My System Specs

Default Need suggestions on setting up my WC build

There are some pictures of what I'm doing with my 600T case in this thread.

This is my first WC build, and I can't decide where I'll be putting the pump and reservoir. I can't decide which side to have the fittings of the radiator on after mounting it. Left side or right side?

Oh decisions....

Personally I would put the radiator connections over the 5.25 bays and the pump and res in the 5.25 bay.

Would hide some tubing and parts if your going for a clean look.

Good. Because it's mounted that way right now, and I didn't want to remount it. It's not easy with the super tight fit against my motherboard.

Do you think I can get it bunched up in there with only straight fittings?

its possible, what parts are you using?

If you can get your hands on a male-male extender and connect the pump and res together that works nicely.
