$96.50 for both ends ..... works nice tho...can even set it up to flush system.
I had the Bits in my original build..... saw some "I have a Bits and it's leaking and no one retuirns my calls / e-mails" posts .... switched to the EK ...also figured the white would be anice chnage to the black everything else and now that it's in, glad I did.
Also, I'm not sure if your pump would have mounted to the included mount anyway, but if the reason you didn't use the included pump mount was because of the placement and/or the low height, I figured out another way/place to mount the included pump bracket. When you remove the bottom drive cage (as I know you did since you wanted your pump down in that area just like I do), it slides off a bracket that's mounted below it at the bottom of the case. Then you'd normally unscrew it and leave it aside with the drive cage. However, it has some holes in it and it turns out the pump bracket (which is removable) can be screwed onto the lower drive cage bracket. I'm not sure if this was an intended design or a coincidence that the holes are the exact correct spacing, but you can securely mount the pump bracket there. There are actually several holes along it, so you can position the bracket (and therefore the pump) in several places (meaning from side to side. Either closer to the windowed side of the case or more towards the opposite side). This puts the pump in the perfect spot down there (especially if you have a tube res on the res bracket and a lower radiator as your first component after the pump) and also brings the pump an inch or so higher off the floor of the case.
I did mount on the pump mount .... on two of them actually. And that's exactly what I did..... that is an "designed" alternate location for the pump mount and is shown in the Enthoo videos and in the manual.
See page 29.... it shows the layout as you have described above and how to mount it on the HD stand as you have described. The method of illustration is a bit poor as instead of showing a tru "plan view " looking down, they've tipped up the HD stand to look like it's in a vertical position...... which makes it confusing.
But, yes that is exactly what I have done..... but my pump is twice the size of the pump bracket ... only half of it fits on the bracket...... But the HD mount where the sliders are (again see page 29 of manual) will fit two pump brackets. I received a donation of a 2nd pump bracket from a dashing and generous young man who frequents this thread ...
.... and mounted two of them together on the HD bay sliders.
But again, this pump is huge and takes up almost the full mounting area of TWO pump brackets.....It's 5" long, 3" wide and 4" high
