Need some help selecting the correct angled fittings from someone with some experience.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, building my first water loop and I have selected evertying that I am going to use except for what angle fittings I will be using. I have an idea for how it is going to look when I am done but I would like to get some opinions from some users with some experience so I can be sure that the fittings I have are going to work well.

Here is a badly drawn picture of what I am going to be working with. The res is a Photon 170.




Judging from the image I think that I am going to need:

2x 90 degrees for the top right res connectors
2x 45 for the cpu block
1x standard fitting for the top fitting and 1x 45 or 90 for the bottom fitting for the gpu
2x 45 for the res
2x standard for the 280 rad on the bottom, especially considering it will have push/pull


Does anyone else have any input?

Almost forgot, loop order is going to be res>280 rad>gpu>cpu>420 rad> res
or it is going to be res>280>gpu>420>cpu>res
Just depends how much tubing I want to show.

Hope this helps.

It helps a little bit but your rig is quite a bit more crowded than mine will be. I assume that because of that I will need quite a bit less angled fittings then you.

Although I am also trying to decide whether or not I want thicker or thinner tubing. Judging from your pic I might want to get thinner tubes for a cleaner look since I will have a lot less going on inside the case. Still deciding! smile.gif
