Very beautiful build. keep up the great job

I'm so in love w/ the M8, though a few things are holding me back in getting one.
-The right side front does not support a rad, CL said they might make a bracket for it later.
-CL just showed a new top for adding additional fans for a push/pull setup. Though, its not available yet.
-CL said there are more mods and accessories coming up in the next few months, so I going to wait to see what they have in store for this lovely case

It did absolutely nothing. I don't know why. The screws feel a little too small... there's no pressure whatsoever when screwing them in.

I just ordered those IandH brackets as well as a 150mm reservoir instead. That will take care of my size problems and will hopefully make it easier to mount: better brackets, less weight.

The EK brackets are fine. I think you might have it installed incorrectly. If I remember correctly you have to use an nut on the inside when installing the side screw that tightens the arms. Your other solution will work as well

Thanks all!

@Nordar: I would have done that but the directions didn't say to. I got the IandH stealth ones instead.

Here's some pictures!

The 3M dual lock holds the pump on perfectly. I will have no issues with this whatsoever. I am worried a bit about the clamps though. I had issues with the EK ones I had because they wouldn't even tighten. These ones are quite tight but I can still pull the pump off with a tad bit of force. Is it supposed to be that way? I would certainly be afraid to bring it to a LAN or something for that reason...









Hidden tube!



My loop goes:

Reservoir down to Pump.
Pump up to Radiator.
Radiator over to Radiator on other side of case.
Radiator down to CPU.
CPU down to CPU.
GPU down and up to Reservoir on other side of case.

I have 2xMCP35x pumping through since it's quite a large loop.

I AM having issues as posted here: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...l#post12409231

When I turn the pumps on to leak test (with the lid on the reservoir), every 15-30 seconds there will be some water going up the tube and out the top. Not a lot, but enough to make a paper towel wet. Sometimes it's more than other times.

When I turn it off the pump, more water will gush out the top and into the case. That's a worse problem and I don't know how to solve it.

I would really appreciate some help figuring this out because if I want to let the pumps just run, I will have to babysit with paper towels for 2 hours to make sure it doesn't drench the case.

The pumps right now are also quite loud, so I am nervous that there is air in there, even though the reservoir is quite full. The reservoir DOES drain ALMOST all of the water out when I turn on the pumps though, and I'm afraid to add more than 3/4 because I don't want it to gush out.

When I took the lid off, it sorta helped but it makes me extremely nervous running it with the lid off. Here is how full it is without the pump running:



Any help would really be awesome guys. Once this is done I can turn the beast on.

Thanks so much for ALL of your dedication and support! I really truly appreciate all of your comments and help throughout this process.

I am thinking you need to just start up the pumps and keep adding water as needed, put the top on and seal the system before removing the cap once it is full so it will not over flow.

What sound is the pump making?
Sound like they are sucking air, or like they are grinding themselves to death?


Great build and nice system btw... I really wish my 700D had a removable mobo tray, guess I could fix that with a number of tools starting with a sawzall

What do you mean grinding!?

like plastic on plastic.... or metal on metal?

really if the pump is making noise it can only make two different noises right?

grinding or sucking

grinding: like gears or parts grinding together

sucking: would sound like you sucking through straw and the glass is basically 99.9% empty, sound of air and water being sucked.

Could it be that the pressure in your loop causes the water to fall and fill up your res? since your res is at the bottom part of your loop, could it just be excess pressure when the system isnt on and have the water settling down?

Im not that knowledgeable about watercooling yet, but planning a loop soon, I've heard it is always better to have the res at the top part of your loop? I dunno for sure, but might give you something to think about. I know there is a limited amount of places to put the res, but just giving my opinion and what i've heard from others.

Good luck !! lookin good though, really like the case and components.

Typically the res should be higher than everything, yes. But in this case it wasn't possible. I have 2x360mm radiators mounted above the res. Most everything else is below it.

I continuously hear noise from what sounds like the CPU block. I'm not sure what to compare it to but it sounds like straining a rag. Idk, it's confusing.

The pump still explodes when the top is on and I shut it off. Not quite sure why. Once I can solve that problem then I will probably just hook it all up.

I just don't know why the CPU block is making so much noise.

Ya it isn't necessary to have the res in any given location, helps, but again not critical.
Res could be even lower than it is and it would still work just fine, if it was all working correctly but you seem to have a problem but from the way you are explaining it I just cant think of why.

The water block could be plugged, clogged etc, if it has a nozzle in the block that nozzle could have been built incorrectly and is blocking flow of water

Troubleshooting water cooling can be tricky I have never really had to do much, all my systems were straight forward and I didn't have any kinks in my system... sorry to hear your system didn't go over without a hitch.
