What if you went to your CPU from the video cards? Then go from the CPU to the NB?

Sorry I did not explain it much... but that will be two loops one for the cpu, and another one for the nb and the gpu...

Because of that should i consider adding it to the cpu loop? maybe not huh?

thanks for you post anyways...

That looks like it will be fine. Otherwise, throw an extra clamp on there and the kink will go away. I did that here, on the outlet from the res. And personally, I would have the nb on the cpu loop not the gpu loop. just my 2 cents.

As long as it isn't about to kink and block the liquid flow, it's fine.
If you want to improve it, you can use one of those bendy articulated tubing (not sure what they're actually called).

he means anti-kink coils. They are a rigid plastic you put around your tubes and they prevent kinks, I don't like the look of them though.

I'm sure it's fine as is. If it were bent more then I'd go for one of them anti-kink thingies.
post #10 of 11
i would suggest using the anti-kink coils instead of a cheap way, such as a zip tie.
Not only do they make your loop look sweet, are fairly cheap, but they have a clear version available so they wont be as noticeable (if you didnt care for the look much, but i still think the colored versions are amazing and you can get UV reactive ones).
