An according to this testing do you actually recommend for the block to be placed in the 'goofy' instead of regular position?

I just got the D5 X3 pump/res combo intending to mount it as is done in the D Frame Mini drop in kit, but it looks like the Uni-Holder in the drop in kit is different than the one that comes with the the stand alone D5 X3 kit.

My question is, is it possible to get the Uni-Mount from the D Frame Mini drop in kit separately?

Thanks in advance. Trying to get this build wrapped before law school ramps up.

I'm going to quote myself to provide a follow up now that I've talked to EK support a bit. Igor, the support tech I've been speaking with has said that the EK Uni-Holder v2 that I received with my X3 kit should be the same as both the v3 model and the one that is included in the D-Frame Mini kit and therefore should be a straight fit.

I don't know if I'm inept or if there's some sort of misunderstanding between Igor and myself but there isn't a single set of holes on my D-Frame Mini that match up with the holes in the Uni-Holder. Can I get some guidance here? The EK assembly instructions show a third hole on the D5 Uni-Holder but Igor said that that was in error, that all the D5 Uni-Holders are the same. What am I missing here?

Igor has it wrong, you are right.

Thanks for the reply Akira. It's odd but only one of the standoffs can screw back in. The holes that the others would screw in to are smooth with no thread. I realize now, that I didn't replace that standard mobo backplate before offering up the screws. That allowed too much of the screw length to enter the block and has literally twisted the threads out of the water block.


That'll teach me for working on the PC after too little sleep the night before!. Totally my fault and I've ordered a replacement from the web shop. Any idea how long orders are taking to process?.

Ok, not crazy, which is good! +rep. That leads to my original question then: is it possible to get/buy from you guys the Uni-Holder used in the D-Frame Mini kit? I'll pay whatever I need to, within reason.

But its there for exactly that reason.. whenever you want to heat/boil any liquid (in a cup), you should use this rod.. it will make sure the liquid boils IN the cup; not "explode" afterwards when touched.

Hmmm, never seen that here in Au. I wouldn't have expected the general public to do enough distilled heating for something like that to be a thing.

Nobody really cares what you do with with your water, or microwave, or special sensitive radiators that catch cooties from water.

what a lot of us do care about is getting accurate and useful info on these pages. Many people read these threads besides the ones that post and many more in the future will as they search for particular information.
Instead of cranking the ego, dismissing the risk and providing more and more supposed ways to alleviate it that don't actually address the issue you could just recognise that its not all about you. Its about all the beginners and young people reading.

There are people that roll their eyes and dismiss the need for wearing eye protection, seatbelts, helmets etc etc and they always know better than everyone too.
Ugghhh, why should I have to reach over and put a seatbelt on to reduce the injury in a crash

Ugghhh, why shouldn't I tell unsuspecting people on the internet to heat water in a way that can potentially superheat it and cause them serious injury.

Instead you could always simply post something like ... OK, it works fine for me but anyone else maybe take some precautions.
Its not hard to do when its not all about yourself.

Never once acted like it "was all about me". I'm not even taking this personal because I like you want to post knowledgeable factual informative facts.

I cannot help it if people cannot take reasonable safety steps to accomplish a task such as boiling distilled in the microwave. It doesn't take long (maybe a minute or so depending on the size of the container. That ends as water being near or at the temp of boiling. Apologies if you're taking me quite literal and I realize that what I said could be taken that way. But heating water in a microwave is not dangerous so long as you do so using common sense.

And no I am not one for running round a table with scissors pointing in the air either.

My bad and hopefully this conversation doesn't offend your sensibilities any further. If it does just PM me and we can continue off thread so as to not further derail the thread. smile.gif

I cleaned my rads (acool) in the past by pumping distilled through and had gunk in my blocks. So then I stayed using hot water and I want sure if it made a difference but I had much less 'gunk'

This build I used Mayhems Blitz Pro. Probably not necessary to use their specific mix but the Part1, which I believe is a pH 2.2 phosphoric acid solution, cleaned my new and old rads to the point they looked shiny inside (wash was room temperature). I'd rather not pay the premium Mayhems but I'll be cleaning my radiators with acid from now on.

Be careful about how long to leave the acid in for and make sure to flush a couple times

If the item is in stock, it usually take a few days to process until shipment.
