Pump/res' are officially installed. Don't even get me started on how complicated it was to mount the second one. After I drilled the first set of holes, the top holes didn't line up with the bottom and that meant I could only screw in two holes (I don't know how to say that without sounding dirty biggrin.gif ). So I had to re-drill the top two holes and now they are both parallel with one another smile.gif I could only get three of the four screws in though.

Here's a picture. I apologize for the lack of quality, as my iPhone 6 plus is the best "camera" I own... Plus it's dark and there's no good lighting in my house. Tomorrow I'll see if I can get better ones.



I'm in love with this case. I'm just wishing I didn't own the RX360, because that's going to be a pain to work around in the bottom with the tubing.

Thanks Mike. I'm trying my best on this build. I know I'm not like the best builders out there, but I'm so happy with how it's turning out.

That is coming along nicely thumb.gif Did you use a ruler, or any measuring tool to get the reservoirs to line up with each other?

Thanks. On the backplate, there are slots for cable management via cable ties, and I used those to line it up. For the second one, it was a lot more complicated. I pretty much did the second mounting by guessing haha.

Lined up perfectly. So happy with the outcome.



Sometime this week I'll start drilling the pass through holes.

May I ask what drill bit you used to drill the holes for your reservoir? I'm looking for a drill bit to drill holes for M4 threaded screws (I'm assuming your reservoir has the mounting)
post #419 of 892
looking good bro! i like the photon reservoirs. just didnt know how effective the lights would be when running a pastel coolant. you going with distilled?

I'll be using Mayhems Paste Ice White. Here's a pic of my previous setup that I just took down (all I did was just change cases and get two more pumps and the additional radiators).



Quality isn't the best from my iPhone, but you get the idea, right? biggrin.gif

I'm using the NZXT Hue for lighting, and no issues with it and the Pastel Ice White. It may not look good in the photo, but it's pure sexy in real life smile.gif


Never mind, you meant the lights in the pump/res... I won't be using the lights thumb.gif

@toggLesssWheres your updates at bro? Haha
