Need a little advice - Swiftech h220

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got my heatkiller x 7970 waterblock installed. Pretty excited about how much lower the temps are. My issue now is just correcting a kink as well as the backplate for the heatkiller will be in next week. Here's a picture of my setup:

I am looking for any advice to make it better. I want to do something about that kink on the outlet of the heatkiller, should that go to the bottom of the 120mm radiator? Also, while it seems possible but very difficult, can I install the heatkiller backplate with the loop in tact?

Im pretty sure your going to have to remove the card from the loop to install the backplate because it uses the main mounting bolts for the block.

its kind of hard to see everything going on in the picture but im pretty sure a couple of 45 fittings could fix your problem, though a few more pictures from different angles would be helpful for the other people that wish to help.

some angle fittings would definitely help with the kinking issue

id say take a 90 along with some spacers so the 90 lines up with the port on the rad. that way its a straight shot from the card to the rad in regards to the tubing.
