I imagine doing it the way you do it you are just going to plug a valve, and add tubing to it when it is time to drain each time, so same thing. thumb.gif

Exactly Ill have the valve and a plug on the end. I feel like it would look ugly if I add tubing all the way down to hide the valve. The valve looks good on its own hopefully doesn't look to bad just sitting there.

CPU block

Thanks Mandrix for the info on cleaning up the blocks it looks much better.


CPU block flow

How restrictive are the rotaries? I was thinking of doing something like this. Right comes from 480 rad to cpu. Left goes down to gpu block.
What do you guys think?

What color is your GPU block? I see you bought a silver valve, just trying to make sure you are matching it so it "hides" better. thumb.gif

As for the rotaries, I am not 100% sure on them, but as far as I know, a 90 is a 90 in terms of restriction and you don't want too many. That being said, I don't think you really need to run that many fittings off your CPU block to get it to look nice, and you shouldn't need any 90's there most likely either. Just my 2cents.gif.

I just noticed EK new all copper CPU block was looking for a all copper gpu block but couldn't find it. So looks like im going with copper crop circles. Not sure how will it will hide it but it shouldn't look to bad being out in the open like that. Im trying to decide tonight so I can place my order and get the stuff here.

What I just realized... I don't think the block I chose has a option to use the bottom and top. I think you have to use that link system that it comes with? It looks like it only comes out the side now. Anyone know about this?

See picture below for reference


I think they make double sided FC links

You have to use one of these to have Ports on the top and bottom now. CLICK ME.
I had to buy one for my Lightning block. Should come included if you ask me, but oh well.

Agreed. Just added to cart. Still making sure before I pass this order through tonight. Thanks for the link. What do you guys think about the fitting setup on the cpu block?

The fittings look good to me. I use those in my rig. 90's are 90's really....and in general the more you add the more restrictive the loop will be. But with one rad, a cpu, and a single card...you're not pushing the limits by any means.

Yeah I was going to add a second pump but I don't need it yet.

Well here is what I ended up ordering to finish up my loop. I don't think Im missing anything now but sleeving and some wiring supplies for all these fans.

It should look similar to this. I don't think it looks that bad What do you guys think? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Click to enlarge to see valve off of gpu.

Looks pretty good to my eyes! Coming together nicely thumb.gif
