Whats your secret?

In the pictures you see i literally just stuck it on, made it fit the holes and gave it a little push. That's it.

Long-term, it is secured when you put the I/O shield first and then screw in the PCI bracket, which overlaps and secures it down. For the Maximus IX Code, at least.

Had this thing for two months now, but recently had to pull the new build from it, scavenge what I could, and rebuild it. Ended up being an upgrade rather than a completely new build, as I have to sell off some of the new components.

Anyway...

Nothing fancy. No hardline tubes, and not even the best soft tubing runs. Component list is in my sig rig.



I have the fans reversed from the "traditional" mountings for the case, pulling air through the radiators to take advantage of the filter on the back side of the case. The right-hand fan space on the bottom radiator has push-pull fans because I had to have a fan there to mount the radiator to, so that the left-hand fan would have space for good airflow. I mounted the bottom radiator that way so that the reservoir would be in roughly the spot where it was designed to go. And to avoid having too big a blank spot in the build, of course.

ASUS AURA doesn't work with my board. Don't know if the G.Skill software will work with it, but it's buggy as hell anyway so I'm not going to try it yet. The RAM will have to stay with its cycling colors for now.

No, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with your loop and will work as it should.

Correct me if I am wrong, Your answer to my first & second questions has me a bit confused. Are you filling from the top of the Reservoir or the Radiator?

I meant radiator, sorry.

Ok, the best place to fill is always at the top of a reservoir so you never have to worry about letting your pump run dry when you are trying to cycle the liquid through. Where you are filling you may have back flow issues when trying to add liquid to the loop for the first time or after a complete drain. I have a few ideas, but would be better if I knew the exact make and model of your reservoir. Or try to find out if there is a multi-port top for your reservoir that you can buy, that way you can keep your flow indicator where it is and still have another port on top for filling. If there isn't one,then you may have to consider moving or getting rid of that flow indicator in favour of a Y splitter to act as a passthrough/fill port.

For the drain, I know exactly where you should put it, but need to solve the filling issue first for this to work out for the best.

I did my fans the same way, pulling air through the back of the case through the filter. Seems to work pretty well.

I've killed two sets of the G.Skill RGB RAM with their software. Stay far far away from v 1.08 at the very least. 1.16 came out after my 2nd set died so no idea how that works. G.Skill support has said to wait for another update before even installing it. (Going through the RMA process now)

Here's my SR2 build for reference. Nothing fancy but it does the job.

Using a Swiftech DC pump and Bitspower top with rezervoir adapter.

The cap on the rez has 3 ports so I use one for intake, one for filling and air escape, and one for a UV bulb.

As you can see I mounted the rad with the ports at the bottom and added drain valves to both tanks.

Looks like you took the power supply fan grille off. Why?

Hi all

I've moved all my hardware over to my new P5 and have played som games on it for a few days without any problems.
And would like to try it out with the Riser cable today.
I just ran a firestrike test to see if there would be any performance loss.
When I was using the Riser Cable, it said Code 62 on my Asus board and black screen. I then tried one of the other PCI-E slots but with the same result and error code.
I figured I had one of the bad cables that many of you have mentioned :-(
I then installed the graphics card normally and now I get the same error code on all three PCI-E slots but onboard vga works fine.
I have now burned my 980ti card or all PCI-E slot off.?
Is there anyone who has an idea of ​​what might have happened or what to do pls. Help

Sorry for my bad english I come from Denmark
