Fair point sir, and that is one reason I don't want the case mount.

Will be putting a thick portion of foam under it if space permits

When all is said and done on a full-on build, it will add up to over a grand. You'd be surprised at all the knick knacks you need. But it's not really about the money, it's that you don't have preferences yet, and it will take time to develop them and that will cost you more money down the line as you swap stuff, gaining experience, blowing stuff up, till you finally figure out the things you like and the things you don't.

You make a fair point.

The only thing thats gonna be against my preferences is tubing for sure and the res appearance.

I would love to do hardline but that **** would take forever.

you didn't see my example? DDC pumps are known for being louder than a D5 vario. my d5/res combo is louder on setting 2 than my decoupled DDC pump/xres at full tilt.

its not even a fair comparison. my mcp35x is not even audible with side panel open.

Mass does not matter. When you mount directly to the case the case becomes like a speaker for the vibrations.

The res/combo is fine but for a silent pump/res combo it needs to be mounted to something that won't transfer the sound to the case.

I know the case will amplify the vibrations, BUT! XSPC combos come with nice foam. There is no vibrations coming from it - and its mounted to my case.

If you havent already bought anything, good luck with the Photon 270. I have that and it is insanly large and hard to work with.

Prolly best to get some measurements on it

Bending acrylic is easier than I thought it would be. I wish I had never ever bothered with soft tubing and standard compression fittings. Inevitably I wanted to move to acrylic and had to get rid of all the fittings I had and get all new ones...

Wise idea. Fractal cases are really good quality and well thought, but there are better ones for WC. Ie. Phanteks enthoo primo with its double 480 space.. or Corsair 900D biggrin.gif

Primo for sure. It's a lot easier going dual 480 and dual psu in a Primo, and without any major cutting or modding either. That was actually a big concern for me.
