In case any of you arn't familiar with the pump I am talking about<b></b>:<br />
<a href="http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=175&cat=4&page=1" target="_blank">http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...5&cat=4&page=1</a><br />
<br />
I am looking into upgrading my watercooling. At the moment, I am using a Corsair Nautilus 500 and the only thing I have changed is a fan swap. I want to upgrade my pump and tubing, but it seems that the DD12V-D5 won't fit (too tall) into my enclosure. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am considering buying a new radiator if I need one as well, it depends. This seems to be a fairly popular setup, so I thought I would ask around. Should I need to make a new enclosure, how should I go about it? Are there any guides out there?<br />
<br />
Right now I have all of my components outside of my case. I haven't read into putting them inside. Are there any guides out there for this? How do I secure the components and are the means that I use the secure them permanent? They won't hinder me from making any hardware upgrades, will they? Also, since the pump needs to be elevated (or so I think), where in the case should I secure it? How easy is it to move my computer around and what should I be careful of when I do it?

I would sell the complete system and use the funds to pay for part of a custom setup.

And just what would that custom system look like? It would be nice if you knew of any of the tutorials I previously requested.

Scroll about half way down this thread, I left some pictures and a description of what I did to mine...It was a waste of money, but it turned out to be a high performance rig.If you want to go to a internal one read the Stickies here, they are a good place to start...<a href="http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/118407-thermochill-rads-worth-their-price.html" target="_blank">Are Thermochill rad's worth their price - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net</a>

Honestly, just pay the extra few bucks and buy the nice D5. It costs more, yes, but you aren't stuck with a paperweight when you misdrill it. If your new, just do it right the first time and get a D5. I have one and its almost silent once you get all the air out of your system. its fantastic. great head (*snicker*, pressure rather), great flow, great pump.

Oh man...you won't get me anywhere near a drill press without a clamp. I'm still scarred from the safety videos my high school shop classes invested in. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> It looked fake as can be, but the missing limb and the 6ft squirting of blood got the point across. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">
