ugotd8 Loop looks great, glad it's working well now. What fittings are those? EK-Torque? the angles are bitspower?

LeoYunta Here is the loop almost finished

You seem to be using push/pull and intake/exhaust interchangeably as if they are the same thing, which they are not. "Push" and 'pull' refer to whether the fan is mounted with the exhaust side of the fan mounted against the rad to push air through the rad ("push"), or if the intake side is mounted against the rad causing it to pull air through the rad ("pull"). "Exhaust" and "intake" refer to whether the aforementioned setup is taking air from the outside into the case ("intake"), or exhausting air from inside the case to the outside ("exhaust").

So, you can have:

Push Intake
Pull Intake
Push Exhaust
Pull Exhaust

It is intake vs exhaust that will be much larger the difference makers in performance.

ThrashZone Hi,
Time to add both rigs to your signature by using rig builder and upload the final images too

I did that yeah, unplugged the PWM first, the pump was running full speed and kinda noisy, but when I plugged the PWM cable, everything was silent and so cold. Maybe you were right with the GPU inlet / outlet, and the water was struggling inside. Now it's running like a charm ! I'll share some picture when it's gonna done if you want. I'm waiting on the sleeved cable.

Peace !

I think the gravity was also involved, and definitely the lenght of the tubing used in the first attempt.

I immediately knew that was better when the water got sucked out the first time, it was so quick, I also changed the air flow on the fans plugged into the front radiator from push to pull.

I actually dropped from 60-80 not even OC to 24 - 28 idle OC @5200mhz ahah
Whaaa
That sounds like the pump wasn't connected to the proper connector onto the motherboard and wasn't working properly.
Did you at all unplug and re-plug the pump connector during the change?
Unless you had one block which is very strictly following it's inlet and outlet design, and you connected it the opposite way.
Otherwise, it's fairly impossible imo

Interestingly, I think another recommendation to turn your top fans around as an intake might not be a bad idea either. It would be a lot of positive pressure in your case which will limit total air flow, but getting cool air to both radiators isn't a bad idea.
Never had such low temps to be honest, its basically the temperature of my room ! The only inlet / outlet that I haved mixed was the GPU, I inverted it ! Actually that was also that, I forgot to mention. Maybe this was game changer.

I tried the PWM @ 96% on the pump but did not change anything on the first attempt.

Here are the picture, sorry for the poor quality and the mess in the case, I'm still testing before sealing everything.
