I am setting up my first water cooling system this weekend (excited) and have a quick question.
I plan to install the Rad on the outside of the case using a Koolance extend bracket: koolance.jpg
The rad will then be able to accommodate 5 fans. Should I use a push/pull configuration? Obviously I will be unable to cool the VRM as the bracket is attached to the exhaust fan grill. I do however have three 120mm fans on the top of the case to do just that.
I am thinking that without the room to place the rad inside the case I will actually be able to make up a degree or two in overall cooling. I have 5 Cougar vortex fans to attach to to the rad. Ultimately what I am getting at is should I have the air blowing away from my PC or towards it? Sounds stupid I guess, but I will now be without an exhaust fan...
