My System Specs

Default WC Loop/Parts plan Check?

First time building a WC and I wanna make sure I have no mistake before placing my order or if Im missing/doing something wrong

Please post if something wrong or missing or even a suggestion.

First of all Im planning to water cool the CPU +GPU with drain port.

Second: the loop plan




Lastly the parts list check

- XSPC RX360 D5 Kit
- 4ft 3/8"ID - 1/2"OD Tubing (is it enough?)
- 8x 3/8"ID - 1/2"OD Straight Compression Fitting
- 3x 3/8"ID - 1/2"OD Rotary 45 Deg. Angled Compression Fitting -Black
- 1x 3-way Splitter, T Block Crossconnect Adapter - Black BP-MBTMB (do I need special adapter before connecting it to a compression fitting?)
- 1x Fill/Drain Port Sealing Plug w/ 3/8"ID Tubing Barb - Matt Black


Thanks...

That Y fitting will restrict the flow big time as drawn. Use a 90 degree T like this: 3-way Splitter, T Block Crossconnect Adapter - Black BP-MBTMB The fittings screw right into it.

And 4' of tubing is not enough. It's cheap, get 8-10'.

Not too sure what adapters you're referring to, but if you want to put just compression fittings on it then it's no problem.

And yes, you can put any manner of adapters on it as long as they're G1/4 threaded. IE. you want to put angled adapters.

sorry guys, another question Im concerned about the drain port.

Im gonna be using this Fill/Drain Port Sealing Plug w/ 3/8"ID Tubing Barb - Matt Black


do I need Tube Clamps when connecting the tube to that port? or just connect the tube by itself and lock/seal the other side with the cover?
