At least they aren't using Robertson drive screws, most people go nuts when they see those. Or locked/secured torx (there's a nub/pillar in the center so you have to use very specific bits)...

Phillips yes, my bad.

Yup there's enough room. I purchased one, should be arriving this week. Once that comes, Im switching to mount on the front.

As for the thickness, you're going from 38mm to 26mm, so yes, there would be a significant gain in space. The pump protruding out is not a concern because it's only a small part that is thick.


A refill no. But changing the tubing, adding another radiator or a GPU (non-prefilled) yes. But no maintenance is required on a 6 months cycle. Normally it's once a year and it can even be more.


Maybe the core would be thinner but the shroud would still have the same height unless you butcher it to make it thinner too. And also, I think it's a modified version of the PE core to be able to internally connect everything. Maybe @EK_tiborrr can confirm this.

hi Guys!

I'm reading this huge thread about this wonderful product, but couldn't seem to find some answers just yet..
might sound slightly stupid for some, though..however I would appreciate Your input very much.

I'd like to run two of those 240 in series (so I would have redundancy with dual pumps..) - & they are going to cool 4GPUs in parallel (Yes I know that surface area might be too low for optimal experience, but I'm looking to try =)

now the questions would be:

* Is it possible to plug those pumps directly into PSU so they would run fixed 50%, 66%, or 75%???

* if not maybe there's a PWM controller (really simple one) that would let to tweak speed pump by hand?

Box will not have any PWM connectors as singleSlot modded GPUs will be seated into backplate, thus I have to figure out something how to provide that or..simply stick with flat number (however I would prefer to avoid 100%).

thanks in advance.

Directly into the psu would run them 100%. You'd need a pwm controller that can support the wattage, but possible to run pumps independently from the fans. I won't even comment on 480mm of radiator cooling 4 gpus/1 cpu 😶

Hehe =) no CPUs box is not going to have any CPU at all =D..only GPUs for certain workloads (that's eGPU box).

Curious, if it would be possible to use some sort of resistor to apply less voltage & thus dropping some RPMs from pump?..

Still lol. But i dont think you wanna control rpm speed by voltage on a pwm pump.

Is this the right bracket? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=25_1573&products_id=30487

Hey guys, I am attempting to order my new build. Can anyone assist in telling if they think this will work?

I am planning on using the Phanteks Evolv ATX case as many are here.

I plan to mount the Predator 360 in the front of the case with reverse fans using a push pull setup (3 of the identical fans on the other side). The 360 will be cooling my CPU only and the Titan X will be air cooled.

Will it still fit a Titan X? With the Push Pull? That's 10.5" long.

Also the mobo I am trying to run is this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132263 - it is also slightly wider than a standard ATX (because it is CEB (12"x10.5") Not sure if it really matters though.

Can anyone see any foreseeable issues?
