    Prototype SLATE AIR & AQ, (15.4L and 19.9L) >>HUGE CHANGES<< modular cooling, Looking for Feedback!

    I went back to the answers about the EK reservoirs and pumps and realized I may have not been clear enough. The FLT reservoir I thought would be mounted on the side of a radiator with this bracket. That should be thinner (with a DDC) than the dedicated space for the pump and may even help with...

    @TaylorChiller, I would like to ask you about furter estimations for release date and pricing. Also, how bad (or not) shipping will be to Europe?

    Prototype SLATE AIR & AQ, (15.4L and 19.9L) >>HUGE CHANGES<< modular cooling, Looking for Feedback!

    Thanks for measuring and the detailed answers! So the dual superslim rad with a mDTX is an option, tight but an option. Well, that sounds excelent as those XSPC rads, according to reviews, actually outperform in low speed some of the best 30mm rads (EK, Alphacool...) and even get on par with HWL...

    If I remember correctly, it is possible to change the power button by a non-keycap. The IO panel being modular is excelent news, as it can be changed once USB 4.0 are avalible or even include options such as front audio connectors, USB type C or whatever suits you.

    Prototype SLATE AIR & AQ, (15.4L and 19.9L) >>HUGE CHANGES<< modular cooling, Looking for Feedback!

    I have been considering options for the build and I want to ask some questions about clearences, fitting and capacities. Let´s list the parts first: -The mobo will be a miniDTX, the Crosshair VIII Impact to be precise. That said, since the backplate will be facing down the build and considering...

    In my case, gaming aside, I do a lot of online work. That means lots and lots of hours in front of the screen so I need stability and silence. You can get both with a custom water loop and low rpm´s, but it is also good to get those fans and pump in rock and roll mode for some gaming too. That´s...

    Prototype SLATE AIR & AQ, (15.4L and 19.9L) >>HUGE CHANGES<< modular cooling, Looking for Feedback!

    To add to Retrias argumentation, the DTX has a couple things that other ITX boards do not: capacity to use a monoblock (bitspower makes it) and a better sound card (i´m one of those rare users who despises headphones and uses an avr instead). All that said, I am planning a new rig by the end of...

    I´m quite surprised that I helped you in any meaningful way, so... Thanks to you. 😄 It could be interesting to play with a dtx and super slim dual rads (XSPC 23mm) or slim rads (30mm) with the slim noctua fans (15mm if I remember correctly). The VXT reservoirs from EK (I know, they´re...

    The Chimera MachOne: For the pros. Small meets flexible.

    Room for super thick radiators (HWL GTR kind) got me to this case. If that becomes the match one or any other name, I´ll be definetly interested. And yes, the DTX option sounds outstanding.

    Stalled S700: Salvo Studios <23L ATX Steel Watercooled Unibody Chassis

    With the influx of new income these last months (yeah, talk about online work) i have realized I have been able to budget a it further and I think I´ll be able to wait a bit for a new rig to be built by the end of the year. So with that in mind and being this case the chosen (again, I can wait...

    I´ll light up a couple fireworks for you! Thanks and please, keep us updated. By the end of this year, a new computer will have a home. :)

    Stalled S700: Salvo Studios <23L ATX Steel Watercooled Unibody Chassis

    I want to congratulate grsychckn on the successful release of the S402 as it is a very fine project and a great case. Good job sir, really good job on functionality, fit and finish. On a greedier side, I hope the release runs smooth and satisfactory for all parts because that means the S700...

    EKWB VTX pumps

    I honestly hope EK decides to provide an option of the VTX with the flat reservoirs.

    I know you´re busy with the release of the S402 case (I´m very glad it´s coming along nicely!), so due to that release and the experience gained, will the S700 be coated too? It seems to give it a very nice finish.

    EKWB VTX pumps

    Thank you a ton, Fabio, for letting us know. Now, time to lobby EK to get the pump spare and for other reservoirs... :D
