Okie. I have it installed into my old reservoir. I had to chop the bottom of the basket I used as a base to sit it on, it was too wide for my ice chest reservoir.
I am going to have to work on my dimensions a bit I think, and/or add a second pump. I am just not seeing a flow rate that I am comfortable with. So far my temps are ok, but I just don't have a warm fuzzy about this set up yet. However I can see the potential and the temps so far have been equal to my old bong, with no fan. The only noise right now is the humm of my d5 pump and a little trickling noise. I can see it getting annoying fast and am thinking about how to fix this.
Here is a pic of it sitting in the reservoir. I trimmed 6" off the risers, taking them down to 18" in an attempt to increase flow rate. It did not work as well as I would have liked. I will be adding a d4 pump to the loop as soon as I am able to.
Ok. I have trimmed up the microfiber towels I am using as a wick material on my risers to match their new 18" height. Here is a pic of the current version of it. It looks pretty much the same, only a little bit shorter.
I am seeing temps equal to my tower bong without a fan. I am going to put a fan onto it tomorrow I think. By trimming the wick material, I ended up stopping all noise from it. I can not hear my pump over the case fans in my antec 1200. I have them turned to half way up rpm wise. Honestly it is a little disconcerting not being able to hear my rig. I got very used to the sound of my bong and I keep checking my temps every other minute to be sure I have water flow. I suppose I'll get used to it eventually.
