I will do that as well, that way I only have one tube running there instead of 2 thumb.gif
Thanks all for your help! heart.gif

Will do! Thanks smile.gif I will report back with images after I fix it all.

Try getting everything put together then realising you're missing a fitting, then having to wait for the shipment without a pc tongue.gif

Ordering them with your phone ftw

Looking at your pictures it appears you have it done right biggrin.gif I have the drain as an outlet, you have matched pairs which is correct! Also your front rad is paired but upside down - which doesn't matter, thats our only difference!

From what these guys told me (whom have more knowledge) The outlet on my top rad is the drain, which looking at pictures confirms it is at least 10mm lower than the rest of the ports, which means half the rad is not getting any liquid, hence my sloshing. My front rad I'm using a port on the top and a port on the front, which is not allowing the complete flow without restriction. (Former is incorrect)

I will fix it today and post pics in this thread on how it "should be." Luckily I have all the fittings and tons of tubing smile.gif

Its completely fine to use one front port and one top port on Alphacool rads. changing so that inlet and outlet are both on the front or top won't make any difference. Its just two holes to the same place.

The top rad should have both inlet and outlet at the same end though. Maybe move the outlet to above the CPU but send the tubing behind the motherboard to the front rad. Without flow though half the rad tubes it will be difficult to remove air pockets.

Okay thank you man!
I Plan on flipping the top rad so the ports are towards the front of the case and running the cpu out to the top rad (At the front) Then the top rad outlet to the front rad inlet.

I will probably screw around with order until I find what I like smile.gif

He was using the ports on the same side. If they are on opposite sides, then yes- front/top/back are irrelevant.
