Looks its bent already mate. Even if you try to straighten it out it will continue to bend there. Turn your rad 180°, to run some shorter runs to the (what looks like) your bay area res or/and pump, use some spare tube to run a new line for the cpu to rad. What size of tube are you running btw?


In my previous builds, even fully loaded and complex loops I had no kinks as long as the run was fluid. Use angled fittings for this to help direct the tube a bit better.









I finally got my two other rads. This case is still a tight fitting which ran into this little issue of clearance. Hopefully the new fittings ordered should clear this. My R4s and pump arrive in the next couple of days. I'm hoping to wrap up this weekend smile.gif

I might try to rerun it tommorrow but I'm getting 48C on both the CPU and GPU while gaming so it's flowing good.

I'm assuming the only problem is cosmetic correct?

You will get reduced flow with a twist/kink in the run,could cause back pressure which could lead to a fail of a fittings watertightness

You will be introducing a lot of resistance into the loop which will cause increased stress on the pump plus as Bnegative said could cause back pressure.

Ok I reran it got the twist out but there is still a little bend, put a zip tie on the bend to hold it all the way open.

Next payday I will buy some angled barbs to fix it.

Thanks for the heads up guys! I figured if I was getting good flow and temps it would be good.

I want to rerun my tubing with red and change a couple of my regular fittings for 90° and compression to make things a little nicer.

Haha yeah, I'm sad to say that I'm currently running a pair of old Dell 19" 4:3 LCDs... They work well though so I can't complain!

hogwash - good choice not to leave it. that extra stress that kink would put on your pump could very easily kill your pump fairly quickly even if there is still some flow. you always want to be sure you have your loop as free of restrictions as possible. thumb.gif
post #16259 of 105828
you guys are making mountains out of mole hills. i had a severely worse kink in my set up a while back that i ran for nearly a year without any problem.
post #16260 of 105828
But why even chance it when you can usually come up with a creative solution to fix the kink and not have an issue.
