Ok, so nervous to try it, but I guess ill give it a shot.

Also, when you are running the lines. I know you have 2 sides. In and out. Do you start at pumps out flow and then how do you know which side to go to on each piece, does it matter?

flow path does matter with certain items such as the CPU block, Rads it doesnt matter. pump has an in and an out. so. out of pump into gpu. out of gpu in cpu. out of cpu into rads and back to pump inlet is a fairly normal set up, you could have a Rad between the GPU and CPU.. its all your call

Ok, so Pump to GPU, GPU to CPU, CPU to Rad 1, Rad 1 to Rad 2, ETC.... then back to pump. Correct?

Nice. I am learning. Step by step lol

Biggest thing is, if another Rad will fit up top with fans.

240mm and 2 fans should be fine... push/pull is possible but component dependent

So yea.. after watching that video, it looks like it really doesn't matter the order. Just what really looks best aesthetic wise, to where lines dont look like a jumbled mess.

Also, how did you get your drain plug setup the way you did. How did you link together the y splitter to the shut off valve?

Ive seen people drill a hole in bottom of case and run it that way but I like your method better. You also have a cap on the end? What item is that?

Do I need to run the drain on the in our out side of pump?

i used a Bitspower Male to Male Rotary Fitting between the splitter and drain tap, and the cap is just a cap to ensure the drain doesn't leak (it shouldnt with out the cap).. and looks much nicer. i tried to place the drain as low down in the system as possible to make draining easier....

There are a few million youtube videos about how to bend tubes. There's an art to it but it's not super difficult.

I say that as someone who hasn't built up the courage to commit to a hard-tube setup yet - I am transitioning to a soft-tube arrangement from my AIO while i learn to bend hard tube off on the side. The comparative peace of mind gained from the cost of soft-tube compression fittings and tubing that I'd rip out later is invaluable to me but by no means necessary.
