Solved Reservoir/Pump location Tags: Water Cooling Overclocking Last response: May 9, 2012 3:24 PM in Overclocking Share niceguyjin May 8, 2012 11:04:51 PM I'm just trying to clarify the difference between putting the reservoir "above" the pump, as opposed to "before" the pump. If I have a loop with the the reservoir below the pump, yet before it in the loop, is this a bad/risky idea? Gravity>pump reliability? Thanks!
