Something else to keep in mind, that EK CPU block has an inlet and outlet too. They have to be installed in the correct way or the fluid will not rush through the jet plate over the grooves. Its an easy fix though for running the tubes, just rotate it to accommodate your tubing. (wasn't sure if you were aware, but figured I would give you a heads up.)




If I were running your loop, I would run it one of the two following ways.

These obviously only work if you can rotate your 360 rad to have the ports in the drive bay so you can disregard these if that doesn't work for you.

Also, I can't quite tell, but from what I can gather your res has multiple ports on the bottom? if not, I would rotate it to allow both input and output from the bottom of the res. This is an acceptable configuration as long as the res is mostly full. The column of water will be more than sufficient to stop any vortex issues. It may take slightly longer to bleed air out. Take these with a grain of salt though. Its just one man's opinion.

If you're willing to cut into it ( it's pretty easy) you can have it on. Or you can have the rad further down but 1/4 of the 200mm fan would be hidden.

Look at my build log for my info. ( in my sig )

And Buttsy,
Damn Saaaan!
Great work! Love the loop! The colour is sexy!

The rad can't be turned around frown.gif

Damn it, this is harder than I thought frown.gif
The way it's mounted now the left port is in and the right is out. But it's the EK link bridge that has it wrong I think.

Arrggghh frown.gif

But if I turn my reservoir how would I fill my loop?

Damn. Ok. Well if that is static then thats just the way it is. 360 rad is set. Noted.

The CPU block isn't a huge issue like I said, you can just rotate it 180º either by remounting the block, or just the acrylic part. the middle most port is the input, the on closer to the edge is output.

As for your link bridge, weather you bought the parallel, or the serial (yours looks like parallel) you can use either as input or output. You could have the top as in, and run to the bottom, or have that side bottom as the in and run out the top to the CPU, dealer's choice. Provided you are not setting it up so that it bypasses the block (which I doubt you are based on the way it appears) then you can do either.

Your Res, what is the port configuration so that I know. 1 on either side? 2? 1 on one side and 3 on another? I just can't tell from the pictures. You are correct that you would want one as a fill port.

Okay so I rotate the cpu block 180°, too bad the EK logo will be upside down frown.giftongue.gif

It's the Bitspower 150 res, the way it's mounted now it has 3 ports on top and one on the bottom.

For the logos, you can purchase spare badges and lift the old one off and stick the new on on (I had to do that when I wet sanded my block) if that's a big deal. If its only one badge I can check if I have some spares and could letter mail one if you really need it. It wouldn't really affect performance so you could put it on at any old time.

Yeah if its possible, I would recommend flipping the res and putting the 3 ports on the bottom. You can use 2 as inlet and outlet (and you could even plug in one of those cool LED ports later in the third spot) and I would use the single hole on the top for fill. If bitspower says that its ok like that, I would recommend it. If the manual says you have to use the single port as outlet, I would keep it like you have an plan around it. smile.gif

Think of the logo situation as motivation for a future mod.

If its just a logo and doesn't have any kind of led or back lighting, then it will be very easy to paint over the old logo or cover it with a sticker.



Imagine a Punisher skull painted over the EK logo in a metallic paint for example.
