Apogee XT and HeatKiller Ver3 Designs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm look at the Apogee XT and the HEATKILLER Ver3 designs. They both have outlets that are upward, why not make them sideway? Is it better to put them sideway but it's a matter of whether the block fits in the Mobo?

Another question:-
I knew that it is most important to cool the core/center of a CPU, wouldn't it be better if I close the center (i.e. a closed circle in the inside of the block) with water outlet and inlet. And then make another outlet and inlet for the outer part of the block?
Like this (just showing the idea):

Red is outlets, Blue is inlets

Well same as you consider sideways better, others consider upwards better.

Most likely the general and most easy way is upward, as that way they do not restrict a direction of installation and it makes people easier to select how and in what way to install the block.

Same with why most GPU blocks have connectors from the side of the GPU, and bitspower make the threads at the top instead.
They just think its more comforable.
