Got another little job ticked off the to-do list: sleeved the pumps.
Switched to the D5 PWM pumps from the USB version for simpler wiring wink.gif

Mental Note: white sleeving is not the best color choice over red, black, green and blue wiring doh.gif
But keeping with the rest of the build, I'll be doing my darndest to hide them anyway tongue.gif

Best dual D5 pump top ever made.
Getting very rare now I image, pull this one fresh from the box biggrin.gif



Doubled up and added "shockies" to the bottom of the mounting bracket, to go with the set that connect the pump top to the bracket.





On the side facing the inside of the case, I decided to place a PMW and RPM splitter.
Both PWM and 1 x RPM will go to the Aquaero.
The other RPM may or may not get used. Probably will end up going to the Mobo (CPU Fan) so I can pull the pump's RPM into Aquasuite and set another shutdown in Bios.



Technically this board was not a proper fan splitter, but a power splitter because NONE of the RPM/Tach pins were connected.
To overcome this minor hiccup, I soldered a short length of wire between the appropriate pins on the back of the board.
This is for the single RPM wire that will go to the Mobo.

I have a similar pump wire setup. I did send the 2nd rpm to the mobo ... as it complained that I didn't have a CPU cooler during boot when nothing is connected to the CPU fan port.

^definitely best looking Dual D5 pumptop ever. Wanna trade for a new D5 Revo top? tongue.gif

Very creative wiring setup, the splitter is nicely integrated with the bracket, looks very slick.thumb.gif

The white sleeving looks fine in the photos, I can't see any wiring colour bleed-through.
I know it's difficult to hide the wiring colours with white sleeving though.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the older D5 CSQ top (single pump version tested) performed a bit better than the Revo, as shown in this review: Damn good review (Click to show) I had to mention it, because I can, lol.

I would think that there are virtually no new EK CSQ Dual D5 tops for sale anywhere now.
Except for those lucky folks who had one stashed away for later use, lol.biggrin.gif

As a fellow Dual D5 CSQ top stasher I can confirm it's goodness. Love the extra tweaks.

Dem rads though be AC UT60's..
I never tried fitting myself but I recall that @IT Diva was most annoyed to find the extra width and side facing stop plugs prevented the HWLabs SR2's from being fitted side by side in the S8 roof.



Ohhhhhh, yessssss . . . . .I remember being quite perturbed when my shiny new HWL 280 MP2's wouldn't fit side by side because of those damn caps and port bosses on the sides . . . . mad.gif

Had to order a pair of 240's, which gave up a pretty fair amount of rad space, something I really didn't want to have to do in a dual loop system.

@fast_fate, do you think the EK-D5 Cover Kit (Nickel) Acetal (referring to nickel cover only) will be compatible with the EK-D5 Dual TOP G14 CSQ?

I DO NOT think they can be used on the dual DS CSQ top - out of the box anyway.
The cover-kits come (came) with a new/replacement retention bracket which allows for the extra height of the cover.

I know of one person @Jakusonfire who was going to try something to get the covers integrated with the dual top, but haven't seen him in a long time.
May Jak can share his findings on how the mod went wink.gif
