New to Forum and water cooling--looking for some quick advice!
The attached photo is an actual picture of my system as it stands now---I think the tubing is in the correct order in the picture, can someone please confirm?
Also, the inlet and outlet on the pump/res combo on the are going to have to be turned about 90 degrees, where they are facing the PCI brackets, because my 2080 Ti Strix card is pushing right up against the fittings as it sits right now (vertical mounted GPU) .that is why I am having the OUTLET routed to the "back" port on the radiator first, so it doesn't have to cross over the reservoir, is it fine to go to that port on the radiator first, instead of the port facing closest to the side window of the case? The rad is a EK Performance 360, if that matters?
I think it is, I just would like some re-assurance from folks who actually know what the hell they are doing.
Lastly, could someone advise me on how to setup a drain loop (I think that is the name, lol) in this system? I have watched numerous videos online, and they all have a T -splitter that is tied directly into I believe the outlet of a res and then the other end is capped off--I am lost on how in the world I can do a drain loop in my particular setup, is it even possible? Could you please show me what parts I would need?
