It worked out since I only had one 2TB HDD that I threw in the system. Other than that it's just a monstrous mess of cables back there and my pump and another Res. I'll get around to posting a pic for you sooner rather than later, just not right this moment.

No problem, I just wanted to know, how you did it smile.gif I only have one 4TB HDD currently on the very bottom of the case, but once a pump/res is there, I have to come up with another solution

You could keep the HDD there TBH, at least if you're not scared to drill into your case like i did. At least if you're talking about that mounting point for a HDD at the very very bottom and not on one of the sleds.

Here is some pics, god forgive me for the mess......





But i suppose thats part of the beauty of the case is I don't have to look at that mess! hahahaha

Yes, the bottom of the case, not the sled smile.gif I am not scared about drilling, I already modified the front and top panels for better airflow biggrin.gif See pic below, the top is done in a similar manner and I have custom made filters on the panels smile.gif

Then you could do like I did and Drill into the HDD "cage" and mount your res there, or you could buy one of those brackets that allows you to mount your res to your radiator in the front provided you have a front radiator. Should be ez pz either way really.

Yeah, the radiator mounting would be a great idea... I will be getting this pump/res combo - https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-xres-140-revo-d5-pwm-incl-pump and yes, the front rad will be a 360 smile.gif

Yeah I got the D5 EK-XRES 100. So basically the little brother of the one you are going with.


I stuffed my 360 up top simply because I wanted to still be able to use my top HDD Sled for my WD 2TB HDD, which caused me to put my 240 Rad up front. I didnt even think about a rad mounting bracket deal for my res until I was in the process of building my loop, at which point i just said, " screw it" and drilled into the HDD cage thing instead. Oh well, hind sight is always 20/20 I suppose, and I like learning things the hard way =D. All in all, I'd say my build turned out pretty good all things said and done, minus my horrible cable management (or lack there of).

Hmm, I am thinking of stuffing the 360 up top, too.. but the pump will have to pump from the very bottom of the case to the top to the rad.. hope it wont strain it much...

Temps have been good in mine so far, and flow hasn't been an issue. Granted ambient temps have been lower because it's winter time, but even then I don't think they will be an issue. Going from Pump/Res>GPU>GPU>360 Rad>CPU>240 Rad> Pump/Res for flow. If it gets to be an issue at some point I guess I'll figure something out, but as it stands right now everything is fine. CPU temps around 55C on Prime 95 after 2+ hours. GPU Temps top out @ 50C on Unigine Valley after 3+ hours.

So it is better to go from pump/res to GPU, then to CPU, then 360 rad on top and back to pump/res? Initially I had it planned vice-versa, but I guess it doesn't matter.... or does it?

I'll be honest dude, I have no idea. Like I said before this was my first time doing this, so I'm completely unsure if this is the most optimal setup for temps or whatever. I imagine you won't see a massive difference in temps regardless of how you set it up, probably 3C temp diff tops because of the way thermal dynamics works, but what do I know!? I'm a total amateur when it comes to this whole water cooling biz.
