I think I explained poorly. I see a lot of different mounting mechanisms and extra mounting accessories. So I wondered if you in most cases have to buy additional mounting gear to mount the res to a radiator.
And if so, which kind of mounting gear do you prefer?
Second part was just what kind of res you like? Like the XSPC photon 270 that I see going around a lot, or aqualis PRO 450 which looks quite nice.

Yeah, you need a braket of some kind to mount a reservoir to a radiator.
I'm not the best person to ask about mounting gear, as I have modded what I needed for my case.

Just bought this case over the President's day weekend for a future 5960X build. It's huge. I've
"dabbled" in custom water cooling (have a MO RA3-420 so I'm in hook, line and sinker!).

Since I already have a EK Coolstream 480 PE and a XSPC EX360 I intend to add an additional EK 480(same rad) to cool the 5960X with 2 R9 290s.

I have a Swiftech D5-655b hooked to an acrylic XSPC bay reservoir but want to use a tube type reservoir since I have so much internal room.

Any suggestions?

This guy caught my eye (even though TT burned me a few times already rolleyes.gif).

I had the V71 and it was good, but a few miss-steps. Maybe this one does better! Anyways, the "horizon" (aka horizontal) layout is the most appealing thing followed by the 480 rad support.

The obvious question should be (think of it as "Can it run Crysis?"), can it hold a Monsta 480 w/ one bank of fans? (Monsta 86mm + 25mm = 111mm).


If my cards sag too much, I may go w/ a horizon setup. props to TT for this design at a low cost. Now fix that customer service and please make sure to do things in full and not half-baked (V71).

edit: I did a search, nothing came up btw thumb.gif

Cool, 145mm less 111mmm, less 20 (bridge/port). Interesting...well just waiting for me second card to show and we'll see how bad it sags or not. Can fit two Monsta w/ one bank ontop and the 3rd below.

It depend on your GPU height. I run a 102mm rad-fan setup in top and can just fit a finger between my GPU and it.
That is with EK XTX 480mm rad, 38mm fans and GTX 970 SLI with a terminal connecting them.
