So I've decided to upgrade my cooling to a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 360, (currently I have the maelstrom 120k aio liquid cooler). But my problem is with my case... Currently I own the Thermaltake view 27 and the only place to mount it is on the front, after reading some forums I found it may not be the best idea to mount it there as I'll draw hot air into the case. So what is everyone's thoughts on this? I've got an i5 7600k with a gigabyte gtx 1070 in standard configuration (facing down).
Thanks in advance
Firstly, when you are copy and pasting text just right click the place you plan to paste it and select paste as plain text to avoid formatting. Night viewers see your text as black.
Secondly, the front radiator will PUSH hot air into the case after pulling cool air from outside, this is true but you can also use a high static pressure fan as just normal exhaust case fan in the back to help you defeat this issue. Now you might be able to mount the radiator outside if you are really worried about the heat but just mounting the radiator to the back via the one fan mount and the fans to the radiator then taking off the PCI- e brackets and sliding the block in and if it has enough free tube mount it to the MOBO.
