There's no difference in the inlet and outlet on the Apogee. As long as the block itself is in the correct orientation. With a triple rad, you find a 15C difference from running air cooled? That's it? I'm surprised. Have you tried push/pull config on the rad, or changing fans?

I think you didn't see my whole reply, since I edited it with the temperature question.

ah yes your right, i didnt get it all. I've got the dual rad with two glacial tech 900rpm fans on it, and the triple with one glacial tech and two yate loons. i had to cheep out on the fans cause i ran out of room on my cc when i made my order ;X i was just going to get some from the local shop but it turned out they only had the glacial tech, so i had to make due... would i see alot of difference changing the fans to yate loons?

It depends what are the specs of the Glacial Tech.

Noctuas aren't cheap. YLs, or even Scythes would probably be a huge improvement. And I'm a fan (pun intended) of running push/pull configs with 5V...

is it better to run the fans off the mainboard casefan pins or with the molex? how the $%^& am i going to run the cabling fo 10 + fans for push pull??? if i got 3 good 120 mm fans pushing, would it be just fine to run the glacial tecs as pullers, or would it still be "alot" better to have all 10 fans as the better kind? would i benifit from removing the double and running push pull with the two yates and 4 glacial techs on the triple till i can come up with the cash to get the better fans?
