Pump mounting in Mercury S5

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am working on an S5 build (my first adventure with any Case Labs stuff). I have an Aquacomputer Aquastream pump with an attached Aqualis resevoir. The height of the reservoir means that I can't mount the combo in the drive area. It looks like my only option, unless I'm missing something, is to mount it on the floor of the case. There are no holes there that are suitable, and I am not really into the idea of drilling any. Are there accessories that would be particularly useful to help me mount this pump/resevoir combo? If not (or even if so), what other options do I have?

I have a pedastal, but I would really rather not put the pump down there; I want to keep all of the stuff other than a couple of resevoirs in the main section of the case. Thanks. (Although, let's say I'm open to putting it in the pedastal-- in that case, what accessory would I need to mount it down there?)

Thanks!

Options ...

- mount sideways in drive area
- mount on floor in front of mobo
- mount just behind power switch

For mounting ... if you don't want to drill holes ... look for the Bottom Accessory Mounts. That should attach to the floor 120 (or is it 140?) fan hole.

Thanks, and, by the way, cute dog.

So, dumb question: I would then drlill the holes in that mount?

And, maybe even dumber question: how do I make the holes "threaded" so I can use a screw with them?

Thanks. =)

Thanks (re dog).

Yes re drilling holes in mount piece. Re threaded ... that is beyond me but try googling 'threading tool' (or something like that). I just use a bolt on the other side.
