Something Small (and Wicked) This Way Comes... - Page 171

post #1701 of 2687
What he said☝️ I plan on heavily modding the case. Good thing about caselabs you can always buy replacement panels wink.gif measure twice cut once! I have 2-3 resivoirs laying around a aqua computer I may mount in the mid tray with the d5 clear pump under. A darkside 240 slim radiator up top and a ek slim radiator up front in the right for the clearance with 780 gpu. Gonna run all slim fans 25mm isn't a option. May even run a ek 100mm res horizontally next to the dual rad up top..... I always plan on buying way more than i need and having to re buy the right stuff smile.gif that's the fun past wasting money 🙀

lol, I always tell my wife to expect double what I initially tell her my budget will be when I'm doing a build. Not for the actual PC gear, but for everything else

You mentioned I don't need the fan adaptor to mount the pump/ress combo .... how would you mount it if you want to mount it horizontally.
Again, not a handy man so for me that was the only option i saw to mount the set horizontally.
I would obviously need to drill 4 small holes and use a bolt at the bottom of the screw to tighten it.

You think the gpu/gpu block would be able to be added to the loop as we don't know the area we have between the end of the gpu and the radiator.

that combo you linked I would not use in horizontal position. Is is said so in the Ek manual. Only to be used in vertical position. If you get a d5 or a ddc standalone you can mount them horizontally, just drill the holes. The ddc ek top does not have holes to mount horizontally but you can easily mount them on a decoupler (sorbothane or shoggy sandwich) and them screw the decoupler on the case. Reservoir can be mounted separetly using one or two brackets (ek provides them usually with the tube).

This is going to be one hell of a build to see a build log of.

I didn't understand none of that except: You can't mount that combo horizontally.
I'm a first time water cooler, I have always used AIO'S.
Any simpler way you can explain this to me using images/links?

Sorry, I'm new at this.

try to search build logs and read about WC a bit then...You can find a lot of useful info right here in OCN and on Martinsliquidlab (google it). here is a ddc mounted on a piece of sorbothane on the BH4:





and here is a d5 mounted vertically on a piece of shoggy sandwich




and here a d5 mounted horizontally on shoggy sandwich:

Got it, i just didn't know what "shoggy sandwhich" & "sorbothane" meant. They can be used to mount the pump/ress without the use of screws. Got it.

Or I can buy this instead like you said & just drill 4 holes: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-140-revo-d5-pwm-incl-pump
Correct?

If i did buy "https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-140-revo-d5-pwm-incl-pump", would the attached reservoir need any sort of support?

No it does not seems so. Ek says it can be mounted vertically or horizontally. So that one would be a good choice. Or a DDc variant of it. but does not seems EK offer a DDC variant good for horizontal mount.

Sounds good!
Now for the hard question regarding the BH2. You think I can include the gpu/gpu block in the loop? The issue is going to be the top mounted radiator and fans which raises the question if there enough room between the end of the gpu and the start of the radiator for tubes to reach the gpu block.
The room between the radiator and the end of the gpu is unknown for BH2 atleast.

The res pump combo is a lot bigger than you think. There are many options I think a seperate resivoir pump combo would be more workable in a bullet. Remeber you want the res to be above ur pump so it's always being fed. Also helps with bleeding and filling system here is my caselabs nova I'll be swapping all the parts over from. As well as my caselabs s8 with a d5 res combo that I counter sunk into the mid plate something similar could be done I suppose with the bh4/bh2 with a short res tube. Mind you this is all mitx builds as the matx is gonna take up a lot more space

I used the stock pump mount to trace the 4 bolt holes and the 2.5 inch d5 pump hole and drilled them out into the case mid plate to sink the pump into it

Here is a pump res seperate on my nova
