    Knowing this industry, by the time the kit is available at gammods a better kit will be the same price but will no be arriving until the week after.

    I'm trying to decide between the 2, one is $140-150 cheaper than the other, but cant seem to find any proper reviews on the EK h3o, it does look the goods!

    Would it affect a loop much if I were to use right angle joints all over the shop instead of slight bends?

    My plan is this: (you'll have to use your imagination in regard to the Z-axis)

    [​IMG]

    It uses a Koolance RP-452X2 res and 2 PMP-450S pumps to give you an idea of where the tubing runs in respect to the z-axis. (loop 2 is on the pump closest to the open panel in the diagram)

    I don't really want to use angle fittings between the cpu and mobo blocks but everywhere else i want the tubing to go in a straight line.

    Cheers,

    Judging from that pic you are going push/pull....

    Push pull for that many fans is a fucking huge waste of money for a 2-5% increase in cooling power.

    nope, it takes about 30 hard 90 fittings to raise the cpu temp 1deg.
    http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/01/30/fittings-and-elbow-impacts/
    its more like 20% but still a huge waste of money, space and eardrums imho

    ignore copie..hes just a grumpy old man :rolleyes:
    you should probably start your own thread asking for advice on ur build..
    but why go for something so big and complicated for ur first loop?
