This is interesting...
I disconnected the pump from the splitter hub and connected it to the motherboard directly.
I can now control the fan speed from the splitter hub.
The pump speed control works separately. 

I think this will wind up being a better solution.
I'll have the pump running at full speed and the fans at a temp variable speed.
good deal

Hello everyone. I'm very interested in this system. But I've got some questions due to the limitations of my build.

To start with, I'm using an ASRock X99e-ITX/ac motherboard. It's LGA 2011-V3, but narrow ILM. I've found an adapter sold by EKWB for useage with my socket, but, from my understanding, I'll need to disassembled the CPU block that comes pre-installed to fit this adapter onto the block. If that's the case, I should also purchase some of the EVO Clear liquid to go along with this, to re-fill my kit with, correct? Or top off the cooler if I can minimize the leakage during installation.

Secondly, since I need to remove the CPU block anyways, should I also order one of the X99 CPU blocks? Then I could try to sell the block that normally comes with the 240.

Lastly is, although the Predator 240 is an excellent value, perhaps I'm better off trying to build a custom loop into my case, based off similar components? I know that the radiator used in the Predator 240 on it's own will fit without an issue inside of the case. I'd just need to look into a good pump/reservoir combo that would fit. Or, perhaps, fill the loop with no reservoir included. The picture below is the approximate space I'd have for any kind of pump/pump & reservoir combination. Which is approximately 50mm tall x 120mm wide x 90mm deep.



I'm pretty settled on EKWB blocks though. They look so clean and professional.

Go custom, it's an ejoyable experience and you will end up with a better setup. Problem I have with the predator and this goes with all AIO products. One part fails and your sending the whole unit back for warranty rather then just a pump or a single fitting etc

How do you guys fill this thing up without a reservoir? How do you bleed?
post #4195 of 7089
Man feels forever, have waited nearly 2 months now for those pre-filled QDC 980Ti TF5 blocks ;(. I really hope next month (15th), they really are available to purchase, like its stated on the site (previously they were supposed to come this month).

There's 2 fill ports on the unit. The one near the pump is the #1 choice. It's a tideous process since the reservoir is very small so it requires patience.

Come to think about it, my unit is also reading 380 RPMs in the bios. I had to set my CPU fan monitor to Ignore in order to not get the CPU fan error. I was assuming the predator was revving up as the CPU heated up but maybe it's not. Is it stuck? I have to check this out when I get home

Anyone managed to fit a 240 or 360 on top of h440? Just wanna find out if this will interfere with the motherboard heatsink or the cpu 8 pin power

You're not alone. I had the same problem with one of the threads in a 360. Contacted support, and EK then sent me replacement backplate, rubber gasket and mounting mechanism. Very happy with their customer service.
