got a problem installing my wc, help please.

problem:
- The case I have is HAF X, it has 6 slots.
- I have a res+pump combo that has to take up 2 slots.
- As you can see in the picture, the top 2 slots are taken by the rad and will be impossible to fit the res+pump combo without kinking the tube. Same goes for the third slot.
- I can take the 4th and 5th slots, but I still have a DVD drive and a card reader to installer, wouldnt be possible to install them above the rad without kinking the tube.
- The second fan is blocked by the RAM stick, I think I can fix this by moving the fan up slightly and just glue/tie it together to the other 2 fans. Or get a thinner fan?
- Another possible solution would be turn the rad around.

and use this loop order?

No specific in or out on the radiator. I don't have the same radiator but mine is turned around like in your drawing.

Inlet/outlet on rads don't matter, and xspc says it doesn't matter as well.

Order looks fine. As for the res, use a smaller/compact res/pump top. You don't have to use a bay res/top setup. Also, the term slots refers to the expansion slots, ie. pci slots and bay refers to the expansion bays, ie. where you hook up cdroms etc.

As for the fans, you don't absolutely need push pull on the RX360, and pull is ideal since its a low speed setup. And on that note, you don't need to match fans on push/pull on that particular rad. Use a thin fan to pull, and thicker fan to push if you are set on a push/pull. That will help you get some clearance back.

Flip the top rad 180 degrees so the barbs are in the back. You might run into the 8 pin cable like I did but with care I did get it to fit. I am also using an XSPC360 and the ram stick does clear with a few mm, you can look at my build for reference, I'm not sure why yours doesn't clear as well, if you are using 25mm fans. There is no in/out for RX360.

Drill it out. The screw is just connected to the pump top which is unused if you use a res/pump top anyways.
