U can tell in my pic how its routed slightly different to yours. Been 2 hours and still no leak.. just concerned about the hose going from rad to CPU inlet now lol
In all likelyhood, if it hasn't leaked in 2 hours, it won't. I haven't had any issues with the XSPC compression fittings for my one rig, and as long as you cut the tubing square, push it as far up the fitting as possible, then securely hand tighten the compression down, you should be good to go.
Yeah, I see that you are actually running your loop what I would call "the proper" way ... with water coming from the radiator to the CPU then into the pump and from the pump to the radiator. That is how I normally do it on my other water cooled rigs, but I got lazy here and just wanted to make it look good. I thought about swapping the two connections on my Raystorm and doing it "right", and maybe I will when I do general maintenance in another month or two, but I just liked the way this looked. Also, since I'm running an RX360 radiator on just a CPU, I really didn't need to worry about the 1-2C temperature difference.
But you did it the correct way to be sure. Well done!
