That makes sense when the gpu is the closest to the tubes, but the way it is for me the sound card occupies the first PCI slot so chances are with the tubes coming from the bottom it will be resting on the sound card instead. I cant see that affecting the GPU right? just the sound card.

I also think it looks better in the orientation that I have the cables. (Up instead of down, that is)

A sound card puts out a bit of heat as well, but it should be negligible imo.

I would think so. Any intake fans will pull in dust, especially when your PC is on the floor.

I have a few post's to get through tonight, so i'll post one at a time. Okay that sounds great in theory but the tubes are a rubberized compound make them a great insulator.

If anything you've created resistance for water flow, your "tubes" being at the top of your radiator is meaning your pump is working harder to circulate water. Doesn't it make sense to create a path with the least amount of resistance?

Still trying to find out if a plastic 80mm to 120mm fan converter mounted vertically will hold the weight of the radiator. What do people think?

Thanks.

i know a 3.5" bay res is tiny and won't add a lot of fluid to the mix, but on my Lian Li A05, it would be a nice way to occupy the front 3.5" bay.

would the 620's pump be affected much by the extra water/tubing?

No way, very silly idea. Look at the size of a pump on a say a swiftec or danger den water cooling kit . Antec have designed this system to circulate a small volume of water in a continuous cycle. If you were to add a reservoir it would slow down the flow of water meaning your water will be slower flowing thru your water block meaning its going to be taking alot more heat.

Reservoirs on proper water-cooling systems are there to create the extra volume of water required to keep the pump happy.

Example http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_296&products_id=12667 800L an hour?

800L of flow an hour, Its not a pressure rated pump its a flow rated pump. Its cable of flowing 800l of water an hour if its has the capacity to flow, water going thru a radiator slows the flow there fore the reservoir job is to maintain a constant supply of water.

You want to mount the radiator in the top of your case making the pump work harder then replace to 120mm fan with a 80mm ?

This is where I'm at the moment. Might post some bench marks later. I'm waiting on a few sets of pwm fans. All being fans designed around maximum cfm and minimal noise.

I want to mount the radiator and fan on a rear 80mm exhaust hole which would be vertical not horizontal.
