I may condsider the X Flow radiator for up top but only if I can fine one that's similar length. These rads were already a pain in the ass to get installed.
Either way you look at it that's still around about 3/4 of a 44 gallon drum of water passing through in an hour, so if the radiators are doing their job you would expect reasonable results wouldn't you?

Also make sure none of your blocks are clogged.
This is a good point.

OP,

The Optimus block will catch everything in your system (and obstruct flow) if its not completely cleaned.

As for draining from a radiator, I'm using a bitspower Leviathan - which happens to be a hardware labs rebrand - 360 in the bottom of my O11 XL. It has four ports on one end, and sitting on top of 25mm fans, it leaves me with enough space for a drain fitting... and it also happens to be the lowest point in the system.

Can you change the orientation of your bottom radiator, and get these runs behind your resevoir? Put your flow meter and t valve in line with the rear most run.

Not easily, not without doing the entire bottom half of my loop again.


The optimus block was brand new, didn't see any obstructions.

Do you have a better picture of the bottom of your res and all the connections?

Updated loop.



I'll try and work out changing the orientation of the eventual bottom rad replacement.

Sorry if this is too late. Your new loop looks cleaner. How did it affect your flow? I keep looking at mine trying to figure out what I can do to use two straight fittings into the cpu block and rotate the fittings vertically....

Here's what's going on down there. The loop is setup like this:

Heatkiller Pump/Res > top rad > side rad > bulk head (to rear of case) > flow meter > extra pumps > bulk head > bottom radiator > GPU/PCH parallel > CPU

I've got a handful of odd fittings to make the connections. I've got correct sized fittings on the way to replace those.

I gained about 20 l/h. During gaming my temps are usually in the low to mid 50s but that's without an overclock (not counting ram to 3600) so I'm curious how my temps will be after. I still plan to change my bottom rad.
