Hi all, Have edited this request to be more to the point: I'm trying to install my H150i RGB PRO XT pump on to my CPU but am finding it difficult to position it with the Corsair logo facing the correct direction. I saw some posts saying it doesn't matter which way the logo goes but I called Corsair and they said you must install with the logo facing up. As can be seen from the attached photos, the pump does just about fit with the logo the right way up but I'm holding it with some force here. When I release the pressure, the pump head naturally springs 90 degrees clockwise so that the top of the logo faces to the right. I think the side intake position is causing the issue. Is this normal and is it fine to still screw the pump onto the CPU with logo facing up and let the screws hold the tension? Do my tubes look fine or are the bends too sharp? Thank you for any help
Gamers Nexus recommended orienting vertically mounted radiators with the water lines entering the bottom to reduce the chance that air bubbles will cause circulation problems. One early review of the Airflow 4000D pointed out that you can not correctly mount a 360mm radiator at the front because the gap between the radiator and lower shroud is too narrow to accommodate the water lines. You must therefore mount the radiator "upside-down" in a not recommended orientation. You also can not mount a top radiator unless you have low-profile (LPX) RAM. I don't have LPX RAM, and I would rather rock my Dominator Platinum RGBs. And finally, a 280mm radiator at the front looks terrible. I am considering a case upgrade to the 4000D Airflow because of the great thermal performance reported in the reviews, and it looks much nicer than my 680X. So given the criteria of looks, performance, and having a reliable configuration, what is the best way to water cool this case using an AIO? Could you loop the pipes through a cable gap at the bottom? Note: I do hope Corsair develop a 360mm radiator with L bend attachments at the base so it could front mount on the 4000D Airflow.
