All In One's in a Bitfenix Prodigy , is the orientation an issue?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone reading.

This is probably a silly question, but i am considering getting an All in one cooler of some description to place in my Gaming PC, I have a Bitfenix Prodigy Case, this has the motherboard in a horizontal position. I just was wondering if the pumps in the all in ones are ok in this position? as most all PCs have the board mounted vertically.

Like i say, probably a silly question.

Currently have an i5-3570k, with a fairly generic Air cooler on it, not the stock one, but nothing fancy. My GPU is an AMD 6950. But i just snagged a 7990 cheap, and i am understanding this is a monster of a heater, so hence i thought updating the cooling on the CPU would be a good idea. Plan was to get a 240 Rad cooler, and top mount it, outside the case taking away any heat issues from GPU affecting the CPU.

Oh i guess also, advice on cooler choices, a freinds rig we built a few years back has a h100i. but looking at a few sites the last day or two im considering maybe this or a Raijintek Triton, which is rather much cheaper, but seems to have had pretty good reviews (plus has standard pipe fittings, so could be upgraded later?)

Thanks in advance for any reply's and advice.

Hi,

DonĀ“t worry you can mount and run those AIO kits in all positions !

Suggestions for a good kit: Thermaltake Extreme 3.0, Swiftech Hxx, Cooler Meister Seidon, Alphacool Eisberg or the Fractal Kelvin

Beware of the Triton, there were plenty of cracked res.in the past

The computer I handed down to my wife this past week is running an vi impact w/h80i no problems. I know when I built it, it was a very tight fit(have it in the rear exhaust). I believe it seemed like an h100 would fit on top but might have a hard time with tubing
