Replaced that and all is good so far.

True. More so when it's 90 degree rotary fitting to female G1/4 socket. Too many of those have failed on me however a good idea they were at the time. They don't take to stress very well. No that was an old picture. I was going to post a picture of haggis as a joke so I will.


Ok but seriously here's what it looks like now. And with much less leaking. Especially after half the res spilled on my pants yesterday. Discouraging but replaced the leaky fitting that caused the lapse in concentration and filled it with a spare bottle of coolant. Turned out much better and got most if not all the major air bubbles out.

Its a better setup but your making your pump work harder than it should be with that setup. res on top? ugh I don't trust that at all.

But overall looking better.

I know I'm starting to regret ever starting this project. It is certainly a challenge. What i'm thinking is to get those four way adapter blocks. Should make some parts of the setup easier. If it doesn't perform as well as I hope I might just switch back to the Cosmos case. Or if that res doesn't work out I found the mini switech res. Could use that. Either way that is a project for later. It's working and not leaking. I'll take what victories I can.

But just out of curiosity could a ddc pump with an attached res work better in this setup? I also found the mounting bracket to attach it to a 120mm fan mount.

Never put an 90 on pump suction

looks pump>gpu>cpu>120Rad>i'm lost but then goes to 3x120 then rez?

Enaberif: d5 puts out 15ft/5meters of head pressure so not aproblem but yes how is mounted i agree

Mnemonicmanb can you take a closer pic of the res with pump working

Its the fact that after it comes out of the CPU it goes into the rad THEN into the reservoir. No matter the head pressure of that pump its having push a lot of water through the rad and reservoir to get out again.

I know the mounting isn't great. Working with what I have on hand. So what are you suggesting? Should I mount the pump with the inlet pointing up then? That'll take some work and maybe some acrylic but it can be done.

Hmm yes you are correct random stranger I do have a mounting bracket for the pump. It's supposed to be used with a ddc pump but with some additional holes drilled through it can be used with the D5 pump. Kinda looks like this.

The whole system was on. The side with the quick disconnect fitting was the intake on the pump. I'll probably rebuild the whole thing in a week or two. Got some ideas. Just need the money to buy fittings.
