Mounting pump in my case

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just got my pump and bitspower Mod kit + pump top, and I am having troubles figuring out how to mount the thing to my 900D.

The bracket can fit on the section as shown in the images below..





But I did not get any screws or washers to secure it. All I got was the silicone anti-vibration pad and that's
it.

What are my options here to mount the pump? I know it's noob but hey what are forums for tongue.gif

I only ever had a pump/res combo before so it'd uncharted waters for me...

I have the same setup, you basically just place the pump on the silicon pad, which you have placed on the bracket. This 'de-coupling' of the pump drastically reduces vibration noise.

Yeah I get that, but I just didn't put the silicon pad in for illustrated purposes, but what I don't get is how do I securely mount the pump? I didn't get any screws or washers.. Basically I need to drill 4 holes correct? But I have no screws to keep it in place lol

You could even use some Velcro and no screws at all, It will be held fairly well by the tubes as well.

I've got Velcro holding the lower hard drive bay to the floor of my server thumb.gif

Well i do have velcro in the box from the swiftech pump quite a thick piece too, but it doesn't seem too secure to tell you the truth lol and I was planning on mounting an X3 250 res straight ot the top, but i may not be able to do so now lol...

Was i supposed to get screws for this damn thing to hard mount it or what? I got screws for the swiftech pump but they're way too long.

Good looking build too mate thumb.gif

Just go to your local hardware store and buy some. Not sure if it should have come with any.

Otherwise if the case is not going to move around maybe look at double sided tape.

I just have my pump sitting on the rubber along with some foam to dampen vibrations. The tubes hold it up pretty securely, and my tube res above the pump is held to the case with zip ties, so there's barely any pressure on the pump from above.

I use the 3M VHB double sided tape with good results. Can double layer it for a little more isolation. Available at places like office depot as well.
