If you have a 360, shud be plenty of room at the top. Looking at my 1st pic above, that's a 420 so you have an extra 600m. Reverse the rad, putting the ports towards front. Now instead of the 90s that you'd have coming in and out make one a tee. Coming up from the tee run a tube up to the top ending with one of these



Mount the fill port with a piece of sheet metal 50mm x 142mm with three holes longitudinally. Two near the ends for 6/32 mounting screws (125mm apart) and one lined up with your Tee about 20mm in diameter to mount the port. The end holes could be slots for a little adjustment. Here's a drawing:

That is a much more elegant solution, Jack, thanks. smile.gif In the interest of killing two birds with one stone, though, I'm actually thinking now that I may just temporarily dismount the top radiator, slide it out of the way and below the fill line of the reservoir, and just leave it there while I fill & bleed the system. That will make for easy access to the top port on the res, and make for easier bleeding since with the top rad moved down the res will be the top component in the system.

You're right, though, that the real solution for a permanent top-mounted fill port would be to install a custom bracket. Seems Phanteks didn't think of *everything* after all, huh? wink.gif

It's not really anything all that special but I like it. Most of it is made out of 2x6s. lol

The Enthoo Primo is so much smaller than my Cosmo II it just doesn't even look right to me sitting on that. But that's OK, I've already started making another smaller sized one just for it ...

Just made this. 6x 40mm twin castors on frame of 32mm strips of 10mm birch 7 ply void-free plywood overlap joint on corners painted satin black. Like the way it matches case base thickness.

It would be a simple thing to provide that bracket .... I'd be happy to donate all my plate designs to Phanteks at no charge .... well other than a shot at the Enthoo II for evaluation purposes of course smile.gif

Have my 35x2 plate at a CNC shop (friend of my sons) to see if the can do it at the moment.

Here's a copy of that:

35X2 Mounting Plate-Model.pdf 24k .pdf file
.
If they can do it, I'll ask if they can make me your plate too .... no idea what if anything they gonna charge me.

Also, as to the drain problem ..... low rad with Bitspower 90 bend does the trick .... I'll either put a Quick Disconnect or Valve and plug.

A 25mm extension from one closes to side with plug will work .... till ya take the plug out smile.gif

A male / male extender I'm gonna guess adds about 10mm .... dunno how long the valve or disconnects are so hard to figure .... could always go to one in back and make it work with an extender or 2 ... gives ya an extra 70mm to play with.

Nicely done ? How much for one made to match my Bitspower Fittings .... same color and materials ? And shipped to Long Island ..... and it must serve double duty as a skateboard ! smile.gif ?

BTW, in case my local CNC shop (they in HVAC business) can't handle my 35x2 plate .... anyone know of anyone who services OCN folks ?

I've had the drain port figured out for a while, I'm not too worried about that. It wasn't until last night, though, as I had the chassis open in front of me taking measurements and inventory as I placed my hardware order, that I realized that the using the top port on the reservoir to fill and bleed was going to be a problem. Gonna take your advice into account and give it some thought over the weekend. Thanks smile.gif

I just sent the plan for your plate to the shop (see modded drawing just reuploaded) .... if you can confirm dimensions for me for your rad, I'll try and get two made .....offered case of beer smile.gif.

I'm guessing that we only need to verify the size of the bulkhead fitting hole and the distance from the edge for your rad.

Curious why ya gave up the drill the case out idea ..... especially since I was planning same.

Tho since ya got me thinking.... I might just slide foreward and forget about drilling. It will cost me top drive bay which justy means dropping the Reeven

Thanks, but the more I've thought about it today (which has been basically ALL day lol), the more I like the idea of either displacing the radiator temporarily so it's below the reservoir OR pulling out the reservoir temporarily so it's above the radiator just while I fill (& bleed) the loop. I think that might actually allow for the cleanest/easiest bleed process while not requiring any additional hardware (which, in my case as a first-timer, is just more room for error lol)

I appreciate all the input, though! smile.gif I can't wait to get the actual build underway next week(ish)

That looks amazing!!
Do you have your case then? Didn't think they were released in the UK yet?!
post #1000 of 18690
OK, here's da final plan. Think I have it figured out.....

1. If anyone find this useful, glad to help out.

2. If anyone sees any issues, please bring em up now

EnthooDimensions.pdf 181k .pdf file

Bah forgot to rotate it .... ...fixed and reuploaded

Layout Based upon ......

(1) NexXXosS XT45-420 in P/P up top
(1) NexXXosS UT60-280 in P/P on bottom
(1) Swiftech 35X2 Pump
(2) EK150 Reservoirs

Now all I need to figure out is pump mounting plate and reservoir mounting.

I have seen lotsa builds w/ stacked reservoirs.... tho for life of me, can't figire how they get ports to line up.
