No, not really. I had to tilt the PC a bit to the back though as the fill port on the side of the reservoir was a bit too low.

Nice build! I used the same case in one of my own builds a while back - just wondering: what temps do you get? +1

Aquilian's Completed Build: M. Mk IV - Meshify C Mini, Custom Loop

Aquilian submitter 2 Builds 0 points 5 months ago

Thanks! You certainly got a point there. Ease of access was not a priority when I built this rig. I was aware that for certain components disassembly would be quite an effort and take some time. Since I can use my laptop for work, this should not be a problem, I hope ;)

:) There is not, unfortunately. The pump occupies the space where an additional fan otherwise may be placed (see pic 36). The cables from the PSU are there too though (see pic 35), a fan may not be optimal in this place anyway.

dixonerfais's Completed Build: Patience.

Aquilian 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Now that is an impressive build. Feature well deserved! +1

Solid choice regarding the components, seems you've got a soft spot for ASUS, which I can totaly relate to. And I particularly like the neon-ish theme. You definitly should stick to clear fluids imho.

Congrats from a fellow custom hardline loop first-timer! ;)

Thanks!

Not really, actually. The fill port is a bit lower than the top end of the reservoir though, I had to tilt the pc a bit to the back because of this in order to decently fill the reservoir. Also, because of the orientation of the pump and the orientation of the fill port, I was not able fill the reservoir in an upright position, meaning that I had to repeat filling and turning on the pump a bit more than usual :)

Congratulations on the feature, well deserved! I particularly like the black nylon sleeves on the soft tubing in combination with the rugged look of the bitspower fittings. +1

btw: Ambient of 16-17 degrees? Do you live in a fridge? ;D

Amazing work, congrats on the feature! Well deserved. +1

I had a similar experience with the clearance of the components in my own build. What a feeling when it all comes together ;)

Finally someone gets it! I was always confused about that horrific chunk of metal and glass, which was wrapped in styrofoam impact protection inside the case. +1!

llamas_sergio's Completed Build: Dark Base Pro 900 Personal Gaming and Studio Rig

btw: which parts are still original? From the pre-built unit I mean...

Aquilian submitter 2 Builds 0 points 9 months ago

Thanks a lot! I actually never even considered to use soft tubing :D

dscustoms's Completed Build: Custom Scratch Built PC "Venom Slate"

Aquilian 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Inspiring work, well done! +1

May I ask about the lower tube though: It seems not to be aligned, which looks a bit out of place given that the rest of the tubes looks perfect in this regard. Is there any particular reason you left it the way it is?

llamas_sergio's Completed Build: Dark Base Pro 900 Personal Gaming and Studio Rig

Aquilian 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Well done! Great step up from a pre-built unit :)

Many thanks! Just checked out your latest build btw... I never thought about Noctua's signature colours this way - you definitely nailed it! :D

marianoazevedo's Completed Build: Yoda's Temple

Aquilian 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

You owned Noctua's signature colours for sure! I wonder, did you even connect the three fans?

Not yet, sorry - I plan on overclocking both some day though :)

Aquilian's Completed Build: M. Mk IV - Meshify C Mini, Custom Loop

Aquilian submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks for your compliment, I'm glad to hear you like it!

Your comment is spot on: the way everything fits is actually one of the things I like most about it. I did quite lot of research before ordering the parts, and I was still nervous when I started building. ;) And I totally agree as regards the LEDs. I also already thought about trying to order a regular version of the tempered glass panel and switching the LEDs off or to just plain white...

Thank you!!

Good question regarding the reservoir: In fact it was a conscious decision - but only after realising that the combo unit I orderd in the first place did not fit the way I planned (there wasn't enough clearance directly under the GPU).

The pump I installed in the end was actually part of that original combo unit, which I took apart. I then orderd a separate D5 top, a larger reservoir than the one in the combo unit and an additional top for the reservoir with more fill ports than the original top.

I really like how it turned out, and in particular I think the usage of the space available is more "balanced" and aesthetically pleasing with the separate components. Even more so because the reason why at first I tried to use a combo unit feels rather silly in hindsight: I just tried to shy away from the additonal tubing work because it was my frist water cooling build :D

Aquilian's Completed Build: M. Mk IV - Meshify C Mini, Custom Loop

Aquilian submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Indeed, stuff from my dreams too: I had nightmares before it turned out that everything fits just fine ;D - Thanks!
