As for the top 5.25" bay, I didn't plan on using it in the first place.


This said, you guys convinced me: tonight I'll pull the trigger and order the 480mm XT45 radiator. biggrin.gif

Sometimes its nice to get a verbal confirmation from others, and I like that to personally. You should be able to slide in your 360 rad from the 5.25" drive bay. thumb.gif

I'm also not keen on drilling holes in the case or chopping up the res bracket.

Use the tape of the gods - http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/3m-4010-tape.html

I have a photon 240 installed in a Dell XPS case, and those cases are heavier than anything (all solid thick aluminum construction). I can lift the whole case by just grabbing the reservoir.

The problem there is their is no "either side" ... that's why went with the P clamp design cause metal only available on one side to mount to.
Maybe make one out of a piece of strap metal. Bend the 90* and wrap it around something slightly smaller, clamp and drill. Than cut off ends, dress clean and paint or Plasti Dip if you want a rubberized finish.

Or maybe something like a 3/4 in - 1 in Steel Conduit and Pipe Hanger?

@JackNaylorPE

Thanks for the info. Having considered what you said I think I would be better of going with a separate pump to the combined combo res. Has anyone or yourself tried the primochill 240mm ctr compression res? Along with an aquacomputer pump.

Hey guys was just thinking rather than going with the d5/Photon res combo ide rather go with a single res on its own and a seperate pump mounted on the bracket in the back off the case. Would something like Primochill 240mm CTR compression tube res fit? If so are they any good?

Or even a FrozenQ Reactor Core Tube res 250mm?

Could you be so kind and say what extender + 90degree couling you used here? I am thinking about a similiar settup for draining. But then only on the other side (port 7) of my monsta 280 in the bottom.

Either i go use the qd4 or just go with a crane. Have both laying here.

There's like 1 mm clearance all the way around....the P clamps were attractive cause the smooth and thin....anything that was not a pure circle of the exact diameter wuda been problematic.... appreciate the effort tho. In the end a combination of working the QD a few time to break in that O-ring and the lock-tite did the trick..... will upload a pic as soon as phone done updating.

PROGRESS REPORT:

1. EK got me a 2nd and 3rd time..... Both Backplates for the Asus 780 water block were missing nuts..... it's all screws where the backplate and block are equal but the two end ones where there's backplate and no block (good thing no block or it wouldn't fit) need nuts or thew screw into air. Frozen offered to find and send something but I just went to HW store. Odd that they remembered ya washers but no nuts.

Then on CPU block I was disappointed to find 3 of the 4 needed washers..... FCPU immediately responded and offered to send

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18737/scr-678/

They spare / replacement ones are .80mm so I checked instructions which say 0.70 mm .... then to be sure measured what I had .... I had 0.83mm, 0.87mm and 0.98mm thick. Now I don't think it will matter much whether that 0.7 or 0.8 ..... but seems to me they oughta all be the same. FCPU overnighting me a set.

2. I am no longer a hardlining n00b.

-Finished bottom rad => Top GFX card +> Top Rad run
-............................=> Bot GFX card +> Top Rad run
-MoBo => Reservoir run

Need 2 fittings for bottom rad => Bot GFX card

Need to install CPU WB to to that

Need to do pump .... res => Pump and Pump to Bottom rad ..... haven't decided whether to use flex for any of that (vibration isolation) need to finish mounting plate.

Anyway here's a pic..... hopefully will finish this weekend.



Was lot easier than I expected ..... though lotta measure once, cut 5 times stuff....parallel loop was hard to get square.

QUESTION:

Reflection kind blocks it out but there's a bitspower fill tube inside the res at top. Unfortunately, with only one top port, I realized that one the res fills past the bottom of the tube, that air is trapped. Was thinking of adding a tee at the res outlet and coming off horizontally to a bleed valve which would be closed except for "fill time". Would use compression fitting on downstream side of valve and length of tube to get it well above the rad.

Any other ideas to get some (not all) of the air out ? Want to leave some room in there ... about half the tube length just want safely under water to quell noise. oddly when I had it by itself outta the box filled with water.... every which way I tipped it never got a drop of air out..

Looking good!
post #1489 of 18651
Have some questions for you, Jack, but no time to get into it right now. But in regards to the air getting trapped, could you unscrew the top of the res just a little so air could slowly escape? The only problem is that the fittings connected at the top are going to try to keep the cap in place, so you'd have to loosen then too. Could be a little scary if even possible. Seems a bad design feature on EK's part. I'm getting the same res but it has a single port on top with no bleed port and doesn't have a tube, so it inherently will splash water. I don't know why it didn't have a tube already built in and a bleed port instead of a single port on top... and yet the bottom has like 5 ports...

I've been eye balling this case for a while now... and it makes me drool biggrin.gif

It's got a sleek, modern look to it.
The exterior is mostly aluminium and steel.
It has incredible space, incredible features, BUCKET loads of water cooling potential and the price tag?!?!!

ermahgerd!
