Hey guys.

I need some help/advice.

I want to change from a bay res to a tube res.
Mainly as I have a bit of space and I think it would look really nice.

You can see where I want to place it here.


You can see where the current bay res is, but I would like to change it to 2x tube res.

So few questions:
1) What is a good tube res, that would work (I need 2)?
2) I have 2x D5 Vario Pump's that I would like to use with the tube res, what do I need to attach them?
3) How would the 2 pumps work with the 2x tubes?
As in, the direction of the flow of water.
4) If the tubes are lying flat, and pumps attached, how would I fill the loop?

So was thinking of using this:

EK-D5 Dual TOP G1/4 CSQ - Acetal
With 2x EK-RES X3 250

Then running it like so:


Or for cleaner layout:


And having the loop run around the desk like so:


I probably wont be able to get under the PSU, as I will be Copper piping.
Maybe run it over the top of the PSU...

But can make it look nice smile.gif

What are your thoughts?

Are there better ways, ideas?
