Difficult time with loop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
To start off with everything, i had a 90 degree Plastic fitting that i got for 99c that i thought could work, i screw it in and it breaks Inside the reservoir -.-

then i got the inlet and outlet mixed up on the reservoir, so then once i got most of the stuff flowing through, my gpu was getting cooled first and going in the Opposite direction that i wanted.

the loop order was suppose to be
Pump > 360 rad > cpu > 120 rad > gpu > res

instead it was now going backwards......

tl/dr - should i just try to fix it and buy another 90 degree fitting and a little extra tubing OR just make my life 10 easier and get this

(with the pump. I dont have faith in my current pump, its a ocz hydro pulse 800)

Any input is greatly accepted and appreciated!

I actually just bought this reservoir and planning on installing it over the holidays, I really like the quality of it. It does save you some tubing as the mcp 655 mounts directly inside the reservoir, plus no guessing as where to mount it since it simply goes into your 5.25 bays. So in short, yes it does save a few headaches for the price of course

Just for the heads up the fill port on is not a G 1/4 (learned it when I received it) so if you are planning on putting a barb there for a fill line you will need a thread adapter like this

The in/out are regular G 1/4 ports.

I bought that unit for my own MCP-655 and I have no complaints. It looks gorgeous in an 800D with the included blue LED.

I guess it's odd that the fill port is not G 1/4 but I can see why they did that; it's easier to stick a hose in there and fill via funnel impromptu rather than have a piece of tubing threaded or permanently attached for the same purpose.
