cpu block orientation

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
does it make a difference whether the cpu block has it's inlet and outlet ports side by side, or one above the other? the way my loop is panning out, it looks like it'll be more convenient to have the inlet and outlet oriented vertically, not sure if this is bad at all, haven't seen it discussed anywhere. thoughts?

In some cases, yes. Some blocks preform better vertically and some better horizontally, it also depends on your CPU too, what socket and core placement. I would just go with whatever the instructions tell you to, you'd probably end up saving 2-3*C at most.

Charlie will probably end up answering you question better and in more detail anyway.
