    Interesting result. Somehow those rough/scratched brass looks make me think of steam-punk builds

    updatie!

    The overall idea is as following: when we have watercooling in the case and a whole bunch of expensive stuff we don't want it to get wet, right? So, when we have draining or filling ports near the hardware we have quite a good chance to spill coolant on it, all this mess is to reduce the chance Also this is the way to make WC look neat and clean, a part of build's idea too.

    Let's start from the bottom, pump outlet goes behind the 5.25 bay to the splitter and here is the first thing, drain port.
    Sorry about the terrible tubing - I used old tygon cut outs for this first mockup


    As you may notice due to the construction of splitters drain outlet is slightly lower than inlet - exactly as it supposed to be for easy draining.


    Then tubing is going straight to the top to the fill port! Idea is the same as with drain port, but upside down


    But here is a small problem - tubing won't go easily under the stiffening bar due to the 5/8" outer diameter, also it bends under then back to the bottom splitter - that doesn't look cool


    Now it's fixed with the dremel snaky rotary passing tubing to the rad
    for now front piece is just hanging freely, but I'll fix it with stand-off later - don't have proper size right now


    View from the top


    Basically this is it for draining and filling, but I have one more interesting thing for ya, take a look, do you see anything behind the bar? just a tubing with angled barbs?


    But there is a flowmeter actually it was supposed to be a part of the tubing going behind the 5.25 bay, but when I'd heard about the issues with vertical placement of this flowmeter, I changed my mind


    And again view from the top


    I was going to post some more full case pictures, but it were too dark for decent pics, I'll show it later.

    Oh, and supposedly this week I'll take apart my open stand to finally start putting hardware into the case, but still there are some work to do such as painting, sleeving finishes and lots of tiny tweaks and details.

    Please tell me what you think about all this

    Love the way you hid those fittings behind the bar.

    Very very nice.

    That's some fine planning & plumbing. Dremel is my fav tool. Not sure why you want to hide the meter, but you did a fine job of it. Subbed.

    i think u may get a lot of noise with this pump installation
    i would suggest u to run simple loop before u proceed and see how ur pump isolation works

    How so? He hasn't mounted it directly to metal. The (UN)design brackets are pretty good at reducing vibrations.

    barfastic, y0gi, Quagmire, thx

    about pump vibration - there will be two insulations: at first pump is mounted with rubber grommets, not touching the bracket at all, secondly there will be foamy stuff between the bracket, case floor and screw nut underneath so again no direct metal to metal contact.
