Thread Starter 
i just got to the point where i need to mount my Swiftech MCRES reservoir and it got me to thinking....does the reservoir HAVE to be above the pump or can it be mounted on the bottom of the case ?

preferably above the pump, that gives a driving head to the suction of the pump which ensures the pump has a suction

Well i have mine on the bottom of my case, no problems!
Nope it doesent have to be above the pump, but its better if it is so you can
get all the bubbles out well. try raise it slightly if you can.

Once you have finished filling and bleeding the loop, you can put it anywhere. xD

But before all of that, just leave it loose so you can help with bleeding.

Like NEvolution said leave enough slack in it so you can pick it up higher to bleed...Thats the advantage of a res quick bleeding...If you going to put it low you would be better off with a T-Line...
