Default Radiator Question

I was wondering if there is a designated in and out port on radiators, my thermochill PA120.3 doesn't say anything. Does it matter? Please tell me if it matters or not, and if it does tell me which side. A or B

No difference for the 120.2. Either port works fine.

As mentioned, it doesn't matter... however, I'd be careful on how you setup the rad, and which you use as inlet/oulet. Always try to setup your rads so you can drain your system easily.

G'luck.

The only times you would have to worry is when the radiator uses Front-back dual pass design (like the HWlabs GTX360). Not the case with the PA series as they use Side-side dual pass
