Your build is getting sexier with all those complicated stuff lol

I thought about doing that, but from all the reviews I've read about them, they are VERY restrictive and aren't as efficient as most other radiators.

Time for a little Christmas computer modding. biggrin.gif


After trying everything I could to get the Aquacomputer reservoir in the case, even accepting the fact that I'd have to twist and turn the case on it's side every time I needed to fully fill the reservoir, I finally decided that while the Aquacomputer reservoir is a work of art and the highest quality in craftmanship, it just isn't going to work for this build.

So, I will be switching from a single Aquacomputer D5 USB controlled pump and the Aquacomputer 880mL reservoir to using a PAIR of Auacomputer D5 USB contolled pumps, an EK-D5 Dual Top with a 60mm x 200mm (565mL) tube reservoir attached.

The up side of this will be a much cleaner installation look, the reservoir will be in the vertical position so it will be infinitely easier to fill, redundancy and added pressure with 2 pumps instead of one, and best of all, I can mount a 60mm thick RX360 radiator in the bottom with "push/pull" fans for added cooling over the 240 radiator that I would have had to use if I tried to shoehorn in the Aquacomputer reservoir.

While the 60mm diameter reservoir WILL fit in with about 1mm of room to spare between the 5.25" drive bay bottom and the 2 GTX 780 Classified video cards, that is just a little too close for me. Any sort of vibration or miscalculation on drilling a hole, and I will quickly start vibrating and close that 0.5mm gap and cause the case to rattle. So to avoid this, I have started to mark up and disassmble the case so I can Dremel out about 5-8mm of material from the bottom plate on the 5.25" drive bay and put the reservoir and pump tops about 3-4mm away from video cards and from the metal of the drive bay. This will allow a very nice view of the reservoir and still have plenty of clearance.




I also found some foam that I had laying around that I most likely will try using as a sound absorbing encasement for the flow meter. Nothing special, hopefully it will work. The price was right ... FREE. biggrin.gif

Ok, NOW it's officially a "build" and not just an "assembly". To me, until the Dremel comes out, it's not a build. biggrin.gif





Now to clean up the edge and make it pretty.

Time to spend more money ...

Second Aquacomputer D5 pump mechnics with USB and Aquabus interface ordered.

Monsoon Hardline Pro Full Bending Kit - 3/8 x 1/2 (13mm)




That kit is way too slick. Should make life MUCH easier on this and all future builds.

This is going to be good!

My bending kit should be here soon:

Scheduled Delivery:
Monday, 12/30/2013, By End of Day

I already went out and got a 2' by 4' piece of 3/4" MDX board in preparation.


I did a little Dremel work and minor painting to be able to fit in the EK reservoir and pumps. I have to measure and drill 3 holes to hold them and maybe I'll get that done and take some photos of it tomorrow.

I'm not sure when my pump will get here (my German isn't that great), but UPS says ... "Bei Zollbehörde registriert. Sendungsfreigabe anhängig Prüfung durch Zollbehörde. / Sendung zur Zollabfertigung vorgelgt, erwarten Freigabe." roughly translated, it's sitting in customs awaiting release.

As far as when it will hit my doorstep, they don't know .... "Geplantes Zustelldatum: Die Informationen zur planmäßigen Zustellung sind momentan nicht verfügbar. Bitte versuchen Sie es später erneut."

Gotta love an international build. biggrin.gif

Aren't you using the DHL service from AC?
they sent you a link for english version tracking didn't they?

my backplate has arrived in my country but the custom is a pain here
also still waiting for a lot of packages including from Frozen, EK (which they have not ship yet)
I can only update my log early next month I guess which is pain to combine with Office work frown.gif
