Where to put rad in my pc?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a CM Storm Stryker and as anyone who owns this knows, there is not a lot of room for a top mounted rad. I'm not planning to buy an fully custom loop, just maybe a xspc kit or maybe a swiftech h220 and add on later down the road. If I was to add a top rad, I would have to go buy a thin rad, and i have had people recommend the black ice gt stealth. Now here is the question, would it be better for a rad to be on the bottom drawing cool air, and releasing hot air into the case, or to have it on the top drawing warm air through the rad? I know this seems obvious but I'm worried that bringing all that warm air in may cause my video card to run warm since it will not be in the loop.

Sorry for my ignorance on the matter, and thanks in advance for your patience in helping me make this decision. biggrin.gif

I have tried many different set ups over the years and it only makes 2 c difference really as long as you have good flow in and out .
