    CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML240R RGB Fan placement (NZXT S340Elite, Asus X Apex)

    Hi all,

    I'm running into a dilemma.

    My CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML240R RGB manual is telling me to place my fans in front of the radiator like this:



    But some reviews on the internet have them placed behind the radiator like so:




    Which is correct?

    Seeing as they are RGB and feature lights it doesn't make sense to place them behind the radiator.

    Can someone help a noob, I haven't built a PC in 10 years and I'm making dumb mistakes.

    The build is a:

    Asus X Apex
    8700K
    CoolerMaster MasterLiquid ML240R RGB
    G.Skill Trident Z 2x8gb 3200mhz 14's
    WD Black 1TB NVMe Dimm.2
    NZXT S340 Elite

    I have tested both way's and to be honest I did not see any difference, so go for front and pull air in to case and exhaust out back and top if you can.Click image for larger version.
