Hey all, so I'm currently putting together my first custom loop in the Corsair 540, but I'm having some issues.

I got a combo pump/res and frankly it just doesn't fit. It's a XSPC Photon 170 D5. Has anyone gotten this anywhere inside this case? I'm at a loss, and quite frustrated.

Also, how long should I leak test for (assuming I can find a spot for this)?

Horizontally, under or above the GPU?

A week or so ago I switched a stock fan I had mounted in the top from intake to exhaust. When I did that it developed the nasty top panel vibration noise. I took it apart today to put some Dyna mat extreme I had lying around on the mounting points of the fan. Seems to have done the trick so far.

While I was at it I thought I'd take a shot at making a bottom filter. Time will tell how well it works I guess.

I cut the frame from an old lid for a storage bin. Glued the magnetic strips to it then stretched the nylon over it.

I put a 150 Multi-Z res strait up on the flip side. A RTD temp sensor is tapped to the res.
Used some general purpose brackets from a hardware store, drill, and paint.
A shorter res would be better. yours might have to be tilted to fit.




My 280mm 45mm thick rads block cable access to MB.
So I have extras pre-installed and just coil them up.

I did the loop first and ran it, with an old beefy 12v power supply.
When the ROG MB finally shipped I put the my pretested electronics in.

Apologize for the terrible photos once i get my camera back i'll take some better photos.

Hey NinoDukez, quick question, where did you mount the Photon 170 pump/res? I'm having issues finding enough room for it. A pic of it would be great!
