That will be the gpu?

If for instance I have to completely remove the bracket is it still possible to mount the bracket straight onto the chassis behind the bracket?

Got the Swiftech MicroRes, XSPC D5 pump top, and some tubing in today. Tomorrow I plan to drain my loop to install all of that and hopefully my R9 290X block will be in.

Anyone here use the Swiftech MicroRes? I am planning where I want to put it now. Many possibilities...

And it looks like the R9 290X with a gpu block will fit with the reservoir bracket. I haven't tested yet, but the stock aircooler takes up some extra room. Not sure if that has been mentioned before.

By the way.... to check out my in-progress Enthoo Primo build log, CLICK HERE. biggrinsmiley.gif

I'll probably duplicate the build log here when it's complete, but for now I can only keep up with the log in one place, and I spend more time on the ROG forum than anywhere else.

Is it worth having a fan in the bottom front intake if I have the 480 Monsta in p/p? About 90% is covered by the rad and fans.

Also, in regards to loop order how does this look?

Res - pump - 240 - 480 - 420 - CPU - GPU - end at res.

Newegg said the classy is 11" x 5.94" .... that's about 0.5" too big for bracket.... I'll have some pics up in a minute.... I think the pics will help a bit....that's the 10.5" Asus DCII 780's w/ EK WB's







That's the EK-RES 3 -250 and there's about 2-3 mm of space between the res and the PCB / there's about 12-13mm between the res and the bottom of the 5.25 bays. If I didn't fit, I was gonan stack two Ek 150s.... there's a thread on it

http://www.overclock.net/t/1439280/stacking-reservoirs

Anoither confirmation:

The Bitspower aquapipe does mount in the EK Reservoirs .... at least this one does

OK, now I need help with one..... Here's my drain line on the underside of an Alphacool 280 Rad at bottom of enthoo..... worked out just perfect.




Well almost .... meybe it just needs some working in but getting the female disconnect off when ya can't really hold on to the other side is a PITA .... the 30mm extensions tends to unscrew....

Now I ciouls just as easily go the other way under the HD cages but remember....that's the "wall side" of the case. What I really need is one of these



That's a 1/2" wire saddle ... the male QD is 24mm so a 1" shud work fine .... anyone know where I can find one ?

Anyone have another suggestion ?

@JackNaylorPE

Thanks for the info dude. Definitely shall prove useful.

I'm looking at the Xspc d5 photon res/pump mounted on the bottom combo. Only because I think it looks pretty good and makes my life easier than having a pump in the back compartment. Would this fit onto the backplate/chassis if I remove the backplate?

Thanks.

Has anyone mounted yet a 480mm XT45 in p/p on top?
I would like to hear/see some experiences with this rad and the Enthoo Primo, because I am still deciding whether to order the 480mm XT45 or the slimmer 480mm ST30 to have more clearance on top.

I'd probably use Loctite Threadlocker Blue 242 on the threads between the QDC and the extension, and the extension and the 90 deg rotary. I use it a lot at work and always have some handy at home. It's the loctite that disassembles with hand tools when you need to, but holds until then. Alternatively, you could use loctite red instead, and that would hold for sure, but you may not be able to get the fittings apart later on without a couple pair of vice grips / channel locks and some serious elbow grease. I definitely wouldn't use loctite of any kind on the threads of the 90 going into the rad, but between fittings that's what I'd use to keep them from turning when I didn't want them to, but I'd still be able to get them apart if/when need be. You can get Loctite blue or red at any decent auto parts store.

EDIT:
If you'd rather use a 'wire saddle' like you had pictured, maybe look for a "P clamp", though the largest I found were 3/4". Not sure if that's big enough for your needs.

I have a 420mm XT45 in the top which is slightly wider. I have not test fitted the moterboard yet, but it doesn't look like it will be a problem. I believe I read earlier in the thread you could fit the UT60 in there depending on your motherboard.
