Weren't the improvements in Aurora 2 done solely for that purpose? I was under the impression, if not then I might just have to just pour in some aurora and give it a test run! biggrin.gif
I rarely keep the same fluid in a loop for 6months. I will consider testing the aurora now and when I do rigid tubing I'll analyze how bad or good that turned out.

I don't know about you but when I stare at aurora 2 it is just so damned hypnotizing frown.gif

A2 makes significant improvements over original Aurora, but it's still going to fall out of suspension if you have a massive or complex loop like geggeg said.

I'd still consider it a show fluid, but with a simple loop, you can get significant longer life than you couldcould before

So I want to use the 120.3 sidemount (maybe with a radiator one day) but that means I can't use the included HDD bays...hmm...I want both tongue.gif
The S8 came with some rather nice HDD screw/grommets so I wanted to used them to good effect...this is what I did:



The only thing I need to do to is organise some more custom length SATA power cables so I can run them both underneath the SSDs and keep everything neat. The SATA data cables will have the white parts painting in the same gold now this is done. I will be mounting the WD Black HDD to the chassis behind these SSDs on the left side (under the graphics card) in a vertical manner when I get a chance.

Edit: those two circles in pencil are to indicate where the fan cutouts on the bottom of the case are. If I don't work within them the screws holding the SSDs would hit them and the plate would not fit flush on the case as per stock fitment.

Do I have to make a cut out for tubes running down to the pedestal or is there couple of holes that are already cut? Cause I'm getting the S5 with pedestal middle of this month.

Very cool! SSDs are awesome for mounting in more "non-standard" locations.

I just picked up Mayhems Aurora 2 Tharsis Red for my build. I should be filling my loop somewhat soon.
