You are running yours from the CPU header's PWM signal for control then I assume?

Keep us posted on how you get them setup once the honeymoon period with the newness is over.

You may want to just set the pumps to a constant speed in bios or on a fan control program so that constant speed changes don't drive you nuts.

Yeah, at power up the water is shooting into the res like crazy, but then it changes to the nice trickle you see in the video I posted.


I've not had one of those reservoirs to take apart and look at, but I'd bet that not all the returning coolant is actually going up the pipe.

I'd expect that the greater percentage of it is returned well below the coolant surface level and only a portion becomes the waterfall, otherwise, there'd be just too much aeration taking place most of the time.


For some reason, all the interest in the waterfall effect has me seriously looking at playing around a bit with some different jet tube hole patterns with it in a vertical res.

I've got my 24V powered D5S pump to experiment with, might be rather interesting biggrin.gif

To your first question.. its kind of apples to orange comparison. Anything can leak (and thats why you leak test) but I wouldnt say one is anymore likely then the other. I had a leak with my hard acrylic but that was because one of my tubes wasnt passed the second o-ring. As long as they are passed the second oring it wont be a problem (bp c47s).

No idea what silicone rings are. I just used c47s, acryling tubing, heat gun, and the rubber piece to go inside of the tube while I was bending it.

Is there another inexpensive case that hold that much gear?
I run 2x 360, 240, and120 rads.


If something shows up damaged from Newegg. Return it. Contact customer service, they'll send you a shipping label for the damaged case and a new case.

I need help folks. I need somebody to talk me out of replacing my perfectly fine Corsair 540 with a Caselabs M8 (along with shipping to Europe) for no other reason than I want it.

Do you have a significant other? They can do a far better job at this than we can LMAO

You should totally get the M8. You NEED it. IT needs you! thumb.gif

Dude I build in my one bedroom apartment on my desk... My girlfriend has been nagging me for months to finish the build and clean up my ****. I've really taken my time with this build so shes understandably upset. Anyway, having a garage to make a mess out of would be awesome.

The only thing about thinner rads is they're generally optimized for either slower fans or faster fans, where thicker rads can handle both.

Agreed. Except I wouldn't include the GTS. It would only perform better if you were using high speed fans. It is a terrible radiator if you care at noise even in the slightest.

In my experience pumps almost always ramp up when using CPU_Header, even when set to a constant %. Rather annoying, it's why I went with the Aquaero.
