    Custom valve system:

    When not using it:

    When I need it:

    Pump Station:

    In the past I used to mount the Dual D5 Top in horizontal with the EK reservoir combo but the space that this occupies was extremly large so I decided to mount the pumps with silentblock and screw them directly to the case. This system makes the pump quieter and occupies much less space:

    But one of the problem when mounting the EK dual top with the pumps in vertical is that there aren't space for the reservoir combo from EK so I decided to use a fillport:

    The project is finished but there are some plates that were designed but never were done:

    In the far future it's possible that I make it real but by now it's just a render.

    Hi,

    This backplate looks absolutly amazing.
    The bottom part is made from plexi, not metal, right?
    So does it increse the temparature of the card?

    Wow - thanks for reviving the thread, it looks great!

    Acrylic tubing looks cool but the other tubing was good too - pretty thick and you managed to get tight turns without kinking - what type of tubing was it? I've got Promochill Advanced for my current build, apparently that doesn't kink too easily...

    Was the acrylic easy to do?

    My old tubing was primochill primoflex (the previous to the Advanced version), so the advanced should be better :D

    The acrylic tubing is easy to bend with a heatgun and the result of all is astonishing :D

    Some fantastic work there and a real beaut of a system. I've got a lot of love for 480's having owned a couple.
