and besides, value can be very subjective in itself ANYWAY

this not only makes it easier, but it looks amazing from an aesthetic standpoint, in addition to picking up the "little things" that only an experienced watercooler made mistakes or hassled with before numerous times (QDCs, draining, etc.)

I'm going to be temporarily using a AIO until sometime late next year. Can the DDC in the EK Predator be used as a stand alone pump and if I remove the shroud next to the radiator, will it just be a normal EK PE 240mm rad? Yes, I plan on ripping the Predator apart to use with acrylic tubing.

To eventually use the parts in a custom loop.
  • Check bold text.
  • I suggested value because cost might have been the reason to make him consider the predator.

Idk, i still see no reason to tear this AIO apart. If you wanted a tore apart Predator 240/360 then thats what the L240 and L360 are, except with a addition of a bottle of ekoolant and better supply of tubing for a tad more.

Hey guys,

So I ordered a Predator 360 with a pre-filled GPU block and while waiting I was wondering what would be the setup. The push-pull setup appears to be the best one but I need some advices about it. Should I swap the Vardars ? Where do I connect them ?

My GPU QDC block still has not been shipped by EK since my order on thursday. Starting to be rather impatient.

Edit : Well, it just shipped.

DHL is announcing delivery tomorrow for mine.

Wednesday is a holiday in France too, so I should be able to get it up and running with some pics and temps then.

Your case is an Enthoo Primo, so you could connect the three push fans to the PWM fan hub at the back of the case, while maintaining the three pull fans on the PCB mounted to the Predator itself. You'll need a couple of Y fan splitters like these to be able to connect 2 fans per header on the hub though.

You should first try the Vardars, they are very good rad fans. Then, if for some reason you are unhappy with them, maybe you can consider swapping them.
