post #14001 of 20810
Awhile back on this thread, I had read there's an issue with the EK XE radiators leaking at the end tanks from expansion. I just wanted to check if the warranty on those radiators is the same as the Predator. If my radiator explodes spraying water all over the case will my parts be replaced.

That XE expansion was a very small number, less than ten if I remember correctly. Pretty sure EK would take it case by case, but would not let that unfortunate happenstance forego your purchase.

Good to remember though, I have two XE 240s and a CE 280, all ready to get wet, and blitzed this week. thumb.gif





These pumps below seem like way more power than I need for single CPU single GPU short loop. Why do these photos somehow find there way to me and then force me to question previous hardware decisions? Why? Why? Why is the Mango? tongue.gif

edit addendum: New rule at the EK Club: you must add a humorous (causing lighthearted laughter and amusement) SNL or movie reference to each post highlighting your current EK build circumstance and/or dilemma or recent EK purchase. biggrin.gif

So I've never used a top before, as I have always used res' combos. I have a D5 vario (not EK unfortunately) that I have laying around. I was going to sell it to a friend, but it's been over a few months since he's contacted me. Well I may just use it in my loop because I believe I'm having air flow issues. My loop is reaching delta temps of about 15c. I'm ordering a koolance flow meter, but I'm also going to order the top as well to save money on shipping, etc.

Now, I see that EK only sells the D5 revo top, and not the square resigns anymore. Would I be all set to just buy the revo top, and that's it? I've never used one before, and I'm wanting to know if I need to buy anything else. Like I said, all I have is the D5 vario.

Thanks all

The D5 Vario is the same no matter where you buy it from.. yes all you need is the top everything you need is in it.

The REVO top will work just fine with your D5 Vario, I have both the REVO and the older EK tops.


PPCS still has some of the older black acetal D5 tops left, 17 to be exact, but they make you buy another D5, just to get the XTOP.

I like the older EK square tops and square XRES since they both offered four corners to attach soft feet and isolate the noise.

Okay thanks. Also, could I use the UNI holder and mount it to my 560 rad? I'm trying to research it, but the pictures only show it directly on a fan.

Thanks. Yeah I saw that, but I don't need the full thing. I already have the PC. All I need is the top, mainly to improve flow in my loop. I'm already at the top of my budget, and this really isn't needed, but I want to get better temps.

I would think you could mount it to a rad but not 100% sure as i have not done this
post #14008 of 20810
Does anyone know if you can mount the revo D5 to a radiator Using the UNI regular holder? All I see in pics is it mounted to the actual fan. I'm placing it in the bottom compartment of my case , and the fans on the rad are on the outside.so I would need to mount it to the actual rad, UNLESS, I actually have space on the ground lol

If it fits in the fan holes it will fit a rad.

EK makes at least (3) 120mmx120mm UNI mounts that allow direct mounting of a REVO D5 assembly to fans or rads.


http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-uni-pump-bracket-120mm-fan.html

http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-uni-pump-bracket-120mm-fan-vertical.html


The older XRES UNI mount also works if you have one.


and these 50/70 mounts are great if you want to change the mounting angle by 90 degrees, just get out your sketchpad and start designing. One of the reasons I gravitated towards EK when building my first loop 18months ago, so many mounting choices. makes a big difference when designing a loop with the right amount of ZEN space and air flow considerations. thumb.gif


http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-uni-holder-50-70-reservoir-brackets.html


EK maintains some tremendous engineers. thumb.gif


This is the UNI mount I'm working with currently.
