Default 90 degree fitting

Hey everyone, I've got a quick question. Will it be harmful to my flow rate to put a 90 degree barb connected to the outlet of my mcp355 with xspc top? I would like to have a 90 degree bend right into my radiator.

thank you so much guys. One other quick question: Can i orientate my mcp355 top anyway i want? I.e. Turn the top 180* backwards, so the outlet is facing the same way as the cables?

Yeah, the top can aim any direction. Just make sure that the top+pump isn't upside down, that's all.

Rule of thumb for pumps. Make sure the intake of the pump isn't pointing downwards.

Yeah use 90 degree fittings conservatively. Use them only if you absolutely need them.

I think the only build that I ABSOLUTELY needed 90 degrees was the one with Typhoon III, with the radiator barbs 2in above the outlets.
