Sorry for the double post, but it's different info I guess. Nano S Loop time.

Mounting the radiator in the top of a Nano S is tight, but by trimming to corners of the fans it'll clear the RAM. Only drawback is the fans are pull only as I run intake on all radiators (if this goes against what your preference is, feel free to start a thread on that).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Since the res was going to be right under the top radiator, filling/bleeding it was a challenge. So I epoxied a piece of tubing into it that intersected the port on the back. This will allow air to escape basically from the top of the res, and allow the res to be filled completely from a port in the base. The fill/drain port comes out the back, there's a plugged ball valve on the back, I'll fill it through a length of flex hose screwed into the ball valve.

Kinda hard to see:

Here it is mounted up:

Tight fit at the top:

Not my finest work, but it's kind tight. A lot of the bends are so close together they kinda run together - hard to make a bend without loosening up the previous bend.

Loop so far, I'll finish it up and fill it tomorrow.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words. I don't really like the loop - I like how much stuff I was able to hook up with hard tube, and it'll work, but artistically/aesthetically I think it's lacking. Now if I can bleed it and have no leaks I might like it better biggrin.gif

That's why I prefer the R5. When I game, I just open the door. Otherwise I close it for silence.

Hmm, are motherboard screws/standoffs a standard thread?

Filled, bled, did a little benching - all seems great. I am very pleased with how quiet and cool running this rig is. And pretty stout for such a small rig thumb.gif

Still a few bubbles clinging to that vent tube I added and some on the vortex breaker, but the loop is otherwise air free. Spent some time dialing in fan curves and stuff, just about perfect now.
