Kyze's Rig, First Watercooling

Hi,

so after i got my parts i spend my weekend building my wc in there.
Notice this is my first attempt at watercooling and i know theres lots to do better.

Still i wanna know what you think of this:

Alright so things i dont really like:
-position of res and pump (lying horizontal)
-the tube from gpu to rad touching the window
-general untidyness of using no angles
-monsoons not fitting my pump/pumptop

I might get some angles soon and maybe another res, the strange tube from the top-in-outlet of the ek-res is kinda weird and doenst make sense to me.

More thoughts?

Maybe rotate the pump 180". That way the Tubing won't cross. Also get a 90" fitting for the GPU block (the top thread), and the tubing from the CPU to the res can be cut shorter.
Other than that an amazing rig, I really like it

I agree with the above about rotating the pump and getting the 90 degree fittings. Other than that it looks really good for a first attempt

Looks nice for a first try! I agree with the guys. Would turning the rad around help and go pump>GPU>CPU>Rad>Res?

Looks very good indeed. One thing i noticed tho was that the RAM looks out of place, i think black or white RAM would fit in with the colour scheme a lot better. Apart from that and what the guys have said above me it looks good

Alright so i might turn the pump, but that would make hiding those colored cables a little hard and face the ugly black side towards the window (not too bad when the panel is on).

Ill definately get at least one 90° fitting for the gpu, maybe even 2.
Other than that, id like the res mounted somewhere else.. but dont really know where (preferably vertical!)

Thanks for your input guys

Yea.. now that you mention it, the RAM really doesnt fit in that good.. might pick up some Platinum when i finish my drivers license.

Can someone recommend 90° fittings that dont destroy the looks completely ?

Really like that. As you say, only thing id like to change is where the pump is, and some angled fittings. I reckon the res looks super cool lying flat like that, and i think the RAM looks really cool in red too; adds just enough colour.
