Best Way To Connect The Tubes?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Decided to treat my Rampage II! Before I install the CPU block, what would be the best way to connect all these together? I mean from which block should I go to the other?



This is exactly how my rad and motherboard will look in my case, I'm not able to mount the rad the other way because then I cant access the fill port from my HAF X.



Any help will be appreciated!

There is no best way really, whichever is easiest, that said I would prob start at the CPU, just to get that extra 0.5oC lower coolant temp.


I think you would greatly benefit from some 90 degree connectors though.

There is not a "best" order, but you could put the CPU first.
As Crabid said, You would benefit from having 90° fittings.

Thanks for the help guys. I'm almost done!

Some photos...

As you can see I went with the Primochill UV Red Tubing and I'm using the Primochill PC Ice as my coolant, also added the Corsair AirFlow Pro to my system.



Replaced the all the HAF X 200MM stock fans with the the red led versions.


And lastly I managed to fit a 140MM fan on top of my case for better exhausting as both of my top fans are used as intakes for my rad.

Wow, you really should've bought some 45-degree fittings. You can't even see the motherboard anymore.

But, I guess as long as you like it then it's fine.

Holy crap. Looks like you tied a knot!

Might want to consider some fittings just for the sake of water flow.
