I actually tried using the Bitspower SLI connectors, and strangely it caused restriction in the flow (I didnt expect to see that from such a short path). I'll use an SLI connector when it has a larger inner diameter. Thats why I have them on tubing, but I agree it does look sloppy. I have found an EK FC link/connector, so next month I'll switch them over (parallel flow).

How are you measuring flow? It's hard to believe that adding 2 90s to a loop would get a better flow than a slighty smaller ID (which did you use? can you provide a link?).

You can do parallel flow with regular SLI fittings, you just need 2 of them. Like so:

I know it's hard to believe, like I said...I didnt expect that either. This is the one Bitspower SLI / Crossfire Crystal Link Tube Set - 2 Slot Spacing (BP-CLTAC-S2) - FrozenCPU.com I used, and I only used one (series) which is probably the reason for the restriction. I know it took around two hours to circulate the air from my loop with the sli connector and the flow was very minimal (you could tell without a flow indicator), where as it only took fifteen minutes with the tubing and flow appears to be optimal. Besides, I think the EK FC bridge/link looks better aesthetically than the sli connector. I'm going to implement a fillport and drain port in the loop next month so that loop changing is streamlined.

WoW. Your guys' wiring management makes my PC look like its garbage inside. haha. Would it be bad if I dismantle everything and start it all over again? Reconnecting everything so the wiring will look good? Or is that highly discouraged as I might do more harm than good.
