Alright, I finally
got my case cut and ready to paint. I've just got the fittings, tubing and GPU blocks left. I took a picture of the parts in the case and edited one to show where I think the loop needs to go. Hoping for some feedback and recommendations.
Unedited picture just in case (Click to show)
So, I'm thinking 90 degree compression fitting from the bottom of the reservoir into the pump (pump doesn't need fittings right?). From the pump we go out into another 90 degree compression fitting, the tube will run next to the radiator and go up between the ports (or better yet, link into the bottom). From the radiator we go into the CPU block using maybe 45 degree compression fittings on both. 45 degree compression fitting out and back into the next radiator using a straight compression fitting. Out from the 120mm rad with a straight into the GPU bridge. 90 degree out of the GPU bridge back into the reservoir using a straight.
Now, question time.
Instead of pumping the water into the top of the radiator it would be OK to go in the bottom port on the opposite side of the outlet to CPU right?
Would quick disconnects be good to install? It would be kinda cool if I could pull the GPUs out without draining the loop.
Fill port should go where? I have multiple ports on the back of the reservoir, should it go in there or would the top radiator be a better place to fill the loop at? As for the drain I'm thinking drain out the bottom of the radiator, I can cut a hole in the bottom for it go through. Would a quick disconnect be good for that? If not what would be good?
Can anbody recommend some good fittings? I'd prefer them to be nickel compression fittings to match the blocks. Also what size tubing is good? I was thinking 1/2" OD / 3/8" ID, is that too big?
Thanks in advance.
