The Antec 900 being WC in progress...

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.. I just mounted the Radbox onto the back of the Antec 900... and now if you put the left cover back onto it... there isn't space for it to close on the back, because the radbox is taking it... Anyone with experience with this?

EDIT: THis was the original question.. but I decided to turn it into a work progress for the WCing i'm doing

The radbox comes with plastic separators which if you use them with the long screws should work. Give it a try and let me now. Good Luck

This is one huge picture for you, you need to leave a space about an inch between the case and the radbox.

Hrmmm 2nd question... is it better to have the RAD with the nozzles on teh bottom or nozzles ont he top, just like GTT's rad (pic above..) I was thinking it would be better above... because if it was on the bottom.. the coolant might simply go out of the other nozzle due to gravity. What's your piece of this question?

I also intalling the nozzle at the top I think it just gave it a cleaner look then the bottom. I try it there and the tubing looks like XXXX having it there.

GO GO GO. i want to read lol!
I was thinking of the nozzles are on the bottom of the RAD, due to gravity, the coolant would simply enter one and go out in the other. However, if the nozzles were on the top, the coolant woudl enter one, but gravity would draw it down (the coolant) and then it can be cooled and exit... I wonder if anyone ever did a test on this... nozzle on the top or bottom lol.

It doesn't matter when you have your system bleed. To bleed lay your rad down at the lowest point of your loop and give it a shake once in a while

Also they're called barbs not nozzles!

Having the barbs at the top will probably be eaiser to bleed but once its fully bled there probably won't be any performance difference!
