I think in this case it would look good.

I would say it would depend on your color scheme.

Is it considered bad taste to mix colors of fittings in a single water loop?

How about something like this?

pump res combo bolted to either back of the drive cage or motherboard tray? Bitspower has one that bolts to the floor as well.

it's very interesting, take a look.


Awesome! +1 thumb.gif


I have a g1/4 tap (and bit) and eplastic.com is 10 minutes from my home. Gonna try this biggrin.gif. Thicker wall may also help w/ the bends smile.gif. Thanks again mate thumbsupsmiley.png

I thought about that XSPC pump/res combo, but cannot figure out how to decouple/isolate it from transmitting energy through the motherboard tray.

Found this pump mounting base from EK, it allows the pump and top or pump/res to just sit on the included vibration absorbing feet or I thought maybe using some .5inch Sorbothane hemispheres or a Shoggy sandwich cutting out the middle so the D5 would slip right inside.





So then I could go with this EK top without a reservoir or this EK top/res they match the dimensions of the base perfectly.





Thank you for the responses...

Which brings up another question, would it be easier to just add a small reservoir to this plan? The first idea was to dry-fit the loop measure and cut the tubing then assemble and fill the loop outside of the rig, bleed all the air bubbles (using a separate PSU) out the top of the radiator's two extra ports, refill, seal the loop and then mount then entire sealed loop into the rig just like an AIO.

Then removing the loop for maintenance. It's only a simple 3 component 3 lines of tubing 6 fittings.

I think it can be done, but not certain what I'm gaining by avoiding a reservoir, increased pressure?

Now it seems like constructing the loop the traditional way in the computer and using a res would be so much simpler.

I'll just create a thread "Custom AIO, Can It Be Done?" and not clutter B-Negative's cool thread here. Thanks guys. smile.gif

I guess it depends on how you want to do your maintenance. Having a small reservoir makes it much easier to top off your water, as water WILL evaporate over time. A loop that size will have zero issues with flow or pressure, so that is non issue.

Can it be done? I'm sure it can, but meh.

Hah, neither here nor there, I get ya man, guess I'm hesitant to take the full leap into water cooling and leaving the comfort of my H100i. smile.gif


It's like a blanket....


I'll order the small reservoir tonight from PPCS.

Look at the Swiftech MicroRes. Very small and very versatile. There is also the Bitspower Multi-Z 40 res

Make sure you have a variable speed pump w/ a reservoir that small. Also make sure it comes with/you order an anti-vortex fitting for it.
