Definitely a problem of flow, the first tube starting at the pump, I can really feel the flow, when I press the tube with my finger, the second tube, the outlet one on the CPU I can feel nothing, no flow, how is that possible ? I'm not inverted I triple checked on the waterblock, problem with the waterblock ? Actually, the only one tube where I can feel the flow is the first one (the output of the pump) I should feel it all over the tubes right ?

take the CPU water block apart it may be clogged up with stuff. I don't know what stuff, but it sounds like it is clogged up.

Yeah, that is what I'm doing right now, but it's black so I cannot see if it's clogged, so I blew up with my mouth to see if the air was passing, and its sound normal, I mean the air is passing, not a huge amount, but I tried with an old waterblock which is working good and it's seems to have the same behavior when I blew some air, I'll try to rebuilt the computer now after draining everything

first thing I'd do is remove whatever that fitting is directly off of your pump, replace it with one of those snake 90s you have on your top radiator.

90s directly off of pumps can drastically inhibit total flow potential. specially a hard 90 like that. I've found a couple inches, and or a snake 90 helps this quite a bit.

example - removing the 90 directly from my MCP35x2 added ~50lph.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

You talking about the fitting on the right ? the Inlet ? It's weird, cause before all that, everything was working good, well I just take opened my waterblock, and yeah there was some dirt in it, which is really weird, since it's kind of new, and I used anti-corrosion and biocide, so... I'll clean up, do you think I need to do the same with the graphic card ? Just to make sure ?

Hi,
Yeah too many 90 degree fittings.
Inlet/ outlet/ cpu block/ rad/ no telling what's on the front rad ? more 90's I'd guess.

Add a T valve off the bottom front rad not off the pump.

you have 90s off your pump on inlet and outlet bro lol.

well, technically ones a T right? still, a hard 90.

bet spacing that out with snakes instead of those hard 90s will increase flow. It's the first tubing change i'd make.

Hi,
Take the T block off the outlet of the pump
Put the shut off valve where it was connect to the pump. although shut off should be at the lowest possible point otherwise system won't drain completely

Now put one end on the T valve into the pumps outlet add the 45 angle to the other end so you have a straight line outlet 45 degree up to your cpu block

Personally I'd take all the 90s off put straight barbs or 45s

Hum no, it's a 90 on the right, but on the left (outlet) it's a 45.

About the T on the pump, like I said, it was working perfectly fine before all this, actually it was the exact same configuration and I had really low temperature, since I added the flowmeter it all went crazy and weird. But yeah, I can try this but I don't understand why it was running like a charm with all the 90 and the T on the pump.
