Rad placement

Last response: in Overclocking

Hello toms I need help with the bottom rad placement for my 800d. Is it better to lay it flat with a 120 pulling air from bottom or on it's side fittings facing front with fans on back? I have a 240 and want to know which would be more efficient?

Second on the EK advanced 250 are the tubes or the anti cyclone better? If tubes are I am guessing the shorter tube feeds the pump and the longer feeds from the loop.

Thanks

you don't need push/ pull on this rad, 1000~1400rpm in pull is all you need for XSPC RX

If you have to only run 1 set of fans on a rad, typically pull is your best bet...you'll get the most of the airflow from the fans that way with mid to low range fans.

Completely turn of your PC (including the PSU), wipe it all down, and wait at least 24 hours until you turn it on,use hair dryer

I am having a issue with the middle fan on the top (i have it set as rad,shroud inside and fans in top outside the middle fan is making noise) I have tried 2 sets of fans completely changed out and same issue... I think its being pinched. any ideas? Should I take the shroud off and move the fan inside case??

Fan on case



Shroud inside case




I think the shroud may be making the fans pinch

loosen the screw and see if it makes the difference
Edit; I would flip that white fan and make it an intake for your 360 :sol:

Will do that!!! I also added a fill port on the top on this rig and a drain as you can see. Will start a new thread close this one.
