Default Water cooling log/questions

Quick question on the loop..

Rad > Pump (outlet).. Pump (Inlet) to Res (outlet).. Res (inlet) to cpu (inlet).. cpu(outlet) to rad..

is this correct.. just confused by the cpu inlet and outlet part..

Thanks..

Thanks for that.. though usually we can use any port on the rad right.. as in for outlet pump to intake rad and then outlet rad again..

Yes; any port of the rad can be the intake.

Perfect.. Not a log, but some teasers, pretty happy with the routing..



For the res mounting, I had to lift it a little bit, I used a long 6/32 screw, a washer. 3 nuts.. and at the bottom a teeth nut to tighten it.. once it was raised, so easy to route a tube to the cpu block.. also used a feser 45 degree fitting (thanks to Dazmode) to connect the tube to the rad..

Hopefully, leak testing today, if not.. weekend..

Nice routing: smooth, no excessive bending with short runs. Good job with handling reservoir mount. Thumbs up for putting it nicely.

When leak testing with everything in the case do you unplug the motherboard 24+8pin? (& jump psu)

I only disconnect wall's power outlet and run pump from external source of power.
