I personally wouldn't recommend it. Despite the filling machine efforts, I found both samples I had did have a tiny amount of air in the system. We also have at least one person in this thread that mentioned having bubble noise issues when inverted and that went away after making the reservoir upright. Adding a T line or separate reservoir certainly makes it a non issue, but I wouldn't recommend installing with the fill port pointing down otherwise.

Any air in the loop needs a trap ie reservoir or T line.

I have no personal long term experience, but I also think evaporation loss will eventually lead to air entering the system that also needs that trap. I would suggest keeping the reservoir point up or add a separate res/T line so you retain some sort of bubble trap capacity. My 2c

Looking good MadGoat - nice to see another RV02 / H220 combo. How did you 'fix' your H220 to the top of the case fans?

Use the included rad brackets.

Screwd the PSU side bracket to the 180 fan mount holes...

So as my first efforts in water cooling with this loop, i went ahead and ordered some PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing - 3/8in. ID x 5/8in. OD. Should go great with my blue led fans. Plus I got some extra for when im ready to add my 7870 to the line, maybe ill upgrade to a 7970 once i sell my 7870 tahiti and my asus m5a99x evo mobo.. Cant wait to expand to another radiator and a bigger full tower case..biggrin.gif

FWIW, the reservoir should always be pointed "UP" on these. I understand if the unit is completely filled perfectly that you can get away with mounting it inverted, but reservoir up should be the standard practice. As fluid does evaporate or if you have any little pockets of air still in the system, you need the reservoir pointed up to trap the air properly.

that is exactly how mine is set up, except for mine it setup for push pull. 2 fans do fit on the bottom (just barely above the cpu plugs) with an Asus Maximus Formula V mobo.

That was me. Only one persons experience but all noise went away within a couple of minutes when I put the fill port to the top. Previously I had it facing down and the bubble sound did not get any better after a 3 hour leak test. Not only that but it felt like the pump was struggling to move water and at times "bursted" the water through the tubes, instead of a nice steady flow. Again, as soon as I flipped the fill port facing up that problem went away also.

You are certainly right that having a bubble trap is the ideal solution. That said ... isn't every AIO unit save the H220 a res-less system, and don't they seem to work okay without a bubble trap?
