Second Loop Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've already build a loop before, it's terrible... So messy. I have the res zip tied to where my back fan should be, the rad is outside the case, the pump is velcroed to the bottom of the case, and the T-Line hardly works...
So this time around I'm going to ask for help..
What I've got so far that I'm planning to reuse is my MCP35x, EK Supremecy, and Swiftech 360xp. But, if I could salvage my Bitspower res and perhaps properly mount it somewhere in my new case that would be ideal. Can you guys share some tips and tricks about how to mount things nicely, without drilling holes (i tried that the first time around thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif) with a fellow member to enhance they're rig? Pretty please heart.gif
Now here's my upgrade path that I'm looking at:
Swiftech Maelstrom with 35x housing.
1/2" 3/4" advanced LRT
Monsoon 1/2" 3/4" compressions
Koolance 45s and 90s
NZXT Switch 810

I prefer compression fittings, just found them easier to work with than the fatboys I had got from my first round. Also looks cleaner to me.

This is my rig as it stands minus the 120 Cougar on the back of my case, I broke a blade off by sticking my finger in it accidentally.

The other upgrades I'm planning to get can be found in my 'dream build' in my sig, minus the evo... That will still elude me for budget reasons.

Any help is much appreciated guys!

well I have the switch 810 & I can say you will probably have to drill a couple of holes to mount that res properly.

your rad will fit easily,

get yourself a dual bay reservoir? you can fit the pump there too, problem solved & will shorten your loop length too?

Well I was thinking I could actually just use a male to male extender and reuse my current res but I'm confused on how I would achieve sturdy mounting..

if you do buy a extension for your res then you possibly could use these holes?



what length is that res?

I don't think you understand what I've meant. I'm ditching the idea of mounting the res to the case wall and am going to be using a
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_203_471&products_id=31230
to connect pump directly to reservoir. I just don't want to drill holes in my beautiful new case once I get it.. maybe I could playdough it to the powersupply? devil.gif

sorry, I thought you meant fit it to the case without drilling any holes rolleyes.gif

not to sure how you would secure it tbh , maybe you could use epoxy with some sort of L clear plexi bracket at the back of it?
