Thanks!

No problem. I will take more pics tonight when I get home. One thing to note is that it will not work with normal ram. I have the Samsung 30nm stuff that is super short. Even normal low profile memory wont clear without drilling new holes to mount the rad closer to the side panel. Also, there is no room for an optical drive in the upper 5.25" bay. The HDD in the adapter in the second 5.25" bay clears the fan by about 1/4".
It's so little!

Hard drive cage removed from MIDI, GPU VERY HAPPY! 26C idle, 40C load! Removed side panel, and bottom mounted fan, case much more spacious without. smile.gif SSD behind mobo, HDD in 5.25" bays. Want a new PSU now for cable management. Flat rigid PSU cables are awful.

FRACTAL DESIGN R4 OWNERS,

how are the stock fans? Decent airflow? Noise level at the different fan controller settings? Help a brother out one time.

So anyone interested in my setup I'm working on? Should be done today, just gotta pick up some supplies. Had it setup for leak testing last night.

Thats a 280mm Alphacool UT60 in the front. With barely any modding at all.

Yes please. Specs on everything. PC components as well as the WC. Can you get better lighting on the pictures?

This is exactly what I am looking to do for the future case and all. Thank you

I have video of everything also. I will be uploading that pretty soon.

Intel i5 3570K (XSPC Raystorm)
ASUS Maximus V Formula (ThermoFusion block)
EVGA GTX 570 HD (Heatkiller V2)
Corsair HX750 (Misc Sleeving)
Dual DDC1-VC pumps with XSPC Acrylic Head
Alphacool UT60 280mm (60mm Thick)
EK 250mm Tube Res

If I can, I will find someone with a DSLR to take photos. I used a camcorder for the photos.

Okish case fans. Not for water cooling. @ 1000 rpm it's pretty inaudible.

That's great. I'm also planning a LC setup right now. That just gave me an idea actually. Although I wanted to use the top fan mounts for 140mm fans, using a res up there could actually be a better idea. However, I'd combine the pump into the res and maybe use a shorter res so the hose from the rad to the pump won't kink. Which reservoir is it and did you get a separate mount for it or was it included?

EK MultiOption, it comes with it (The mount thingy). Instead of the screw and nut though, I used a fan screw and threaded it into the plastic on the bracket. Also I have no kinks in the line. It's actually my like that is least likely to kink.

I basically used spare parts I had on hand. I wish I had a different pump so I could of mounted it to the res, but I have super tall pumps, so the mounting is odd. If you look they are about the twice the height of a normal MCP355. I however paid half the price of a single MCP355 to get two of these. Which the only difference is the extra volume chamber thing. These are just as powerful. I just had to do custom wiring. As I didn't hook up the RPM switch, I'm just running them at full power, but I will check to see if I can integrate it into the cases fan controller. I'm not sure on the wattage though.

I think that with this LC setup you could use a shorter res with a bitspower modded d5.. I think it will look amazing. Do you know if it's possible to thread in a D5 at the bottom of that res or do you need a pump top? smile.gif

** edit I think I said something stupid ** is there a pump top for the d5 that is sort of circular?
