Default I think I set my loop up wrong...

Hey everyone, I was just wondering if some of more experienced water coolers could tell me if my loops set up wrong or not.

I made a lovely picture for you to examine:



I tried to show you the way it's going but I will also spell it out as these things can sometimes be pretty hard to explain..

Starting at the: Radiator > Then the Pump > then the Reservoir > then the CPU block then back to the Radiator.

I just got the CPU block today and stupidly rushed into it.. and now I have all the liquid in there I really don't want to take it apart.. so...

How important is it to have the right In/Out pipe on the CPU block?
and How much will it improve cooling?

Thanks guys.

wrong . pump must draw water/fluid from res. not into you need to change that for sure the way you had it first time was right.

switch the order of pump and res. just put the res before the pump and your good to go.

Wow, this whole task would have been 100% easier if I could have just switched the direction of the flow.. lol wonder if there are PC wc pumps out there you can do that with..
