    Mounting radiator horizontal with tubes pointing upwards?(Closed loop)


    Hello! :) I'm just wondering, but does anyone know if its any downsides by placing a radiator horizontal, with the tubes pointing upwards? Can it cause air bubbles in the loop? (When using a closed loop liquid cooler)

    Where would you put it in the case to do that ?

    And what size is the radiator you are considering doing this with ?

    Is it an All in One cooler ?

    I'm using an All in One cooler. The size of the radiator is 240mm.
    Because of my small case design, I would have liked to place the radiator at the bottom of the case, installed with 2x120mm fans. (Also working as intake fans to my system) The PSU is mounted at the top left in my case, which gives my radiator a lot of space at the bottom.

    Not a good idea, pump has to be at lowest point of cooling system.

    Oh, okay. Thanks. Is it a reason why?

    Yes, even AiOs are not filled all the way because of liquid expansion needs and air bauble has to form somewhere usually at top highest point, Pump can't prime itself and needs to be in liquid to start pumping.

    That makes sense. Thanks again for the help!

    That can`t be true because the pump on an AIO is on top of the cpu, and many people have put the radiator in the front or on the bottom well below the pump.

    Persoanlly, I like the PSU at the bottom, fan facing down, and the radiator at the top, if you have video cards that blow hot air into the case, then having the radiator in the front would be the best option.
