How much can you bend the tubing on the H70? Its a pretty tight fit in my 902 and I want the logo on the block to be level.

They're pretty flexible, albiet a bit stiff. A gentle 90 degrees in obtainable if needed. I know that after I attached the two Ultra Kaze 3000's to mine, it was quite a chore maneuvering it into position in the front drive bays of my Storm Scout with it already attached to CPU and motherboard. Needless to say, it didn't break or leak. But I wouldn't push it much further than that.

It doesn't show the bend though. That was only when I was installing it with it already attached to the mobo -- makes it quite hard. As it sits now it's almost perfectly straight.

The slightly pivoting action of the barbs at the base of the H70 plate also help too.

I have the H50 and it's bent to 90 degrees just fine. Here's a few pics of my new install. I posted pics in the "OCN Water Cooling Club And Picture Gallery" but I guess forgot to show them here.

Yes, install the block first. It's almost a two person job. It would be easier to have someone hold the rad for you. Make sure to follow the instructions and screw the screws down on the block in intervals. Don't tighten one down all the way at first, give them a couple turns each until they're all secure. Be patient with it.

I find it easier to do the block first, that way you're free to move around to get it seated properly -- and that's important! And a helping hand certainly doesn't hurt. You don't want that heavy rad and fans to come crashing down into your mobo
