Talking CoolIT ECO question.

So ive just purchased this CoolIT ECO Cpu Water Cooling Kit,Now i know its not considered a "Real" water cooling setup,But its probably the best i can get to it without having to spend a furtune.

Anyway i have a question,Should i mount the Rad at the top of my case with it exhausting the hot air out the top of my case (Coolermaster CM690)?
Or mount it at the rear of the case exhausting?

What would be best?

Rear is best as the fan on the front will help push any warm air out through the rad.

Then mount a low speed fan on the roof blowing out and you'll be good.

Yup, thats the best way to do it really. Ena's suggestion really works best. I've used two now.

Default Radiator Mounted on Top Exhaust

Here is a link to CoolIt Systems forum about the question put to this forum:
Radiator Mounted on Top Exhaust - CoolIT

" There is a small air bubble which we want to trap inside the upper tank. By "flipping" the assembly, so the coolant lines will be at the top, will allow the air to be drawn into the liquid loop and travel through the pump. This makes the pump noisy. "

If you would like to read more forum topics about the CoolIt ECO and their other products, here is the link for that as well
