hows the noise level from the front intake fans? is there a major difference with the swapped grill?

My ears cannot tell the difference. Honestly the loudest thing that I have at the moment in my build is the pump (you have to put your ear next to it to hear it). I cannot hear the fans at all, and the phanteks fans are of great quality and build. But to simply answer your questions, I cannot tell any difference between the noise level with the slotted grill in place.

what bayres do you have?

Normally the bay res'es come with damping inlays with threads for them



I know that xspc dual d5 bayres and ekwb's resses are damped for the mounting, so everything sums up to your preference and how comfortable you are with filling from either way (ek bayres are useless to fill'n'bleed but the xspc one i used for a 420 rad and a 240 rad and a cpu block, had the inlet far enough to the front so youll not need excessive amount of tubing to get around filling it) but if you get a separate filling port bayreses would be a breeze any brand thumb.gif

I will go for an xspc dual d5 bayres for this case since it'll be more stealth than anything

I gave a little thought to going with a bay/res, but I'm dead-set on using rigid acrylic tubing - already bought more than I'll need - and I thought I might run into issues trying to fill it if the tubing wouldn't let me pull it out even just a little bit. That, and I've read a few horror stories where quite a few people claimed to have problems with some models leaking and whatnot, makes me leery to go with a bay/res.

Now I'm looking into mounting the new xspc photon pump/res on that res bracket.

http://www.xs-pc.com/water-pumps/d5-photon-270-reservoirpump-combo



The photon res's are fat - the res itself is 75mm iirc, and that pump/res is listed as 85mm wide, I assume that's at the pump ring - its widest point - so putting that res there would be a no-go for many GPUs, but I'll be running reference GTX760s that have a short 6" pcb so I should have no such problems running them in sli in any slots they'll fit and still using that res bracket with even the fattest of res's mounted to it.

I'm really hoping that 270 will fit there but it's 350mm tall so if it will it'll be a tight fit, hopefully leaving a little room between it and the rads/fans top and bottom. I've asked Jesse at themodzoo if he can get me an inside measurement of the case from the bottom to the top so I can figure out if it'll work or not. If so I'm ordering it right away. lol

Watch out for Maelstrom dual pump dual bay res. It's finding many cases it doesn't quite fit into, 900D being one of them. Have to dremel the case.

If enthoo has... idk what to call them... Prongs on the drive bay's, it may interfere with bayres.

That Photon res looks so darn good in my opinion... If I didn't already have a bay and tank I would pick one up.

Thanks for the info on the reservoirs, I have both the XSPC dual bay res and the XSPC tank res for a D5. I suppose for purposes of bleeding the loop the bay res would be the better option.

& here I thought bay res was the harder type to bleed.

Me too, I love ease of bleeding a tube res.

the xspc one i have used was a breeze.. took 15 min with 3 stops for filling more water in the tank and let out excessive air, that being said, i bled from my ek dcp 2.2 pumpres combo in my sig rig and im feeling more comfortable with filling a tube res than bayres with a full bottle of liquid tongue.gif

I'm sure a tube res is easier, but between the tank and bay I have now, I have found the bay res to be easier. Possibly because it sits higher allowing the air to reach the top quicker.
