Yeah, I'm aware of the inefficiency this approach has but I'm working with what I have atm. In any case additional fans can be added to either the side panel, rear exhaust in reverse or at the bottom near PSU for additional cooler air. Running the top rad in reverse is also an option with the mentioned fan option as exhaust.

But my question was more in regards to the fluid dynamics and pump's optimal workload considering A & B layouts. We have gravity as well as flow variation between blocks and rads so I'm just curious to know yet couldn't find any info touching on this.

Really no measurable difference of "optimal workload" for pump between A&B. Ignore gravity and even ignore most right-angle-turns for such a simple loop.

What is important in a more practical way: how are you going to drain it with the front radiator that way up? smile.gif

@Remontoire Quick glance it all looks fine. I personally prefer 10/16 tubing with monsoon fittings, for the chunkier look.

Alphacool "Pure Water" is a rip off. You can get a whole gallon of deionised water (Battery Top-Up Water) at Halfords for less. The important thing is not to use tap water for long-term use, but flushing is fine from the tap: you remove much more unwanted stuff from the flowing water than is likely to be deposited.

what do you think about a loop as this one: wtank - pump - CPU - rad1 - GPU - rad2 - wtank. Can be useful in terms of temp spikes control between a wblock and another? tks
