My System Specs


wow, that's the first time I saw a reservoir mounted upside down.

Most people have the inlet and outlet at the bottom, and use the top for a fill port. The way you have it, when water starts to evaporate and there is space at the top.. you will get a "waterfall" effect, which will introduce more air in the water, and lead to stuck air bubbles in your rad and possibly your CPU waterblock over time.

Your fans aren't even mounted on the radiator correctly, and you need to spend a lot more time cabling.

Here are some example setups for the ATCS840:
Going under water for the first time, part 2: moving to a new home
i7 ATCS 840 watercooled :D
Main Workstation Worklog - 980x + 480SC

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
