Stung's vesparum, 1st full custom loop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just a quick first post on the forum, and my first custom loop. I've done a couple of mods in the fractal define XL, like removing the drive bays to install a Monsta 420mm rad up front and a top 360 rad, with a Koolance shroud for push pull. Up top was going to be just in push that was until I won an Z87 Xpower and i5 4770k, but I though P/P would suit Haswel better considering the high temps. I'm not disapointed with the result running 4.2 @ 1.050v and never pushing over 46 and that's with fans at 5v. Only a small overclock as that too is my first, still got a lot to learn.

Cheers mate It is all only tempory now, I have finally dug out my Phantom 630, that a boshed up with my Dremel 3 days into owning it. I felt obliged to use the Fractal as it was a comp prize from a UK based forum, great case but too small.

What are you using to hold the reservoir in place? I'm planning a loop that's effectively identical to yours (the HDD cages are easily removed on the H630 though), but secure pump/res placement without drilling is tricky.

It was a pain in the but mate to be honest the Bitspower one that came with the res were about an inch too small, as in the height because of my block, I had to dig out an old Alphacool one ( as fugly as it is ) and to mount it a basic 140mm fan bracket there a a few makes out there. I then just cut it in half so it all couldn't be seen. Easy really.
