Ditto. My Enthoo build has been underway (in one form or another) since August, and PHYSICALLY in-progress for at least the last 3 weeks....and it's still not quite complete (figured out I was 2 angled adapters short to complete my loop, so those 2 are being express shipped to me as we speak).

Hopefully (fingers crossed!) I should get my loop completely finished, filled, and up and running this weekend (since I work on Friday).

At least no one can fault us for jumping into this without thinking it through, huh? lol

But yes you had the right idea which I was trying to convey.

My thoughts are to go straight from the pump over to a 240 mounted on the side bracket, with the ports are the bottom into a 90* fitting. It's a tight fit, but I think I can work something out.

If you have the standard pump top then yeah you are limited to the inlet being on the front and the outlet going up.
I have the alphacool variant that came with a custom acetal top, and is way more flexible as there is an inlet and outlet on both the front and top.
Its this one http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Alphacool-VPP655-G14-IG-complete-with-D5-HF-Top_20284.html

Yeah there isn't a whole lot of room on the back if you want a side mounted rad. Have you considered putting one in the front? I dont think you are limited for thickness on a 240 without the cages
You can also get away with an 240 XT45 and still have the cages in place, you just have to do some drilling for the tubes to get to the rad.
Check my build log to see how i did it if you want some ideas

The circular grommet I dont use actually. The outlet (top) of mine goes to the top 360 radiator which I wish I had redone, I can't use the side 140mm fans now because the tubing is in the way. Intake for the pump is a swiftech micro res.



Same, mine is by far the loudest, and its actually pretty quiet, it just stands out now that there is no fan noise or anything.

Wondering if i should take the pump off the bracket and try a shoggy sandwich?
Or would i be wasting my time as pumps are just noisy like that.
If i had to describe the noise it would be like a high-ish pitched hum, completely constant but still there

And yes my loop is fully bled, I've triple checked that!

Mine is the same way. I imagine the pump bracket is the best as the noise comes from the vibrations. Mine is still not loud by any means, I just happen to have a very quiet room right now so I can hear the pitches clearly from the pump.

Finally decided to order mine! Should be here in a few days! Looking forward to switch my build from my stryker into the primo!

So if the main culprit of the noise is the vibrations, do you think changing to a shoggy sandwich would help?
Anyone had any experience with them?

I don't know what a shoggy sandwich is lol. But there is a hefty amount of rubber for absorption on the pump bracket. When I ran with the bay res it was almost unbearable unless the pump was slowed to lowest setting. With the pump bracket I dropped it about half way and it's not as noticeable.

Ah hehe, its one of these, apparently they're really good at killing the vibration in pumps

Cool, I might not go for it then, if the included pump bracket is pretty good
Its my 1st wc build, so i dont really have a point of reference for how quiet things should be. I just wanted to avoid buying it and then there wasn't really any noticeable difference

The D5 is supposed to the quietest pump of the bunch. I'm gonna guess that you guys have no bubbles in your loop. Also you dont have to run your pump at a setting of 5. Try lower settings and see if that helps.

The shoggy sandwich will help as well.

Yeah I dropped the speed down to setting 2 which should still be enough to push flow. Its much quieter now but not as quiet as I hoped.
