That would be perfect if it fits. and as you say if it's secured at the bottom then I could likely get away without supporting the res up top.

I look forward to your feedback, thanks again.

This case is definitely geared towards thermaltake products. I had to drill 4 small holes for my Monsoon MMRS to mount.

I'll be using a fairly simple watercooled 4690K (delid) + 980 GTX with 420mm radiator + 3 noctua fans.

However I do have a question related to my pump and the needed reservoir.

Right now I have an Alphacool VPP655 with XSPC reservoir top tank.
For this case it's way better/prettier to have a giant Tube reservoir with the pump mounted onto it.

I was hoping someone could review whether my reservoir tube purchase is indeed a wise choice smile.gif

http://www.highflow.nl/reservoirs/reservoir-toebehoren/alphacool-reservoir-clip-on-50mm-black-2-pieces-15161.html

Will the reservoir clips be enough to hold onto the pump with tube reservoir, or do I need something like a bitspower top + tube:

http://www.highflow.nl/reservoirs/tube-reservoirs/bitspower-dual-single-d5-top-upgrade-kit-150-clear-bp-d5topuk150ac-bkclcl.html

Any input is much appreciated, will of course join the P5 owner's club with pictures etc thumb.gif

stinO, that XSPC res would look tiny. I like the Bitspower option but make sure you measure first because 400mm is huge! Here is a picture of mine in progress with a 250mm res on top of my pump.

here is mine for the time being had to abandon the gpu plate until I sort out the ribbon cable thing I mentioned a page or two back, which is unfortunate since an matx system looks silly with this case(plate+gpu's filled the space), also ignore some of the fittings I had everything planned for the plate when I had to tear everything out I had to macgyver some fittings together to make the tube runs possible. Going to have to save some extra pennies for the summer for upgrades and grabbing some hardline fittings/tubing or maybe metal tubing i'll see when the time comes.

Looking good mr.biggums! Question, is your pump going to your rad first?

yes it is, having it set up this way hurts the flow a lot but its keeping both cpu and gpu's in mid 50's at load.

Wonder what your temps would be going the other way? Reason I ask is having the radiator cool after it has been heated by your GPU and CPU is the more common way IIRC as the water is already cool coming from the res.

This is a bit of a myth. The water temps equalize across the loop. I've proven this to myself with "hot" and "cold" temp sensors in my main rig. It really makes no difference at all. The water moves fast enough that it isn't any warmer or colder water in different parts of your loop, especially in a simple loop like this in the P5. My main rig is nuts rad overkill, so my cold sensor is placed after the water has gone through four 360 rads (and two of those are 88mm thick Alphacool Monstas). You barely seen ANY difference in the sensors, even under serious load.

this is basically it, I ran this system in a loop with two 240's with no res so it was apogee drive II (cpu+pump combo)-> 240 rad -> gpu's ->rad - apogee drive II and the temps where withen 1-2 degrees of the my current which can be marked down to a margin of error.

Great info everyone! Didn't know hat, I think I was just going with the norm. Might have to rethink my loop now, damn you two!!
