Ah, I forgot about the alignment of that res-pump unit where the inlet and outlet ports aren't coaxial with one another. That makes sense. Thanks Huda!Can you do it? Yes. Will you regret it? Possibly.
With a tube run that short, if it were straight, then it wouldn't make a difference. But the outlet of the pump/res and the inlet of the radiator isn't going to be perfectly aligned (at least I haven't come across a radiator with perfect alignment that also allows the under PSU fan spot to be open). So you'll end up having to space the pump/res further from the radiator, potentially causing conflict with the top panel or you have such tight bends in the tube that you kink them or have the pump/res stick out the side.
I am using the 1U ES DDC res. With the TX240 you need 2x offset fittings (bitspower across and barrow makes them too) and 1 rotary male to male connector. Right now, I am switching to bitspower leviathan, and for that the same fittings will work also, but just barely. I think a dual rotary 90 degree fitting would work better.Ah, I forgot about the alignment of that res-pump unit where the inlet and outlet ports aren't coaxial with one another. That makes sense.

Question: You're still on a TX240, right? I forget if you were ever on the DC-LT 40 as well though. If so, do you happen to remember the fittings to build that extender run?
Very interesting! This could've been automatic end game radiator if it didn't have such low FPI and what looks like very few water tubes...this paired with 2x A12x25 with basically a thinner TX240 would easily beat any other combo, I would bet.
That is very interesting.Got the 25mm-thick Coolworld 240 radiator w/ fill port in. Top (closest to camera) is Coolworld, bottom is LT240-
And for those that orient the radiator in the traditional layout (tubing ports underneath the PSU), the fill port does appear to line up very well with the hole in the back of the case if you mount the fan between the radiator and motherboard. I believe W360 has the radiator (or posted pics of it previously), so he might be able to verify it.
I actually have one of these coming my way. I doubt it will perform well though, as it has those round (instead of flat) water channels, which have been shown to not work as well. See for example https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/05/18/aqua-computer-airplex-radical-2-copper-radiator-review/
Then, the second choice is the EKWB 3.25. But keep it at low speed, between 20 and 40 max!Thx I tried reading through thread again and finally found it about an hour after I posted that comment.
What is your second choice? It seems that ppcs doesn't ship to Canada right now and I can't find it anywhere else
I'm using L12S on Aorus x570 wit pipes in horizontal position so it's the same with flipped as normal.I found out today on reddit that this case only supports the L12S on one direction. So if you use the case flipped then the CPU cooler will be bad positioned according to what noctua recommends.
I’ve been trying to find opinions about this but didn’t find much, so I’m asking just in case anyone knows if it is better having the case flipped despite this or having it defaultwith the good position of the L12S but the case fans on the bottom.
It has the fabio stamp of approval of course. Companies have to jump through hoops, spend thousands on bribes and sabotage the competition.What's the difference between 1T Plus and the 3.25? My guess is 1T Plus has lower RPM, thus lower power consumption and noise?
