i have a 3x120mm radiator

is there any problem caused by mounting it upsidedown

(mounted on the back of my case with the tubing on the bottom?)

The rads intalled position/orientation makes no difference. Just make sure to move the rad from end to end and side to side to remove any air pockets before install..........as it's a bit more difficult to accomplish once it's attached to the PC.

Not a problem mounting upside down...just a bit more of a pain getting the system primed up...
