Wall mount for radiator?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Due to space reasons, I need a relatively small case (probably a Silverstone FT03), but I'd like to get a high-end setup and watercool for heat/noise reasons, and the easiest way for me to do it would be to mount the radiator flush against the wall.

I'm just wondering, though, is there a wall mount specific to any radiator that I could use, or is this something I would have to go and custom-make?

I'm sure you can make something out of some shelving brackets and sheet metal?

why would you mount it flush on a wall? if you have the fans blowing air up against the wall, the hot air is just going to come right back into the rad. if you have the fans up against the wall then they won't be able to pull any of the air around them.

You could probably use a shroud and mount that directly to the wall and put holes in the shroud to let air escape.

Sorry, may have used the wrong way to say it - I meant parallel with the wall, so there's nothing blocking intake or exhaust.
