    I don't think you understand how little space there is in the case the only free space is below the GPU there is no space any where else, there are no res/pump combos under the height of 45mm, Seeing the pump i brought is 43mm is only just fits.


    This is the full layout of my build the space between components is pretty much spot on to the below picture.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet, but angled adapters are your friend.

    Indeed. Actually angled rotary ones so you can turn the bend to the direction you actually need it pointing. They are worth the premium.

    no dude i understand it very well. i understand it better then you.
    what i dont understand is why the hell you bought smallest possible case and you try to fit in it full water loop including fuckin mb block using standard parts only w/o any modding
    but most of all i dont understand why the hell you have ordered parts before you have reviewed all possible configurations with different parts and before you made proper planing of loop and now crying "you dont understand"
    and no you have plenty space between your graphic card and front panel of case to fit ddc, Phobya DC12 or eheim hpps and with little more adjustment even d5 and a lot more then just one pump/res combo.
    you can fit even this but you have to mod case or make custom brackets.
    get this top make custom bracket and place pump vertically in the hole for long vga access. together with pump they are 48mm tick and you have about 52mm between end of the card and front panel. use inlet and outlet at square side of the top. this way you will be able to use retarded res w/o moding and dont forget that pumps work on push so you should connect parts with biggest resistance to pump's out side.
    or if you going to use rotary angles like wrigleyvillain suggested dont forget to check their size and measure if they attached to pump will fit in hole for long vga access before you buy

    Yep thats the plan i already have a some but am waiting for all the parts before i can map out the fittings.


    If you have nothing helpful to say please don't bother replying as you don't have a clue about the space the M1 has and all your ideas are imposable, You say i dont understand and i'm the one with the case in front of me funny, A lot of people are doing full loops in this case it mite be challenging but i wanted a small case, I did map out my loop before buying the parts i was asking mainly if my tubing route would be OK.

    Any my answer to this
    No i don't have plenty of space between my graphic card and front panel of case, The whole reason i went with the K-DDC 3.2 PWM was because its fittings are horizontal there is just no space for pumps with vertical fittings they wouldn't even fit they would hit the video card.

    I'm not going to start cutting up a custom made case there's no way this would fit in the M1 its to thick and to long to use.

    Sure does look like i have 52mm there funny how 20mm looks like 52mm when your just taking a guess.

    Seeing the Dimensions without pump are 62x62x25mm and looking at the pump base is almost the same size as the top i would guess around 23mm, So the unit would be around 48mm and seeing i only have 45mm to work with your right should fit under the GPU just fine ill just drill a hole though my GTX for the tube.

    Once you have all the parts in front of you, and semi installed do some mock runs with the tubing. On my first loop I thought I had it figured out but when I got it all in front of me I found a better way.

    I really want an ncase m1 but it was just too expensive for me.

    That is a good loop. I have my own plans if I were to get an ncasem1. I don't think I will till someone makes a cheaper look alike.
