The EK res x3 is a great reservoir and it's available in a few different sizes. I'm using the 110 in mine. Works well.

So would I need 10mm hose or the 11mm EK stuff I linked to?

The size we use with the Predator is this one : https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-tube-zmt-matte-black-15-9-9-5mmhttps://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-tube-zmt-matte-black-15-9-9-5mm

On the webshop you linked they don't have the ZMT in this size. If you want to buy all your stock from this website then I would recommend this one : http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Mayhems-Ultra-Clear-hose-16--10mm-1m_55109.htmlhttp://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Mayhems-Ultra-Clear-hose-16--10mm-1m_55109.html it's not the matte black ZMT but it's a good alternative.


Also, about your question on the reservoir, Jyve already pointed out the EK X3 Reservoir. thumb.gif

Awesome guys! Thanks for the advice! Now I think I will get the colder parts you recommended in 3/8 and get everything else from the EK shop as I need my QDC Titan XP block too. I'll have an amazing predator QDC setup then!

Out of interest as the pump will be at the top of my 900D case does it matter that the extra reservoir would be mounted lower than it?

No problems in this situation since the pump has a small reservoir connected to it.

One thing though is that you will have to fill this tiny reservoir first to be sure that the pump isn't running dry and then fill the bigger reservoir. During your filling process you will have to make sure that this tiny res always have liquid in it.

Brilliant, if you wouldn't mind linking me to the parts you use that would be amazing, as this is fairly new stuff to me (never done any custom water cooling)

As for the clips that they use for the hose to the QDC, I just email EKWB .50 cents a piece, I ordered 4 to have two extra for down the road.

I plan on connecting all of this together to rinse and bleed, then just plug it right into my system pre-bled ready to go, kinda like the pre-filled blocks.

Whoa no way thanks for all the info man that's everything I need to know!! Wow!

In regards to a second pump in the same line, is that OK to do?

Sure it's OK to use. Not entirely necessary. I suppose if you had a bunch of components then maybe. The predator pump, while not the most powerful of pumps, has plenty of oomph to cover most setups.

I'm pretty sure it'll be enough for 3 blocks, 2 rads, and a res.

Eventually I'll be adding a 2nd gpu block and 2nd 240mm rad to mine. Currently running a cpu block, gpu block, 240mm rad, and an x3 110 res off mine.
