Not really a reply to this post as much as an add on. I picked up the MCP35x pump and reservoir on a last minute bid off of ebay and looking for input as to good mounting locations for it. I am also considering mounting it in a similar fashion as your diagram using a pair of 50mm mounting clamps for the reservoir attached to the inside of the front wall to the left of the fans

The pump would be attached to the bottom of the reservoir and just kinda hanging in the air. Outside of that I'm not sure where else to put it other than the outside, which I'm not liking.

does the pump have to be attached to the reservoir?
I mounted my Res horizontally against the side panel and mounted my pump underneath below it
