I can try to snap a few pictures of it. The back is by no means clean at the moment, since I am using Corsairs sleeved cables, and they are miles longer than necessary. I have an ambition of making some custom cables at one point, since this build is close to my "dream build" tongue.gif

About the USB issue. I can more than manage using the USB connections at the motherboard IO plus my screen has a USB hub incorporated. If you need more USB devices I would suggest getting a USB hub. If you want to mod the case, I guess you can place it in the front near the power button, but I would personally not mod a 200£ powder coated case like that biggrin.gif

Care to make some more pictures?
I am curious to how your loop is build up. The picture a few pages back is by no means good to see.

As was mentioned earller it uses M4 bolts to mount so you are best to use a drill bit slightly larger than 4mm. I used a 4.5 and it worked fine. A 3/16 is only slightly larger than 4.5mm. An 11/64 would be fine too.

^^ This.

And if the hole is to large you can always use some rings. I pretty much always use rings anyway to be safe.

On the side note.
I keep trying to silence my D5 pump (Swiftech mcp-655). No matter what I do, it stays the loudest component in my setup. If I lower the speed to slightly below 2 it will get near silent but IMO that is just a tad to slow for a loop with 2 rads, a cpu and a gpu block.

I keep reading about people posting that their pump is silent on speed 5. I don't experience that at all.
Currently it is mounted to the case with the EK uni-holder. So it is mounted on rubber feet. And the holder itself is screwed to the case with some Lamptron Noise-Isolation strip between the holder and the case.

Anyway to silence it more? The sound is resonating through the case or something. The sound is louder when one sits farther away from the PC.
And since it is sitting in the living room it would be cool if it were quieter. A quiet PC was one of the reasons for me switching to water after all. biggrin.gif

It's heat that activates the stuff. +35c iirc. thinking.gif which is why I am hardline and then Copper tubing. thumb.gif

Do you have the link to wermad's post? I can only find one back 2012 which I'm pretty sure he is using the Pro LRT back then.

Yeah the rubber mounts on the EK pumps are good but if the holder is attached to something flimsy like the case wall there is still a lot of vibration transmitted. I found having the pump mounted to the motherboard tray/rear case wall was much louder than having it mounted to a radiator using the EK 120 pump mount. As I have it now it is very quiet at full speed but fully silent pumps at high power is a bit of a water cooling myth/exaggeration.

I just can't/won't believe it is always happening to clear tubing. I've read across the web of people using Advanced LRT tubing and not having an issue at all. Even after 2 years of usage....
Maybe I will contact Primochill to see what they think of it.
So far you're the first person that I know reporting plasticizer problem with Primochill Advanced LRT. Considering how long you have run your loop, you should get a thin film of whitish/yellowish powder sticking on the internal tube wall, not clouding/hazing, unless you clean it before re-assembling the tube in the loop. I'm one of the people who is using the Adv LRT tube for two years without any problem. I did swapped a couple of tubes whenever I pull down my loop for cleaning but there's one or two tubes that still in the loop since day one. No plasticizer problem for me. Water temp always in mid 30s Celsius minimum.

Fully depends on the top and mounting. The D5 for Close Impact was dead silent it was fitting mounted on to the res,a substantial lump of mass, and remained so all the way to full power. The D5 in HeretEK was also silent and that was directly bolted to the chassis. I tend to find Bitspower tops are the quietest overall but my sample size is only 4.

Yeah mine are all very very quiet when mounted correctly but none of my tops/pumps even when just dangling by tubing from my hand were truly zero noise. I could always hear something, and full speed is normally quieter than some of the mid speeds

It is irrelevant once its quieter than the hard drives but people sometimes get a bit hung up on silent vs effectively silent is all I meant.
