580 Direct cu ii block tube placement?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys, ive got a ek dcp 2.2 pump waiting in the postal service building (some kid knocked over our locked mailbox setup in my development) a 120mm rad , 140mm rad both from black ice, and a ek dual spin single loop res coming in the mail by the 6th. I already have a rs360, raystorm block and the xspc 750 pump/res combo.

now my problem is that the barbs are facing away down which creates a bit of an issue with the tubing.

Any suggestions on how to place all the radiator's ect.

I have a haf 932 case if that helps

the rs360 is at the top of the case. (waiting for 6 yate loon fans, and some other stuff.)

I've got the same GPU block and yes it kind of sucks. I went with 90 degree rotary fittings plus 90 degree rotary adapters. Pricy, but you can run the tubing in any direction you want. You probably only *need* one set for the CPU -> GPU but having both can help depending on where you put everything.

my plan would be this: cpu-rs360-gpu-140mm-120mm-pump-res

Yeap have this and ran into your problem too. These were what I got recommended and they did the job nicely.
