Mounting a MCR320-QP Res R2 upside down? Problems?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So basically title says it all, but a few more details.
I have a MCR320-QP Res R2 that I'm using on an external mount. Just bought a Corsair 540 on the hopes of getting my loop all internal. It looks like the only way this rad can mount is if the "reservoir tip" biggrin.gif is at the bottom. Anyone know if this would cause a problem?

why not just put the fans on top of the rad? it would space it enough to keep the res area from hitting the roof.

If you don't use another reservoir, it might be a problem, air might be trapped along the radiator, instead of inside the reservoir tip.

It's going in the front not the top. The top can only hold a 240.

Think I will do another res to feed the pump
