Mounting reservoir in a Corsair 750D case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone here doing a build in a Corsair Obsidian 750D case? If so, how do you mount your reservoir? Are any of the present holes usable or do you drill your own?
My plan is to use the spider mount on top of a bottom intake fan and put the res/pump combo on top of that. I'm not 100% sure if the 14cm variant will fit underneath the graphic card though (and I'd really like to do the 25cm res), if I put it in the uttermost bottom fan slot only half the width of the res will be visible through the side window (and I get into trouble where to mount the HD cage as it will either block the pump out/in or hang above and limit the res height).
What would be the total height from bottom to top of a 14cm DDC Elite pump/res combo + spider mount + 25mm fan?

Would love to hear from anyone with a similar setup and how you solved it.

Is the reservoir/pump combo for the 5.25" bay not an option? smile.gif

Not really as the 420 rad will dig into the 3 available 5.25" bays (and I'm not a fan of bay reservoirs).
I did some measuring and it looks like I have 220mm room from floor to bottom of GFX card (possibly 225). Specs for the pump/res combo says 178mm, fan 25mm, so unless the spider mount add more than 17mm in height I should be good (looks by eyeballing it to be like 10-15mm?.)
I guess worst case scenario I'd just have to get separate pump and res and try to use existing holes or drill new ones.
If only the bottom fan location had been 10-15mm to the right and it would have been perfect wink.gif

Thank you to @Radnad

LoL, dang eVGA! Not only can't I find a water block for the 970 SSC 2.0+, but the extra length of the card is what screws me a bit here, only 5-6mm shorter and the res would clear it. Might almost be worth trying to trading it for a non ACX 2.0+ SSC with someone.
