    Oh well you are screwed without 90* fittings then. You will see when you try to connect the hoses straight on with a fan and a header from another rad they you wont have the room to attach it!

    Even with this rad....http://www.jab-tech.com/xcart/product_images/detailed/d_2527.jpg

    Unless one rad is 90* from the other you have to use 90*'s...not the best plan IMHO!

    Edit: The link you posted it to a 2X120 rad...you are laying 2 of those in your case?

    I think if you rotate the rads 180 deg you will be fine without the 90s.
    (and the masterclear is not very flexible)

    that would work so i only needed 2 90s and those would be on the front rad short of punching the tubing out the front i cant get around it

    swapped for some tygon R-3400

    If you rotate the rad 180* it will be in the exact position you started...the rad is a mirror image of itself on a 45* cut through it.


    EDIT: or do you mean in a back to back sort of arrangement?

    im thinking take my original image and face the front rad so the fittings faced the other rad. on the front rad put a 90 degree fitting to the side of the case and run the inside most rads top fitting to it and on the bottom fitting a 90 again but point it out to the side and run it towards the mobo tray and run it up to my cpu block :D

    i think thats what he meant but it wont fit in the front of my case

    IDK i payed through my teeth ($3.50 a foot) for Tygon...6 months later its cloudy. Also I agree it wont kink, but I have tried to make a couple of turns ion SLI that it flattened right out on.

    Not all that impressed for the money to be honest...Going with red tubing next, something new!

    Sad to hear that, i have two hard bends together on the last rad->res plug and no one kinked never, i can only say good things about Tygon though i never tested a SLI/X-Fire plug, i'll tell you :)

    Well on further examination , your "Quantity: 2" will leave that oh shit in place upon arrival. I say around 10ft is usually good. get 15 if you think you may change things up a bit after the initial setup!

    @ SirKeldon...if not for the clouding , for my CPU it works great. I love that it stays soft, I have used a lot of tubing before for fishtanks/pumps. It always got rockhard in 6 months. It may have had something to do with the PC ICE coolant I was using as well. Who knows?

    That was my first assumption, but you missed the part where he links to his type of rads. They have a barb in opposite corners, no like ours!

    Also on the links to the tubing...I am looking to nab the red varient on my next major buy(offsets shipping a bit)!
