Should a fillport be at the top of any point in a loop, or does it just help?
Cos I have a tube res that I'm hoping to mount on the res bracket, and I was just going to fill it up with one of these through the top

Have I missed something or will that work?

My loop is running on about half a gallon of distilled water.

I'm thinking no pouring.....

1. Buy my gallon of DW ..... pour 750 ml of DW along with 250 ml of Mayems pastel into my "jug".....shakey shakey

2. Screw in free end of tube from jug into G1/4 ..... screw bleed tube into bleeder port

3. Open valve on jug, crack valve on bleeder

4. Read posts on OCN till water level stops dropping.

6. Toggle pump on and off till bleeder tube shows fluid.

7. Close bleeder valve and let pump run till all bubbles gone.

8. Put jug w/ remaniing fluid in closet.

I would not get that, to fill a tube res, I just put a barb on the res, put some tubing on it, and stick in a funnel on the other side. Then I just slowly pour.

Ahh okay, whys is that?
Is it because it is quite slow, or because I have to reach inside the case to fill?

I like to use cheap solutions for things like these. Nothing wrong in using what you linked to but if you already have something that can do the same for less why not.

M6F USers take Note: Had some time to look at the MoBo yesterday..... been sitting in dining room table for a few days ..... Cross Chill heatsink on M6F is H U G E..... looks like will be more of an issue than RAM radiator wise .

Rad color - Picturing the build in my mind....the overwhelming color being black ..... thinking may wanna break it up with some splashes of color with colored bands at top and bottom ..... wait will horizontal stripes make my Enthoo build look fat ? smile.gif ..... anyone ever done before ? Seems easy enough at least with the alpha cool (just shroud BTW like the $20 more white versions but which are not readily available as 140s)

Other Coatings:

a) read comments about the all copper plugs on NexxoS rads attracting fingerprints and discoloring and suggesting a clear coat .... suggestions ?
b) gonna need to fabricate some mounting brackets ..... was thinking about a rubber like coating to reduce any vibration noises ... anyone ever used ?
c) Anyone every painted the plastic cables connectors ? Previously I always replaced them to change colors as I was worried about flaking but was always curious. Instead of paying $0.45 each for these.... I just buy a pack of 30 in Ace Hardware for $2 and paint em.

Well what is supposed to fit is:

60mm with one set of fans in top compartment.
45 mm in push pull

It was hoping I might get lucky w/ low placed RAM slots and it might be possible to do a 60 in push pull and was waiting for case to arrive so i could confirm. But the CrossChill HS will hit long before RAM becomes an issue

What else you planning component wise?

Thinking of getting that combo too M6F and Enthoo. What size rad do you think will fit up top with the M6F.....45mm, 60mm?

There's 70mm from top of mobo to top of case, so a 45mm rad + 25mm push fan will just come right to the top of the mobo, or a 60mm rad without a push fan will still have 10mm of space, but that's leaving out the offset spacing.

According to Jesse's measurements posted in his FAQs at the end of the Enthoo Primo review at themodzoo, the mounting locations for 120mm series fans/rads are offset by 54mm from the mobo and by extension, that means that 140mm series rads will be offset by 44mm.

So, unless that heatsink or ram or anything else along the top of the mobo is taller than 54mm/44mm it shouldn't interfere with a 120mm/140mm series rad/fan combination thicker than the 70mm of clearance hanging down in front of it.

According to Jesse's FAQs, as long as nothing on your mobo is taller than 54mm, then you can fit a 120mm series monsta (80mm thick) rad in the top, with a push fan on it even. It'll just overhang the top of your mobo.
Quote:
What is the max clearance for a radiator installed in the top panel?

- The case has a clearance of 70mm for mounting a radiator in the roof. The mounts are offset by ~54mm so installing a 60mm (120mm series) radiator in push pull should not be an issue. As long as you do not have anything taller than 53mm on the motherboard (including ram), you can even install a 480mm monsta radiator in push pull. The X79 Dark, and G-Skill ram CAN be used with a monsta rad in push pull.

Sooo, after all that, the only thing you'd need to know whether a fan/rad combo thicker than 70mm could fit up top is how tall the heatsink is on the M6F. I looked a bit but was unable to find an exact height, but it doesn't look to be taller than 44mm though, unless you wanted to watercool the aluminum crosschill heatsinks and in that case with fittings/hoses attached to the top of it there's probably not going to be enough room for your fan/rad to overhang the mobo much if at all.
