    Darth, In my setup here, i have 2 zipties on every joint between tubing and barb and no leaks, so i'd say if he tightend them enough, they'd be fine :)

    amd(*coff*intel*coff*)_man2003, the WW is an impingment block, meaning that you get best performance with the pump pushing the water straight to the channels in the middle of the block, then letting the water out of the two side barbs.

    Also, another thing, make sure you have the same length of tubing on each barb going to the Y joiner, otherwise, the one with less tubing(and thus less friction) will have a higher flowrate than the other and this may hinder the blocks cooling

    I found this guide helpful when I was reading up on what to do:

    although its for closed loop setups, most of it will still be relavant for res setups

    Just whipped this up, any opinions on the order and location of things?

    Also, the flow is Pump > CPU > Rad > Res

    The middle tube on the CPU is water coming in, the two outside are the water leaving

    from what i can see, your gonna have a few issues.

    1. The tubing from the rad res and pump won't be flexible enough to be able to do that sort of a bend.
    2. Your res won't work unless you fill it right up. Even if you do, any existing air will continuously cycle in the loop

    Otherwise, all looks ok

    I'll probably spread it out more on the bottom then

    Hmmmmm, I'm still waiting on my equiment, not even ordered yet, either I get a Cascade which I'm waiting on if I can get it. And if I can't get that I'll go with a Evolution-SP CPU WaterBlock.

    amd_man, may I suggest getting a bay res? That way your chances of getting air into the system are so much more minimized, especially if you keep it full. Anyways, just a thought, : peace2: Mista K6

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6
