Thanks for that but I live in a 3rd world country called the UK where we don't have as much choice as the US. Its looking like - connections to bottom of res then fillport to the top.

Here is the page of Phobya Balancer images https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Phobya+Balancer&hl=en&tbo=u&rlz=1C1KMZB_enGB511GB511&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ei=3njuUM7_NZO00QXM0YDIAw&ved=0CDsQsAQ&biw=1920&bih=955

I'm happy to say that I just got my first loop all set up! Took me the entire day to work on it but I enjoyed MOST of it. I really messed up where I stripped a screw on my video card and decided to drill it out. I BROKE the first drill bit which just barely touched the PCB which felt like a mini heart attack. I then had troubles popping the rivets for my hard drive cage, but i'm satisfied with it all!



I used a dual bay res & d5 pump by XSPC, XSPC Raystorm waterblock, and the XSPC Razor GTX 680 block for my 670 FTW+.
For the radiators, I used an 80mm thick 240 in the front, and a 45mm thick 120 in the rear, both using push pull.

Hottest core for my CPU @ stock is 43C from 5 minute of Prime95, and my GPU maxes at 42C from 5 minutes of Furmark.
Does anyone know how these temps are for my setup? I had to remount the CPU block several times before getting it right, and I also forgot a giant thermal pad for 12 tiny vrms on the vid card! doh.gif

Would you recommend me draining the loop and re-doing the tubing for the video card just for the sake of easiness, or should I attempt to put the thermal pad on while the block is still connected to the loop?

There is no right way up for a res,you set it up any way that the ports are in the best position for use.

The tube is for lowering the inlet to below the waterline if you are using a top return feed or lifting the return feed away from the pump inlet if you have all the inlet/outlets on one end of the res.

Hey guys, I have a question again!

How would someone go about filling a reservoir if it is laying horizontally?

EDIT: Or would you fill it up first, screw in the stop, then place it in the clips laying down? Wait, I think I just answered my own question...

Does anyone have experience with this?

I have had many res on their side...





I tend to tilt the case so the fillport is on top then fill...remembering to plug the fillport when you lay it down

How wide is that rad? And how tall is it with the fillports included? Im trying to do the exact same thing as you with the monsta 240 but i have the top 3 5.25 bays filled.
Thanks!

Another little question- my case is a HAF-X and has a plastic box for the cables. I am mounting the pump inside the box and I want it as close to the HDD cage as possible but the bottom of the case is solid here. The Phobya pump is supplied with a double sided adhesive pad - is this a good enough method to mount it? The pump also has a couple of plastic brackets but they would involve drilling holes in the case or mounting it on the ventilation grille which is less than ideal.

Take out the bottom fan mesh then bolt the pump on to the grill using a couple of washers.

I know I could do that but since the outlet is on top the pump I would need to cut a hole in the top of the cable box since I like to have it covering as much as possible. As it is, if I mount it beside the HDD cage I may be able to get away without any cutting, plus the supplied brackets don't look very secure even if they are screwed down.Also I have noticed on photos that it looks as though some guys pumps aren't actually fixed down at all so I may be worrying about nothing, but I want to do it to the best of my ability.

That pad is more than enough.
