No one sees how it looks haha.
Alternatively you could cut the bottom HD cages out and flat plate the bottom, or use a union mount and mount the res/pump combo to the front radiator. ColdZero also makes a plate to lay on top of the hard drive cages to create a false bottom, you might be able to work with that also.
Hehe I figured that HDD was there because it had to be. :-)
I was thinking a mounting plate myself, I think that's the best route. Just a flat thin black piece of metal will do, I'll drill my own holes and mount it to the case with the pump already mounted.
Finished my last order from Dazmode today. Last until I swap out the CPU cooling AIO. Granted it's a great AIO. It's an H110i, bested only by the EK Predator but still.... it's an AIO and I have another D5 sitting here waiting to be modded and thrown into its own loop.
Thanks for the reply bro.

Unfortunately, the whole reason why I didn't just order one in the first place is because Corsair doesn't seem to think Canadian customers should be upset about having to pay $150 shipped for a windowed side panel.
They don't stock the Canadian store, only choice is the US store and by the time you factor in shipping/tax & border fees it's $154 Canadian dollars. I'm not even kidding.
I explained to the Corsair rep that the amount put down for the worth of the item ($100) wouldn't cover a new panel from them even if I did get the insurance money from UPS. I'm pretty sure at this point he thinks I'm lying to him. I don't know, I can't think of any other reason why he wouldn't respond to me.
If I was a rep and I did something nice for a customer and it was damaged by the company I used to ship it with I'd be really pissed with that company and chew them out.
I wish there was something that could be done. I'm not paying $150 for a side panel.... sux.
