It should work just fine. The horizontal res will basically just act like a fat tube and be 100% full. The vertical small res is where the air gap would be. You'd just want to be sure the pump is fed from the small res and the pump should be lower then the res.

if you only wanted to use the horizontal MMRS, you'd need to make sure it stays pretty topped off or you risk the pump not being fed enough. This is what I'll be doing in my sig build log. It works fine, but you need to pay careful attention on a fresh loop fill until all the air is primed out of the loop. Running a dry pump will burn it out pretty quick.

That's the question.

That's the question.

As I mentioned in your other thread, I would seriously consider ditching the EK res, I'm still not sure what the purpose of both of them are, your just complicating and muddying the loop, and the tubing will be a nightmare, not to mention if the performance of flow will be any good. Put the MMRS on the back wall and call it awesome. The MMRS is way better looking and better quality than the EK res. You have that really nice case and need to compliment the aesthetics of it, not try to cram a square peg in a round hole imo.

I agree with 100% of what you have said here.

I concur with the above statement. Now if the flow were reversed, I could see using the EK to feed the MMRS but since this is the other way round I see absolutely no need to use the EK Res. 2cents.gif

How about using the new rad mounts to mount the reservoir vertical behind the radiator? Would bolt right onto those fans as sweet as you please =)

Pics, or they don't exist! biggrin.gif

I've been putting off making a bracket myself as I know your design will be a bit more professional compared to mine lol.

For 140mm or 120mm? And how soon could you actually use it if I sent you a production sample for testing purposes?
post #2689 of 4509
120mm fans x2, x2 rads. I'm waiting for the CaseLabs case to ship still but I have everything else on the bench already waiting. Once the case arrives, it's full steam ahead, but I have the fans, rad, and res now to test with. The res is x2 100 mm tubes with a coupler, end cap, and d5 pump housing. I'll be mounting it horizontal across a 240 mm rad. I'm actually doing this twice side by side coming out of the top of case.- think blowers coming out of a hot rod engine. I've done a couple test brackets that work ok, but they don't look great.

I've been toying with different ways to mount it on either end with the whole middle being open. I just bought a pair of your current mounts to try and combine those with the aluminum brackets I've got to mod something together. If you've got a more elegant way to accomplish it, I'll gladly test it for you.

I was hoping someone would see it the way I do. Recon the pump will have enough ponies to push it up to the second res???

I would do that but it will not fit vertically ANYWHERE. It has to be horizontal. If it were small enough to mount to the front rad the bends would be almost impossible. I'd have to fitting the whole area. Do any of you think that if I mounted the MMRS like in the picture, would the pump push the water up to the EK res. I really want it to work the way I have it laid out, I could do without the ek res. If I deleted the ek res and just went with a horizontal MMRS would it act like a normal res? What position would you mount it for it to be fillable, drainable? The side ports when mounted horizontally would be the highest point so should I just come in low on the opposite end and exit a side port pointing straight up on the other? There are two side ports side by side so if I used one as an exit to return the fluid to the pump would I be able to just unscrew the cap in hole beside it and fill it. I realize the loop will have to be initially filled from the 360 up top, but how do you configure the in and out on a horizontal MMRS to make it effective as a res. I know standing it up would be ideal but it's just too large and I really intended it to be horizontal in the design to cover up the sound and daughter card. Which end would you put the side entry end of the MMRS which also has three end holes and which of the holes would you use to make it effective as a reservoir. This would be without the EK. I hope you understand what I'm trying to convey. Does the flow need to enter at the lowest port and exit from the highest or come in the highest and leave from the lowest port I guess is the question.
