Yes, the pump on the Predator is a standard sized DDC....it's just a lower wattage one to minimize the heat and noise.

maybe question was asked bevor. sry for that.

Is it Possible to disasamble the Predator?

remove the block an the tubes and use other fitings with 1/4" threads?

Thanks

Yes you can. But you will have to flush the unit and refill it after you changed your parts. Also, since you're disassembling the Predator, you'll need to do a normal yearly maintenance on it.

Ok. Thank you. It's such a shame because that QDC looks so damn ugly and it would be great to have a non-QDC version.

You guys have your own fittings at every connection except the QDC. I am sure cost is what's keeping that really off looking QDC there. Would there be any option of having an increased cost version that has a metal QDC such a as Koolance or swiftech. Swiftech has a premium version of their kits that upgrades the connecting components, While I am a custom loop guy and not an AIO fan, I think it be worth while for EK to try to get a better looking setup. I think many people looking to spend EK AIO money would happily pay 40 bucks more to get a nice looking qdc on their kit.

Waiting for the 480 predator now, for no other reason than, to say I have a 480 AIO
post #5237 of 7180
I'm wanting a 360 version without the qdc. Of course it's a little late now as I've already got the 240. My plan is to just add a 360 to the loop.

I've asked before and didn't really get a clear answer so I'll have another go at it.

Is the predator pump strong enough to run a cpu and 2x gpu blocks, an external res, a 240mm rad, and additional 360mm rad.

I'm guessing it'd be close but able to do it. Some ek confirmation would be nice.

Could someone be so kind as to let me know which is the output line from the Predator 240? I assume it is the one closest to the pump. I want to swap the waterblock for a Supremacy EVO I have available and the instructions note it is important to correctly route flow to the Inlet port on this waterblock. Also, are most people running the pump directly to their motherboard to allow pump control separate from the fans? I plan on installing the Predator 240 into a Caselabs BH7 by this weekend. Will post some pics when complete as there are not many out out there of this combo and apparently the Predator is a very tight fit. Thanks!

The part that does not have the fill port is the pump and the pump has the outlet. You can check the manual (also online) and take a look.
I am controlling the pump with my 2nd PWM port on my motherboard. Speedfan can controll the two ports separately.

Yes the pump will be able to handle it but like you said, it's close to the max components I would put on it.
