Hi all thanks for looking.

I've installed the aio water block onto the cpu but the water pipes have quite a lot of pressure on them because of the angle also the pipes are stopping me from putting the side of the case on as it's pressing against them! Where they come out of the water block can I turn the angled connectors slightly or are they fixed please?

Postimages.org is good too, allows for zoom.

There should not be any pressure on the connections. With an aio, the tubing is compression fit over barbs, so pressure on the connections is counter-productive and if not damage the connection then possibly create a leak. Most aios you can turn the entire connection at the pump. Lopsided pressure applied to the fittings at the pump puts lopsided pressure on the pump itself, which pushes on the cpu, lopsided.
