Also other things i forgot to mention:

I was only able to use 2 screws in front. I am not sure if thats good or bad. Those two holes were the only ones that were lined up just fine.

Other than that, temps seem just about the same as my Dark Rock Pro 3, but the quality is AMAZING. I am happy but will be happier when i get the pwm extension.

here is a pic

You may want to double check with someone who knows Watercooling better than i, but i don;t think you can mount it with the pump and res at the top. I don;t think it will feed the pump properly.

I checked the manual and this position is okay according to it

At it's price point, they aren't going to be hurting anyone lol. Most people are still going to buy the Corsairs and NZXTs because they're cheaper and have more brand recognition in that department. Yes us enthusiasts know who EK is, but there's a whole lot more people that don't even know who they are, because all EK does is water cooling. If someone's just getting into water and is looking at All in Ones, first one they'll more than likely stumble upon is Corsair, and they'll buy corsair because they know their cases, their memory, their keyboards, their mice or whatever the heck else Corsair sells.

Them being new to water, they aren't going to spend 200+ on an All In One simply because the Corsair is a name they know and it's half the price.

That being said, EK being EK, will def take the hearts of all the people who do know who they are and don't wanna deal with custom made loops anymore...like me.

I started with a Corsair h50. My brother kind of liked that but didn't like nothe having a more robust system so he held off upgrading to AIO and the limitation of overclockability that it had when I was trying to get my 955 stable at 4.0ghz speeds. I could get it there but couldn't sustain a stable clock from my modded h50 cooling plate and Push/Pull with modded fan shroud setup. I could run stock up to 3.9 ghz but 4.0 failed too much even with a minor increase in voltage. So I went Custom Loop which increased cooling +240mm over the AIO.

Now my brother is interested in the EK Predator. Although I think for the cleanest install it will be the 240 since the HAF932 has perfectly flat mounting surface for a 240 and a 360 leaves a bit of a gap between the last half 120mm and the final pair of mounting points.

So he'll likely go with the 240 and mount a 120mm fan at the final spot to keep cool air circulating. smile.gif

Can anyone that does custom watercooling comment on why these Predators aren't doing better temps wise? They are described as pre-assembled with the same parts as a custom loop yet they don't seem to be doing any better than the top air coolers or the Corsair AIO's from the reviews and customer comments I've seen.
