I priced out a similar setup and it was in the 150ish range.

(my total was 205 however I didnt have feet nor cathodes but I did have 6 stop plugs and 4 bitspower fill ports, so 150ish is a good guess)

If you went with the predone Customizable however then you are look at 140 or so.

The longer pump covers I was talking about aren't out yet, but they're for the AquaComputer D5 pumps which have connections on the backside for the USB/Aquaero controller, temp probes, etc. so they need to be just a hair longer:



One can /almost/ make it work with the current cover, but Gene was kind enough to see about making some longer covers for us AquaComputer pump folks smile.gif

The current size pump cover fits standard D5 pumps great. I have a Swiftech MPC655-PWM in this pump cover and you can see how perfectly everything lines up:

Pfft I could just bill all my singing as "metal" band.gif

Heh. The panel is tension fit so I'm going to add (up to 1/8" thick) sound dampener padding as needed along the front of the chassis behind it, and possibly some thinner 1/16" padding under the res mounts. Should be more than enough to de-rattle it while I'm recording since the pumps will be running low. I'm inverting the res (ports facing downward) so I'll most likely be mounting the MMRS to the front panel rather than the angled out part (where the clear mounts are now) and can secure the MMRS solid. The angled out part is really just there to hide the tangled external to internal guts of the water loop beneath the res and keep the look up top clean.




On the lighting, I was thinking to do a backlight glow under the res as a nod to the original inspiration of my entire build - the way the blue led's on the Corsair K90 keyboard reflected on its brushed aluminum:



My lighting setup is pretty intense... I'm just about done with my (latest as I've done three or four trying to get it just right) light tray which does a defused glow right along the edges of the MB and the twin white hardline tubes that run to the CPU and GPU blocks on either side of the MB will light up as well.

The LED "interface" I'm building is modular, like I can do normal stuff like solid light, a bunch of flash patterns, breathing, but I can also can link any of the individually lit elements to light up Hz and/or channels off my rig's audio and I'll be able to switch everything around whenever I want. So I can have the full right channel on one hardline tube on one side of the MB and full left channel on one of the hardline tubes on the other side of the MB, have one of each of the twin hardline tubes flashing treble off the right and left channel on either or both sides of the MB, have the whole thing flash to bass, have the mb tray flash treble hardlines bass and res rear channel, etc. etc. It's going to be quite a lighting toy heh

Quick warning you may wish to know of regarding the Primo. If you plan on using the reservoir bracket, none of the pre-drilled holes will work, so you need to drill them. If you face the front, the best position to avoid conflicts with the optical bay cage would be to drill holes 6 mm from right of the "center" hole and 20 mm to the left of it. And remember to add 24 mm to any height calculations.

But yeah, it's a bit of an annoyance, having to work so much to get my res fitted right (in addition to that, I had to decrease the bracket width to account for my current GPU and cut part of the GPU housing to stop it from interfering). Still. it's gonna look amazing once I have everything set up, so hopefully I'll have pictures.

i havent decided yet.. ill use the res bracket at first for sure as im using my old res and mounting a second res hidden connected to a second pump for better flow and redundancy as well as filling without using the h220x fillport which is tedious and makes me angry... thanks for the heads up though i plan to add a nice res that matches the build later on.... i have the rads and everything except i realized im going to come up short on tubing so i have to order more when i get paid.. thats why i havent moved my stuff over yet....

I have on quick question, the top part on the cast that is screwed in, stays screwed in? I was watching the install video for the pump and the one in the video did not have it.

Yup it stays screwed in and acts as an anti-vortex device. The reason you don't see it in the video is because I don't believe Monsoon was putting them on at that point so welcome to the 2nd gen already ;-)

Awesome, thank you for the reply. thumb.gif

Here it is Assembled.

Update on Sketchup models.

I have gotten the CAD files for each part to import into Sketchup--finally--and although they look great and are scaled correctly they are pretty much worthless as far as I am concerned because none of the vertices are clickable so I can't add in handles so you can easily assemble them and if you can't assemble them what is the point?

The program is not sophisticated enough to easily create models as nice looking as the imported parts and I don't have time to draw them all out by hand even if it could.

Sorry.
