Corsair 570x loop redesign help

Last week I updated my pc and kind of rushed new watercooling parts into my loop(specifically my photon 270 res/pump combo,) as I thought the 570x would have plenty of room for it. Turns out I don't have nearly as much room as I thought. In a month I'm going on vacation and while I'm gone I have to RMA my strix 1080ti since some of the leds are dead on my fan shroud. Once I get back I'd like to delid my 8700k, put a waterblock on my strix, and redo my loop.

 

Currently I have an xspc ex360, photo 270 w/D5, and xspc raystorm block. I'd like to replace the ex360 with an rx360-v3 rad that I have and add an alphacool 240 rad on the top of my case. I should be able to squeeze my rx360 in with no problem as long as I find a place for a new res/pump top/???. I'm thinking a photon 170 res would mount on top of my psu shroud if I put a waterblock on my gpu.  Even still with the rx360 in the strix card is HUGE.


Just looking for some advice/ideas. Everything's up in the air.

Your resevoir is way to long to be practical

maybe try to do shorter more concies loops or for 90 degree fittings

Indeed. I'm thinking a pump top mounted by the psu at the bottom of the case and a reservoir of some kind at mounted where the rear 120mm fan would go or on top of the psu.
