Yet another help me water cool. - Page 6

post #51 of 67
I can't seem to edit my posts from work, but this is what I bought to replace the power supply for external testing:

Not sure if it's worth it, me being a total noob, but it made sense to me.

Understandable. I was just trying to save you a few extra bucks. They are nice for testing if you have a suspected faulty PSU and want to check the different rails for malfunction. But in my case where the only thing I use it for is when I refill my loop, a jump wire works just fine

Not sure if it's worth it, me being a total noob, but it made sense to me.

it all depends on how your pump gets power. most times it is via a 3 fan pin prong, therefore you will now need a 4pin molex to 3 pin fan connector. some cases come with these on their case fans, and some fan packets even come with these.

but who knows you may be lucky enough to have a 4pin molex pump.

Thanks for the tip, I didn't even think to check how the D5 pumps I ordered get power! I had ASSumed it was molex, DOH! Gotta get that converter if I want to test fans externally anyways.

Sorry for the thread clutter Chad!

Starters, this drain valve i was going to be going with myself, yet a few things stopped me.
- was not clear on how easy the drain valve was. as far as i see it you unscrew that cap and your fluid is draining already. no chance to add a hose or anything.
- another thing when i was buying is that i read a post where some one made 4 rigs with same rad, this drain valve, and pump. sadly he said all 4 drain valves inside coating pealed off and dissolved the rad from inside out, and shred ed the pump. Dont get too to concerned it was only the one person, but he would of had to buy the part before reviewing. Also everyone else in the reviews luv it. haven't herd anything bad about it aside the one guy.


As for case, i got a Coolermaster 932 HAF advanced. (advance = usb 3.0, 5.25" bay, nothing special)

but i would suggest the Coolermaster Trooper. its what i really should of gotten.
http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/Trooperwindow/
I would of gotten this because
-Huge side window great for showing off the inside loops
-Massive storage room,
--9x 5.25" bays
--4x 2.5" HDD/SSD rack
--6x 5.25 Bays can be used with the fanned HDD inserts making 8 HDD storage.
--- These bay inserts can be rotated 90degrees 180 dregrees to poin the hard drives towads any way you need.
--- Each bay consumes 3x 5.25" giving you 4 HDD
-- There is a built in 2.5" HDD/SSD dock.
-Built in Fan control button on top of case.
-FAN FILTERS!!!!! a must need for any case.
-MASSIVE CPU BACK PANNEL (the space behind the installed mobo that allows you to work on the socket brackets for aftermarket coolers/watercoolers)

Overall it is a case to have.

Here is a YouTube of it. well the un windowed version but he is detailed. (un windowed is just a side pannel difference)

May I suggest a CaseLabs SM8 or M8? smile.gif Amazing cases (although costly), but they are definitely worth the money IMHO. thumb.gif
