To ensure that I can mount my EKWB D5 PWM pump together with the Aqualis XT 880 ml mounted inside the custom PSU cover / secondary floor of my case I decided to create a combined mounting bracket. Feels like modding started for real. I started with a standard vertical mounting EKWB pump bracket and combined that with the Aqualis reservoir bracket.

I cut 2 pieces of aluminum in the right length, then drilled holes in both the aluminium pieces and the EKWB pump bracket. I need to do this, to move the pump 14mm lower to ensure it fits below my secondary floor / PSU cover.

After drilling all the holes, I cut two horizontal pieces of aluminum for structural integrity and glued them together with superglue. Gluing is modding too 🙂

Needed a little more distance between the pump and the Aqualis XT 880 ml Reservoir to have enough room for fittings. Cut a plate of 5mm acrylic in the right size and added to the bracket.

 

 

Testing all mounting holes, size of the bracket and that it will fit both the EKWB D5 Plexi pump and the Aqualis XT 880 reservoir

Even if the bracket isn’t visible in the build due to its placement under the custom PSU cover, I can’t leave it unpainted. Just doesn’t feel right.

All the finished part with a new coat of satin black. Looks really good if i can say so my self.

Putting it all together with a new set of screws.

All ready and with pump mounted. Next part will be about finishing the top piece of my custom PSU cover / secondary floor and drilling holes for the pump and reservoir.
