Pretty happy with it where it is right now, though I might spray paint some of the internal components in the future to give it a little more custom look. biggrin.gif

Yeah I sort of guesstimated what i should do, i'm a bit afraid to do it, i'm somewhat of a noob with a dremel tool.

Figured I'd ask this here since I know some of us has watercooled a computer on here, but does the res location matter in a case? In my HAF XB, I'm putting it in the bottom half as that's where there's room. Just didn't know if it had to be in line with something or not.

I'm actually really excited to get this thing rolling! I literally have everything now for it, I'm just waiting for my tubing to arrive. Should arrive whenever now as it's in my local USPS sorting facility and from what I've read, mail should be delivered on Monday, so hopefully it should arrive before I leave for the 24th and 25th.

I've never messed with liquid cooling, but I do know a lot about hydraulic systems whish is pretty much the same thing just different use, and I know that the res has to be about the pump if not attached to it but another thing you have to think about is that if the pump is at the bottom of the case then it will be doing a lot more work then if it was at the top because of the liquid weight and that it will take more energy to move the water up but at the same time if its at the bottom then gravity will be helping the liquid back down so pretty much as long as you have a pretty strong pump then either way would work fine as far as I could see

Nice you should post some pics when you get it installed

For closed loop systems at least, you want to try to get the air bubbles stuck in the top of the radiator so they don't travel the through the pump regularly. They recommend holding the pump below the radiator and shaking it a little bit to move the air out.

When I first turned my 920 on, it sounded really bad, but after a minute the air bubbles had moved to the top of the rad and now it's almost silent.

This club lacks pictures of CM Storm Scout 2 builds. I demand pics! I'm gonna be flooding here with Scout 2 Pics of my own in Late January/February but I want to look at more pretty setups.

I actually have a thread going on it.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1302307/build-log-cooler-master-haf-xb-red-gamer-mk2-5-wc-project/0_30

I have some pics in here, will be posting more once I get my tubing in, hopefully tomorrow.

I mean, the pump is at the bottom of the system anyway so I don't think I'll have an issue with air getting in it.

I don't think the 3pin con of the included fan fits on the mobo, not sure but i guess the plastic does not fit the fan connector brackets on the mobo.
For myself i have 0 fans connected to my mobo (except cpu), the 2 upper fans in the top on a fancontroller, the 2 fans on the radiator are both plugged in the cpu fan
And the sidepanal fans are on full power molex, they dont make a sound.
The included fan i placed in the front, its also on molex now and the only fan that's connected to the stealth button.
PS and thanks smile.gif

Thanks for the info thumb.gifthumb.gif

I ended up adding the Dark Knight white led fan to the glass side window in the bottom position. That fan is controlled by my mobo. The others are running thru my cases controller. I'll post pics as soon as I add my 7870
