I think it the hex hole looks much better than full open vent hole.

Agreed

Here are the components for my next build:

 

Radiators: Black Ice Nemesis 280GTS® XFLOW Ultra Stealth Cross-Flow Low Profile Radiator - Black Carbon

                 Black Ice Nemesis 360GTS® Ultra Stealth U-Flow Low Profile Radiator - Black Carbon

Pump: EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - Plexi (incl. pump) w/ carbon sleeving and black heatshrink

Reservoir: EK-RES X3 150 Lite Reservoir

Cpu: Waiting for the 7740K

CPU Block: Not decided yet

GPU: Waiting for the EVGA FTW3 1080Ti

GPU Block: Not decided yet

Fans: Be Quiet! SW3's (3x120mm and 2x140mm)

Tubing: PrimoFlex or Mayhems clear soft tubing

Coolant: Mayhems Pastel

 

1.) The 280mm rad goes to the front so the midplate needs to be cut for it to fit and since it is vertically mounted there is one port in the top and one port in the bottom.

2.) The 360mm rad goes up top. Which is a better orientation in my situation, ports on the left or ports on the right?

3.) I'm planning to connect the pump and reservoir with a male-to-male rotary fitting and mount it to the front rad by using mounting the reservoir to the rad and letting the pump just "hang".

 

My main question is do you have any suggestions on how to go about tube routing? I know it would be a hell lot easier if I switch the rad positions (280mm xflow rad up top and 360mm uflow rad in front) but sticking with the 360mm top orientation will yield a better looking setup.

 

NOTE:

 

1.) The only reason I'm sticking with a 280mm xflow is it is marginally better performing than its uflow counterpart and is way less restrictive.

2.) On the other hand, the 360mm uflow is marginally better performaing than its xflow counterpart, so there's that. Also for the reason that I'm comfortable in using one very restrictive rad (this 360mm rad) but I'm not sure if a D5's head pressure can handle using two (280mm uflow and 360mm uflow).

 

So I'm all ears regarding this setup. Nothing is final yet except for the fact that I will surely use a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX case.
