I'm also putting an anti-cyclone fitting in the inside top of my reservoir to attempt to create a fountain like effect. I've done tests with water and it looks cool and doesn't appear to choke the flow at all, but that's only based on the water flowing at the rate gravity pulled it through the tube, not reflective of the pressure the pump will be pushing it with. I'm painting some parts now, but I've already bent all my tubing and should be assembling my system within the next week or two for testing. I'll report back how it works.
Ironically, the last thing I need for my system is 4 fans for the radiator. Do you feel the Premium are worth the hassle and upcharge in price, or just go with the tried and true previous model with the manual controller?

yes thats exactly what i want to do.. you worded yours better lol..... anyone have any advice on the subject? i suppose we could fully fill the reservoir till we get all air out of system then just let a little liquid out from the drain port?

Imo, you should always fully fill the res and bleed all the air out. The "fountain effect" seems to be a popular thing lately for whatever reason but it just causes aeration and adds unnecessary bubbles that could get caught in the loop, not to mention that noise would become annoying after a while.

Ya, I had planned to fill the res fully, then fill the res from through the res and hope air can bleed out through the same port. Here's a (poor) photo of my build in the setup stage.

Can you point me to some builds with the "fountain effect"? I'm not sure of the ramifications which is why I brought it up here but you're the first to confirm my concerns of aeration, but otherwise I had planned to just try it and if it didn't work, remove the fitting from the top inside of the res and fill the res to the top and call it a day.

very nice! that is actually exactly the look im going for... even down to the same pump.... What Ek pump is that? looks good. repped.

and yes please do point us to a few examples would love to see and hear some like that to really make up my mind.

you have no idea what you're talking about. I have Alphacool Eisbecher with fountain effect, no air bubbles not addtional noise is created. Please, don't sell some fake info if you haven't done or done it wrong.

I didn't post any fake info I said "IMO". Why don't you post a vid of your fountain so we can all see your expertise, and some links to build logs that have the fountain because I can't find any.

old video, with one pump only, not much can be seen but hope it helps:

well , I took one look at this chassis , had to start a build ; not finished yet , gpu needs water jacket ( still waiting for delivery ! ), and I am going to re do the pipework








post #1468 of 2960
Guys I want this case badly but I fear my 2x980Ti + 6700K will suffer from 480 rad, it needs more rad space. Does it accept a 560 Rad? Such as Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 560mm?

If anybody tried a 560 rad on it, can you provide pics and some advices?

Thank you, this is the pump: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xtop-revo-d5-pwm-plexi-incl-pump

Actually just got done polishing the pump a bit last night:




I'm pretty happy with how my build is coming along, I wanted the clean look of the 3 tubes around the res being parallel. Just in the middle of painting some parts now and working on cable management. Should have it together soon but unsure when I will be able to run it because I'm still waiting on the new Thermaltake Riing fans to be sold individually.

Another in-progress shot:

wow that looks amazing man! what grit sandpaper did you use and what did you use to polish it afterwards?

your setup is basically EXACTLY what im wanting mine to look like. just different colors... except my reservoir is diff. (bigger) http://koolance.com/reservoir-body-80-x-240mm-924ml




keep us posted on the progress. cant wait to see the fountain effect in yours...

what color fluid you going with ?
