be quiet dark base pro 900 - Page 6

post #51 of 54
Just gone the same route: went from non-WC Corsair 780T to Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 Pro, but the case was so compromised I had to give up and am now part way through a Case Labs Magnum SMA8 build.

I had high hopes for the DB9P, but I couldn't get the 360x60mm rad to fit due to hitting the top of the MB (and the BR burner had to go as well), couldn't drop the MB down for the rad to fit without hitting the PSU, and I'd already had to hack my PSU cable because of the ridiculous cabling fitting/cabling arrangement for the PSU. Nice looking case, quite quiet, good for a simple build, but for me it was too much hassle to achieve what I wanted (I know others have more patience and skills than and have done some great builds).

Hey guys, how big of a tube reservoir would be able to fit in this case?

I'm thinking about purchasing this reservoir pump combo but I'm concerned it will be too large for the case:

I want to use the top of the reservoir as an inlet so there has to be enough room for a fitting.

Thanks for the help.

Would be possible if the top of the case was empty. With a rap up top and maybe even just fans it's not possible. I have purchased an XSPC 270 photon d5 pump combo and it barely fits with a rad with the top being sealed. But I would be able to change the pumps speed because it would sit too low so I haven't installed.

I've been running this case since September. It was a PITA to setup especially since Im using it inverted and my PSU has a carrying handle on which made it impossible to mount to the PSU caddy. took about 6 hours to get this thing together but all in all Im happy with it.

Specs:
Intel Core i7 5960X
Asus Rampage V Extreme
EVGA Supernova 1500
3x EVGA GTX 980
Samsung SM951 M.2 SSD (system)
WD Green 3TB (storage)
Crucial 525GB SSD (file sharing)
Corsair H110 liquid cooler
16GB (4x4) Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 2800MHz (2 sticks blew so using 16GB of generic RAM now)







And the server that sits next to it


I really like your inverted build : )

Just bought mine (preowned but brand new) for 180€, including 3x 140mm ML fans from corsair. I just sell fans and total price was around half of the original. Good deal IMO. I already tilted mobo inverted and now I plan radiators. With mobo inverted, 45mm 420mm rad should fit to top along with 420 30mm thick in the front. I have 5960X/X99M WS (matx)/2x Titan XP (2016) : >
