Custom Liquid Cooling Reservoir above radiator

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can I configure a custom liquid cooling loop like this?

Everyone I see that does it has the Radiator mounted on top of their case but I cannot configure mine like that so I was wondering if I could mount it to the front 2 intake fans.
I will be using this kit

I think it would work just fine, just make sure you have ample room, and how are you going to configure the airflow? My hafx I used a 360 rad mounted to the top with a push pull config and while using the PC the heat coming from the rad can be felt. If I were you I would have the air blowing out the front of your case, and reverse some fans to get some outside air to the inside of your case. Just remember heat rises so leave any fans at the top as exhaust. By the way what type of case do you have?

I was thinking about having the front fans intake and the top and back exaust, would the fans on the front being blowing too hot of air from the radiator to cool the rest? Also would I benefit from having my power supply suck air from the bottom out side of the case and exaust it out the back?

You could try it that way, I just think that the heat going into the case would potentially heat up your components, unless you have 3 or 4 more fans exhausting air I don't think it'd be too much of a problem. But if you do decide to go that route keep an eye on your temps. Watch your Gpu, Cpu, and Mobo temps; for me my Mobo temp. never goes above 30 degrees Celsius, since I'm exhausting hot air out of my case.
