This is the eternal question, theoretically they affect flow, though it all, many people treat them as "demons" based on urban myths mostly: "they're cutting it down to 50%" or others. The only way to get it tested it's to use a flow meter, cause the flow is affected for a lot of things, not just the elbows, also the loop distance and curves (or kinks), the loop fluid (density and viscosity) as well as the position of water elements as blocks or radiators. Once said that, of course 90 degree elbows are gonna affect flow but the amount of it it's gonna change from one loop to another. There are math and physic formulas that can help you with that but the easiest one is to measure it by yourself in your specific system.

In my personal one, i can see how fast the liquid is moving (using Mayhem Aurora fluid) and as far as i can see, the shortness of my circuit, the fact that no tube is kinked and a powerful pump is giving me almost the same speeds on every part of the loop w/o noticeable flow restrictions.

Also you can find 90 degree rotary elbows which are carrying a 45º inside as some Bitspower fittings.

Yeah, i'm using them in two critic and very limited points of my circuit: the return from radiator to reservoir which will cause a curve between these elements and will disturb the res-pump tube and could move the position of my radiator, also the pump-block connection, which i decided to make it straight to allow more air to pass through the MB and the plate of the GFX. It was just to maximize the free space to maintain the circuit in case any emergency happens and also some fresh inners.

Had a time thinking about the hard drives position (now i'm running two) and its best spot for heat dissipation w/o compromising anything else. I also measured a lot of the internals to suit the original power button and led that i had along with a new Swiftech MCR-220XP and Micro-Res v2. Got some new 1/4" auto-fittings and 2x60mm fans that i placed under the rad to keep it higher than the deposit. To replace my old blue neons i got one Phobya LED Stripe (white color) and i paired it with a switch profiting one of the original holes of the case. To beautify the top part and hide the PSU as well as the CD and some cables i cutted the original G5 cpu covers and give it a lil bit of Mac Pro top-style.

Think of the flow like a wood pencil. The middle part and the outer part.

The center of the flow is theorically almost the same and the outside flow too when in a straight line.
When it comes to curves even the smallest, the outer flow change direction producing a chain reaction by making impact with the central flow.
The more the speed of the external flow the more swirls it may create when making impact with the tubes and fittings affecting at the same time even more the straight center flow.

Physics is so wide that it needs calculation to know if these swirls accentuate or decrease the flow speed.

Clear enough ?

Can't wait for next january/february to post pictures of my new computer project im planning for my cuirrent rig. It involves Switch 810 and carbon fiber.

These G.Skill sticks use a different IC than the Platinum sticks, and I think the C11 2666 Platinums have the same IC as these G.Skill ones do. Now play with 9-11-10-28 @ 1.5 V, 2133 MHz. You cannot find sticks with htose timings at 1.5 V..all the sticks with those timings use 1.65V. I'm really enjoying playing with these. I'm also compiling info for a memory OC guide. I have a couple of boards to get done, this memory kit, and then I'll post the clocking guide.
If only the tridents looked as good as the dominator platinums.

Btw, what are your system specs?

Nice outter views and congrats for the prize!!! what about the inner? Do you have some pics to show us? I'll be glad to see them =)

Haha, no I live near a freeway, so I get a lot of break-pad dust here. Moving soon though so that shouldn't be a hassle for much longer. That dust in those shots was from 1 week - cleaned out the whole PC about a week back

A good friend of mine took the shots with his shiny new Canon camera, so he went mad with the angles Thanks man

System looks great, that's some fine cable management you did!
How'd you like the new mounting system for the Corsair cooler?
I found it relatively painless. I say relatively because I had to remove the X-Socket and put the original LGA2011 backplate on, and that was a PITA, but the actual Corsair mounting system in and of itself was pretty easy to install.

The backplate works better now that they ditched 775. Before you had to keep sliding the pegs around until you could get it to fit your socket, now it's just 1155 or 2011 so you either slide them all the way out or slide them all the way in.

Well guessing by your tabs open, your wiring them in up in series/parallel in your case! Don't know how 4chan helps though.....
