on where to mount a D5 pump, with its stock head unit 2 1/2 inch barbs, and the metal plate base? Iits the Koolance 450 pump seen here...

I have included a screenshot of the current state of things...

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions/ideas. I am not someone that does custom brackets or anything I wouldn't know where to begin with that sort of modifying.


If it still the standard D5 base, you can bolt it down to the case below your reservoir. Or you can use a mounting bracket. I'm using one of these:




You can get it in 120 or 140 and mount it on any 120 or 140 mount. In your case, you can mount it on your rad below.


There's other types of brackets and mounts to use:

On recommendation, move your beautiful res up if you can.

Good lord what a simple solution. Thanks a ton. Looking at various options now and will be ordering one for sure, since I do not know if my reservoir is built to attach a pump to the bottom. But have loads of room for that 120mm option.

That will be the way I go I think, unless someone can tell me if there is a way to mount the D5 to the bottom of the reservoir you see in the picture on the original request for help.

Thanks for the suggestion on raising the reservoir up higher, I am certain I can, it screws in to the case holes (where the posts are currently) and there are a few in a row going straight up made for very large motherboards I assume


I will be filling it with a Mayhems Pastel, which isn't transparent...Hindsight I suppose...but I am thinking about not filling it all the way to the top and having the coolant flow down so the coils still show, I'll see, but I'm hoping it'll look nice one way or the other.


EDIT:
Thanks a Ton wermad, I placed an order for one of these http://www.performance-pcs.com/alphacool-pump-mount-universal-for-120-140mm-fans-radiators.html , has to cross a border, but I can tape it down in the mean time. I still have other parts on the way as well so whats another 2 weeks before it.'s fully up and running thumb.gif

Hello, how are you?
I can get an 800D in mint condition for a sweet price.
But the 800D was Corsair's first PC case and it is a couple of years old...
I was wondering if this case is still a good option today? Or is the lack of SSD mount brackets and other "modern" features a let down?
For the same price, would you take the 800D or a Fractal R5?

Cheers!

I believe the hotswap bays come w/ 2.5 mounting. Not sure if the connectors will line up w/ the hotswap pcb though. You can always remove the hotswap system and just keep the cage.


Are you planning on air or water cooling? Going w/ a big loop w/ multiple components? Then the 800D is your ticket.

If you want a few benefits of newer cases (not much if the 800D has the updates), try the 540 air. Its not as big like the 800D and its full atx vs matx on the R2. at $100, you have ton of option for cases.



















Going to shoot ppcs.com a message on a quote for some demciflex filters for top and side vented areas. The rear fan I'll just stick in a 140mm demciflex. I may just go w/ some of the filters already but a quote is just an email away smile.gif

Damn, I saw your post went to your thread, and I'm getting inspired a few packages came in, and I have been humming and hawing all morning to go do some stuff. I'm just not sure I want to get it up and running when I know once the second video card comes in I'll have to unhook some stuff. hm. maybe ...I switched tubing size so I had to buy all new fittings, but a compression fitting is just a barb if you add a clamp if the ID is tha same I guess. I wish I had your creative power, that floor is nice. and thinking about getting quotes on custom (I assume custom) filters ...I never would have thought to do that, it has been bugging me on what I could do to prevent dust build up with so many holes everywhere.

Need to go look see if I have what I need. (I'm thinking right now some quick disconnects I have if I can just add clamps and remove the compression piece. maybe will work to avoid the disassemble for when new card arrives.

EDIT: I just checked tracking on the D5 housing with threads for your own fittings (Koolance) not the standard barb housing and about 8 fittings , its due to arrive Monday.excited I Was not expecting it that soon. biggrin.gif

Don't you have your top fans as intake? That should create positive air pressure, causing air to escape from those vents. Technically you shouldn't need filters.

That rear fan is set for intake. Only the front fan is set for exhaust, hence why I need filters on those vents.

Front is filteres, why not have them move air into the case using the front as intake? Puts the rear vents in perfect use. thumb.gif

psu:








That front is the only exhaust. My psu's exhausts can expel through that area too.

Hey man would you mind telling me please ....what is the measurement from the fan side of the V1000 to the closest cable plug , this is because i want to know if i can fit a 25 mm fan under it , mounted in the 750D
I can work out from there if i have any additional space , as the PSU sits on the raised PSU tray bumps giving a fan an extra 4 mm clearance , and i even have the option of making that larger because i am making my own bottom fan mounts , cutting the bottom out and putting in some 140 mm fan mounts.

This will just help my planing somewhat before i get the PSU , and this is looking more like my PSU all the time , as it is a very good PSU , and it is awesome that this PSU is only 170 mm long !! very attractive quality , otherwise i would just get the Seasonic 1200 W
