    Well hey guys! Im working on a custom watercooling system that runs outside of my pc! This is what I have to work with and Im using 3/8 inch tubing. Any suggestions would be great!

    Edit: Oh and what would be the best fan placement for my rad? Im putting 2 120mm Red LED fans.

    This is my setup.

    Two pluses to the way I have mine is this..

    #1 I can easily drain the loop by disconnecting the hose at the pump over a bowl.
    #2 the rad. can be layed on the desk to bleed then set back up top for final position.

    what kind of RAD? usually pull is best

    will you be making a "RAD box" to house the L/C gear in or just mounting the RAD externally?

    using 1/2" fittings with 3/8" hose eliminates the need for clamps. Also the I/D if the 1/2 fittings wont plase restrictions on flow.

    Here is my rig with everything but the water blocks mounted outside the case. Out of the 20 water connections only 6 are inside the case. Brings the chances of leaks inside the case down.

    Nice! The liquid I have is non-conductive but I will only have 2 connections in the case for the water block and the rest will be outside.
