Hi Guys, new to the forum, always followed the corsair path for the quality and reliability, soon as i saw the Hydro X range released i knew it wouldt be long before i took the plunge ;): only issue is had was my case was the 280X.

 

I wanted to keep this case as it fits on the shelf in my very small room plus the fact i love it :) i decided to cram a hydro X install into it, so to anyone wondering, yes it all fits :biggrin:

 

this is my 1st time with hard tubing, i am awaiting more fittings as already i want to change this with more fittings rather than tube bends, due to the case being small, tighter bends are required.

That is a very clever mod to install the pump/rez. Care to share what you did to do that?

 

Hi Devbiker, No mods at all! with the XD5 having an adjustable height i just moved it up using the supplied bracket and did away with the front roof fan and put a 140mm fan in the rear roof. i could infact lower the pump if i cut the bottom section of bracket off and possibly squeeze another fan in but happy with it as is.
