    It might be a fair pump mate, just a bit of an unknown. The circuit board is definitely different to a true D5, from these photos. The ceramic bearing shaft is also a different shape and shorter than in the true D5.

    You'd get a second-hand D5 in the forums here around that price :thumbup:

    I got this 980ti second hand with no instructions and no markings on the block. I assume the bottom point is the line in?

    All working well.

    No leaks and seems to be cooling well.

    In bf5 CPU sits at 51deg and gpu at 43deg.

    980ti is a decent little bump against the r9 290 I had before. Can oc it to 1482mhz

    Looks tidy mate, lovely work. Clear tube/res offsets everything nicely :thumbup:

    you are smart that not doing 360 rad at side. There is a stupid bracket that used for front panel cable management blocking the radiator and I had to cut mine one to fit the Alphacool radiator. I have no idea how Lian Li claims it would fit 360 rad at default.

    yea I never wanted to do a side rad, I only got the case as I liked that particular reservoir, and wanted to do a vertical airflow model,

    Indeed I did :thumbup: If you want some colour, a few drops of food dye won't hurt and will give you what you need. I still think clear's a winner though, it's very understated. You've done a good job.
