Isn't it obvious? That way, you are using the standard case airflow.
Intake on the front, exhaust on the back.

But that still requires you to either pull out the whole H50 and take it to the bathroom (rofl) or run water near your case while the rad is hanging out. So you're suggesting we bathe our radiator? No ****ing way LOL

Sure, but getting much lower temps? I did it both ways in my 902 and it dropped 1 or 2 degrees, not to mention all that air coming off the rad was blowing onto my components.

Placing it on the back as an intake would also blow air into other components.
Placing it on the front as an intake and using a back exhaust fan would be healthier & better, I suppose.

I will try again different placements today and will post results.

Yes, I meant exhausting out the back or in my case up top.

I see. The good thing about the drive bay placement is that it works as fan shroud as well I suppose?

Sure, I did the whole shroud thing back when I was using GT 1850's in my 902 and temps maybe dropped a degree. I even tried it on the bottom 180mm in my FT02 with a bracket. Same result...
I will agree it's fun to experiment with, but in the end its just not worth a degree or two imo.

Yes the front bay seems to be the way to go regardless of how you set up the Rad in the bay or on the ceiling. I'm doing the latter cause I'm going to be using all 6 of my bays. 2 of them with shallow mount devices, so it works for me. When I go full on h2o then I'll just rotate the orientation of my bay devices.

That Silverstone case shouldn't need to move anything around since the exhausts are set to the North. Okay sorta.

Im glad you sorted your high temps m8, and dropped quite a bit! Next week is when im going to be installing my new setup and my 5870. Got loads of "fat" cable ties for the front intake drive bay mount and the more and more I look up on my new fans the more and more I get excited at the low temps I shud be getting. Just gotta make sure now I reseat the H50 with new Shin-etsu paste correctly

But then I decided to move HAF 932 to the floor because it is more comfortable and I have more space, and then I realised that in the back of the case, there was a lot of heat.

I decided to put the H50 back on the Drive bays with some zip-ties as intake (I installed a fan filter on the first fan Just don't want dust! ) and I gained 4ºC iddle and almost 7ºC on load

So deffinitly, put it in the front intaking fresh air, like I did.

I have a few friends with i7 980X which are really into liquid cooling, and that's how they do it, they say it's the best way to clean the radiator 100%, because with an air compressor some dust will always remain. Just saying, I didn't try yet, I might try it soon though.

Yeah, my temps were pretty high because I have the HAF 932 next to the wall so all the heat from the H50 exhausts fans, the HD5970 and the PSU was all stuck together and the H50 radiator was pretty hot.

Now in front I lowered temps by 6ºC on load, that is pretty nice indeed.

Wouldn't throwing water into the radiator/fins make it rust?
