Is this a problem? Would you redo the loop?

Or am i just to concerned ?

 

 

 

 

Edit: There is no Tension on the Tube if that helps and if i give it a little push from the side i can form it like the other one

@W-L, @Mick Naughty, and @0ld_Chicken would know more than I would, but I think that's bad.

Honestly it being a compression fitting, it should be fine. Could always re seat it, so its straight like the other one. Ive don't much worst. If it aint leaking with heat and pressure in the system, it prolly never will.

Good to hear that! It was running for about 6 hours externaly and now about 4 hours under gaming load and no leaks at all! I will probably redo it in the near future but at least i dont have to worry for the next few days !

I would redo it if it were me,  you really don't know how much is being held behind that compression fitting until you take it apart.  Every time I've seen that the one side was all the way over the barb and just under the compression collar.  Too risky imo

That's what it looks like unter the compression fitting is this okay? 

That is not far down enough on the barb portion it should be flush with the bottom. If you have trouble getting it all the way down try dipping the end in hot water to soften the tubing.
