This is an entirely different PC. The one you saw on reddit was my Editing PC. I need to take a look and see how much it would cost to grab everything. I would need front and back + Front cover and new side doors for both sides.

^ I Barely Had Enough Tubing. I just Made it with zero extra tubing.





^ I was trying for a Darker Blue, I just couldn't get the color any darker.



^ So Much for Seeing the flow Wheel. I had an extra one laying around. I would be a bit annoyed if I paid for it for this build and I couldn't see anything.



^ Then I ran out of Fluid. That one 60mm radiators holds allot.

So far the only issue is with the Hardware Labs 240 SR2. It's a bit noisy when the liquid goes up and empty's into the radiator. I'm hoping it's because I didn't have enough liquid and theirs air in the loop.

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't had the PC standing up yet. Since I don't have enough fluid yet. I want to say No. I will see shortly.

According to information supplied to me by the company. Their is no need to drain the loop The coolant is designed to never be drained. Why theirs no drain found in my loop. If I need to theirs a port under the res I can use to drain everything out.

As long as you have some kind of anti vibration attached between the Rad & bracket. You will not hear it. Plus the fans will muffle most of the sound even if you have no anti vibration material. I always design my PC to be deadly silent, My fans don't even hit 900 rpms. You can not even hear if it's on or not.

It's the second time using this pump. I have one pump in my Gaming Rig as seen in this build and another in my video editing build, They both been perfect. Not to mention most of the D5 pumps are just re-branded. If you buy the pump from say AlphaCool it will be the same if you bought it from Swiftech.
