Ok thanks. But for vertical orientation, can you guys explain why the 2 hoses should be on the bottom? I don't get the idea why that should be necessary.

Ive had rads in all positions and angles. For me, ive never had any issues with orientation. Which ever fits you setup better.

Because cravinmild said that if you mount it vertically, the hoses should be on the bottom. So now I'm wondering where the hoses are if mounted horizontally (in the bottom fan slot).

LOGIC, MAN. The only reason the hoses needed to be at the bottom was because there's a bit of air in the system, which naturally rises to the top. If your hoses are at the top, you'll suck down air. Knowing that, you'll know that whilst being mounted in the bottom of a case tubing placement does not matter.

Sorry for being a noob for you, man. But I still don't get. I don't understand how the hoses woud suck air when they are at the top even though air naturally rise. The hoses are closed, right? So how would air be sucked in. Not too familiar how rad works.

Has nothing to do with how "Rads work". The water flows through it, the rad is just another part of a liquid loop.

The air gets to the top of the loop, naturally. If the tubes are positioned on the top of the radiator, and the radiator is the highest point in the loop, then the tubes will only be fed air ...

Got it! Thanks for being patient with me. If I understand it correctly, then if the hoses are in the bottom there will still be air fed to the tubes but very minimal?

No then it's just water headscratch.gif


Once the air is up top, it's stuck there



PS. Someone please jump in and correct me if I'm wrong

Wouldn't the pump force the water to keep flowing, or possibly the air bubbles to flow through the tube?

No o.O My instinctive physics says that's a pretty definitive no

The air just stays trapped, due to it's density it has the tendancy to rise. The water simply flows around it

What if the tad is in the top fan slot, where will the air be trapped? In the center of the rad?

In the top of the rad (assuming it's perfectly level

Doesn't matter because the tubes come out the bottom
