Lovely. You are running out of subjects to cover.
Servos for animated parts like vents or doors?
Don't fear, plenty more bits and pieces left under the hood! I guess it will depend on how many areas we dip our toes into, there's an almost bottomless pit of possibilities out there
Quick one: do you find integrating the pump like this causes much additional noise/vibration? I've always gone out of my way to decouple the pump from everything else but i go for very quiet builds.

Quickly, Robin, to the Bat-cave!
Not with D5s at least, I've not lived with a DDC in a plate though so can't comment much on that, I tend to avoid those pumps for being whiny. I've done a few of the D5 mounted ones now and they all seem fine, I think much of it comes down to how you mount the plate to the case and the materials chosen. If you mounted one in a wood case, I wouldn't be surprised if it makes a real din if not properly isolated.
Mr Role, have you covered actually making the o-rings that go into these distro plates? Or anybody here point me in the right direction on how to do it? I have an exciting DDC pump being milled very soon and I'll be needing some o-rings!
You can actually make them quite simply from stock o-ring cord, all you need to do is superglue the ends together and smooth over any seams.
Cheers boss. I'm also going to look at getting pre-made and wrapping around the channels. I've at the forethought at least to get my channels within hundredths of a whole millimetre in length, so should be able to get something stock and fit.
