Default XC7 RGB / inlet outlet valve specifics

Corsair Team or other knowledgeable advisers...

Why does the XC7 RGB have a "direction" ? inlet and outlet
It's not pumping anything so why would the direction the coolant flows matter?




Build Notes:
ROG Crosshair VIII
AMG 3900x
2080 Founders w/ XG7
XD5 and two radiators (yes two radiators)
1) XR5 360 on the front of the Obsidian 500D
2) and its littl brother 240 on the top

Because it's designed for the coolant to flow in that particular direction; there are channels in there directing the coolant flow. You can reverse it but you'll lose efficiency.

Ah, understood
Speedy reply much appreciated DevBiker

So... you know where I'm going with this
I'm a lazy turd and the outlet port is PERFECTLY located for my build as it stands right now and the thought of deconstructing and reversing the XC7 ports gives me indigestion...

I'm going forge onward and report back my findings

You can rotate the bezel trim to effectively switch inlet/outlet sides.... i did this.... 4 screws and rotate

Well son-of-a-bitch !

That sounds like even a lazy turd such as myself could muster up the gumption and get that done...
