As JE said, make one or if your res has a port on the top, make that your inlet and keep the outlet at the bottom for the pump. Or just get a res that has one, both my koolance res tubes have them

just make sure it's high enough from the base, 2-3 inches to be safe.

Are cyclones bad?
post #4204 of 106449
I guess the smother the flow throughout the loop will ensure unnecessary pressure will not build up and cause any concerns/issues. Maybe helps the impeller w/ a nice smooth flow rather than a crazy one. just my

hey guys, just got my case modded for the sr2. nothing but the mobo itself fits in that thing now. what are the best options for mounting 2x480 rads on top and on back of the case?
post #4206 of 106449
use rad brackets, there are quite a few different types. most attach to any fan mounting/holes.
post #4207 of 106449
any recommendations? when i do a search for radiator brackets the stuff that shows up dosent look like it will work.
post #4208 of 106449
XSPC brackets, but depending on your setup, you might wanna research. an alternative, which I did to front mount a 360 on a HAF 932, raid the hardware store and get/make some makeshift brackets, most common rad screws are 6/32 (US) and M4 or M3 (Metric).

Yes, they allow air to get down to the level of the outlet line that usually is connected to your pump. This will induce air into the lines which will increase the noise and reduce the cooling efficiency of a loop at a minimum. Worst case most pumps do not self prime so if you get a large enough bubble at the inlet the pump will stop working (WC pumps push water great, but suck water terribly which is why most put a res in front of the inlet to feed the pump).

Pump stop working in the middle of the night and your temps will go through the roof without you knowing it, possibly damaging all your gear.

Cyclones are very bad.

Not 100% sure, but I think cyclones are swirling air currents (ala hurricanes, tornados). whirlpools are the swirling vortexes (plural correct ) in fluid/liquid. someone correct me if Im wrong

Big No-No to have swirly in your res
