just a though
My P1 in drops down from the Rad....you think just put a T in it and a line for fillport?

Hmm hadn't thought of that, but yeah...in single pump mode, you could probably use the high P in as a filler port off the back. A T-line might work slowly, but it's one of those that would have to be completely filled plus some.

true...but i am running series so its a moot point for me but hopefully it will help others. I have been using an 90 degree fitting int the front fill port to top it off....work like a charm. I use my big syringe that I bought from my local hobby store. They are usually used to fill up tanks on nitro RC car...(I have a T-maxx 3.3 btw) that with some fuel line works great. Great for sucking the water out too.

Good idea, I might try the 90 as well. I spill too easy, and that would allow me to have a length of tubing "Away" from the PC to fill...

My only complaint is the 3mm LEDS dont fit snug....they come out very easily. I bought my from performance pcs. Did you have the same problem? I had to secure mine with electrical tape. Cant see it or anything just a little annoying.

Actually, I just used 5mm LED and pushed them up to the acrylic, then taped them. I found that running a strip of tape around the perimeter to block that light was also a good thing.

But not sure on the LED socket, mine were way to big to try. I used some TFC 5mm LEDs I had in my parts bin that I got as samples a long time ago.

Tape should work or a dab of hot glue I suppose. I just used electrical tape myself since it's easy to remove.

I know most people dont use TEC's anymore but this dual pump/res would be ideal to run a loop with this chiller: http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...c-chiller.html

I would be willing to try this if I had someone to fund it. LOL. I have enough overhead in my PSU to run this and the necessary rad capacity (5x120mm). Once could make a pretty awesome cooling loop. Needs a power controller though...

Edit: @martin: I used a single strip of Black elctrical tape to hold them in by wrapping it around the acrylic. You are right, it blocks the leaking light nicely.

Thanks for the link to the TEC review, I read about them a while ago but dismissed them having seen plenty of problems for people trying to use them on i7's due to the high temps they generate causing temps to go backwards once the TEC is heat saturated. Unless someone comes up with a more automated and safer TEC system they will remain even more fringe than us water coolers!
