It's because the inlet is on the left side of the block. Rather than have it right side up and have the tubes and barbs crossing, it's easier to just turn the block.
Excuse my lack of watercooling knowledge, but why does it matter which way the coolant flows through the block?

It's because the water is forced through a jet plate. Hopefully these pictures can help explain.

Top top of the block. When right-side up, the left is the inlet and the right is the outlet. You can see that the inlet is closer to the middle than the outlet.



Inside the top cover, you can see the inlet in the middle and the outlet on the left:



The plate that the water is forced through. The top part that you see above seals it off so the water can only go through the plate.

Thanks- that makes more sense. I didn't realize that the blocks were asymmetrical.

And once again, Primochill tubing is off my list. In just over two weeks I had tubing collapse. That's pretty ******* ridiculous.

Ya, they're off my list too. My 3 year old LRT clear tubing is fine in my loop, the 2 new runs of clear I put in are now milky white in appearance 2 months later. They've changed their tubing obviously.

Is it the Advanced LRT tubing that you put in? The stuff released in October?

Looks as though there is a slight twist in the tubing to cause it to collapse like that. If that fitting wasnt a 45, looks like it would loosen itself with that twist. Maybe you are lucky the tubing collapsed rather than back out the fitting from block and leak. I try to have at least one rotary in each tubing run to prevent stressed twists.

I had thought that might be it, but (albeit hard to see in that picture) the completely straight run of tubing between CPU and GPU ended up with the same kind of twist despite being a couple inches long and damn near straight. Either way, those two runs were replaced with the last bit of Feser tubing I had and they're holding up perfectly.
