Been debating on where to put the new pump- I honestly have no idea.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...ase+%2D+Retail

Use that link to see photos of the case...I can always mount it outside, but inside would look a bit better...

Let me know your thoughts!

Do you have a picture of your current set up and your planned loop? Maybe in the bottom chamber near the PSU? Or just on the plate seperating the two chambers?

Are you going all internal? And which pump...If you are going to put your rad on the back or top I would just put it on the back-side bottom opposite the PSU cut out...You can all ways prime it and get it running before you bolt it down.....

I would put it in the upper drive bays.

It'd help if I put up a picture


Basically, the rad in the rear is mounted via a radbox to the 120mm fan mount. Tubing will enter/exit to it via two pre-drilled holes in the top, where I have drawn the tubes entering/exiting. There is also a 120mm res inside that is mounted, in the same 120mm fan mount, and has 2 pulls from it to the TEC waterblock...The pump is a D5.

Oh Yeah I'd mount to the back then...It would be out of the way there....Probably run a little cooler to...

I would stick the pump maybe in the bottom 5.25" drive bays.

I remember someone having problems with the tubing kinking when they did that with this or close to the same case.

You can also maybe fit it in his PSU bay. Also out of the way and wouldn't add heat to the system.

On the topic of the res: Here's how I think the loop will work:

Pump-Res-Dual pulls to CPU block-GPU-Out to Rad-In to case-Pump

Or, scenario #2:

Pump-GPU-Split to dual inlets on block-Dual out to res-Out to Rad-In to case-Pump

Oh, and the guy I'm getting it thru said it shipped yesterday, so it's on its way! I'm really gunning for it to get here tomorrow, but we all know that'll never happen

I'd still put the pump in the top drivebays then you will have a nice easy curve loop going on.

I'll do whatever works best- If I want to get creative, I might be able to make a drive tray. LL has these lips that hold the drives in place for their tool-less drive bays, so it may just have to sit right there.

Would it be an issue if the D5 gets mounted sideways, as in outlet facing up, outlet facing left/right?
