As for the res it's mounted as low as it can be on that pack panel so the only option would be to mount it on top of the fan on the bottom rad as suggested by annul. I already have this thing which i think is meant to work that way as well - https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-uni-pum...m-fan-vertical
I'm not sure if you have seen my post edit, but a thick gasket is probably also an option for you.

No i didn't see it, thanks for pointing it out it looks like you should do the job nicely.


I've now run in to another annoying problem. The 30mm screws that came with my radiators aren't long enough to go throught the EK Pump bracket, through the fan and in to the radiator. Once its through the bracket and fan there's only about 1-2mm of screw left. It's almost certainly down the Corsair ML Pro fans being too thick.

You have ton of space with that case and it is just a matter of planning. I was thinking of getting that case too. Here is my current build on a Inwin 303 with Hardware labs radiators. In fact you can install 2 60mm + another 360 GTS X flow back side of radiators if you plan just to use a single gpu.

Always remember loop order does not matter as long as you have a steady supply of water from reservoir to pump. Run the shortest path of tubing into blocks and radiators traveling inside the loop.


I would install the 60mm radiator at the bottom in push fans.

Use the uni mount pump reservoir bracket above SR2.

Install the 30mm radiator on top in push fans or Dual fans in push pull.

Loop order is Pump to GPU > CPU> Top radiator> SR2 > back to reservoir.


Mount the drain valve with soft black tubing at the front back side of SR2. I think you still have enough space to use a 90 degree rotary fitting.

It sure is a tight fit, only about 30mm between the GPU port and the rad. It's not enough to fit a regular compression fitting which is all i bought but i guess a 90 degree fitting would work. Would probably look neater if i used another 90 degree in the rad too. I imagine they would both need to be rotary's too?

The rest of my fittings are Barrow so i guess these would do the job - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Barrow-G1...cAAOSwPYZU5UtR

It'll be super tight as the fitting is 26mm according to the diagram.

Hi,
Yeah put it back on top that's way too high for the bottom.

Aside from the tight working space what's the problem with it being that high? It'd make my life easier as far as a drain port goes having the multi port rad on the bottom.

Hi,
Not really sure why you're not putting a rad on the front 360mm won't fit there ?

Do you mean upright where i had my res mounted originally?

I did think about that but i'm thinking there might not be enough clearance between it and the other rad. I'll give it a go though and see what happens.

Hi,
Yes rad on front the skinny one with inlet outlet down
Then all you need is a simple T valve and shut off valve for drain.
