I just installed my first custom waterloop from Corsair, but I have the following problem:

 

In the first picture, you see the implementation of the pump in my system.
In the second one, there is Corsairs manual that says, the front left and the left port are outlets, but then, they say it is mandatory to use the front left port as an outlet.

 

Have I done everything right or is it wrong that way?

You can use either of the left ports as outlet. It's an error in their documentation, you can see in figure 3 that both ports are marked as outlet. 

 

There's plenty of people using it the way yours is configured, including OriginPC:

From what I see that is correct and ports used and shouldn't be an issue. As long as you use the correct inlet and outlet usually the use of 1 of 2 options provided is optional

There's a line to both the ports on the left.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
