My question about routing the tubing wasn't really about the flow but how would you do it since the space is a little tighter than I expected.
Can recommend you to use the supplied standoffs and place the pump with those four attached onto the decoupler.
About the fittings. There are rotary fittings but I was talking about adapters. Adapters will allow you to use existing fittings.
I use a couple of Bitspower 90 degree rotary fittings, but as you already have sufficient fittings I can advice you something like this:
45 degree adapter: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21230/ex-tub-1998/Bitspower_G14_Thread_45-Degree_Rotary_Adapter_-_Black_Sparkle_BP-BS45R.html?tl=g30c101s1305#blank
90 degree adapter: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/23514/ex-tub-3033/Bitspower_G14_Thread_90-Degree_Rotary_Adapter_-_Black_Sparkle_BP-BS90R.html?tl=g30c101s1306
I like to use Bitspower but feel free to use whatever you like. Most fittings/adapters are close to each other price-wise.
If you have some more spare cash it might be handy to also get some extenders like these: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/25071/ex-tub-3334/Bitspower_G_14_Thread_Fitting_Extender_-_Silver_BP-WTP-C40.html?tl=g30c101s1354#blank
These are sold in various lengths. So if you do decide to use some be sure to measure first.
Angled fittings are handy to make sharper turns. Especially on you top radiator. There I would personally use extenders plus angled adapters. But you have the case standing near you so you have better insight in the space. Measure I know
fittings and the likes can be a bit expensive but don't skimp. It can make the build so much easier. Less tubing is better (more water is more to cool) and looks better. You also risk tubing to kink when you make to sharp angles.
And remember, fittings will last you a long time if you do take care of them. You can never have to much
See the reply of Questors and my reply to that.
Will also sort out your pump placement problem. Just used the supplied double sided tape to secure the Shoggy sandwich and place the pump on there, can be secured with double sided tape if needed. Mostly a pump is secure by its weight already.
You say you have little space? Here's mine, don't mind the phone pictures I just made:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You see the angled fittings? Imagine when I have a straight fitting on the lower end of the gpu block. Would make the tubing much longer.
Now I think of it. Don't forget to make a drain line (been there, done that). See the piece of white tubing I have?
Very nice Questors.
Couldn't respond better myself.
Only thing I want to add. Don't bolt the pump down if you can.
So preferable either buy the Shoggy sandwich, or make something similar yourself, and just place the pump on there.Edited by Chopper1591 - 11/5/15 at 6:44am
