Need help with Loop Placement!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ight guys I am running into some problems with my loop and need your help.
Sorry these are pictures I took with my cell phone.



So my original thought was to have the loop in the following order;
Pump > Bottom 240 Rad > CPU > Top 360 Rad (Other fitting on other side by Res) > Res > Pump


The left one is a fill port and the right one is to connect to the 360 rad.. I may swap the 45 to a 90 and move the res up.


This is what is would kinda look like if I moved it up (mounting it like this is another question...) I had to cut into the top cage to get the spacer to fit.. What a pain that was.. Almost wish I wasnt doing P/P.. Did you guys run into this or did I buy to big of a spacer fitting?


My friend said the pump needs to be below the res... boy does that make things hard.. I was thinking of mounting it to the front where the 2 fans are located.. What do you guys think? Not to many options.. Atleast that I see..


after taking this picture and noticing that it was very blurry I looked at the window panel.. And in the like you can see there it reflects funny.. Its not very clear and actually looks blurry in person as well.. Almost like there is a film on the acrylic.. Is this how every ones is or did I get a defective window?

While I disagree that there is a single "proper loop" for every circumstance, I think going GPU to CPU is the proper way to do this with that top rad.

RES > PUMP > 240 RAD > GPU > CPU > 360 RAD > RES

imho

put a picture in the switch 810 thread but here it is with a spoiler tag

Also swap the 90 and the 45 on that res and move it up.

As long as res is before pump,loop order makes no difference,having the res above the pump makes filling /priming the pump a lot easier.
