The Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel is an addon for any version of Spectre 3.0 including all limited editions and Spectre 3.0 Integra. Essentially it is a mirror image of the main distribution plate, but with some port location and design changes to allow for one loop for the CPU, and one for the GPU/s. It is a replacement for the side panel window and mounts directly onto the side panel window mounts, along with an extra stand-off which attaches to the rear IO panel. It is designed to be as open as possible so that you can still see the most important parts of the build. The distribution plate section only really covers the sides of the radiators and fans which is like traditional windowed case side panels. It has a removable side panel, so it is easy to gain access to the case for loop building. It has an integrated D5 pump top, Protium 2.0 Pump Cover and two ARGB LED strips which come pre-installed. There are 4 ports which are positioned for the GPU loop and top radiator, and a fill and drain port. The main distribution plate layout works perfect for the CPU loop connected to the front radiator. The Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel can be used in dual loops, single loop series or parallel, there are many options.
We have created two versions. The Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side panel is designed for the non-limited versions of Spectre 3.0 and is built from clear acrylic. The Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel Dark is designed for the limited edition versions of Spectre 3.0 and has a 3mm Satin Black acrylic cover which is removable, a clear acrylic top layer and a grey tinted main rear layer.
The idea for the Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel came from one of our customers. We were working on customisation with the customer for his Spectre 3.0 Integra Umbra Limited Edition. He was looking for ways to shroud the radiators and also add dual loops. After going through a few different ideas we ended up with a concept for a distribution plate which attaches to the side panel window mounts of Spectre 3.0 and adds a second loop. We like to engage with our customers as much as possible to improve our products but this also often leads to inspiration and new ideas.

Installs onto the Spectre 3.0 Side Panel Window Mounts like the stock side panel but with longer fasteners which are included. It also attaches to the top rear IO mounting hole using an included stand off and fasteners. The distribution plate layout is designed for a single loop, dual loops, series or parallel, there are many options. For dual loops the main distribution plate of the case can be used for the CPU loop with the front radiator, and the Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel can be used for the GPU loop with the top radiator. There are many ways to route the tube for a single loop, series or parallel.
Design & Engineering:
We have been building high end water-cooled systems for over 15 years. Our approach to product development begins with a need for our own builds and so the origin is always function. From there we start to build ideas around this function and the aesthetics and everything else follows. The original ideas for our products came from years of building highly customized, high end water-cooled systems and trying to reduce the exceptionally long build times and complexity. Our approach to development is hands on, we are using and testing our own products every day.
Manufacturing & Quality:
Almost all components of the Spectre 3.0 Dual Loop Side Panel Dark are CNC machined from a solid block of material. There is no hidden or back side, and this also goes for the components being installed. Due to this we selected the most high-end materials manufacturing process. The Distribution Plate is machined on a CNC router built from thick sheets of cast acrylic. It is hand assembled with silicone gaskets and stainless-steel fasteners, and pressure tested. The metal components are machined with Extreme Precision from solid blocks of 6061 aluminum on a CNC mill then sand blasted and anodized.
