    Hi,
    Yep is kind of funny :)
    Just make sure all connections are fitted properly and leak test as recommended and all should be fine
    Still believe you should get at least a better pump :)
    Yup! Will do! I may get their upgraded pump in the future, but I'll see how it handles the CPU, GPU, and 2 rads for now.

    I'm excited for these upgrades! Already have a buyer for my old parts. And I his build will be all black, red, and aluminum. Still thinking of names for it when I get my new CPU and Mobo. If budget allows I might end up buying more ram as well.

    My other question is, if I can not find distilled water to fill it with, will regular filtered water work? In both cases I'll be putting some of that cryo fluid stuff in the loop.

    Hi,
    This is the main reason here why the pump is not very good plus it does not use a 12v molex for power !!! only the board fan port operates it

    D5 pumps use 12v molex and the board's pmw port only gets rpm and pwm feedback why I said the D5 vario is better still because it has a dial to adjust the flow
    Flow can help one lower fans for silent operation or another way to adjust mainly.
    The kits pump spec's
    EK-XRES 100 SPC-60 MX PWM (incl. pump) – EK Webshop
    Details

    EK-XRES 100 SPC-60 MX PWM (incl. pump) is a value-oriented water cooling pump reservoir combo. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer great hydraulic performance at the best price. The core of the unit is EK-SPC 60 water pump that uses only a 4-pin PWM FAN header for operation; no MOLEX connector is required! PWM control will allow you to set automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode! With the maximum pressure head at 3.2m (10,5 ft), maximum flow at 450 L/h and a very compact form, we recommend this pump reservoir combo for smaller builds, particularly if you are assembling your custom loop in a mini ITX case.

    Adjustable speed in five steps:
    Step 1: 1800 rpm
    Step 2: 2550 rpm
    Step 3: 3300 rpm
    Step 4: 4050 rpm
    Step 5: 4800 rpm Technical specifications:
    Motor: Electronically commuted spherical motor
    Rated voltage: 12V DC
    Power consumption: 23W
    Permitted voltage range: 8-24V DC
    Maximum pressure head: up to 3.9m
    Maximum flow: up to 1500L/h
    Maximum liquid temperature: 60°C
    Materials: Stainless steel, PPS-GF40, EPDM O-rings, Aluminium oxide, hard coal
    Power connector: 4-Pin Molex- and 3-Pin FAN connector
    Oops distilled is mostly boiled water :)

    Alright fair enough! Lol

    We'll see how the included pump reacts with the build. If it's not enough, I'll upgrade it. The issue is trying to find an all aluminum components.

    Do you run your punps at 100% all the time? Or like say 75%? With my h100i I run at about 80% on the pump

    Hi,
    The pumps manufacturing is all the same I would assume :/

    Pretty much full blast 47-4800rpm.

    Hi,
    I actually added a second pump lol these mono blocks complicate the flow and to get better temps I just added another one :)

    Hi,
    Yeah you might have good luck if you go pump/ gpu/ cpu/ rad1/ rad2/ back to pump.
    I didn't like it that way personally so I when pump/ rad1/ rad2/ cpu/ gpu/ back to pump.

    I was thinking pump, rad 1, CPU, rad 2, GPU.

    Idk, when I get the parts I'll see what looks cleaner and put it together. I got time! Lol

    Hi,
    gpu first will usually pipe better looking and actually cool the gpu better
    cpu second will also help it plus getting the first inline of the pumps pressure really does help
    The water temp will equalize so going to a rad before really isn't necessary.

    Ideally cpu from the pump first but it pipes for crap

    Hmmm ideally I want a rad after the CPU (240 rad) and after the GPU (360 rad) and I wanted pump to go directly to CPU first.

    So it would be pump, CPU, 240rad, GPU, 360 rad, pump. Or I could reverse that and have the water travel up, so pump, GPU, 240 rad, CPU, 360 rad, pump. I may end up routing one tube around the back of the Mobo to keep it out of sight since with either direction, there will be at least 1 long run of tube. If I'm able to, I may also mount the pump behind the Mobo as well.
