Tube routing priority?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
is there a specific tube routing priority that gives a noticeable improvement in keeping things cooler?

I know to route the coolant from the reservoir to the inlet of the pump, but after that I am looking for the best way to route the tubing to give me the best optimal cooling.

the system:

pump
reservoir
240 radiator
CPU water block
GPU water block

Any Ideas? Thanks!

My experience says no. As long as the pump gets fed from the res your good. Then just go by what looks better.

Whatever looks best but make sure the water is flowing the correct way through the blocks.
