AquaComputer Base for pump 450ml + Pump Adapter for d5 pump = what?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys! I'm a newbie when it comes to watercooling this is my first build, i've bought my radiators, case, waterblocks, pumps, and res. The only things that are missing are the hose and fittings. Well when i bought the pump, res, and adapter I tried to put it all together and it just doesnt make any sense...

Anyone know how does it work?
A2 should go in B3
A3 should go in B2
And B1 should be covered right?
And around A4 theres a canal going out... that would leak right? :/

From what I have observered... A3 & A2 is where the water flows right?
And B2 and B3 is where there counterpart is, but there is no hole in B3 should i drill it? (Please guys this is not a joke Im serious... i need help ohno-smiley.gif )

B3 does not have any hole...

Any thoughts on this? I would be very grateful on any insights! Please share them! Thanks! exhappysmiley.png

I may be wrong about this, but I believe A1 and A4 in your picture is for optional LED inputs if you wanted to color code your fluid during operation.

Edit: And can I say wow there are no visual aids that I could find on AquaComputer's site for installation. I'm almost dead positive that A1 and A4 are the optional LED module locations.A2 is (I think) the locator for how the D5 module and the reservoir adapter plate fit together.

Thanks Ninhalem for the fast reply smile.gif

The pump top you have will only have a hole drilled in like Seanimus's one does if it is the model that includes a fill level sensor.
The only difference between the standard and the Fill sensor model is that there is an electronic sensor underneath that extra hole. The hole gives the sensor access to the water.

That pump top and res will only fit together one way. Water does not really flow through that model, it just holds water for the pump top, and flows out the centre hole. The in out connections stay on the pump top part.
Water does not flow through what you labeled as A2

There is a different model that water does actively flow through.

Thanks jakusonfire! That made me quite relieved, I was going to drill it in the next 30mins or so, if I hadn't read your post I would have done it already! doh.gif

Did you get it together? I think we picked out the exact same combo for our first WC loops and your thread here had me concerned I made a mistake in my purchase, too.
