No, just vertically secured to the "floor" of my case.

Got it. Monsoon doesn't make a mount for the bottom. You would want to use the fan/rad mounts, which would allow you to mount to any of the fan openings on the intake or side panel - https://www.performance-pcs.com/mmrs...kit-120mm.html

They are available in 120 and 140mm mounting sizes.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Seems like they just aren't available in the UK

That's a shame. You could pretty easily fashion something similar.

Or, if you really want to mount to the bottom of the case, go with the Heatkiller.

I'll have a look at the Heatkiller.

Do you have any opinions on radiators? I dont know whether to go EK, XSPC, Black Ice, Alphacool etc. etc. I'd like to keep the cost around £70 for a 360mm.

Monsoon actually does have a vertical mounting kit MMRS-MT-VRT Chrome link for example https://www.performance-pcs.com/mons...nt-chrome.html I did a quick search on the overclockers uk site and didn't see it maybe you could try contacting them?

#2 That tactical and overly designed styles to appeal to the modern look of "a Transformer crashed through my wall like the Coolaid man and took a dump on my desk" is not my style lol.

This is for me now, OP it doesn't mean you need to make these decisions, so keep that in mind, I am just a fan of a computer looking like well... a computer haha.
It is designed that way because it uses compression instead of threading on the tube to keep everything sealed therefore removing the main failure point that plague many reservoirs. To each their own on aesthetics.

It depends where the rad is going to be placed, simply because the HWL rads don't fit in some locations of that case. It also depends on your goal, is it silence or lowest possible temps regardless of it sounding like someone is vacuuming your room?

Here is a good look at some 360mm rads - https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/1...-round-2015/5/

I'm partial to HWL GTS and SR2 rads because I like silence. With that said, if I couldn't fit an HWL, I would use an XSPC RX V3 (which I have in several builds for that reason).

I'm definitely prioritizing silence over outright performance. I didn't realize radiators were a contributing factor to sound levels?

Ultimately i'll end up with 2 360mm rads once i add the a GPU to the loop, and the plan in my head was one up top and one on the bottom/floor. I haven't yet worked out if having one on the bottom/floor would leave enough room to mount the pump/res.

Different rads react differently to airflow and are designed for efficiency at different airflow levels. If you look at the charts in the link I posted, you will see a far different performance order in the rads as the speed increases. So, rads make a difference in sound in as much as some simply don't need as much airflow to work effectively. If you are prioritizing silence, an Nemesis 360 GTS on top, and an SR-2 on the bottom is a pretty unbeatable combo in the PC-O11. There are a couple of threads here from users who have done exactly that.

Thanks for that. Can i ask why one GTS and one SR2 instead of two GTS' or two SR2s?
