Talking above...?

With the radiator mounted at the top of the case, you'll have no problems keeping the pump primed and your Kuhler should work no problem.

For that reason, as a general rule of thumb with the pre-filled water coolers, keep the radiator ABOVE the pump/cold plate.

Hope this helps. :)
Currently I have an Antec 920 installed and with the rad ports on the bottom and the water block connected so the antec logo reads correctly and the hoses are underneath it. all the lines and ports are parallel.

Questions:

Should the tubes be entering the block/pump from above or below? Should the tubes be at the top or bottom of radiator?How much above can i get here?
