That radiator port, closest to you...

Did you factor a drain port into the loop...?


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

Could you maybe do more photos from other angles, showing us access to other places like radiator? Thanks

I put mine on the slightly higher (inlet) res port and it doesn't work very well.
