dwood or TripT bracket!
I've been contemplating about this for a while. I think maintaining a custom built loop is too much work for me especially when i make very little use of desktop these days.

I don't have intent to overclock and even if I did overclock it would be very modest.

This would be my set up.

Fractal Design Core 1000 mATX case.
2x Antec Kuhler 920 (One dedicated for CPU and the other for Video card.) with 2x Noctua P12 on video card and 1x Noctua P12 on CPU.
1x Noctua P12 infront of the chassis.

The Kuhler would be mounted on side panel.

- Would the integrated pump be sufficient enough to move liquid fast enough?
- Are 2 fans in push - pull set up good enough to cool down the video card?

Anyone with an existing dwood (TripT) bracket setup advise on this?

rly? nobody here has experience with it? i recall it was mentioned by another forum member and that's how i even found out about dwood's bracket in the first place. *sadface*

No experience with them personally, but to answer your questions-

The pumps won't have any issues.

Two fans is fine.

Other thoughts:
Mounting one of those on a side panel is going to be a PITA, bordering feasibly impossible. If you put your GPU in a bottom(ish) slot, you might be able to reach the front 120mm fan (Tell me if I'm wrong).

Good luck

Thanks for your input and additional thoughts.

I've thought for a while how I was going to put 2 rads in the system and I think side panel is best option but not utilizing the existing 120mm fan slot is the best way to go. We will have to see when the time comes to actually put everything together.

If I can't I've also thought about putting the video card rad against the front panel assuming space allows.

I'm really hoping that I don't have to make too much modification since I intend it to be a simple box more than anything else.
