Alphacool XT45s, both the 240 and 280, and Bitspower 1/2" fittings, all the way around. I mean the space is just NUTS in there!!!

It's just not all gonna fit, man! sad-smiley-002.gif
There's just no F'in way; the Bitspower fittings are too big, the tubing (I wanted bigger, even) is huge, the radiators are thick as they are, and I swear that the prototypes they showed pics of were actually S5s, and they duped us. kookoo.gif

Ok, calm down, breathe...

I'll post up what I mean here in a bit, when I get a chance to edit out a bit!

Thanks - T

Mine is going to be pretty tight, but you've got even more stuff you are trying to cram in there. Dual pumps right? 250ml res?!? Haha. thumb.gif

OK, Here's the mock location shots I was promising. Again, terrible lighting, terrible off-white towels, but I'm doing my best until I can go shopping tonight or tomorrow!


The spacing just looks a little too tight for the size of the pump / block, and the res on top. Also, given the fan (temporarily) mounted in the back, I'm wondering whither the 280 has enough length in the horizontal to fit now...











These last two are of the Bitspower res seated softly on the Koolance pump block's lock ring.







Obviously the two don't see eye to eye, and there's a gap. Anyone? I'm guessing that's not a safe thing, even with an o-ring in place.
Suggestions? I'm guessing one will be to replace the Bitspower with a Koolance res....


Appreciate for all the help!

Thanks - T

Thinking about that, but I really want this to seat so it can stand up in one unit...
I think I'll just look at the Koolance tubes for a minute...

either go with the koolance tubs or go with the bitspower pump setup. I wouldn't mix the two.

If it were me I would go with the koolance setup I like the pump style connection for them with the tube better for your build.

Keep up the good work.
