Rad Position

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello.. i got a amd FX liquid cooler (Asatek with FX logo on it) and has any AIO liquid cooler.. i was wondering if there is any diference between mounthing the rad.. with the tubing coming from the bottom or the top of it.. (obviously when they come from the bottom the tubes touch the top of the GPU)

i do this question cuz i get one that for some reason stop working (with only 3 months of use).. and my pc did reset like 3 times for overheating when i notice that the cooler wasnt actually cooling i stop using it.. and let it a side but i still wonder if maybe it run out of liquid on the pump cuz i installed it with the tubes coming from the top of the rad

I've had my several AIO units in every which direction one could think of. Never hurt them or the cooling at all.

I would check to make sure your pump didn't die itself, that is another possibility.

Yes indeed that was the first think i get.. but just was wondering.. of why should it die so quickly.. maybe some positioning or.. fan setting on the mobo.. maybe just factory defect.. and well it's OC.net man.. it can be helpful to someone.. n.n even me ? biggrin.gif
