Yep, it was one of the only ways to make it fit. I though about that when I decided that I didn't want to pay for the Apogee Drive II. I got to thinking that if some big company can make a pump/block combo, surely I can too. I'll be using some 11mm straight rotary adpaters to connect pump to block, pump to res, and res to 3-way splitter. I'll only actually have 2 tube runs going to the radiator.
I was feeling quite good last night after using a Dremel on metal for the first time, and finding a really awesome loop order that fit almost perfectly.
The only problem is that reservoir. It provides no bubble removal so the air bubbles get sucked right back in to the loop. Going to have to really play with it to get all the bubbles out. I might have to pre-fill all the components then really rotate the case in every direction.
For now I plugged the pump in to my Scythe fan controller and running at about 80% for short bursts with a 24-pin jumper trying to de-aerate.
