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.

Corsair 600T SE Watercooled; internal triple radiator mod

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.
